Here are some of our favorite pictures from the U.S. Open:

Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic: Your U.S. Open men's finalists, ladies and gentlemen. One has the nonchalant smoothness and grace of Neo from The Matrix. The other is Andy Murray.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: Jo started his leaping victory dance a little too early against Martin Klizan, jumping over the net after chasing down a drop shot. Tsonga lost the match.

Serena Williams: They say a picture says a thousand words. So I'll just leave this one alone because I have no words.

Kevin James: This exhibition with Adam Sandler, James, John McEnroe and Jim Courier -- played in advance of the men's quarterfinal between Djokovic and Del Potro -- was a complete waste of time. But can we stop and give the King of Queens star some props on the air he got on his tweener? And should that be before or after we tell him you're actually not supposed to get any air on your tweener?

Novak Djokovic: You know your shoes are having a bad day when CBS decides to start tallying "Knockdowns." Murray might want to thank Adidas for the assist.

Late-night fans: Fans stuck around past 2 a.m. to see if John Isner could hold off Philipp Kohlschreiber. As the woman in the hat can tell you, he couldn't.

Roger Federer: Hey, 31-year-olds aren't supposed to be able to do that.

John Isner: This just about sums up Isner’s 2012 Slam season, during which he never got past the third round in any of the four majors.
