Djokovic won fans over at the Open with his dead-on impressions of Maria Sharapova and Rafael Nadal among others. His tennis was terrific, too. He became the third youngest man (20 years, three months, 18 days) in the Open era to reach the finals of a Grand Slam before losing to Federer.

Henin's win at the Open pulled her within one of Serena Williams' eight Grand Slam titles and one ahead of Venus. "When I was a little girl, I was dreaming of winning just one Grand Slam in my career, and I've won seven," Henin said. "It's still hard to believe."

Standing at 6-foot-9 1/2, American John Isner gave the tournament some juice in the first week. He took the opening set off Roger Federer in their third round match and served notice (usually at 140 mph) that the former University of Georgia star will be a force in the future.

Maria Sharapova's Open wasn't so pretty. She lost 6-4, 1-6, 6-2 to 18-year-old Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland in the third round, the earliest exit by a No. 2-seeded woman at the U.S. Open since 1981.
