It's been an interesting couple of weeks at the U.S. Open. After dealing with torrential downpours for much of the tournament, Andy Murray and Thomas Berdych had to battle another one of Mother Nature's elements during Saturday's men's semifinal: some incredible winds that gusted upwards of 20-30 mph during the match.
How crazy were the winds? Check out this gust that blew over Berdych's chair and scattered debris onto the court as Murray was serving during the second set. It's a good thing both players weren't catching a breather between games or they might have ended up on the court as well.
Murray ended up beating Berdych (and the wind) 5-7, 6-2, 6-1, 7-6 (7) to advance to Sunday's Monday's final. The second semifinal between Novak Djokovic and David Ferrer was delayed in the first set with the Spaniard up 5-2. That means the U.S. Open will have its fifth straight Monday finish.
