Great returns for Nishikori, ousts Raonic at the US Open

Last night’s match between Milos Raonic of Canada and Kei Nishikori of Japan felt like a referendum on the future and viability of power tennis.

US OPEN SCENE: No muss, no fuss for Raonic's hair

NEW YORK (AP) What's the secret of Milos Raonic's perfect hair? He's not telling but maybe his slick, jet-black, Cary Grant style will speak for itself.

Djokovic’s result surprised me not at all; Gulbis’s quite a bit. They way that he tore through Berdych really just highlights...
