Tennis is a game of varying skill. It's also a sport of varying moods, feelings and emotions. A look some in this edition of the US Open, live from the Arthur Ashe Stadium. (AFP and AP images)
Grateful: Federer acknowledges the cheer after a match. Humility is also what has defined this player for long.
Affection: Celebrity audience members, Alec Baldwin in this case, need some attention, umm..affection, too.
Desperate: Back to Maria. She tries hard to salvage the match against Pennetta, only to fail eventually.
Determined: No such problems for Ms Caroline Wozniacki. Life is good for this Dane damsel, till now at least.
Innocence: That is what we like to believe this image says about the young-lovers Caroline and Rory.
Solitude: All right, we love Maria here so we end this with her as well. Lonely in a big world, that is defeat.
