"You're too good!"

Federer tops Blake to reach 10th straight Slam semi

NEW YORK -- James Blake made Roger Federer work a whole lot harder than he's used to, and it still wasn't nearly enough.

The top-seeded Federer dropped a set against No. 5 Blake and faced all kinds of trouble before pulling out a 7-6 (7), 6-0, 6-7 (9), 6-4 victory Thursday night at the U.S. Open to reach a record-tying 10th consecutive Grand Slam semifinal.

Federer was so masterful at times that even Blake and the partisan crowd in Arthur Ashe Stadium showed their admiration. Some of Federer's most impressive offerings drew shouts of, "You're too good!" from Blake, who came into the night 0-4 against Federer, having lost all 10 sets they had played.

This guy is crazy. I'm hoping as a sports fan that Nadal and hopefully Roddick can slow him down a little bit but the talent level is just crazy. Every math he's in he makes it a walk in the park.
