The 2013 U.S. Open didn’t give us a nutty two weeks filled with consistently wacky results. But it did give us Svetlana Kuznetsova’s unfortunate squirrel-chasing uniform.

Here are some more of our favorite photos from the zanier moments of the last Grand Slam tournament of the year. (Click here and here for more photos from the U.S. Open, and check out our fashion hits and misses — sorry, Sveta — from the first week.)

Stanislas Wawrinka: Credit to Stan; he made his moment in the spotlight count. He plays the full five against Djokovic in the semifinals and, when he breaks his racket and incurs a point penalty, he goes out of his way to make sure that stick is dunzo. (Mike Groll/AP)

    Oh come on, Courtney.

    You're critiquing Sveta's cute free spirit dress and saying nothing about Paes and Stepaniks 90's shirts?

    I just don't think you understand Sveta.   That dress is *SO* her.

    Hey pass it along that yellow shirts are bad luck.  Even for the Brazilian guys.   It's a sign of weakness to wear yellow and hope to distract your opponent from the yellow ball.
