US Open day 4 round up
The 4th day saw the action of second round in the event of
Men’s Singles. Many renowned players took the court along
with some new comers to get a seat in the next round.
Several contests went according to the script while some
upsets were also produced by the opportunists.
The Summary of the Day’s action is recounted below.
The 23rd seeded American Fish was the first man of the day
to contest on the Arthur Ashe Stadium and he got his hands
full against the former world no. 3 and 2009 World Tour
Finals Champion Nikolay Davydenko of Russia. The Russian
is struggling to find his form for about two and a half year
but this time he pushed Fish to the limits for the first two
sets taking both but Mardy tussled his way back from two
sets down and won it comfortably in the end 4-6 6-7(4) 6-2 6-
The Fierce Frenchman had to taste defeat in just 2nd round
of this year’s United States Open where he was considered
a Surprise Package for the others. He played against Martin
Klizan from Slovakia and it looked like he under-estimated
his opponent and came without a strategy. Klizan won a
rather simple bout in four sets 6-4 1-6 6-1 6-3 sending
Tsonga crashing out of the tournament.
Spain’s no.3 and 11th seed Almagro survived a five-set
Tussle against Germany’s Philipp Petzschner who was
unseeded coming into this tournament but he played
valiantly taking the two set to one lead. Nicolas was far from
done and endured what his opponent had to throw at him
and collapsed with emotions to celebrate his victory. His
score-line was 6-3 5-7 5-7 6-4 6-4.
Swiss Maestro was scheduled in the night session of Arthur
Ashe Stadium and he was facing Bjorn Phau of Germany.
Phau has defeated Federer once but that was a story of
1999. Federer leaded the head-to-head 2-1.
Bjorn was unable to find a response to Roger’s Brilliance
and Fed Express rolled in straight sets 6-2 6-3 6-2.
