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. Mardy Fish 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- 1 6-2. Tsonga Eliminated 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. Nicolas Almagro 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. Roger Federer 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.
