Re: Ryan Harrison
Harrison fell to Rhyne Williams by the score of 7-6(5), 5-7, 3-6.
I can't wait to read the match report in this one. Having followed the scoreboard, I can tell you that Harrison broke Williams at 2-2 to take a 3-2 lead in the third set, but Williams immediately broke back. After breaking Harrison again, Williams fell behind 15-40 while serving for the match, but he then reeled off four consecutive points to win.
Tough loss for Harrison; however, he didn't lose to a scrub. Williams will have a brutal draw in the next two rounds, but it wouldn't be shocking if he won the title. He has a big game. As inconsistent and volatile as he is, however, he could also flame out 2 and 2 tomorrow. I am very interested to see how he does. Harrison will undoubtedly be dejected about another fairly early exit at a Grand Slam, but his future is bright.
In other action, 6'4" serve-and-volleyer Devin Britton beat Bradley Klahn in straight sets and Chase Buchanan avenged his loss to Daniel Cox with a tight straight sets win. So three Americans are into the QFs (and four on the girls' side).
