Steve Darcis qualifies for US Open!

The Belgian wins 3R qualifying match 6-3 6-7 6-2 over Brazil's Julio Silva.



Steve Darcis was the winner of ATP Amersfoort earlier in the summer. Really pleased he has qualified for the US Open!

Re: Steve Darcis qualifies for US Open!


For me better news from US Open qualifying is that in the final round will play the two Poles against each other. The one Pole in the main draw is certain.

I've got mixing feeling about this match. Przysiężny has never played in Grand Slam event but Q-bot was in 3rd round last year so he has a lot of points to defend. The best solution: two more withdraws, Przysiężny's victory and Q-bot as a lucky loser to the main draw

Re: Steve Darcis qualifies for US Open!

Depending on the draw I think he can win a match or two in the main draw, Silva had beaten some decent opponents earlier, it is a well-earned qualification for Darcis not a fluke.

Kubot should win this match, but I hope he won`t meet Roger in the first round He can fight against Simon, Berrer or even Robredo on hard court

I'd like to see Ołówek or Q-bot against FedEx inthe 2nd round 2-6 1-6 3-6 or something like that but finally a Polish player on Eurosport. The only time a Pole was there in 1996

Kowalski against Chang or Muster?

Yes, it will be interesting to see Kubot/Przysiezny vs Federer, but they will have no chance.

not true
last year we had Kubot vs Melzer in Vienna 2nd round
earlier was Dabrowski in 1996 I think (not sure about that though)
