Cool USA 9 for 10 in matches played in RG Qualies!!:o

Yes, it's only qualies, but still a big surprise for us.

18 year-old Ryan Harrison, 31 seed Michael Yani, Jesse Witten, and Alex Bogomolov Jr. have advanced to the final qualifying round!!

25 seed Kevin Kim and Ryler DeHeart will play there 2nd round matches tomorrow.

Lestor Cook, who drew Gaudio first round, is our lone loss.

Witten beat 4 seed Marcos Daniel 76, 46, 17-15 and then came back the next day and won 62 61...so no fat jokes.

Very proud of these guys so far.

Re: USA 9 for 10 in matches played in RG Qualies!!:o

I had noticed that it seemed like practically every American was winning, but I had no idea it was nine out of ten at this point. If Ryan Harrison qualifies then he will definitely be back to the form that brought him a bunch of hype prior to his injury. I'd love to see Ryler and Kevin qualify as well. Good luck in the final rounds gang!

Plus Dent and Ginepri made the main draw cut just in time.

Bring on clay USA.

Yani and Witten qualify for French!

Great going for these two US Challenger Pros! Yani has now made 3 of the last 4 grand slams the hard way, winning 3 rounds of qualifying. Best of luck to him to finally win a main draw match and get his 1st ATP tour level win.

Re: Yani and Whitten qualify for French!

I don't understand how the heck Yani made it through to the MD on clay. He really is a great fighter with a lot of heart, but still, this is very surprising to me.

It has been known for a while that Witten's one of the best US players outside the Top 80 on clay.

Fantastic effort by them both, but Yani in particular.
I just wish Ryan would have won today

I totally agree. Yani just had a HUGE heart, and apparently lives for these qualies as he has qualified for 3 of last 4 majors. Qualified on the grass on Wimbledon last year, not one of his best surfaces. The way he's been playing lately, even on hard, I thought Brzezicki would smoke him. If now, Junqueira would surely beat him. And there is absolutely no way he would win a final qualy round match on clay. But he's a champ. Gotta salute him. Love the guy Really nice, no whining on court, just down to business. Mike

2-3 on finals day. Eh. Harrison and Deheart could have won but really a great surprise with Bogomolov, Witten, Yani, Harrison, and DeHeart making it this far.

Jesse Witten will play (25) Baghdatis and Michael Yani will play Lacko. Definitely 2 winnable matches for both of these guys.
