US Open scoops and photos

Busy crowded day at the US Open today. Lots of action. Nadal looked much sharper. F-Lo still in his summer malaise. Ryan Harrison scores a dramatic comeback win. Jerzy Janowicz and Bernard Tomic score big wins. Photos of Berankis and Nadal in practice...

In your estimation (I read your tennis-prose link), is Tomic the Qualifier noone wants to play in the First Round? Which Qualifier impressed you the most?

Nalby: 2010 Legg Mason ATP 500 Champion (Welcome back!! )
Nole: 2009 Paris Bercy Masters & 2010 Dubai ATP500 Champion
Soderking: 2010 ABN AMRO Rotterdam ATP500 Champion
Baggy: 2010 Sydney Champion
Gulbis: 2010 Delray Beach Champion
Del Pony: 2009 U.S. Open Champion (Please come back! )

I hope Soderling draws Tomic, what a contrasted matchup.

I am wondering if I should be concerned if Tomic will be The Qualifier for Nalby in the First Round. A Soda match would be fun too; although I hope Soda gets an easier Qualifier.

I personally hope Tomic draws Boredo in the First Round. Boredo can make rising young stars look very good.

Thanks.

But calling Machado a veteran is funny.

Re: US Open scoops and photos

And Harrison resorting to underhand serves Wow. It's a three-set match too. Wouldn't want to see him in a fourth or fifth set should he make the main draw

Nobly; Tomic looked very mature, consistent, intelligent, big serve, mixes up all his shots, but a questionable net game. He looks bigger and stronger now too. But to be honest, there are many other players I did not get to see. Tomic and Harrison but Janowicz has a serious weapon with that serve. Berankis is a nice player too.

Janowicz indeed has a big serve, which is a major asset on this surface. He is, however, extremely unpredictable and his backhand is substandard. I also don't quite agree with your assessment of his movement - I find him gangly and rather awkward - but he might have improved.

But he finds himself in quite an easy section in which any player could make it through (besides Janowicz it's Haider-Maurer, Cipolla, Muñoz-De la Nava).

Re: US Open scoops and photos

Quick question to anyone that can answer: On practice day on this sunday (the 29th), would it be realistic to see any top twenty players and get pictures or autographs? My brother is expecting to see at least one top twenty player, and I don't want him to be disappointed :P Also, anyone know how much parking at the Open costs? Thanks in advance
