USO R1: Menendez-Maceiras (Q) def. Kypson (WC) 6-4 7-6(9) 6-1

Disgusting result.
One would think Kypson would have been humiliated but he held his own. Kypson fought back in the 2nd break to get back on serve while MM served for the set and took a 5-0 lead in the breaker but lost it still. This broke him completely and never recovered in the third.

M-M in a 2nd round of a slam is an utter disgrace and not deserved. I hope he gets triple bageled by Delpo.

Have nice life after tennis Malisse, you were a legend!



Roger Federer was highly embarrassed at Roland Garros on Sunday afternoon. And he's only himself to blame for letting his tubby fiancee Mirka sit in the stands.
Poor old Fed - he offered as much resistance to Rafael Nadal during the French Open as Mirka does when the dessert trolley appears. - The Mirror

Kypson needs to go play college tennis. It would be a mistake to go straight pro

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

Menendez-maceiras being in the second round is far better than kypson having gotten there

AMM taking advantage of the draw as he got 1 of maybe 5 players he could beat. Don't know how Kypson lost that 2nd set TB.

I think the USTA should give the Jr. Tournament winner a WC into qualies and give a more deserving player a MD WC

EXACTLY. A junior isn't developed enough to really slug it in the main draw...Kypson should have been put in the QD where he actually had a chance of winning a match (that is if he didn't face Shapovalov...that would have been debiliatating lol). TBH I'm still surprised that Opelka/Mmoh didn't get one...both of them deserved it over someone Kypson and Eubanks...Kypson and Eubanks should have been put in the QD and Opelka and Mmoh should have been in the MD if we're being honest here.

10 rank of Nadal when he beat him at Wimby.
9 ATP World Tour quarterfinals.
8 December, 1984 is his birthday.
7 straight seasons in the top 200.
6 ATP Challenger Tour titles.
5 ATP World Tour doubles title finals.
4 games won against Djokovic.
3 wins against the top 10.
2-0 record against Nadal.
1 ATP World Tour singles semifinal.
0 ATP Masters wins, ATP Singles finals/titles.
When will your fave reach DUSTIN?

Mmoh? Really?

Anyway, really happy for Menendez. It'd be a shame if he never won a Slam match in his career. Can't understand @Foxxer 's hatred.

Meanwhile, there are first rounds like Monfils-Chardy, RBA-Seppi and Querrey-Simon...

Just tradition that the Boys 18 winner at Kalamazoo gets the USO main draw WC, we've been doing it forever

The second set breaker was by far the most interesting thing I saw all day, and I watched most of Donaldson-Pouille, Coric-Zverev, Dolgopolov-Struff, and Shapovalov-Tsonga

Just because we have been doing it forever, does that actually mean that it is the right thing to do?

That was also in a time where 16 year old, 140lbs kids were winning Grand Slams. Not fair to a guy like Shapovalov that could be poised to make a deep run here that he had to waste an extra 3 days on court when he should have been given a WC.

No, but Mmoh is not deserving of a MD WC at all.

Excellent point! Once upon a time, tennis players just played tennis. They didn't do weight training, and their only cardio was chasing after a tennis ball, whether in practice or in a tournament. And forget the nutritionist, core breakdown & strengthening, or anaerobic recovery drills. In other words, the men who played the pro tour and the boys who won Kalamazoo weren't all that different. Now that the gap between the ATP men and the Kalamazoo boys is wider than the Grand Canyon, the the Kal winner no longer deserves a wild card into the main draw. Give the kid a WC into qualies. The competition there might still be a little over his head, but at least he stands a decent chance of winning a match or two. Plus the rigors of qualifying will help the young player's development far more than getting humiliated in the 1R.
