Tommy @ US Open !

Still can't accept the loss to Isner,but I guess it has to go eventually. In the meantime,Tommy is #21 according to Judio's live ranking,so he'll probably be within that famous seed from #21-24..
At least I hope he overcame that loss and is ready for the upcoming USO! auf geht's.

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

Since Nalbandian won't play, Tommy should at least be seeded 20th.

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

Not a bad draw.

R1 Qualifier
R2 Kendrick or Vassallo Arguello
R3 Verdasco
R16 Roddick
QF Djokovic

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

It's alright. Decent draw to really work and dig yourself into the tournament. Would have preferred Kohlschreiber's spot for instance, though. Easier third round and I also would have liked Djokovic in a fourth round first a little more than Roddick.

Well, I want Tommy to really go deep here again, and if he reaches the quarters again, he'll probably have done so by beating two top 10 players, so from that point on everything would be possible.

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

Pretty nice draw, should be 90 points at least. Verdasco is also winnable but a very tough one alas...

At the USO you mean? I'm not so sure. Considering his seeding position, of all the players he could have faced in the third round, he got one of only two possible top 10 players, so he wasn't so lucky in that regard. Roddick is also at his very best right now, so ...

But whatever. As I said, if you want to accomplish big things, you have to beat the big ones, and I think that's the only thing Tommy's striving for these days.
At least the first two rounds promise the opportunity of a smooth start.

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

I wouldn't call it an easy draw or the easiest draw ever. The first two rounds are doable...ok...but then we have to overcome top 10 players. Step by step please.

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

I'm kind of nervous about the matchup with Roddick. He's going to be a dangerous opponent. He's going to want this really bad, especially after his loss at Wimby and with the USO being his home tournament. I know Tommy can beat him, but I hope Tommy knows he can beat him!!

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

Pfff, you're getting a bit ahead of things sundog. Roddick would be 4th round and I would already be very pleased with that, looking at his results of the last few weeks. And he would have overcome Verdasco, that would be a huge thing already.

I did see that Haas has a positive record against Verdasco and Roddick, but these are not very representative though...

Re: Tommy @ US Open !

I say Verdasco won't reach the third round.
