He is actually playing Canadian Peter Polansky. Polansky lost in straight sets to Klein, Ball and Greg Jones last month so maybe Johnny will get him. It is played over five sets so hopefully Johnnys fitness will show and he will prevail.
Would be good for John to experience his first ever Grand Slam main draw at the US open. If he was to qualify he would move to around 230 in the world and would almost certianly gain entry into challengers for the rest of the year. I think John is a huge prospect for us and he really only needs one or two big results like this to be able to step up to the challenger level every week of the year.
