An interesting player to check out in this draw is Steve Johnson. As the 2011 NCAA tennis champion, he will receive a Wild Card and compete in the US Open. He is playing in Los Angeles this week and will meet Gilles Muller in the first round (with the winner to meet Fish). He has talent and could surprise someone at the US Open, so it might be worth checking out his form now.
Johnson has been killing people in college. Undefeated this year and ranked #2(behind Mitchell Frank, but will change soon). He's going to try and make it 4 national titles in 4 years for his Trojans then take the individual title.
