The draw is out. Jurgen will play Eric Prodon of France. From what I can find he is a clay court specialist. He did play Miami and that is the only hard court tournament he has played.
Jurgen should win this one I feel.

You all may know that hurricane Irene is heading for New York and may cause a lot of delays for the USOpeen. It seems they always have rain, but this one is very serious. I am nervous for eveyone in New York City. I hope it will lose some of its strength before it reachs New York.

He should win against Prodon. I think this is his first US Open Maindraw tournament and he is now 30 years old.

Jurgen met children at a New York childrens hospital. There are some nice pictures on the official web site for the US Open.

Thanks I will go look them up. He sounded like he enjoyed doing it
08-29-2011, 01:12 PM
Indeed! And his next round as well. He actually has a very good draw, because Youzhny and Gulbis aren't too good in form either. Chance to get 180 points here!
But let's take it 1 match at a time...
08-30-2011, 06:45 PM
YES! 6-2 7-6 6-2 victory over Prodon. That feels great!

I like the 6-2 acores, but what happened in the second set. I thought Jurgen was up a break. I wish they would show him on TV here. Maybe if he works his way far into the draw I will be able to watch a match. Go Jurgen.

Jurgen is playing in all three events he can play in. Today in doubles he and Petzschner won against Santiago Gonzalez/Jamie Murray easily 6-3, 6-0.
09-01-2011, 10:50 PM
Jurgen played mixed doubles today with Benesova. They lost to the second seeded team of Srebotni,/Nestor 1-6, 6-3, tiebreak 7-10
Tomorrow Jurgen plays Igor Kunitsyn on court 6 which means no TV for us. Darn.
09-02-2011, 09:50 PM
I felt certain he was going to pull it out. The score in the final set tiebreak was 5-7. It was so close. Now we need to cross our fingers for the mens doubles tomorrow.

I read that Jurgen's loss to Igor will drop Jurgen out of the top 20 down to 23. He lost 135 points.
I hope it is not that huge a drop. Jurgen really needed to win that match and should have IMO.
09-03-2011, 07:45 PM
YEAH!! Jurgen and Petzschner won against Erlich?Ram 7-6 (7-2), 6-2
Good win for them.
There next round opponents have no been determined yet.
09-05-2011, 11:12 PM
YES! Jurgen and Petzschner won again. Today they beat the team of Stakhovsky/Youzhny 7-6 (3), 6-3.
Their next opponents are yet to be determined.
In mixed doubles, Petzschner lost today in a close match. He really is a good doubles player.
I was able to watch both matches on the computer.
Can anyone find pictures from the doubles matches? I never can
09-08-2011, 06:50 PM
WOW! Jurgen and Petzschner are now in the Semi-finals. Today they defeated Marrero/Seppi 6-1, 6-2.
There next opponents have yet to be determined.
