Okay, it's time to give Odesnik some love. After qualifying in D.C., he's beaten Adrian Garcia and more impressively, Juan Martin Del Potro, to reach the round of 16 where he'll face either Benjamin Becker or John Isner.
The Del Potro score was 3-6, 7-6(10), 6-3
Odesnik is only 21-years-old. This result gives him an excellent chance to receive another U.S. Open wild card. He definitely deserves one IMO. He's currently ranked #189, and has had some good showings on the Challenger circuit in additon to his performance in D.C.
Wayne is a good grinder, his problem is lack of a major weapon. Good win for him over Del Potro today, but Wayne's first ATP win was long overdue. I've been saying that Odesnik is going to win an ATP match sooner or later since 2004 and he finally did it yesterday.

Chaos, do you know why there is an extra line between the sentences in your posts? It's strange that only yours are like that.
Anyway, it's nice to see Wayne on TV (Tennis Channel), but it's making me giggle that one of the stripes on his shirt points straight to his crotch. Not sure when he started wearing Lotto clothes and shoes, but it's nice to see him in some color.
