Archives: US Open 2008, Day 2

In Archives, US Open on August 27, 2008 at 12:12 pm

The US Open is now in its third day. No real major upsets to speak of thus far. Richard (pronounce Reshard) (He is French) Gasquet lost to Tommy Haas. Richard was seeded 12th or 10th I think and Tommy was unseeded. However, Tommy aka “Head and Shoulders as he doesn’t have any neck, was a former number 3 ranked player in the world. He has had bad luck but nonetheless is a quality player. The Frenchman is often inconsistent whereas the German Haas can be a very dangerous player to have in your section of the draw.

Last night, I saw Venus Williams and Roger Federer. They both looked pretty sharp. However, Roger was a bit off at times and not as on point as I usually like him to be. He got the job done though. 6-3, 6-0, 6-3. His opponent, the unheard of Maximo Gonzalez was a quality player. However, a 5’9” stature in today’s tennis world is not going to win major battles. Thus the Argentine was looking at an early exit with a prize of $18,500. How is that for a 1h 25 min job? If I could be so lucky.

Other wins included Serena, Karlovic, Del Potro, Dinara Safina (one to watch on the Women’s draw). Andy Roddick is playing his first round match today as well as Novak Djokovic. So look out for updates throughout the day.

As promised here are the pics..
