Update from Day 3 @ US Open

Another big seed has gone, Andy Roddick is OUT!!!!

Beaten 6-3, 7-5, 7-6, 6-4 by Janko Tipsarevic.  So the draw has opened up nicely for Novak & Andy after the 2 shock results (Berdych out too)  You could also say that maybe Rafa's too as Lubby is out as the potential 4th round opponent for him.

Isner, Youzhny, Simon, Monfils, Wawrinka & Sela all made it through in straight sets.  Kohli needed 4 to get passed fellow countryman Kamke.

What will today bring?  Any upsets?  Here is the full OOP again:

Davydenko v Gasquet is the match of the day.  Maybe Richard will nick a set off Davy but i cannot see another other than Davy in 3 or 4.

Soderling v Dent maybe one to watch.  Taylor was not bad in his 1st round match whilst Robin was all over the place.  The crowd will not be with Robin today and as the draw has opened up he knows if he can get deep in this tournament and passed Fed he has a chance.

Other matches to look for are the all French affair on Court 4 between old guard and occasionally bad tempered Paul-Henri Mathieu v young gun Guillaume Rufin & Kei Nishikori v Marin Cilic who has been in poor form recently, maybe another seed ready to fall?

Anyway whichever matches you watch today, enjoy.
