US Open: the draw

26.08.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

The draw for the US Open - the last Grand Slam of the season starting Monday - took place yesterday.

Roger will start his quest for a sixth title in Flushing Meadows against Colombia's Santiago Giraldo (ATP 56). The two players have never met before. Upon his first participation in the US Open last year, Giraldo did not make it past the first round.

Roger could then meet the winner of the match between Israel's Dudi Sela (ATP 94) and Brasil's Thomaz Bellucci (ATP 35). After that, a meeting with Marin Cilic (ATP 27) or Australia's Bernard Tomic (ATP 62) is possible in round three.
Then, Roger could be in for a match against Viktor Troicki (ATP 15) - winner of the Davis Cup with the Serbian team.
The quarter finals bring a possible clash with the man of the moment - Mardy Fish (ATP 8) or once again France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (ATP 11).

In the semis, Roger could have the chance for the re-match of 2010 against Novak Djokovic (Roger was defeated in five sets). The other semi-final would logically be Rafael Nadal vs. Andy Murray.
