US Open draw

22.08.2008 | Tennis

The US Open held its annual draw ceremony in midtown Manhattan on Thursday. Roger, now 2nd in the world ranking and 4-time holder of the title, will meet Argentina's Maximo Gonzalez (ATP 114) in the first round.

 

Roger's opponent in round two would be a qualifier and round three could be a match against Radek Stepanek (CZE/ATP 29). Roger shares his half with No. 3 Novak Djokovic, No. 5 Nikolay Davydenko and No. 8 Andy Roddick. In 2007, Roger won against Djokovic in three sets in the final: 7-6(4), 7-6(2), 6-4.

***Tilou, my home comp was busted this weekend, compliments of "Fay", but if that's all I have to complain about, I'm one of the lucky ones. It's back up now. I've been busy checking out houses, also.

***Sheleo - you're a hoot. Great report!

Thanks

GO, ROGER, GO!!!!!!!! FIGHT for what is yours!!!
