While tennis is under the gun with the Davydenko betting investigation, I think I’d be remiss not to mention that on the brighter side what a great US Open Series line-up today in Washington and San Diego.
I took a shot at the Series earlier this week, so I’ll gladly do an about face and give the events, especially D.C., some credit.
In Washington today you have a terrific schedule with Tommy Haas meeting the 6-foot-9 American serving machine John Isner – maybe the future of American tennis is indeed BIG with he and Sam Querrey in the mix.
My man Gael Monfils faces Marat Safin, who’s past his prime but worth a look especially against the exciting Frenchman.
And the headliner features Andy Roddick and Hyung Taik Lee, and I think Lee has a good chance to pull the upset.
On the other coast in San Diego features an equally attractive lineup.
Maria Sharapova battles the red hot Sania Mirza while Venus Williams faces the even hotter Anna Chakvetadze. My girl Maria Kirilenko is also in action against Elena Dementieva. And Nadia Petrova and Patty Schnyder meet.
So no denying quite a day in tennis, on court that is. Enjoy it, especially if you are lucky enough to catch some of this on TV or live in action.
