World No. 2 Rafael Nadal continued to look all the favorite on Thursday night at the US Open, steamrolling Brazil’s Rogerio Dutra da Silva 6-2, 6-1, 6-0 to move into the third round and the first weekend of play.


“I think I play well as the match was going on, I played better and better,” Nadal said. “I am trying to play more aggressive…that’s something that we were trying to improve on, and that’s a more mental thing than a practice thing.”

Also into the third round were Top 10 seeds No. 4 David Ferrer over fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista-Agut 6-3, 6-7(5), 6-1, 6-2; No. 7 Roger Federer rolled over Argentine Carlos Berlocq 6-3, 6-2, 6-1; No. 8 Richard Gasquet defeating Frenchman Stephane Robert 6-3, 7-5, 7-5; and No. 10 Milos Raonic easing past Pablo Andujar 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.

“I feel at home here, after everything that has happened,” Federer said. “I am happy with my performance today. I am results-orientated now. I don’t mind how I play, as long as I win.” Ferrer will next meet qualifier Mikhail Kukushkin.

Other seeded winners were No. 13 John Isner beating Gael “Force” Monfils in a unique late night match in four sets, No. 18 Janko Tipsarevic, No. 19 Tommy Robredo, No. 22 Philipp Kohlschreiber, No. 23 Feliciano “F-Lo” Lopez, and No. 32 Dmitry Tursunov.

Isner in the final night match suffered the wrath of a well liquored-up New York crowd, who seeking an extended match started cheering for Monfils and chanting the Frenchman’s name after Isner went up two sets to love. A shaken Isner took an extended locker room break after losing the third set.

“I’ve never seen anything like this, fans rooting against the top American at the US Open,” said ESPN commentator Brad Gilbert.

Isner faced his post-match interview with class and respect for his adversary.

“I’m so ecstatic right now to be in the third round,” Isner said. “I knew playing against Gael the atmosphere was going to be very electric and that’s what it was…I hope you guys watching had a lot of fun…He gets cheered on wherever he goes and not just in France…It’s good to see him healthy.”

The lone seeded upset on the day was American and No. 26 Sam Querrey falling to Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 7-6(4), 7-6(5), 6-7(5), 6-4. Mannarino will next meet Federer.

Unseeded players of note into the third round were unheralded Brit Daniel Evans defeating Bernard Tomic in four, Ivan Dodig over Nikolay Davydenko, and Jack Sock.

On the women’s side, top-seeded Serena Williams wrapped up her day in a hurry, defeating Kazakhstan’s Galina Voskoboeva 6-3, 6-0.

“I’m just trying to do the best I can,” said the humble Serena. “Just always trying to get a little better.”

Other Top 10-seeded winners were No. 2 Victoria Azarenka strolling past Aleksandra Wozniak 6-3, 6-1; No. 6 Caroline Wozniacki looking sharp in a 6-1, 6-2 victory over Chanelle Scheepers; No. 7 Petra Kvitova defeating Bojana Jovanovski 6-2, 6-4; No. 8 Angelique Kerber struggling past Canadian comer Eugenie Bouchard 6-4, 2-6, 6-3; No. 9 Jelena Jankovic beating Alisa Kleybanova 6-3, 6-2; and No. 10 Roberta Vinci coming from a set down to defeat Lucie Safarova 4-6, 6-1, 6-2.

Azarenka will next meet Frenchwoman Alize Cornet.

“Alize is a great player with a lot of experience,” Azarenka said. “She’s been Top 20 before. It looks like she’s improving much better this year. We had a tough match at the French Open, and I’m really looking forward to play against her again.”

Leading the four seeded upsets on the day was Flavia Pennetta winning the all-Italian match-up with No. 4 Sara Errani 6-3, 6-1.

“I was really aggressive from the beginning, but I think the key was my serve,” said Pennetta, a three-time quarterfinalist in Flushing Meadows. “I was serving really well today and that was the biggest difference…It’s not easy to play one of your friends, but tennis is like this.”

Other upset winners were Japan’s Kurumi Nara ousting No. 19 Sorana Cirstea 7-5, 6-1; Italian Karin Knapp nipping No. 22 Elena Vesnina 6-1, 6-4; and American Alison Riske topping No. 28 Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-2.

Lower seeds into the third round were No. 13 Ana Ivanovic, No. 14 Maria Kirilenko shutting up screamer Michelle Larcher de Brito, No. 16 Sabine Lisicki, No. 21 Simona Halep, No. 24 Ekaterina Makarova straight-setting American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, No. 25 Kaia Kanepi, the No. 26 Cornet, and No. 27 Svetlana Kuznetsova outlasting Shuai Peng in three.

“My tennis is there,” the former No. 1 Ivanovic said about climbing back into the upper echelon of players. “I strike the ball really well. I think I can strike it as well as anybody in the world. It’s just putting it together in the big matches, and doing that over and over again.”

Unseeded American Christina McHale was a three-set winner, but Sachia Vickery lost to Julia Glushko, and Vicky Duval’s dream run was ended by veteran Daniela Hantuchova 6-2, 6-3.

“I think today I couldn’t quite get myself going,” Duval said. “But I’ve had a great experience this whole tournament…and Daniela played really well today. I’m just going to take what I learned here and take it to the other tournaments.”

Highlights Friday when the seeds start to meet in Flushing are (30) Laura Robson vs. (5) Na Li, (1) Novak Djokovic vs. Benjamin Becker, (23) Jamie Hampton vs. (15) Sloane Stephens in an all-American, former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt vs. (6) Juan Martin Del Potro, (1) Serena Williams vs. Yaroslava Shvedova, (3) Agnieszka Radwanska vs. (32) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, American Denis Kudla vs. (5) Tomas Berdych, (24) Ekaterina Makarova vs. (16) Sabine Lisicki, American qualifier Donald Young vs. Florian Mayer, Marcos Baghdatis vs. (17) Kevin Anderson, (25) Kaia Kanepi vs. (8) Angelique Kerber, and (9) Stan Wawrinka vs. “Dr.” Ivo Karlovic.

82 Comments for Nadal, Serena Cruise; Isner Beats Drunk US Open Fans

Rogerisclass Says:

Congrats, Roger.

It is shame that Roger and Nadal play a game by QF. And as 32-year-old Roger..

I expect that Roger takes a title more.

good luck Roger.


Steve 27 Says:

Good match for Rafa, next Dodig


Steve 27 Says:

Wow, is not easy be the top american tennis player nowadays.


Brando Says:

Feel sorry for Big John on that one.


Gina Says:

It wasn’t that the drunk guys didn’t want John to win, they were having such s great time watching an entertaining match & drinking, that they didn’t want their “party” to end. They really wanted a 5 setter. I’m quite sure if there was another set, they would have started to root for John. He should not take it personally!


Michael Says:

Both Roger and Rafa have had it easy in the second round. Roger especially was impressive against Berlocq, a good player and Rafa on the other hand played below his best but still decimated the opponent. What Rafa should watch out is Isner in the fourth round which could be tricky for him.


The Great Davy Says:

Ultimate head to head stays in tack

Guess it was meaning to be? :-)


Steve 27 Says:

Michael, although Isner played the tennis of his life is not the right opponent against Rafa, Heed my words: the only thing to keep in mind is the guy who is number 1, at least for a few weeks.


Okiegal Says:

I too felt sorry for Isner……the crowd was disgusting…..but the young man handled it all with CLASS. Was so glad he won. His on court interview with Brad Gilbert was priceless.


Giles Says:

Vamos Rafa!


Faleye o kehinde Says:

Keep it up Rafa!


roy Says:

““I’ve never seen anything like this, fans rooting against the top American at the US Open,”

hm, ”multicultural” new york culture. anglo american male player versus a black man.
and this is a mystery, brad?


Ben Pronin Says:

Why were they rooting against him?

Doesn’t Isner play Kohls next? The guy who beat him in 5 last year in this very round? It’s far from a given that Isner will play (and trouble) Nadal in the fourth round.


Brando Says:

@Ben: I don’t think they rooting against him out of dislike of him or anything- far from it. Just a simple case of a crowd rooting for the guy getting beat badly since they want more for what they are getting regarding what they paid for.


D Green Says:

I personally dislike watching Rafa play no matter how good he is. The “ritual” before every point is annoying! Would someone please get him the right size underwear and shorts. And that hair,ear, nose routine is for the pits!


josh Says:

Rafa will beat Roger is straight sets in the QF. The old man has nothing left in the tank against the top tier players.


Anna Says:

couldn’t agree with you more D Green, as one of the commentators said – he has more frigging movements than a Swiss watch!!! Does he realize just how much energy he wastes doing this “ritual”?????


queen Says:

Anna, for somebody who dislikes Nadal u should not be concerned how much energy he wastes picking his pants…some people use nervous ticks to calm their nerves, all it matters he wins Vamos!!


hawkeye Says:

D Green/Anna, well if you are not a fan of Nadal, who is your favourite player?

#Curious


Ty Says:

Who is Djokovic’s next opponent, a flea? That’s gotta be the most frosted cupcake path to a major quarterfinal I’ve seen in some time.


Alex Says:

Why hawkeye?

So you can start insulting that player?

#RafaExtremosWithnothingToDo


Anna Says:

D Green/Anna – Personal attacks are old, redundant, and boring. Move on if that’s how you operate. Surely, you have a favorite player you can praise.


Anna Says:

Alex – 75% of your posts are insulting. Why don’t you try reversing that trend. Say, 3 positive to every one zinger would be an improvement, because honestly, who wants to read the same bs over and over. Where’s the tennis in that?


Giles Says:

On a different note Tsonga and Roger Rasheed have parted ways. #TooMuchHiringAndFiring


Ben Pronin Says:

Anna, are you serious?


nadalista Says:

@Giles 12:01 pm;

Puts into perspective Rafa’s long and successful relationship with Uncle T and Francis Roig.

Makes you wonder if some of these players, Tsonga, Sharapova et al know what it is they are looking for.


Ty Says:

I’m wondering if Dolgopolov will ever win an important match at a slam.


hawkeye Says:

Alex Says:
Why hawkeye?

So you can start insulting that player?

No? Can you show me where I insulted a player??

#Ironic


Humble Rafa Says:

Makes you wonder if some of these players, Tsonga, Sharapova et al know what it is they are looking for.

The dynamics are different. I work for my lovely uncle Toni, not the other way round.

Shriekapova and Muhamad Ali hired their coaches. Mine was there before I was born.


Alex Says:

@hawkeye

Maybe I was a bit hasty, labeling you a Rafa-extremo :). There are so many these days, throwing insults around, its difficult to keep track, with the limited time I have to read comments…

In retrospect I did have a engaging argument with you the other day, I was actually impressed by your demeanor. It was wrong of me to me so judgmental.

Seems like I spend most my time hurling back insults at those who bad mouth Roger…:{

If you say you never insult other players, I take your word for it.

I apologize profusely.


hawkeye Says:

Peace Alex. ;)


courbon Says:

Mayer is giving hard time to Andy.
Novak was quite solid.( not great second serve but high procentage on 1st serve )
Bedrych through.


Brando Says:

Mayer hitting big FH’s.

Come on Andy!


M Says:

I heard the very scary stat that Andy Murray had zero UEs in his first set of his current match and one UE in the second set.

o_O


Brando Says:

RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR…………….2 BP’s go begging! :-(


Brando Says:

Commentator called it: Delpo v Hewitt is not a USO match but a exhibition stroll.

Yikes its awful: crowd is so quiet, Delpo is sleepwalking and already has 17 UE’s in 8 games, Hewitt is struggling at 40% first serve in and is just awful.

I’m tuning out dismayed at what I thought would be match of the day! :-(


M Says:

I’m trying to stay with it, Brando – hopefully players & court will come to life


Polo Says:

The crappy play by Hewitt and del Potro is making this match misleadingly exciting.


Kimmi Says:

delpo always has problem with hewitt. Bad match up I guess.


Kimmi Says:

WOW! suddenly hewett makes error at crucial time


Thomas Says:

Del Potro is simply awful todayy. The match itself is extremely dull.


Kimmi Says:

delpo gets third sets, forth set to come. hewiit still fighting.


Kimmi Says:

going to five


Kimmi Says:

hewitt cant serve the set out. c’mon delpo !


Kimmi Says:

6-0 hewitt on tie break???? NO WAY!


Ben Pronin Says:

Wow. This match is nuts. I’m not even sure what’s going to happen now. Physically you gotta favor Del Potro but at this point Hewitt is just going to go all out. Del Potro will have to raise his game to win.


Brando Says:

I love the big guy but…….. 4 hour plus v Lopez, 3 hour plus going into a 5th with Hewitt: the big man will be out of juice by the time it gets to week 2 at this rate!

Right now I doubt he’ll get that far!


Kimmi Says:

Not looking good for delpo


Kimberly Says:

Magical match. Very enjoyable


Kimberly Says:

This is what an Arthur Ashe night session should be. Serena must be steaming mad


Kimmi Says:

wow! delpo getting worse and worse and worse


Kimmi Says:

Rusty is unstoppable right now. he gonna take this one..


Brando Says:

Adios big man! Sad to see you bite the dust this early but truth be told: post Washington you just have been on a downer in some way, shape or form in every event! :-(


tennisfansince76 Says:

I’m actually rooting for Hewitt in this match. Funny thing he was always an automatic root against in his heyday


Ben Pronin Says:

Great shot to save match point. But the flair is missing. I was completely wrong. Physically, huge edge went to Hewitt. Del Potro looks out of it. I think he’s suffering from some kind of injury. Maybe it’s just the wrist, maybe there’s something else. But his form against Garcia-Lopez was horrible.

Double to end it? Very unfortunate. This is a terrible loss for Del Potro. I had a feeling this might happen, too. Like in Australia, upset in 5 on the hard courts. He’s gotta take better care of his body and work towards peaking at the majors better.

Great win for Hewitt though. Great chance to make a serious run. Might even make the quarters.


Kimmi Says:

Congrats to hewitt, what a match!! never knew he still git it. too bad for delpo…hewitt was too good today.


Brando Says:

Yeh I had an inkling Delpo was going to lose today after his struggle v Lopez.

TBH: he kind of scraped through that one and I knew Hewitt wasn’t going to let him off the hook if he played like that again.

The big man has been off post Washington, and is rumored to be carrying a left wrist injury.

He need’s to take better care of himself since he just cannot perform well at 1/4 majors during his peak with his talent.

Not good enough for a man who could do ALOT better.

Well done to Hewitt for the win: a QF place is within reach.

Over and out!


Thomas Says:

When hewitt was in his prime, he was obviously a better player than Del potro. So this result is not that shocking if you think about it.


Kimberly Says:

Like tf76 I was pretty much a root against Hewitt in his heyday but i found myself pulling for him although of course it is a loss for the tournament for delpo and his huge forehand to go.

I am always torn wirh upsets. The natural inclination is to pull for the upset, then later in the tournament when the quarters and semis are filled with b listers you rue having rooted for the upsets!

Very entertaining match for tonight though!


Kimberly Says:

Thomas, I always felt though the game passed Hewitt by during his many injuries,


Eric Says:

If you are shocked by this you don’t pay attention; Hewitt has beaten JMDP in his prime while battling injuries himself. And, yes, it’s just an exho, but anyone remember Kooyang in January when Hewitt simply destroyed the draw (including Delpo, no?)? I thought this match would be just another entry in what Hewitt’s career’s been the past few years – coming an inch away from winning the big matches, but not getting it – so it was nice to be proven wrong (wish I’d picked him in my bracket, though, ha ha…).

Now as for JMDP, I’ve asked this before, but when will we all get over the idea that he’s grand-slam-owning material? The guy doesn’t even reach quarterfinals all that regularly. 2009 USO was a fluke. Like any fluke, it could happen again, but expecting it is silly.


Tennis for Life Says:

Eric
Good post . I agree with you.
Delpo is overrated.
US 2009 was a fluke.
Besides he has ZERO masters titles. Berdych is faaaar better.


Emily Says:

Just want to point out that Delpo got to the quarters at 3 out of the 4 slams in 2012. He’s not had a great year at the slams (other than Wimbledon), but you can’t be #5 in the race (ahead of Berdych) and not been playing good tennis, see Wimbledon semi-final. 2009 was not a fluke, I watched his matches in person that year and he showed pure talent that the surgery hasn’t taken away. I have complete faith in him and his determination to improve and get those titles he wants.

All credit to Lleyton, but I’m crushed for Delpo. That backhand slice that worked at Indian Wells kept breaking up his rhythm during the rallies. He wasn’t showing any emotion and that left wrist is a problem if he wants to be able to hit his backhand. I’ve always liked Rusty, but as a Delpo fan, I’m worried and disappointed in his play tonight.


Eric Says:

I mean, it’s fine to have favorites — we all do! Delpo is certainly a threatening player overall and a particularly scary ball-striker. But, look, people on this site, and in the tennis world generally, talk about JMDP as if he were a perennial slam contender.

Well, he’s just not. Sure, he was hampered by injury and all, but other than the 2009 USO, his biggest accomplishments are a pair of semifinal appearances. When your average performance is losing before the quarterfinals, taking home the title is the definition of a fluke. I actually didn’t know that he had not a single Masters title, but that says it too.

And look, I get that we’re all tired of the same two or three or four guys winning all the big titles and anything that looks like it could challenge their hegemony is shiny and new, but, really — Delpo has a long way to go before he deserves the hype, and I’ve been on record saying that for years and will continue to say it until his career is over without winning another slam. To my mind, Delpo is basically another Baghdatis or someone like that – an at-times truly great player who had a big moment on a big stage and never really got that magic back. Delpo is a lot better and more consistent, but he’s in the same genre.


Perfect fan Says:

But no matter what..delpo is one of the most lovable guys on tour..i have never seen or heard of him giving negative remarks or saying bad about any player(current or past)….
Even after losing tight matches, I have seen him showing respect to his opponent(whoever it may be), even offering a hug with an expression of disappointment…which is so natural, so beautiful…..

Unlike many of the top guys, who the moment they lose wear a plastic expressiond mask and walk off without a word of appreciation for the victor.

I simply love this guy for being so natural..so down to earth.


nadalista Says:

Preach, Dmitry, preach:

http://www.tennisnow.com/News/Totally-Tursunov-Dmitry-Talks-Life-Lessons,-Sugarp.aspx

“Does it surprise you that Rafa Nadal has been able to have one of the best seasons of his career after being off the court for seven months?

It’s a tough topic because a lot of people insinuate that he’s not just taking Flintstones to play so well. We all have to do something a little extra because we have to maintain the level we need to compete. I’m not talking about something illegal or something hard-core. I don’t know, maybe he does have butt implants. That seems to be the topic of the locker room (laughs).

I think he’s definitely exceptional in a lot of ways. Mentally, he’s able to focus in a way that not a lot of people are able to. I think he loves just the grind of it. He loves the challenge of it. I’m not the person who likes to go out and compete for the hell of it. I’d rather go lay on a couch somewhere.

Rafa is able to focus, not to win the tournament and say, like, “Holy crap, I did such a good job! Let’s go party somewhere in Mallorca and Ibiza!” He wins the French Open and the next day he’s practicing for two hours in Queens. I’m sure he takes certain steps to give himself the best chance to get there, whether it’s taking Flintstones or eating correctly. It’s a little bit unfair from our side to say, “For sure, this guy is juicing,” because in our minds, we’d rather believe he’s doing a quick fix instead of believing he works for seven hours like a horse to get there. – See more at: http://www.tennisnow.com/News/Totally-Tursunov-Dmitry-Talks-Life-Lessons,-Sugarp.aspx#sthash.IunMnPBf.dpuf

Giles Says:

http://alturl.com/wc2hr
Rafa meets superfan. Lol


Kimberly Says:

I agree with Eric. I always thought Delpo was a little overhyped. Furthermore his 2009 USO title IMO had a lot do with federer blowing it. I see him as I see Berdych and Tsonga (and soderling) a consistent dark horse who could win if everything fell into place (like it did in 2009)the difference in the career of delpo to Berdych and soderling is small IMO.

Soderling has 2 Gs finals
1 masters title

Delpo has 1 Gs title
2 more gs semifinals
2 masters finals

Berdych has 1 Gs final
2 Gs semi final
2 masters final


Emily Says:

I think this debate about JMDP and the rest of the top 8 can just go round in circles b/c little separates them in terms of the Masters and GS (other than the fact that one of them won one). Do want to put out there that Delpo has more titles than either Soderling or Berdych and he’s 24.

I don’t post much and I don’t want an argument about this tricky subject, but thanks Perfect Fan for pointing out one of the reasons Delpo has set himself apart. His behavior at the net last night after losing was classy (Hewitt is one of his idols) and and I particularly enjoyed USOPEN.org’s article w/ the title “Is Juan Martin Del Potro the nicest guy in tennis?”
http://www.usopen.org/en_US/news/articles/2013-08-24/201308221377199286759.html?promo=relatedcontent


Perfect fan Says:

Why there is no discussion whatsoever about the bracket contest for USO..initiated by Kimberly I guess.

Anyone keeping tabs…..

2. Tuts is back, you won’t be seeing Rafa in a t-shirt with a hole in it any more!

Giles Says:

Well done Rafa! Vamos!


nadalista Says:

Francisco Roig talks about the evolution of Rafa’s game and where the improvements are:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324324404579045151909110182.html


Polo Says:

Del Potro may be overhyped but he deserves the hype. Who else has broken through in a major when the likes of Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and recently, Murray are there? Those four make up a fortress too strong to break down that it is a momentous feat to successfully invade.


nadalista Says:

Izzy out…..thank you Khols. Now Rafa can feast on Khols’ SHBH in practice for Fedal…….


Daniel Says:

Perfect Fan,

Actually DelPo pissed Murray off once saying to him: “you are just like your mother”during a macth when Murray was comolaining about simething, don’t recall it 100%. They go way back from juniors.

I like him a lot , but he is no saint either. That remark was ment to touch a Murray nerve. and he also takes too much time between points and some suspicious MTO. What we call “catimba” in Brazil. A small almost undetected gamesmanship


Daniel Says:

He beat Nadal and Fed back to back in a Slam in semis and final, a feat yet to be repeated by any other player alive. He deserves his hype and he is better than the rest. Not even Murrya or Djoko beat Fed in their first Slam final, DelPo did, Fed helping or not, he was the one blasting insane forehands, crowd against him, and shatterimg a disbelief Fed


Brando Says:

Re Del Potro:

I cannot believe that folks feel he is over rated after just one mere loss.

Geez guy’s: over reacting much?

The following:

1. The guy has been as high as 4 in the world: Berdych, Tsonga cannot say that at all. Only Ferrer from the rest can claim a higher position in the ranking.

He’s a solid top 6 in the world right now: that shows a consistent performer.

2. He’s the only player not named Nadal, Federer, Murray or Djokovic to call himself a GS winner (out of the current big names that are relevant).

That’s priceless. And deserves great respect.

3. He’s been RU at the YEC.

4. He’s reached SF at RG and Wimby where he lost only in the 5th set. Showe he’s got real game on the big stage.

5. He’s been RU at IW and Montreal. He can play great at MS.

6. He has 15 career titles already. That’s more than Berdych, Tsonga. Only Ferrer can claim more: that too by only 5 titles. And yet is 8 year’s his senior.

7. His record / threat level v Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray is far, far greater than Berdych, Ferru or Tsonga.

BOTTOM LINE:

Delpo is the best from the rest aside from the big 4.

The only reason why he struggles is due to his physical fitness.

The big man has a hard time playing back to back long matches, hence why he may pull off 1 or 2 big wins but the 3rd match has him tanked.

If he were to get a handle on that then he would win some more titles for sure.

Do not doubt his talent, game or mental strength since he has got the good’s to win the big prize’s.

Show some respect to the player Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and Murray fear, respect and are most vary of outside of their own unique group.


Kimberly Says:

Brando, u can follow my posts back to 2010 when Delpo came back after the wrist injury. I have always thought he was overrated, not a recent thing for me. At the time delpo was beloved as his 2009 thrashings of rafa gave most rafa haters a lot of hope as this was pre 2011 djoker. And I was shredded for saying he was overrated. But I said it then and I still hold to it. Juan Martin seems like a nice guy and a true warrior mentally but I am wondering if he is too tall and slow.
