Andy Roddick fought for four sets and almost three hours to fight off gritty 33-year-old American Michael Russell, winning 6-2, 6-4, 4-6, 7-5. Roddick said that he was paying the price for a lack of matches heading into Flushing Meadows. “It was okay… I’m still trying to find myself,” assessed Roddick. Roddick, who celebrated his 29th birthday on Tuesday, served 13 aces and clocked 42 winners in a match that grew in intensity and entertainment value as it wore on, with Russell matching the former World No. 1 from the backcourt and displaying his trademark fighting spirit and exceptional retrieving skills.
Jack Sock won the USTA Boys' 18s Nationals to earn a wild card into US Open main draw. He did a terrific job in figuring out the French veteran Marc Gicquel in the last round winning 6-4, 6-3, 1-6, 6-4.. Roddick knows how the kid plays as he has hit with him, and realizes how tough it will be for Sock to walk on to the cavernous Ashe Stadium with the spotlight shining on him. Roddick will mix up his attack and won't give Sock many of the same looks. Sock will have to dictate in this match if he wants to win it. He does sport power off the ground, but he’ll have to contend with a swirling wind and court size he has never dealt with before. Sock will entertain the crowd for two sets, but Roddick will take him down in three.
Head to Head: Roddick leads 1-0
These players have never played each other at an ATP World Tour, Grand Slam or Davis Cup main draw event.
