US Open tennis 2010 is nearing the big stages. The US Open tennis 2010 results have favored the top seed, yet the US Open schedule is about to get tougher. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Carolina Wozniacki, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams have largely cruised thus far. But if these powerhouses are to face each other on championship weekend, they have just a few more stages left to go. On Labor Day, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule provided some tests, yet the big names got through to the quarterfinals again.
The most revealing match was between Carolina Wozniacki and Maria Sharapova. Top-seeded Wozniacki hadn’t broken a sweat in the first three matches, yet Sharapova came off a perfect win over Beatrice Capra. Would Wozniacki falter once again at a Grand Slam once she got tested?
For now, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has Wozniacki still answering all her critics. She got her first significant test, losing more games to Sharapova than she had in the entire tournament. Yet the results were the same, as Wozniacki went through with a 6-3, 6-4 victory.
Wozniacki now moves on to the quarterfinals, where the likes of Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams are waiting ahead. In addition, seventh seed Vera Zvonareva, 31st seed Kaia Kanepi, and unseeded Dominika Cibulkova are also in the round of 8. But the US Open tennis 2010 quarterfinals are starting with two power matchups today.
Kim Clijsters will get her biggest test to date against fifth-seeded French Open runner up Samantha Stosur, while Venus Williams faces French champion Francesca Schiavone. After Wozniacki faced her first difficult fight, it is up to Clijsters and Williams to match it and reach the US Open tennis 2010 semifinal round.
For the men, they still have a fourth round to complete, after starting the round of 16 yesterday. Federer made it to the quarters, surviving a second-set test against Jurgen Melzer. Surging Novak Djokovic eliminated the USA’s Mardy Fish in straight sets, while Robin Soderling rallied from a first-set loss to Albert Montanes.
Today, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has Rafael Nadal looking to join the quarters against fellow Spaniard Feliciano Lopez. Meanwhile, the last American man left, Sam Querrey, faces off against upset-minded Stanislas Wawrinka.
But the big matchups of the day are likely to come from the women’s side, as their top seeds are already being paired against each other. Despite the favorites making things conventional thus far, it would make for a star-studded weekend if they kept going. It would help redeem the US Open tennis 2010 results for being predictable so far, at least.
