The US Open tennis 2010 schedule is inching forward. Already, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has featured early tests, although the results still have the big names around. Andy Roddick is gone, but the other powerful men and women are doing fine so far. As Labor Day weekend approaches, the major contenders will begin to get closer to each other. For yesterday, the US Open tennis 2010 results had Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki, Novak Djokovic, Robin Soderling and others march through the schedule.
At Arthur Ashe Stadium, Federer got his second consecutive straight set win against Andreas Beck 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. Yet even Federer couldn’t match the dominance of Carolina Wozniacki, who did not lose a single game against Kai-Chen Chang.
Thus far on the US Open tennis 2010 schedule, Wozniacki has only lost two games in her first two matches. But these results won’t mean anything if she doesn’t keep winning, in some fashion, up to the final weekend.
Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic, Robin Soderling and Jelena Jankovic returned after narrowly surviving round 1. The US Open tennis 2010 results improved for Soderling and Djokovic, as they won in straight sets. However, Jankovic went to three sets for the second straight match, but she again survived over Mirjana Lucic 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. But the highest-seed who did lose was men’s sixth seed Nikolay Davydenko, who went down in straight sets to Richard Gasquet.
While the top seeds try to move on, fans are already looking for the next Melanie Odin at Flushing Meadows. Thus far, the US Open tennis 2010 equivalent is thought to be Beatrice Capra, ranked 371st in the world. She upset No. 18 Aravane Rezai in three sets, as Capra is the youngest and lowest-ranked player to reach the third round.
With Labor Day weekend on the horizon, the tournament will now start weeding out the upstarts, or show which ones could make some noise in the second week. The second round will end today, with the third and fourth set to get under way and heat things up in the next few days.
Today, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams among the competitors. Clijsters and Williams can already move on to the round of 16, while Nadal and Murray are among the last to finish the second round.
Of course, a lot of these matches — if not all of them — could be postponed due to Hurricane Earl. If so, then the US Open tennis 2010 schedule may be pretty cramped this weekend. After the intense heat this week, intense rain is set to balance it out, although the play has been more stable than the weather thus far.
