US Open tennis 2010 was not delayed by Hurricane Earl. As such, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule stayed intact, and the US Open tennis results also stayed stable. Heading into the weekend, the top seeds are still around, waiting to get over the hump into the deeper rounds. In the next few days, those deeper rounds on the schedule will get closer, and the results will presumably get a little tougher. US Open tennis 2010 action this weekend will be a crucial step for the prospective champions.
Yesterday, Rafael Nadal, Venus Williams, Kim Clijsters and Andy Murray got through to the next step. Clijsters and Williams are already in the round of 16, as they each only lost three games in their third round matches. Nadal had trouble with Denis Istomin in the second and third sets, yet still battled his way through.
The biggest 2010 US Open tennis fireworks may not have been on the schedule, as a fight between spectators on Thursday night reached the Internet. That fight and Andy Roddick’s antics a few days ago, have helped overshadow the actual play.
Presumably, things will get more civil as the tournament heads for its second week. The US Open tennis 2010 schedule today has Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki, Robin Soderling and more in action, as the round of 16 starts taking shape.
Today’s US Open tennis 2010 results will be noteworthy, with such matches as Maria Sharapova vs Beatrice Capra, and Novac Djokovic vs James Blake. Last year’s schedule saw Sharapova lose to Cinderella darling Melanie Odin in the third round, so this is where Capra will truly prove herself. Meanwhile, Blake tries to continue his comeback, while Djokovic attempts to improve himself after two difficult matches.
Wozniacki has been dominant thus far, but is still a long way from her big tests. Federer has been impressive as well, as he is out to show that his time hasn’t passed yet. However, his problems lately have been when he gets to the quarterfinal round.
That stage of the US Open tennis 2010 schedule isn’t far off now, as the third round will near an end after today. The first weekend of a Grand Slam is usually when the big upsets and surprises begin to form. Once the third and fourth round results come in, there will be a better idea of whether this is a conventional tournament, or one that will turn topsy-turvy.
For the first time, the US Open tennis 2010 TV schedule will include CBS today, as they begin their coverage from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
