In Case You Missed It
Dressed in his traditional black for a night session at the U.S. Open, Roger Federer treated a thoroughly entertained crowd--which included NBA legend Michael Jordan--to a 6-3, 6-4, 7-6(4) victory over Marinko Matosevic. Fededer needed two hours and seven minutes to book his spot in the second round.
In 2013, American men fared historically bad at Grand Slams. Not a single one reached the fourth round of any major--not even at the U.S. Open. The jury is still out for the American contingent in Flushing Meadows this time around, but early returns are decent at best.
American women are off to a hot start at the U.S. Open, and a child is leading them. CiCi Bellis, all of 15 years old, upset No. 12 seed Dominika Cibulkova 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 during first-round action on Tuesday afternoon. Bellis got a wild card into the main draw by winning the girls' 18s national championship.
