Andy Roddick won the US Open back in 2003, but hasn’t had much luck since then.  Yesterday he was able to avoid a first round upset with a win over fellow American Michael Russel, 6-2,6-4, 4-6,7-5.  It wasn’t the greatest of wins, but a win is a win.

I’m certainly not fooling myself by thinking that was worthy of a championship performance, by any means. But, you know, I don’t know if I would expect that.

Andy Roddick coming back from having a torn abdominal muscle wasn’t sure if he would be able to play, let alone escape the first round.  Fellow American John Isner also moves on with a win yesterday as well as Scottish player Andy Murray who beat Somdev Devvarman of India.

On the women’s side, Venus Williams had to pull out early due to illness.  She was suppose to play her second round match yesterday but revealed that she has Sjogens syndrom, a disease that effects the immune system and cause joint pain.

Maria Sharapova breezes through her second round match against Anastasia Yakinova to move onto the third round of the US Open.  Sharapova is looking to win her fourth major title and will face 26th ranked Flavia Pennetta of Italy in the third round.
