• Harrison and Young kick off the week in Newport

    7/9/12 4:16 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Harrison and Young kick off the week in Newport Americans Ryan Harrison and Donald Young take to the grass once more before the grass season is shelved for the season.

    (WC) Ryan Harrison (6) vs. Ruben Bemelmans

    American Ryan Harrison has had a good, if not great, grass-court season. The No. 6 seed made the semifinals in Eastbourne, where he lost to Andreas Seppi. He was knocked out in the second round at Wimbledon, but he performed well against then-world No. 1 Novak Djokovic.

    He will take on Belgian Ruben Bemelmans, who was unable to make it through qualifying at Wimbledon. The two men have never played before, but Harrison will have a distinct advantage playing on home turf. The American in straight sets.

    Donald Young (7) vs. Michael Russell

    Struggling American Donald Young comes into Newport with an 11-match losing streak. The American has only won two matches all season. His 51st ranking is thanks to a number of good results during the North American hard-court swing last season.

    Young has already lost a match to veteran opponent Michael Russell in 2012 and Russell is a consistent enough player to take advantage of a player going through a bad patch.

    This match should result in a full dozen first-round losses for Young going into the summer hard-court season just around the corner.

Not that I particularly care but why aren't all the Olympic hopefuls from Team USA playing Newport as a warm up? Translation : why is that washed up has been Roddick playing Atlanta on hards when he really needs the grass practice so as not to embarrass himself/his country?

Better than the never was and never will be who beat your boy in 2nd round. Remember lucky 100! Your stalking is getting a bit old. What's your occupation paparazzo? On another note Spadea's record is still in danger. Maybe Russell can go as replacement.

Translation for you : the never was refers to ROSOL! Not too bright if you couldn't figure out who beat your boy aka Nadal in the 2nd round. Hence the 100 reference to his ranking. Sheeeeeeeeeessshhhhh!!!!!!!!!!

How I know who you talk about. You not say Nadal.

Still no reason to put down Roddick as hasbeen. Who are you to judge so negative? Be can and celebrate win by fed instead.
