    Berdych, Fish in second-round action at US Open Tomas Berdych and Mardy Fish will take to the court as the top half of the draw takes the court in the second round.

    Tomas Berdych vs. Jurgen Zopp

    World No. 7 Tomas Berdych hasn't been playing his best tennis this summer. He had a pair of shocking first round exits at Wimbledon and the Olympics and he won just one match each at the Toronto and Cincinnati Masters events. Berdych made the trip down to Winston-Salem last week however, and advanced to the final, losing to John Isner in the title match.

    The No. 6 seed faces Estonian Jurgen Zopp in his second round match. Zopp is ranked 80 in the world; most of his ranking points are gathered on the Challenger circuit. He has successfully qualified for some main tour events, but he seldom gets past the first round. This match should result in a straight-set win for Berdych.

    Mardy Fish vs. Nikolay Davydenko

    This could be one of the better early round match-ups at the US Open this year. Russia's Nikolay Davydenko's ranking has dipped to No. 47 in the world, far below his career high of No. 3 back in 2006. But he is still capable of playing great tennis. Most recently, he made the third round in Cincinnati, beating Alexandr Dolgopolov in easy straight sets before retiring against Novak Djokovic.

    Mardy Fish has had a great hard court season with a semifinal and two Masters quarterfinals coming into the US Open. He is ranked 25th in the world, but just a few months ago, he was ranked inside the top 10.

    Davydenko and Fish have split wins at two each, but Fish won their last hard court meeting easily.

    Prediction - Fish is in good form. Expect the American to come through in 4.
