So far, three of the six Americans that have competed have advanced to the second round.
Eight more American men are in action today, but there are two all-American matches, meaning the highest number that can advance is six. The USA is looking for someone to follow deep into the tournament, but they need to get out of the opening round first.
Here are the Americans in action today:
Alex Bogomolov Jr. vs. Steve Johnson: Bogomolov is the far more experienced player, and will advance in straight sets.
Robby Ginepri vs. Joao Souza(BRAZIL): Ginepri could be in some serious trouble here. He's nowhere near the form that carried him to the 2005 US Open semis.
John Isner vs. Marcos Baghdatis(CYPRUS): (Discussed in the fourth slide)
Andy Roddick vs. Michael Russell: America better hope Andy can get through this one. If Russell pulls the upset, he won't make it very far, whereas Roddick has an outside shot at making a run.
Jack Sock vs. Marc Gicquel(FRANCE): Sock, the USTA Boys' 18s national champion will be in over his head in this match. At best, Sock will take a set.
Ryan Sweeting vs. Denis Istomin(UZBEKISTAN): Sweeting has a good chance to defeat Istomin, but I wouldn't say he's the favorite. Expect Istomin to give him fits in a four-set victory.
