Day 3 at the US Open was yet another exciting event, as players dug tooth and nail to try and live to fight another day.
Nicolas Almagro, the No. 10 seed, served a dismal 49 percent and only broke one time in 13 chances in a straight-set loss to Frenchman Julian Benneteau. On the women's side, American Irina Falconi came back from a set down to win her first career Grand Slam match against a powerful opponent in Dominika Cibulkova.
However, the biggest upset of the day was in men's doubles. Bob and Mike Bryan lost to Ivo Karlovic and Frank Moser in the first round of a slam for the first time since the Australian Open in 2001. Since that tournament, the Bryans had won 11 Grand Slam titles and advanced to numerous finals.
