I don’t buy into the US Open Series as a concept – never have, never will. A situation not helped by LA and Washington getting practically zero coverage here.


Incentivising players, not likely to bag the USO (and thereby double their earnings), amidst a climate of injury and burn out doesn’t strike me as that plausible nor desirable.





Not unlike these results, of which, perhaps, only Dasco’s win over Sweeting doesn’t cause mild whiplash. Unlike, say, Izzy’s shirt.


There’s also the smallish matter of Squerio, last week’s winner in LA, falling in the first round to Tipsy, leaving, guess what, not a single American left in the draw.


Oh, and Roddick falls to #11 next week.
