Even before Andy Roddick stepped on court for a late night match in Arthur Ashe Stadium, No. 21 James Blake, No. 22 Sam Querrey, 6-foot-9 John Isner and Jesse Witten, a four-time All-America out of Kentucky, had all advanced to the third round.
On the women's side, Melanie Oudin, a 17-year-old from Marietta, Ga., pulled off the upset of the tournament, stunning No. 4 Elena Dementieva in four sets to reach the third round.
