In response to questions about the winning doubles team earning a MD WC into the US Open, they do!
Jamie Hampton and Melanie Oudin earned that WC last year by winning the tournament. Unfortunately they lost first round at the Open to Chan/Chuang (eventually finalists) 6-1,6-1.
So now for my synopsis of todays matches...
Brodsky Def. Ahn
I only saw the end of this match, but can guess that Gail probably suffered one of her error filled sets in the second to lose it 6-0.
Vandeweghe def. Cecil
Good display from both girls, CoCo was just better on the bigger points
Boserup def. Muhammad
I watched all of this match, and was crushed when Asia lost
She had her chances, but unfortuantley Boserup played way to well today. Boserup played amazingly well from the baseline and really put the pressure on Asia. CoCo will have her hands full tomorrow, and I expect a lot of very hard hitting rallies.
Also, news/rumors from around the grounds today is that CoCo Vandeweghe signed a 1 Million dollar contract with IMG.
