Clijsters, Roddick Win US Open Series

FLUSHING, N.Y., - The USTA today announced that Andy Roddick and Kim Clijsters have won the 2005 US Open Series through their runs to the finals this weekend at the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters in Cincinnati and the Rogers Cup in Toronto. Roddick and Clijsters both will compete for double prize money at the 2005 US Open with the potential to win a record $2.2 million -- the highest winner's share in men's and women's sports history.

Roddick clinched the US Open Series men's title by advancing to the final in Cincinnati following his win at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington, D.C., two weeks ago. Roddick today was defeated by defending US Open Champion and World No. 1 Roger Federer, 3-6, 7-5.

Clijsters' win in Toronto was her third US Open Series title this summer, having posted victories in the Series-opening Bank of the West Classic in Stanford, Calif., and the JPMorgan Chase Open in Los Angeles last week. Clijsters continued her domination this summer with a 7-5, 6-1 victory today over Justine Henin-Hardenne in a rematch of the 2003 US Open women's final.

Through this weekend, Roddick, Andre Agassi, and Rafael Nadal hold the top three spots in the US Open Series Bonus Challenge standings; Clijsters, Mary Pierce and Ai Sugiyama lead the women. Roddick and Clijsters will play for double the prize money at the US Open. Should either win the US Open singles title, they would earn $2.2 million (double the $1.1 million US Open winner's purse). The second-place and third-place finishers in the US Open Series will receive 50% more and 25% more, respectively. The 2005 US Open Draw will take place at the United Nations Wednesday, August 24.

The 2005 US Open Series leaders through Sunday are as follows:

No no no !

If Patty wins New haven, or perhaps Mauresmo, they will be better ranking than Mary !

If Davenport wins, no matter, Mary will probably stay second !

But for the moment, she's not sure to finsh second ! So wait, and see !

Com on Lindsay, and please Patty and Amelie, LOSE

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

Even if Patty wins in New Haven, she'll have 97 points. Same with Momo. So Mary's second place is pretty safe!

Hi, Domenic. Does Mary have to at least in quarter final so get 50% bonus or at any round? Of course I hope Mary could Win USOPEN

Mary is the most graceful and charming tennis player of the universal, and anyone who love Mary or understand Mary is also a kind gentle one!

She earns 50% on prize money, no matter what round she makes. So if she wins the tournament she gets about 1.5 million!!!
