Sloane Stephens USA (4) d. Polina Leykina RUS, 6-4, 6-2
Valieria Solovieva RUS d. Kristie Ahn USA, 5-7, 6-2, 6-4

Some really good wins by the boys today with Sandgren, Sock, Buchanan all taking out seeds in long three-setters.

And on the girls side, Muhammad takes down the top seed.

My one question is...how did a Jr. Wimbledon finalist - Jordan Cox - end up drawing the top seed from India? That's a tough draw and loss for Jordan.

This kid named Yuki Bhambri for real ? what type of pro potential does he have ? Vijay commented that he is for real but then he said the same thing about Somdev, so who knows ???

Impressive win for Sock. Was watching the entire 3rd set. He really does have a big forehand like what I've been hearing and today he displayed a marvelous drop shot that he used to full effect and Souto could not figure out.

Souto was obviously dismayed after the match and cracked his racquet behind the court only to stick it down the trash can.. Luckily I was able to see it first hand but unfortunately wasn't the person that kept it.

IMO Jordan Cox is way over rated .. sure he won 16s K-Zoo but has lost to a lot of lower ranked kids. I watched him at Kzoo this year and he didn't look that good at all...

Ehrat and Poplavsky was great to watch, along with Bhambri and Tomic

That is what I heard as well, from a person who saw him at the OB .

Anyone notice that Oudin was two and out at the junior's Berkley Level 1 at the beginning of August? Now she's in the quarters of the women's U.S. Open? What the heck!? This is 180 degrees different results in 30 days.

Melanie Oudin didn't go 2 and out, her sister did..

Melanie actually has been a pro for a while and hasn't even played juniors since she ended #2 in the ITF...

Search her up on WTA tour, she would win the Berkely national without dropping more than 5 games each match probably.

To the person who asked about Bhambri: He's already won 3 or 4 futures in India and is in the top 500.

Yuki Bhambri #1 seed plays some american kid today. Is this kid any good ? there is so much hype in India about him.

Yuki Bhambri #1 seed plays some american kid today. Is this kid any good ? there is so much hype in India about him. I looked at the draw. I have to assume it's updated. As I see it, Bhambri plays Jack Sock. Yes, Jack Sock is very good and very young. I'd say he's probably 16 still, but he's #1 in the 18s USTA Rankings. This forum is full of references to Jack Sock.

Bhambri just dusted Socks in straight sets ..

"Dusted"? Kind of implies an utter beatdown which 4 & 3 doesn't.

According to the stats, Sock broke Bhambri twice but Bhambri broke Sock 5 times. Sock had 12 fewer points overall. Methinks "dusted" is pretty strong.

Sock is a good junior but Bhambri is just totally on another level. I mean, the guy's the world no.1, reigning AO and Orange Bowl champion, top 500 pro who has won multiple futures events.

Buchanan has been playing well but Bhambri should take care of him without much trouble. Kudla and Sarmiento both have good chances to get to the semis against the winners of Mina/Lindell and Pereira/Herbert respectively.

Is it true that Sarmiento left Evert/usta?

They are playing the matches indoors today. The blog Zootennis has a twitter feed from the site, and apparently Buchanan beat Bhambri in straight sets! Very impressive from Chase.

The other two Americans are both gone Sarmiento lost to Herbert 6-2 4-6 6-2, Mina defeated Kudla 2-6 7-6 6-3. Tomic defeated Fernandes in straights.

Chase with the first set against Mina.

I can see how he can beat Yuki indoor hard. Port Chester courts are very fast IHMO

Finals are Chase vs. Tomic.

Finals are Chase vs. Tomic.

Nice for Chase. He must have excelled in the fast hard indoor courts. I think he has a fighting chance if they still keep it over at Port Chester

Does anyone know how Port Chester got the right to play the boys/girls USO if it rains at the NTC?
