Roger still here
It’s been quite a long time since Roger Federer lost two sets in a U.S. Open match â€” the 2004 quarterfinals against Andre Agassi. It happened again today in the most unlikely scenario â€” a round of 16 match against Russian clay-court specialist. But Federer pulled out a 6-7 (5), 7-6 (5), 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win as day turned to night here in Flushing.
The gates are finally open at Ashe for the night crowd, but the players haven’t gotten on court yet, so it will be at least 9:15 before Andy Roddick-Fernando Gonzalez starts.
