 Unbelievable! Sampras Beats Agassi Suarez and Ruano Pascual Keep it "Caliente" Gasquet Clinches Boys' Title USOpen.org's Play of the Day USOpen.org Post-Match Analysis presented by Prudential Financial Kirilenko Walks Away A Champion 2002 USOpen.org e-highlights presented by Lincoln


Unbelievable! Sampras Beats Agassi

  • Pete Sampras has done what no one thought was possible two weeks ago. After becoming the youngest US Open champion ever in 1990, Pete Sampras is now the oldest to win the Open since 1970, and the oldest to win a major tourney since 1975. Sampras used an incredible 83 winners, including 33 aces, to power his way to a 6-3, 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 victory over a game, but overwhelmed, Andre Agassi.
  •  
  •  Suarez and Ruano Pascual Keep it "Caliente"
  • No. 2 seeds Paola Suarez and Virginia Ruano Pascual kept things hot as they burned past Elena Dementieva and Janette Husarova in the US Open women's doubles final on Sunday, taking the match, 6-2, 6-1.
  •  
  •  Gasquet Clinches Boys' Title
  • Sixteen-year-old Richard Gasquet of France, the top seed in the boys' singles event, captured the junior boys' US Open singles title, defeating No. 5 Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, 7-5, 6-2, in the final. The victory gave the young Frenchman his second junior Grand Slam title of the year.
  •  
  •  USOpen.org's Play of the Day
  • The play that made the point wasn't anything spectacular, but what it stood for was simply unbelievable. Pete Sampras, written off by so many people over the last few months, had just become the 2002 US Open Champion -- for the fifth time.
  •  
  • Pete Sampras beat Andre Agassi here in 1990 for his first ever Grand Slam, and he has done it again in 2002.
     
  • Kirilenko Walks Away A Champion

  • Maria Kirilenko upset No. 1 seed Barbora Strycova in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, to win the US Open girls' singles championship. Clearly dominating the 16-year- old from the Czech Republic, Kirilenko plugged away at Strycova's groundstrokes, causing her frustration to alter her game.

  • What a tournament! When we look back, the 2002 US Open will certainly go down as one of the most memorable of all-time. In the end though, four familiar faces were waiting for us on finals weekend. Serena. Pete. Venus. Agassi.

     Sampras Defeats Schalken To Reach Final Agassi Tops Hewitt, Returns To Final Agassi vs. Sampras: Clash of the Titans Serena Dethrones Venus as Open Queen USOpen.org's Play of the Day Boom Boom Blasts Mac USOpen.org's Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi


    Sampras Defeats Schalken To Reach Final

  • It was an un-Pete Sampras performance -- except for the tennis. He grunted. He pumped his fist. He shouted, "Come on!" and egged on the already partisan crowd.
  •  
  •  Agassi Tops Hewitt, Returns To Final
  • After burying yet another forehand into the net, Lleyton Hewitt slammed his hand against his racquet in disgust. His aim, as it had been all afternoon, was misguided. Andre Agassi, doing everything Hewitt did, only bigger and better, knocked off the world's No. 1 player, 6-4, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (1), 6-2, Saturday to book a spot in the US Open men's singles final against old foe Pete Sampras.
  •  
  •  Agassi vs. Sampras: Clash of the Titans
  • Before the first ball was tossed at the US Open 13 days ago, the thought of having a slumping 31-year-old Pete Sampras and the seemingly distracted 32- year-old Andre Agassi meet in their third US Open final on Sunday would have been considered absurd. But with their convincing semifinal victories on Saturday, the two friendly rivals have another opportunity to disprove the critics who said that it was high time they thought about hanging up their sweat towels.
     
  •  Serena Dethrones Venus as Open Queen
  • What a difference a year makes. Serena Williams, who last lost to her older sister Venus Williams on this same court one year ago, cruised to her third straight Grand Slam title of 2002 with a 6-4, 6-3 victory Saturday night in Arthur Ashe Stadium.
  •  
  •  USOpen.org's Play of the Day
  • There comes a crucial time of a match when one man steps up and the other is left to freeze-frame the point over and over again on the plane ride back home. Without question, Andre Agassi and Lleyton Hewitt reached that boiling point in the second set tiebreak of their semifinal showdown on Super Saturday at the US Open.
     
  • Boom Boom Blasts Mac

  • Saturday started with a three-set battle between Sampras and Schalken. It continued with a four-setter between Hewitt and Agassi. But neither of these matches could compare with what took place Saturday evening. No, not Serena and Venus' match. We're talking about the match of the century, the battle of all ages. McEnroe vs. Becker.

    USOpen.org's Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

  • Serena Williams' victory tonight at the USTA National Tennis Center now makes her a three-time 2002 Grand Slam Champion and a two-time USOpen.org Player of the Day.

     It's a Family Affair Venus Outlasts Mauresmo Serena Follows Script to Gain Final Berth Double Trouble Raymond and Mike Bryan Claim Mixed Nostalgia and Fun Lures Fans to Seniors Mirnyi and Bhupathi Win Men's Doubles Championships And Then There Were None Two American Beauties Remain

     
    It's a Family Affair

  • Serena Williams hit 34 winners, including 13 aces, and defeated Lindsay Davenport 6-3, 7-5 today. Tomorrow night she'll face older sister Venus for the second straight year. Earlier, the two-time defending champion advanced by beating Amelie Mauresmo, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 after suffering a hand blister midway through the second set. Together, the sisters have won the last three consecutive Opens dating back to 1999.
     
  • Venus Outlasts Mauresmo
  • In the most competitive US Open women's semifinal in two years, defending champion Venus Williams overcame a bad blister on her right hand, and a superb performance by France's Amelie Mauresmo, to move into her third straight US Open final on Friday.
     
  •  Serena Follows Script to Gain Final Berth
  • Play it again, Sam. And again, and again, and again. Sister Act IV is becoming an annual production on the hard courts of the USTA National Tennis Center as Venus and Serena Williams battle for the second consecutive year in Arthur Ashe Stadium for the US Open women's singles title.
     
  • Double Trouble
  • With brilliant passing shots, well-placed lobs and quick net play, the sixth- seeded doubles duo of Elena Dementieva and Janette Husarova defeated third- seeded Cara Black and Elena Likhovtseva in straight sets, 7-5, 6-1.

  •  Raymond and Mike Bryan Claim Mixed
  • If the mixed doubles final was any indication of how Friday's matches were going to turn out, then tennis fans were definitely going to get their money's worth. The first match to take place on Arthur Ashe Stadium featured No. 2 seeds Lisa Raymond and Mike Bryan vs. Katarina Srebotnik and Bob Bryan (Mike's twin brother).

    Nostalgia and Fun Lures Fans to Seniors

  • Serena and Sampras may grab the headlines, but they're not necessarily the only fan favorites at the US Open on the final week of play. On the side courts of the USTA National Tennis Center, legends of the game attract loyal followers who remember them from their glory days.

    Mirnyi and Bhupathi Win Doubles Championships

  • Max Mirnyi and Mahesh Bhupathi continued their run in the US Open Men's Doubles tournament on Friday by winning the finals against Jiri Jovak and Radek Stepanek. Mirnyi, otherwise known as "The Beast" and the equally intimidating Bhupathi took the Czech duo in three sets, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4.
     
    And Then There Were None

  • Saturday's junior semifinals will bring to the court some great head-to-head competition, but no Americans will be among the final four. The remaining two U.S. junior players ended their runs Friday in disappointing losses.

     Elite Eight Set to Clash in Semis Back to the Future Steady Schalken in Semifinals Women's Final Four-Cast US Open Debuts in Rockefeller Center USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi Two American Beauties Remain

    Elite Eight Set to Clash in Semis

  • With Venus, Serena, Lindsay, and Amelie set to square off in the women's semis, it was up to the men to give us the final pairings for what is shaping up to be a wild weekend of tennis. The legend grew on Thursday night as Pete Sampras defeated Andy Roddick in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Pistol Pete looked like a 13-time Grand Slam Champion, as his crisp play and dominating serve never allowed the fiery youngster an opportunity to get back in the match after the first set. Sampras now goes on to face Sjeng Schalken who defeated Fernando Gonzalez earlier in the day.

     Back to the Future
  • It was time to stop the talk. End the hype. Quit showing promotional videos. After almost 48 hours of anticipation, Pete Sampras and Andy Roddick stepped inside Arthur Ashe Stadium to have it out for the last remaining semifinal spot.
     
  •  Steady Schalken in Semifinals
  • Sjeng Schalken was fit to be tied -- until the fifth set, that is. Schalken outlasted Fernando Gonzalez, 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-3, 6-7 (5), 7-6 (2), Thursday and became the first player from the Netherlands to reach the US Open semifinals since Tom Okker in 1971. "Three tiebreaks," Schalken said. "You have to win one, of course."
  •  
  • Mirnyi and Bhupathi Move to Semis
  • Belarus' Max Mirnyi may have played a grueling four-set match Wednesday night against Andre Agassi, but he showed little sign of exhaustion the next day in the quarterfinals of the men's doubles tournament. Playing with Indian Mahesh Bhupathi, the duo defeated defending US Open men's doubles champions, Zimbabwe's Wayne Black and Kevin Ullyett, 7-6 (4), 5-7, 7-6 (4).
  •  
  •  Women's Final Four-Cast
  • Tennis expert Matt Cronin reviews Friday's women's semifinal matches between Serena Williams and Lindsay Davenport and Venus Williams and Amelie Mauresmo.
  •  
  • US Open Debuts in Rockefeller Center

  • For the first time the USTA will bring free coverage of the US Open to the streets of New York through live feeds of USA Network's and CBS Sports' broadcasts of the US Open on a giant video screen in New York City's Rockefeller Center through the US Open finals this weekend.

  • USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

  • Ask Andy Roddick how many steps Pete Sampras has lost. Ask Andy Roddick if Pete Sampras still has what it takes to win a Grand Slam title. Thrilling the energetic, New York City crowd, Pistol Pete came out firing on Thursday night and took it to Roddick in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4.
  •  
    Two American Beauties Remain

  • In mass numbers American junior girls marched onto the tennis grounds of the 2002 US Open, garnering 21 of the 64 entries. Although the US Open marks the junior American girls' best showing in a Grand Slam tournament all year, only two will continue into the quarterfinals.

     Stars Struggle to Reach Semis Amelie Puts Cap on Jenny's US Open Hingis/Kournikova Fall to Second Seeds Bryan Twins Topple Top Seeds USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi Junior Tennis Rages on Day Two

    Stars Struggle to Reach Semis

  • Lleyton Hewitt advanced to the semifinals, defeating Younes El Aynaoui in four sets. He now faces the winner of tonight's Andre Agassi-Max Mirnyi match. Earlier, Amelie Mauresmo joined Lindsay Davenport and Serena Williams in the semis with a stunning victory over Jennifer Capriati. Amelie will go on to face Venus Williams, who defeated Monica Seles in straight sets.

    Hewitt Hurdles Over 6'4" El Aynaoui
  • No. 20 seed Younes El Aynaoui proved to be a challenge for the No. 1 Aussie powerhouse, Lleyton Hewitt. In a four set, two-hour, 40-minute quarterfinal match, Hewitt prevailed, winning, 6-1, 7-6, 4-6, 6-2. This was the rockin' Moroccan's best US Open performance of his career.

     Navratilova's Doubles Campaign Ends with Loss
  • Tennis legend Martina Navratilova's bid to add yet another Grand Slam title to the 56 she already owns ended Wednesday against the sixth-seeded team of Elena Dementieva and Janette Husarova in the third round of women's doubles.

     Amelie Puts Cap on Jenny's US Open
  • The last time Jennifer Capriati and Amelie Mauresmo played at the US Open was after a seven-hour rain delay on Monday night. Both players fought off muscle stiffness in a chilly atmosphere in order to advance to the quarterfinals. Wednesday's quarterfinal match saw the players match up in a drastically different atmosphere. Temperatures soared above 85 degrees on a sun-baked Arthur Ashe Stadium, as the No. 10 and No. 3 traded strokes for close to two and a half hours.

     Hingis/Kournikova Fall to Second Seeds

  • With well-coordinated teamwork and superb poaching, No. 2 seeded doubles team Virginia Ruano Pascual and Paola Suarez continued their march toward the finals, defeating 5th seeded Martina Hingis and Anna Kournikova in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3.

    Bryan Twins Topple Top Seeds

  • Americans Bob and Mike Bryan scored one of the biggest wins of their doubles career with a 6-3, 7-6 (5) win over top seeds Mark Knowles and Daniel Nestor Wednesday to move into the semifinals.

    USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi


  • Too bad nobody checked with Amelie Mauresmo before sending out the invitations for an all-American semifinal party at the 2002 US Open. Just as she had two times earlier this summer, Mauresmo took it to Jennifer Capriati in their quarterfinal match Wednesday afternoon.
     
    Junior Tennis Rages on Day Two

  • Americans Brian Baker, Robert Kim and Ally Baker continued their quest for US Open junior titles, as many seeded players worked their way through the draw.

     US Women Control Arthur Ashe Stadium Dynamic Duo Charges Ahead Schalken Goes Gaga Defeating Guga Queen of Soul to Sing at Women's Final USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

    US Women Control Arthur Ashe Stadium

  • In the most dramatic women's match of the tournament so far, two-time defending champion Venus Williams fought off her own nerves and a spirited Chanda Rubin to win, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5, to gain the quarterfinals on Tuesday. Americans Lindsay Davenport and Monica Seles also stormed ahead, with Seles taking down 1997 champ Martina Hingis, 6-4, 6-2, in the fourth round and Davenport overcoming rangy Russian Elena Bovina, 3-6, 6-0, 6-2, in the quarters. With Davenport and Serena already having gained semifinal berths and Venus and Seles slated to meet up in the quarterfinals, it's up to Jennifer Capriati, who faces Amelie Mauresmo to make it an all-American final four.

     Serena Makes Sure it's Hantuch-over
  • What else did you expect? Another would-be contender sent packing in under an hour. Serena Williams defeated 11th seeded Daniela Hantuchova in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2.

     For Venus, it's Goodbye Ruby Tuesday
  • Under a bright blue sky with only a single cloud in sight, No. 2 seed Venus Williams narrowly defeated 14th seed Chanda Rubin in the round of 16. Although Rubin put up a spirited fight, she could not go the distance, falling to the No. 2 world champion in 3 sets, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.

     Dynamic Duo Charges Ahead
  • Four top players met today in the third round of the women's doubles tournament of the US Open. The dynamic duo comprised of Martina Hingis and Anna Kournikova were matched against American favorite Chanda Rubin and four-time US Open doubles champ Natasha Zvereva. Naturally, nearly every seat in Louis Armstrong Stadium was packed. Whether fans came to watch notable tennis or to catch a glimpse of Kournikova has yet to be determined.

     Schalken Goes Gaga Defeating Guga

  • The Brazilian fans were out in full force to support their icon Gustavo Kuerten today. In between games they chanted for Guga and relished in his winners as well as his mistakes. However, the fans were not enough to carry Kuerten into the quarterfinals, where game after game he made a valiant effort to win a set against No. 24 Sjeng Schalken before falling 6-3, 7-6 (6), 6-7 (5), 7-6 (4).

    Queen of Soul to Sing at Women's Final


  • Aretha Franklin, the "Queen of Soul," will sing "America" ("My Country 'Tis of Thee") prior to the prime time 2002 US Open Women's singles final, Saturday, September 7th. Franklin will be accompanied by 40 members of New York's Boys' Choir of Harlem.

    USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi


  • When most people look at Monica Seles, they are overtaken with two emotions: sympathy and respect. Respect for her legacy that includes nine Grand Slam titles. Sympathy for an athlete senselessly cut down in her prime. Whichever of the two is the motivating factor, there is no doubt that the fans roaming the grounds of the USTA National Tennis Center are hoping to see Seles win one more Grand Slam title here in Flushing Meadows.

     Stars & Stripes on Arthur Ashe Stadium Navratilova Still has Game at 45 Hantuchova Hangs In Haas Edges Out Enqvist USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

    Stars & Stripes on Arthur Ashe Stadium It was a big night for the Red, White, and Blue on Monday. Five out of the six players on Arthur Ashe Stadium, including Lindsay Davenport, Jennifer Capriati, Amy Frazier, Andre Agassi, and Jan-Michael Gambill, were homegrown talents, and they did their nation proud on Labor Day. Advancing into the women's Quarterfinals in straight sets were Davenport and Capriati, while Agassi was equally flawless, blazing into the fourth round for the 12th time in his career. Meanwhile, over on Louis Armstrong Stadium, four-time US Open champ Pete Sampras was forced to go deep in his five-set win over England's Greg Rusedski. Pete's 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-4 victory brought the crowd to life and reaffirmed hopes that Sampras might be ready for another run to a Grand Slam title.

    Davenport Takes Farina Elia By Storm

  • After waiting through nearly two days of incessant rain, wind and chilly temperatures, Lindsay Davenport took the court at Arthur Ashe stadium where she defeated No. 13 seed Silvia Farina Elia, 6-3, 6-1.

    J Cap Has Too Much Game for Frazier
  • A calm and cool Jennifer Capriati coasted easily through her straight set win, losing just four games to the 12-year WTA Tour veteran Amy Frazier. Capriati will face France's Amelie Mauresmo in the quarters.

     Navratilova Still has Game at 45

  • What do you do for an encore when you're 45, own 56 Grand Slam titles and still punch volleys with the accuracy of a Lennox Lewis jab? If you're tennis legend-in-residence Martina Navratilova, you lace up your shoes for the umteempth time and show the young girls how it's done. The last two days at the US Open, Navratilova has done just that.

     Hantuchova Hangs In

  • In the end, Daniela Hantuchova just wanted it more. Still recovering from a thumb and ankle sprain sustained as play was delayed, and then suspended due to rain yesterday, Hantuchova came back to the courts tonight to eke out a victory against Belgium's Justine Henin, 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (7-4).

    Time stood still on Monday evening at Louis Armstrong Stadium as four-time US Open champion Pete Sampras defeated fire-balling lefty Greg Rusedski in five exhilarating sets, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-4.

     Here Comes the Rain Again Andy Roddick: American Idol Junior Tournament Showcases Talent Tip of the Day: The Swing Volley Rubin Continues Hot Summer USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi
     
    Here Comes the Rain Again Hurricane Serena Blows Past Bedanova

  • Not even a dreary, wet September day could slow down Serena Williams, as the 1999 US Open champion stormed past Daja Bedanova in straight sets. Following a more-than-six hour rain delay, Williams and Bedanova finally took to the court inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, and it didn't appear that the long delay affected Serena in the least. Williams came out on fire, taking only 18 minutes to finish off Bedanova 6-1 in the one-sided first set.



    Weather Can't Dampen Spirits: Fans Wait Out the Rain
  • Tennis fans are a loyal bunch. The grounds at the USTA National Tennis Center were blanketed by an ashen cloud covering, and the rain was steadily sprinkling down, like that late night mosquito you just can't shoo away. Yet despite conditions that we typically associate more with Wimbledon than a Labor Day picnic, the tennis fans held their ground, confident that they would get to see the stars come out.

     Andy Roddick: American Idol

  • The American tennis-loving public is officially in love with Andy Roddick. If you don't believe me, ask one of the thousands of fans who packed a snug Louis Armstrong Stadium late Saturday afternoon to watch his match with Raemon Sluiter. Or, ask one of the hundreds who were waiting in line, hoping others would leave for some reason so they could get inside to watch even a little bit of the match.

     Junior Tournament Showcases Talent

  • Rising stars of junior tennis have become sleeper hits in the men's and women's draws at this year's US Open. They have performed well and surprised tennis fans with their mastery of skills, their poise and maturity. They will take that advantage with them this week as they get back to the real world of amateur tennis and compete against their peers. 


  • Not even hours of uncooperative weather could stop Hurricane Serena from blowing through her most recent opponent. After more than a six-hour rain delay, the 1999 US Open Champion came out storming.

     Oh Yes, it's Ladies' Night Lleyton KOs Blake in Five-Set Thriller USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi Seles Sticks Around Rubin Continues Hot Summer Agassi Romps to Gain Sweet 16

    Oh Yes, it's Ladies' Night On a blustery Saturday that had all the foreboding mixings of an upset special, the highly seeded group of Venus Williams, Monica Seles, Kim Clijsters, Amelie Mauresmo, and Chanda Rubin all stormed ahead, creating a number of intriguing fourth-round match-ups.

    Two-time defending champion Venus crunched Martina Muller, 6-1, 6-2, in 41 minutes, but Williams' compatriot, Monica Seles, had to pull out all the stops to defeat qualifier Yoon-Jeong Cho, 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.

    No. 2 Williams will face No. 14 Chanda Rubin, who took out No. 21 Lisa Raymond, 7-6 (2), 6-4.

    No. 7 Kim Clijsters was pushed to the wall but leapt over 17-year-old Russian phenom Vera Zvonareva in a 1-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory. Clijsters will face Montreal champ Amelie Mauresmo, who smothered Swiss Patty Schnyder, 6-1, 6-4.

    After Hours Girl Power

  • For the first time since 1975 (when night sessions were added to the US Open) the ladies headlined Center Court without their male counterparts. Martina Hingis and Jennifer Capriati got the party started with straight-set wins over Amanda Coetzer and Meghann Shaughnessy, respectively. For the nightcap, Hingis made a curtain call, teaming with Anna Kournikova to face the American tandem of Laura Granville and Jennifer Hopkins.

     
  • Anticipation was running high on Saturday. In the second round of the 2001 Open, Australian Lleyton Hewitt was pushed to five sets by James Blake, a virtual unknown. A lot has changed since then: Hewitt has won two Grand Slam titles and Blake has cracked the Top 30, earned a spot on the US Davis Cup Team, and won his first ATP Tour event this summer. USOpen.org examines the result in the Post-Match Analysis.

     USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

  • Although their match did not start on Saturday, Greg Rusedski and Paradorn Srichaphan finished up their memorable five-set affair one minute after midnight. They are today's USOpen.org Diet Pepsi Players of the Day for giving us a great finish to Friday and for setting the tone for the middle Saturday at the US Open.

    Seles Sticks Around

  • As a 15-year-old unranked wild card, Monica Seles won her first professional title at Houston in 1989, defeating No. 4 Chris Evert in the final. She went on to win nine Grand Slam titles, 53 career singles titles and was ultimately ranked No. 1 in the world. Seles extended her 12th appearance at the US Open Saturday, defeating Yoon-Jeong Cho of Korea, 6-1, 5-7, 6-3.

    Rubin Continues Hot Summer

  • With gray skies and chilly winds foretelling of fall, Chanda Rubin showed off her hot game on Louis Armstrong Stadium on Saturday, defeating fellow American Lisa Raymond to grab a spot in the fourth round of the women's singles draw.

    Agassi Romps to Gain Sweet 16

  • Andre Agassi continued his blitzkrieg through the early rounds of the US Open with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-2 thrashing of Paraguay's Ramon Delgado, which took just 89 minutes.

     Everybody's Workin' for the Weekend Guga Shows Safin the Door Forecasting Saturday's Shootouts USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi Nick's Picks Unlikely Trio Battle on Show Courts

    Everybody's Workin' for the Weekend Three-time Roland Garros champion Gustavo Kuerten quickly established himself as a threat to win his first U.S. Open crown when he toppled No. 2 seed and 2000 U.S. Open champion Marat Safin 6-4, 6-4, 7-5 in the second round on Friday.

    No. 4 Lindsay Davenport also moved ahead, as did No. 3 Tommy Haas, No. 5 Tim Henman, No. 8 Justine Henin, No. 11 Andy Roddick, No. 26 Juan Ignacio Chela and big-hitting Russian Elena Bovina.

    But No. 10 Sebastien Grosjean of France was taken out of the tournament by his Davis Cup teammate, Arnaud Clement, in a stirring five sets on the Grandstand.

    Blake-Hewitt Rematch Should Be a Dogfight

  • It was the most harrowing part of his remarkable run to the 2001 US Open title, so when No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt was asked whether he was relishing facing the crowd and James Blake again when he takes the court against the young American in the third round on Saturday, the Adelaide street fighter was characteristically nonplused.

    Guga Shows Safin the Door
  • Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten unloaded on 2001 US Open champ Marat Safin, bouncing him out of Queens in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 7-5. Despite three Grand Slam titles under his belt, Guga came to Flushing unseeded after spending much of the summer recovering from hip surgery. Check out USOpen.org's Post-Match Analysis to see what were the keys to Guga's advancing to the third round.

    USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi

  • Bea Bielik arrived in New York as a 1,102nd-ranked wild card. The reigning NCAA champ quickly proved that she might be the best college player since Lisa Raymond by reaching the third round of the Open, including a 6-4, 6-2 victory over No. 27 seed Tamarine Tanasugarno. But she had a tough task Friday: a third-round clash with No. 8 Justine Henin.


    Unlikely Trio Battle on Show Courts

  • Not every player comes to the US Open with the panache of Andre Agassi or the flair of Serena Williams. For many, the road to The Big Apple is paved with Qualies, Satellites, and Challenger events all over the globe. For three players, a week of living dangerously turned out to be a week to remember.

     Weather Doesn't Rain on US Parade Capriati Well Worth the Wait USOpen.org Player of the Day presented by Diet Pepsi Call it Like You See it Americans Triumph; Blake Meets Hewitt USOpen.org Previews Day Three Shaughnessy Wins Spot Against Capriati
     
    Weather Doesn't Rain on US Parade On a wet and wild rain-delayed Thursday at the 2002 US Open, a trio of top American women advanced to the third round, two US Open men's champions moved on to see another day and a host of top-seeds tromped through the soggy weather at the USTA National Tennis Center. No. 3 Jennifer Capriati and No. 4 Lindsay Davenport sped through their second round matches on Arthur Ashe Stadium. Davenport completed her rain-delayed match from Wednesday evening, needing less than 15 minutes to send Petra Mandula to the locker room, 6-4, 6-2. Playing on Louis Armstrong Stadium, defending champion Lleyton Hewitt defeated Noam Okun of Israel, after a close first set tie-breaker, 7-6, 6-4, 6-1. Hewitt's third round match will be against American James Blake, who took four sets to defeat Nikloay Davydenko at the nearby Grandstand. Hewitt and Blake played a memorable five set affair in 2001. Two-time US Open champion Andre Agassi, the No. 6 seed, needed just 66 minutes to defeat compatriot Justin Gimelstob, 6-0, 6-1, 6-1. In other action around the grounds of the National Tennis Center, Monica Seles, Kim Clijsters, Jiri Novak, Martina Hingis, and Amelie Mauresmo all advanced.

    Seeds Advance on Day One of US Open Perfect playing conditions on Monday saw the seeds taking advantage of their opponents and the first day of action at the 2002 US Open provided very little in the way of upsets.

  • In the night session, fans were treated to an unforgettable opening ceremony, featuring appearances by John Mcenroe, Billie Jean King, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and performances by Judd Hirsch, Tony Bennett, and Queen Latifah. Following were displays of precision tennis from two of the world's best, in Serena Williams and Andre Agassi. Both former champions advanced in straight sets over Corina Morariu and Robby Ginepri, respectively.


  • Less fireworks and fanfare will likely surround the first round match of New Jersey's Eric Taino, who fought through three rounds of matches just to make the main draw. USOpen.org's Lucas Swineford profiles Taino whose large entourage of family and friends are sure to give him a homecrowd advantage.

    BILLIE JEAN KING AND JOHN McENROE TO LEAD US OPEN
    FLAG PROCESSION IN AUGUST 26 OPENING NIGHT CEREMONY

    Tennis Legends To Represent Sport in US Open “Salute to Heroes”
    With New York Police Academy Cadets, NYPD, NYFD, PAPD, and U.S. Marines

    FLUSHING, N.Y., August 23, 2002 – The USTA today announced that Billie Jean King and John McEnroe, two of tennis’ most popular and engaging champions, will lead a procession of flags on-court during the US Open’s “A Salute to Heroes” Opening Night Ceremony at the 2002 US Open Monday, August 26 at 7:00 p.m.

    Over 60 flags will represent each of the countries of the players competing in the US Open. The US Open’s “A Salute to Heroes,” will honor the City’s uniformed and civilian heroes of the past year who helped the City through its greatest challenge ever. The USTA will raise over Arthur Ashe Stadium the Ground Zero “Heroes” Flag – the flag recovered from Manhattan’s World Financial Center and subsequently raised by U.S. Marines last fall upon capturing Kandahar Airport in Afghanistan. King and McEnroe will join fellow New Yorkers Tony Bennett, Queen Latifah and Judd Hirsch in the on-court tribute that begins the 2002 US Open’s first evening session at 7:00 p.m. In addition, throughout the two weeks of the US Open, the USTA will honor New York’s heroes through a series of nightly tributes between matches.

    Honor guards from the New York Police Department, New York Fire Department, Port Authority Police Department and the U.S. Marine Corps will participate in the ceremony, as will the New York Police Academy cadets, carrying the U.S. colors.

    One of the US Open’s most illustrious and notable champions, King captured four singles, five doubles and four mixed doubles titles when the Grand Slam tournament was held in Forest Hills. The daughter of a firefighter in Long Beach, Calif., King pioneered the first successful women’s professional tennis tour, World TeamTennis, and remains active as captain of the U.S. Fed Cup team.

    Queens native John McEnroe used his shot-making artistry to become a four-time singles champion and five-time doubles champion at the US Open. McEnroe was a mainstay in Davis Cup, holding 22 U.S. Davis Cup records while helping the U.S. to five Davis Cup titles. McEnroe, who lives in Manhattan, remains closely involved in tennis, competing in senior tennis events – including a September 7 Challenge Match at the US Open against Boris Becker – and as a popular color commentator for CBS and USA Network.

    Serena, Hewitt get No. 1 seedings for U.S. Open

    NEW YORK -- Four Americans top the women's seedings at the U.S. Open for the first time since 1983, led by Serena Williams, who'll be aiming for her third straight Grand Slam title.

    Williams' sister, two-time defending champion Venus Williams, is seeded No. 2, meaning they could meet only in the final. They have played for three of the past four major championships.

    Jennifer Capriati is seeded third, and Lindsay Davenport is No. 4 for the year's final Grand Slam event, which opens Monday.

    Nineteen years ago, Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert Lloyd, Andrea Jaeger, Tracy Austin and Pam Shriver were seeded 1-5.

    Defending champion Lleyton Hewitt was seeded No. 1 in the men's field Tuesday, with 2000 winner Marat Safin at No. 2. Tommy Haas is seeded third, followed by Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Tim Henman, and two-time champion Andre Agassi.

    Pete Sampras is seeded No. 17. He's a four-time U.S. Open champion and the runner-up the past two years, but he hasn't won a tournament since Wimbledon in 2000.

     The USTA today announced plans for a special Opening Night Ceremony to celebrate the spirit of New York and the
    start of the 2002 US Open, Monday evening, August 26 at 7:00 p.m. The US
    Open's "A Salute to Heroes," will honor the City's uniformed and civilian
    heroes of the past year who helped the City through its greatest challenge
    ever. The USTA will raise over Arthur Ashe Stadium the Ground Zero "Heroes"
    Flag - the flag recovered from Manhattan's World Financial Center and
    subsequently raised by U.S. Marines last fall upon capturing Kandahar
    Airport in Afghanistan. New Yorkers Tony Bennett, Queen Latifah and Judd
    Hirsch will lead the on-court tribute that begins the 2002 US Open's first
    evening session at 7:00 p.m. In addition, throughout the two weeks of the
    US Open, the USTA will honor New York's heroes through a series of nightly
    tributes between matches.

    Honor guards from the New York Police Department, New York Fire Department,
    Port Authority Police Department and the U.S. Marine Corps will participate
    in the ceremony as will the New York Police Academy cadets, carrying the
    U.S. colors as well as flags representing the 60 homelands of US Open
    competitors. The Merchant Marine Academy Band from Kings Point will perform
    leading up to the presentation of the "Heroes" Flag.

    The "Heroes" Flag flew over Two World Financial Center in lower Manhattan
    and was rescued by NYPD Officer and former U.S. Marine Peter J. Conlin as it
    hung from a single remaining grommet atop the building. When brought to the
    ground, the flag, still completely intact, was signed by hundreds of friends
    and family of the victims, survivors and rescue workers gathered at Ground
    Zero. The Flag, featuring personal messages, poetry and prayers became a
    symbol of unity for those at Ground Zero. The Flag subsequently was taken
    by the United States Marine Corps to Afghanistan. When the United States
    captured Kandahar Airport, the "Heroes" Flag was raised over the airport.

    On Opening Night, the "Heroes" Flag will be raised atop Arthur Ashe Stadium
    and incorporated into the pre-match ceremony for the US Open Women's Singles
    Final on Saturday, September 7, and will be lowered following the conclusion
    of the September 8 Men's Singles Final, three days prior to the first
    anniversary of the attacks on America.

    "This is a very special year for New York and the US Open," said Arlen
    Kantarian, Chief Executive, Professional Tennis, USTA. "This special
    Opening Night ceremony will welcome the world to a confident and resilient
    New York and provides the opportunity to honor and celebrate the courage and
    heroism of New York and its people."

    Bennett, who will sing "America the Beautiful," richly deserves the status
    of "living legend" for a 50-plus year career as a musical performer with 10
    Grammy Awards, an Emmy Award and over 50 million records sold worldwide.
    Born in Astoria, Queens, he got his big break performing with Pearl Bailey
    and was then discovered by Bob Hope who took the young singer on the road.
    An avid tennis fan, Bennett is a regular attendee at the US Open matches
    each year.

    Born in Newark, New Jersey, Queen Latifah - who will sing the National
    Anthem - is a Grammy Award winning artist, regarded as one of the most
    influential female artists in recording history. She also has received
    critical acclaim as an actress in films such as "Get it Off" and "Living Out
    Loud." She will appear in three up-coming movies, "Bringing Down the House"
    with Steve Martin, in which she is also serving as executive producer;
    "Brown Sugar" with Taye Diggs; and "Chicago" with Richard Gere, Catherine
    Zeta-Jones and Renee Zellwegger.

    Hirsch, who will narrate the story of the "Heroes" Flag is best known for
    his role on the hit television show "Taxi." Nominated for Best Supporting
    Actor in "Ordinary People" in 1980, Hirsch has acted on Broadway since 1966.
    He most recently appeared in the film, "A Beautiful Mind." Currently,
    Hirsch is on Broadway in the revival of his Tony-award winning performance
    in "I'm Not Rappaport."
