Former UK Tennis Star Moves to Round 3 of US Open


So how about some UK Tennis on the blog? Well former UK tennis star Jesse Witten is making moves at the US Open. After coming through the qualifying tournament, Witten drew the #26 seed in the first round and pulled the upset, advancing to Round 2 today. In today’s match, he drew Maximo Gonzalez (I wish I were named Maximo), and again pulled the upset, advancing to Round 3. The next round will likely see Witten play Njovak Djokovic, only the #4 ranked player in the world. But Witten has the power of the Big Blue Nation, so give him a big shout out (he is a blog reader I hear) and lets pull him through for the HUGE upset on Saturday.
