    Andy kicks off his US Open campaign with a Rnd 1 match against Indian player Somdev.
    Surprisingly they've not met before on that ATP Tour or in Futures or Challengers so the H2H is 0-0.
    http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/Head-To-Head.aspx?pId=MC10&oId=D616

    Somdev is aged 26, 5'11 and 25kgs lighter than Mr Muscle Murray!!!
    Although he's 2 yrs older than Muzzah he turned pro 3yrs later and has only recently seen his ranking rise to a career high #62 (#64 this week). The main reason for the delay in hitting the grind of the tour was a 3yr degree in Sociology from the University of Virginia, and he turned 'pro' after graduating in 2008. He now resides in the USA whilst still representing his country for Davis Cup and he won the singles Gold Medal for India at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

    This could be quite a good first round match up for Andy to 'find his feet' at Flushing Meadows. As ever it's wise to have a large sofa on stand-by.
    Very Happy

    We'll update with the match day and time when the OOP is released.

    Somdev was a superb college player and he is having a career best year.

    Don't like the idea of Andy playing Stan in R4, but then again Stan hasn't been playing very well recently so he might not get there. Nervous about Sod/Delpo too but would rather them than Berdych/Tsonga right now.

    Just hope Andy will play his best tennis at the USO this year. Fingers crossed for a successful couple of weeks Smile

    Not worried about Stan at all, he's been rubbish recently.

    I have not heard which half is playing first yet. However with the US Open the first round is over 3 days, so even if Andy's half plays first we won't know which day he is playing yet. I guess the oop will be out on Sunday.

    I think the first round matches are bound to be delayed with the threat of 'Irene' looming. Whatever the weather when they get to play I really hope Andy will find his 'A' game - it won't be easy against Devvarman - he was a very good college player.

    I suppose a lot will depend on the after effects of Hurricane Irene and how much mopping there is to be done.

    Can anyone remember if it is the defending Champion's half that goes first at the USO?
