U.S Open Results- Day 1


What's better than waking up on a burning hot August morning, knowing that the 1st day of what is arguably the most exhilirating slam will begin in just a few hours. I knew the feeling this morning, when I had the goosebumps waiting to see Kim Clijsters kick off the action on Arthur Ashe. Clijsters cruised to victory, as did Victoria Azarenka, Serena Williams, Vera Zvonareva and Flavia Pennetta. Mr. Federer opened his campaign for a 6th straight Open title with a smooth victory over Devin Britton, who hit more winners than the Swiss. Nikolay Davydenko, Robin Soderling and James Blake all kicked off their '09 Opens with victories as well. Andy Roddick is the 2nd night match on, following Venus Williams, who is down a set to Vera Dushevina.
