robbyginepri Gonzalez Falls, Young Takes on GasquetIn addition to the big news of Rafael Nadal’s injury, the big news out of yesterday’s play was the number 7 Fernando Gonzalez of Chile lost in five sets yesterday, becoming the highest-seeded player to crash out of the tournament and potentially clearing a path for American Robby Ginepri to move into the third round.

Also last night, boy-giant John Isner won in straight sets, setting up a tantalizing third round match-up with Roger Federer to be played this weekend.
John McEnroe said of Isner: “This guy’s gonna be a headache for Federer.”

Match of the Day today: Impressive American prospect Donald Young takes on the super-talented and super-emotional Richard Gasquet at Louis Armstrong a little after noon.
