sa watch: us open 2010

September 11, 2010

Brazilian doubleist Andre Sa didn’t advance too far in this year’s men’s doubles draw at the 2010 US Open. He and partner Stephen Huss lost 3 and 3 against the team of Rajeev Ram and Bobby Reynolds.

Taking the cake: The winners of course, were the Bryan Brothers who shut down the dream run of Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi 7-6 (5) 7-6 (4). Mazel to them.

In the latest installment of TSF’s Sa Watch, we drop in on our favorite (active) Brazilian tennis player, who’s doubles partners with Marcelo Melo, as he works on pre-2009 U.S. Open kinks at the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament in New Haven, Conn.

Sa and Melo took care of Brits Stephen Huss and Ross Hutchins 7-5, 6-3 in the first round. They’ll next face the third-seeded team of Czech Frantisek Cermak and Slovak Michal Mertinak, who beat Wesley Moodie/Horia Tecau 7-6 (4), 4-6, 10-7.

Cute headband, no?

Doubles partners Marcelo Melo and Andre Sa are vying for their first title in 2009 as the eighth seeds at the Australian Open. They’re off to a good start, taking out the local team of Brydan Klein and Matthew Ebden 6-2, 7-6 (5) in the first round.

Behind their backs are three titles from their successful 2008: Costa do Sauipe, Portschach, and New Haven immediately before the U.S. Open (where they reached the third round). The duo also made the semis in Memphis and Metz; and the quarters of Vegas, Stockholm, and the Paris Masters.
