The field at the U.S.Open at Flushing Meadow continues to shrink Friday as second and third round action comes at you all day from the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
Andy Roddick, who announced Thursday he plans retire after the completion of his run at the U.S. Open, will play during Friday's night session in a second round meeting with Austria's Bernard Tomic, ranked No. 53 in the world. Roddick is still the last American male to win a major tennis championship, claiming his only Grand Slam crown at this same Arthur Ashe stadium nine years ago.
Defending U.S. Open champions Novak Djokovic and Samantha Stosur are also in action Friday. Djokovic looks to repeat and regain some of the momentum from 2011 that he has lost. Djokovic takes on Brazil's Rogerio Dutra Silva, ranked 112th in the world.
