03:39 - So that wraps up the men's action on day seven to bring the first week to a close. But we will be back with all the action on day eight from 4pm (UK time) tomorrow - just about 12 hours time - so joins us again then
6-4 - WINNER! This time though the Russian only needs the one as he fires an inside out forehand approach shot into the corner that Isner cannot return and the seals the win for the 12th seed
40-0 - Youzhny has just too much pace on his ground-strokes as Isner slaps a forehand into the net and it hands the Russian another three match points ...
5-4 - Isner saves it with a forehand volley winner off a reactionary return from Youzhny and the American goes on to hold when the Russian's forehand return of serve drops long of the baseline. Youzhny will serve for it. Will he get tight? We'll know after the change of ends
40-30 - Isner's volleying, once again, not quite up to scratch and Youzhny whips a forehand passing shot down the line (after running around the ball) to earn himself a first match point ...
5-3 - Youzhny holds to 15, with just the one lapse in concentration on a poor drop shot. But that game takes him to within one of the US Open fourth round. Unless, of course, Isner can come up with another sterling comeback. He will serve to stay in the match next
4-3 - Isner looks to be cruising through a service hold before a forehand long, a forehand across court into the net and a forehand down the line into the net hands Youzhny another break point. The American serves it with an ace before another ace, this time down the centre of the court, seals him another hold to just about keep him in this match
4-2 - Youzhny is forced to save another break back point, which he does with a huge second serve that Isner can only return into the net. And the Russian goes on to hold once again with a brilliant reactionary backhand sliced winner down the line despite Isner's return of serve coming back over the net at such speed that the ball was basically behind Youzhny when he hit it
3-2 - A much better forehand volley winner from Isner which he buries in the open court gets him out of a spot of bother at 15-30 down. But a forehand slapped into the net from the baseline and another forehand volley into the net hands Youzhny another break point. Isner saves it with an ace before going on to hold with another ace - his 29th of the match
3-1 - Isner riffles a forehand return of serve low back over the net which Youzhny can only hit into the net and it brings up a break back point for Isner. Youzhny saves it with a second serve ace down the centre of the court but a sloppy forehand into the net from the Russian hands Isner a second chance. Youzhny saves it again with a forehand passing shot winner down the line. And Youzhny goes on to hold at the second attempt when Isner sends a forehand long
2-1 - BREAK! Isner doesn't get enough on his approach shot and Youzhny dismissively thwacks a backhand passing shot winner across court to bring up a break point. Isner saves it with a second serve ace out wide but a forehand back behind Youzhny drifts long and the Russian has a second chance. And this time he gets it with a low backhand up the line that Isner can only volley low into the net off the forehand wing
1-1 - A sloppy start to the game from Youzhny as he goes 0-30 down. But he recovers to hold and level up with a forehand winner
0-1 - Isner comes through a tricky service hold, coming up with two huge aces to get himself out of trouble at 15-30 down before an unreturnable seals the game to 30 for him
7-6 - SET! And there is the third set for the Russian as he produces an outstanding ace out wide to take a two sets to one lead
TB6-5 - A big first serve comes to Isner's rescue as Youzhny hits long, not off the return but off his second shot in the rally. But the second set point will be on the Russian's serve
TB6-4 - The crowd sense the importance of the situation when Youzhny holds another point to go 5-4 up. But it doesn't really help as Isner slaps a forehand into the net to hand Youzhny two set points ...
TB3-3 - Isner comes in across court and just gets lucky when Youzhny sends his cross court forehand passing shot just wide into the tramlines. But Isner slaps a poor forehand long of the baseline on the next point to undo all his good work and level the scores level at 3-3 at the change of ends
6-6 - Sure enough a tie-break will decide this third set as Isner cruises through another hold to 15, sealing it with an overhead that Youzhny can only return into the net
6-5 - Youzhny looks to be cruising towards a service hold to 15 before Isner fires a forehand return of serve across court on the angle for a brilliant winner. And the American goes on to level up at deuce. But Youzhny does recover in time to hold, without facing a break point
5-5 - Isner makes light work of the service hold to stay in this set, racing through it to 15 to level up once again. Tie-break anyone?
5-4 - Isner will have to serve to stay in the set after the change of ends as Youzhny holds once again to 15, with a great first serve and forehand winner combo
4-4 - Isner posts another hold to 15, sealing it with an ace. It's such an advantage having that serve to fall back on and we remain on level terms in this third set
4-3 - Youzhny has the advantage of serving first in this set as he holds once again to 15 to sneak out in front again. But the Russian is still struggling with some of his shots as he pulls the trigger on what should be a straightforward forehand off a shorter ball. But he fires it straight down into the net to hand Isner his only point of the game
3-3 - It's another tight set now as the players trade another comfortable service hold apeice, both sealing their game to 15
2-2 - Isner looks set for another comfortable service hold before a shocking forehand long and a Youzhny backhand winner drilled down the line help the Russian level up at deuce. But the American recovers in time and holds when Youzhny cannot return a low volley from Isner anywhere other than into the net
1-1 - But Isner continues to play better and better as he posts an equally speedy service hold of his own, battering down yet another ace before finding a cracking serve out wide that Youzhny can only return into the net off an over-stretched backhand
1-0 - Well, the body language is still pretty positive from Youzhny as he races through an opening service hold in this third set before bouncing back to the chair for the change of ends. He does have a reputation, rightly so, of psyching himself out of matches so it's important here for him that he sticks with Isner
6-7 - SET! Youzhny fires a forehand return of serve just wide down the line and that hands Isner the second set. The Russian thinks the ball might've just caught the line and challenges but Isner walks back to his chair confidently, he was right there. Sure enough hawkeye shows the ball was indeed wide and Isner has the second set. We're all square
TB7-8 - Youzhny saves the set point once again with a solid second serve that Isner can only return wide off the backhand wing. But Youzhny misses a relative routine forehand approach shot, firing long, and Isner will have a fifth set point. Back on his serve once again
TB6-7 - Ouch! Isner sends a shocking forehand volley just long of the baseline to squander the third. Youzhny was nowhere near that, he didn't need to go for such a shot. But he gets lucky and is handed a fourth chance when another poor volley bounces off the top of the tape and bounces just over, taking the time away from Youzhny who still very nearly gets to it
TB5-6 - The Russian saves the first with a backhand winner that wrong foots Isner on the baseline. And he also saves the second by working his way into the net and forcing Isner into attempting a defensive backhand lob which drops wide. The final set point will be on Isner's serve ...
TB3-6 - Two great volleys, one backhand and one forehand winner, get Isner the mini-break. And an ace and a backhand down the line wide from Youzhny hand Isner three set points ...
TB3-3 - Great hitting from both players as they take three points each to remain all square at the change of ends in the breaker. There is nothing at the moment to suggest which way this beaker is going to go
6-6 - It's tie-break time folks. Nice work from Youzhny as he stops the rot with a service hold to 15, sealing the game when Isner sends a backhand return of serve just long of the baseline
5-6 - Five games in a row now Isner as he holds with a much better backhand volley that he dinks just over the net. Two aces to open the game really get the crowd going and Isner is just feeding off that at the moment. Youzhny, having served for the set twice already, will have to serve to stay in this set after the change of ends
5-5 - BREAK! Great defense from Isner as Youzhny sends a forehand long of the baseline to allow the American to level up at 30-30. And this time the American gets right on top of the net with a backhand volley, putting it into the open court to earn himself a break back point. AND HE GETS IT. Youzhny fires a backhand approach shot into the net and the noise in the Arthur Ashe Stadium is huge as Isner tries to whip them up even further
5-4 - Isner posts another solid service hold, this time to 30, to force Youzhny to give it another go. The crowd are really starting to get into this now
5-3 - BREAK! Two big serves get Youzhny out of a 0-30 hole but a huge forehand overhead down the line from Isner sees him earn a chance to get one of the breaks back. And sure enough he does with a cracking backhand that he threads down the line for a passing shot winner. He's still one more break down though and will have to serve to stay in this set for a second time before he even gets a chance to get that back
5-2 - A love service game from Isner, his easiest of the match, gets the crowd going as he once again forces Youzhny to serve out the set. Last time around, Isner had his best opportunity to break at this stage, can he doe it again?
5-1 - So just over the hour mark and John Isner will have to serve to stay in this second set after Youzhny holds once again with another impressive serve that Isner can only return into the net
4-1 - BREAK! After another cracking return from Youzhny Isner sends a backhand volley into the net and the Russian has two more break points. The first is saved with an inside out forehand across court that smacks more than a little of anger. But another volley into the net, this time a forehand, from Isner again demonstrates the difference in these two players. Youzhny is beginning to run away with this now
3-1 - Better from Isner as he holds to 15 to get off the mark in this second set before Youzhny posts a service hold of his own to 15 when the American fires a low backhand volley into the net
2-0 - Youzhny holds to consolidate the break with another huge first serve that Isner can only dive towards and, whilst he gets his racquet to it, the ball goes further up in the air than it does forward and Youzhny holds
1-0 - BREAK! This looks like it is going to be a short night for the American as he started the first, surrendering his serve with another backhand into the net
6-4 - SET! A forehand goes astray from Youzhny and it hands Isner two break back points. The Russian saves the first with a huge first serve that Isner can only returen long. And he does likewise with the second when Isner's stretching return goes wide across court. Youzhny earns himself a set point with another huge serve before squandering it with a double fault. But he gets the second at the second attempt when Isner sends a forehand return into the net
5-4 - Isner holds to 15 to force Youzhny to serve out this set. For his one point of the game, Youzhny dragges Isner from one side of the court to the other before dinking a neat little backhand drop shot over the net
5-3 - Nice idea from Isner as he attempts to push Youzhny deep behind the baseline with some huge shots before drifting a shorter backhand over the net. But he just underneath the ball a little and Youzhny has another hold. Isner will have to serve to stay in this set
4-3 - Another decent hold from Isner, although he looks a little lethargic around court. But he pushes Youzhny low on the backhand side, forcing the error into the net from the Russian and that's another game under Isner's belt
4-2 - A comfortable hold for Youzhny this time around as Isner dumps a low forehand into the bottom of the net. Youzhny has clearly come out with a game plan to target the American's comparatively weak backhand and so far it's working as he draws another couple of errors from that wing
3-2 - The atmosphere is beginning to build now as more spectators make their way into the arena. And Isner is helping with that as well as he batters a couple more aces down at Youzhny to notch up his second game of the evening
3-1 - Another good hold for Youzhny, this time from 0-30 down, as he maintains his one break lead. Isner is struggling with his rhythm so far today and mis-hits what should have been a pretty straightforward forehand into the net to hand Youzhny the game
2-1 - Ace, double fault, ace is a mixed opening to Isner's second service game. But he wraps things up by serving an third ace of the game to seal a hold to 30 and get off the mark in this clash. That should get the crowd going a little bit - they've been unsurprisingly quiet in the first few games
2-0 - Youzhny is forced to save two break points but does so when Isner hits into the net on both. And the Russian goes on to hold by drilling a backhand winner straight down the line. Perfect start from the Russian as he consolidates the early break
1-0 - BREAK! Not a great start from Isner as he quickly goes three break points down. He saves the first with a huge first serve and the second with a forehand winner. But a double fault on the third hands Youzhny a very early break in this clash
0-0 - Coming up next the first of the night matches gets underway on the Arthur Ashe Stadium with American 18th seed John Isner taking on Russian 12th seed Mikhail Youzhny
3-6 - WINNER! And this time Stanislas Wawrinka is through to the fourth round as Murray sends a backhand just long down the centre of the court to hand the Swiss player the win. What an incredible match
40-Ad - Wawrinka drills a backhand passing shot down the line to get himself to a 0-30 lead on the Murray serve. Murray levels up at 30-30 with a cross court backhand winner that is slapped away in anger. But a low forehand volley wide from Murray hands Wawrinka a first match point. Murray saves it with an inside out forehand winner but Wawrinka gets a second chance when Murray sends an off-balance backhand wide across court
3-5 - Murray has more treatment at the change of ends, this time on his neck, before Wawrinka holds once again when the Brit sends a backhand wide across court. Murray will have to serve to stay in the US Open now
3-4 - Wawrinka squanders a first break point with a backhand wide down the line and a second when he hits into the net. And Murray produces an ace out wide right on to the sideline to save the third and level up at deuce. A Wawrinka forehand on the next point drops long to hand Murray a game point although the Scot slams a backhand long to squander the chance. But the Scot goes on to hold with a reactionary forehand volley into the open court
2-4 - Wawrinka comparatively races through a service hold to 15 to consolidate the break with a forehand winner and he is now potentially just two games away from knocking Murray out and reaching the fourth round
2-3 - BREAK! Wawrinka has another break of serve and he's nearly there once again. Another lengthy rally ends with the Swiss player pushing Murray way back behind the baseline eventually forcing the Scot to hit a defensive forehand into the net
40-Ad - Wawrinka comes up with an absolutely stunning backhand sliced drop shot that lands just less than a foot away from the net and right on the sideline. Unsurprisingly Murray can't get up to it and after another lenghty rally Murray fires an inside out forehand wide across court to hand Wawrinka another break point. Murray looks to be saying to his camp "I can't continue this" and he's shaking his head and bending over leaning on his knees. He was saying this before the Wawrinka injury as well
2-2 - Wawrinka went off court once again during the change of ends for more treatment, and Murray is having a discussion with the umpire about this grey area of the rules. But the Swiss player comes back out and comes through an undramatic service hold to level up once again
2-1 - A huge hold for Murray as he comes through from 30-30 despite throwing in a double fault (his third of the match). But he has enough to sneak ahead when Wawrinka sends a wild, mis-hit forehand well wide across court. Both these two are going for such huge winners all the time that they are going to miss some by miles!
1-1 - BREAK! Just when it looks as though this might be all over, Murray breaks back. The drama is nowhere near done just yet. The Brit throws absolutely eveything behind a forehand, and luckily for him it goes for a winner to bring up two break back points. The first goes begging when Wawrinka just catches the outside of the line with a forehand (the ball is called out but he correctly challenges). But Murray gets it at the second atttempt when Wawrinka does hit a forehand wide
2-1 - WINNER! We've got another retirement as Michael Llodra is forced to drop out of his match against Tommy Robredo, whilst the Spaniard was leading 3-6 7-6(8) 6-4 2-1 Next up for Robredo will be the winner between Michail Youzhny or John Isner
0-1 - BREAK! Murray has more treatment during the change of ends while Wawrinka goes off for a comfort break during the change of ends. And the time off the court only benefits the Swiss player as he comes back out firing on all cylinders. He's obviously decided that he just needs to get this done and he batters a vicious forehand return of serve straight across court to break the Scot to 15 for the early lead in this set
4-0 - Talking of injuries, Sergiy Stakhovsky was forced to pull out of his match with Lopez after losing the first set 6-3. He was 4-0 behind in the second set, but withdrew because of a toe infection. Let us hope Murray doesn't join him. Murray to begin the fourth set. Crucial game now for the British number one.
3-6 - SET! Wawrinka looks as solid as a rock in racing to 40-0. Drops in a double fault on the first set point, but Murray plays a sloppy drop shot as Wawrinka moves 2-1 ahead in the match. Set to Wawrinka and now Murray is needing more treatment. Trainer back on.
3-5 - A set point for Wawrinka on the Murray serve which Murray manages to stave off. Murray continues to look unhappy with life. Seems to be unhappy with the pace of Wawrinka between points. A fine volley sees Murray move to advantage. He serves out the game, but Wawrinka will have another chance to claim the set on his serve.
2-5 - Floodlights on now. Wawrinka lets out a huge roar as he ties up the seventh game with a booming first serve. He is one game away from taking the third set. Murray serves to stay alive in this set.
2-4 - Wawrinka is back out. Murray pushes his second serve in and the Swiss player wallops the return long. Murray holds serve. Wawrinka remains a break up. Maybe that few minutes of treatment for Wawrinka will help Murray to focus. Who knows? Tough to call the way this match has unravelled.
1-4 - Wawrinka now calls for the trainer. He is need of treatment for a bit of cramp. Murray 40-15 ahead on his own service game. All very unpredictable. Wawrinka now getting tape around his right thigh. All very confusing. Is it cramp? Is it a muscle pull? Only time will tell.
1-4 - A very handy lead for the Swiss player as he opens up a 4-1 lead. A love game and he is suddenly well on top of the British number one. Very alarming conduct by Murray, who seems to be struggling badly. He now has the trainer on the court. Could be a bit of cramp? Let us hope so.
1-3 - BREAK! A double fault by Murray gives Wawrinka his second straight break. Really poor stuff from Murray. Have to ask yourself what is going on with the Scot. Looks all over the place mentally, talking to himself, making gestures etc. It feels like he is doing everything but playing tennis.
1-2 - Wawrinka is growing in confidence the longer this match goes on. He throws down a huge ace that Murray can only admire to move ahead. Have to give the Swiss player a lot of credit for keeping his concentration. Murray has let him off the hook. Needs to regroup and he needs to do it quickly.
1-1 - BREAK! Murray is broken. Seems to be struggling mentally. He lost all four points in that game to drop serve. Would be a brave man to call who is going to win this. Wawrinka is more than equipped to get the job done out there.
1-0 - BREAK! Excellent start to the third set from Murray. He breaks in the opening game. Can't take anything for granted, especially after he broke the Swiss player twice in the second set only to see Wawrinka break straight back.
6-7 - SET! Wawrinka back in this. Murray falls 4-1 behind before he challenges successfully to reduce his arrears to 4-2. He remains a mini-break behind. A big first serve sees Wawrinka move 5-2 ahead. Wawrinka maintains his advantage to bring up two set points. He only needs one as he converts a winning volley for a 7-4 success. After two hour and 18 minutes, we are all level.
6-6 - Wawrinka finds the answers on his serve and makes a dazzling lob to give Murray food for thought. We are heading for the second tie-break of what is becoming an exacting match.
6-5 - A much improved service game from Murray sees him drop in his first ace of the match. He leads. Wawrinka will serve to stay in the set.
5-5 - Suddenly Wawrinka is pumping his fist. The Swiss player is clearly well in the mood to win this second set. Murray would dearly love to deflate his opponent by winning this set.
6-2 - WINNER! Nadal looking in supreme condition. He gives Simon short shrift in completing a 6-4 6-4 6-2 win. All very praiseworthy from the world number one. Into the last 16 as his quest to complete the career Slam by winning the US Open continues.
4-5 - BREAK! Murray berating himself after Wawrinka brings up a break point and seizes it with some piercing backhands. We are back on serve. All very unpredictable this second set. Wawrinka hanging in there.
5-3 - BREAK! Murray continues to talk to himself between points. Probably continues to be annoyed by handing the break back to the Swiss player. The game goes to deuce before Wawrinka slams a forehand from deep long. Chance for Murray to break, which he does after the Swiss player knocks a forehand wide down the line. The fist is pumping. Is Murray over his mini-crisis?
4-3 - Murray produces a better service game to move ahead by the odd game in seven. Still looks the better player of the two, but Wawrinka remains a dangerous opponent as he showed when he pushed Murray to five sets at Wimbledon last year.
3-3 - Murray was looking so, so comfortable, but he has let things slip out there. Seems to be getting more than a little frustrated. Trying to hammer the ball when he doesn't need to, and is making too many unforced errors.
3-2 - A poor, poor service game by Murray. The sort of game that will encourage Wawrinka. He looked down and out, but Murray drops in several mistakes and Wawrinka breaks back. Back on serve.
3-1 - Wawrinka is wearing sunblock to avoid any sunburn. He is being burnt by Murray's range of shots, but does well to prevent the double break. He will be happy to stop the Murray momentum.
3-0 - Murray drops only one point on that service game. All going the Scot's way. Murray is loose and showing what he is about. He has weathered that sticky spell and is surely heading for the last 16.
2-0 - BREAK! Murray's turn to really catch fire. He breaks Wawrinka to love. Has won seven of the last eight games. Completes that game with a lob shot. Classy stuff from the British number one.
6-4 - SET! Seems to be all very routine for Nadal. Like the first set, he needed only one break. Like the first set, he wraps it up 6-4. All going the world number one's way.
1-0 - Murray looking a lot more comfortable now. Really showing his catalogue of shots. Wawrinka looking a bit disheartened. Not the same man who was hitting winner after winner a set ago.
7-6 - SET! Murray takes control of the tie-break as Wawrinka seems to get tighter and tighter. Several errors flowing from the Swiss player's racket. The British hope brings up four set points. Wawrinka saves a couple, one with a delicious drop shot, but he is long with a backhand and Murray claims it 7-3.
6-6 - At 30-30, Wawrinka asks the question of the Scot with a backhand, but Murray follows in the approach before converting the volley. Wawrinka's return of the second serve drifts long and we are into the tie-break.
5-6 - Wawrinka stops the bleeding with a solid service game. Murray looking a bit dejected after failing to really pressure the Swiss player, but he needs to compose himself to take us into an opening tie-break.
5-5 - Murray looking steadier as that Wawrinka forehand finally loses some of its energy. Murray will attempt to break for a second time.
4-5 - BREAK! Murray comes to the net to bring up a break point with a fine volley which is quickly extinguished by a Wawrinka ace. Murray sticks with it as he moves Wawrinka side to side before sliding a winner away which the Swiss player can't return. Wawrinka blows an attempted forehand as Murray breaks back.
3-5 - Murray poses the question of his opponent by holding serve. After 41 minutes, Wawrinka will serve for the first set. Key game for the Swiss player. If he continues as he has done in this opening set, should be a formality.
2-5 - Wawrinka continues his march towards the first set with some piercing serving. Is smashing the ball around at will out there. Murray just needs to hang in there at the moment. Not doing much wrong.
6-4 - SET! Nadal having no such problems against Simon. Just the one break for the world number one was enough to see him polish off the first set.
2-4 - One back for Murray. Needs a break here. Has to hope Wawrinka drops a level or two. At the moment, the Swiss player is hot in the Big Apple.
1-4 - A fifth ace for Wawrinka as the Swiss player cements the break. Murray looks like he has his hands full out there. Warinka getting 72% of his first serves in.
1-3 - BREAK! Wawrinka is a dangerous customer. Can fairly nail a groundstroke. Murray saves a break point, but he is helpless to prevent the Swiss player from breaking him after deuce with some ferocious hitting.
1-2 - A break point for Murray after an error by Wawrinka in knocking a forehand too long. He atones for it with a stunning winning forehand across court. Murray brings up a second break point with a fine return, but Murray mishits as the score returns to deuce. Wawrinka's forehand misfires to give Murray a third break point, which he misses with a lob flying too long. Wawrinka saves four break points. We remain on serve.
1-1 - Wawrinka forces Murray to deuce, but the Scot plays a lovely volley only for Wawrinka to win the next point with a running backhand passing shot. Murray slams down a big serve, but Wawrinka is certainly getting some power on those ground strokes as he recovers to deuce. Another big first serve sees Murray move to advantage before Wawrinka knocks a forehand wide. All square.
2-1 - BREAK! Break for Nadal early on against Simon. Looks like a full house on Arthur Ashe for Nadal's first day game of the tournament. The world number one will be looking to put on a good show for his US fans.
0-1 - Couple of aces to finish off a love game by Wawrinka. Impressive start for the Swiss player. Not much Murray can do about serving like that.
0-0 - Wawrinka to get us under way.
- World number one Nadal holds a 3-1 winning record over Simon. Simon's solitary win came on the hard courts of Madrid two years ago.
- We'll keep you updated with any big movements in the Nadal match with Simon, but our main priority is Andy Murray's match. Murray leads 5-3 on the head to heads. Murray came through in five sets at Wimbledon last year. Wawrinka last beat the Scot two years ago on clay in Italy.
6-4 - WINNER! Querrey is through. A 6-3 6-4 6-4 win for the Queen's champion. Querrey will meet Murray if he comes through his match with Wawrinka.
2-6 - WINNER! Verdasco is through to meet Ferrer in the last 16. Nalbandian was maybe not fully fit, but you can only beat what is in front of you. The eighth seed wins 6-2 3-6 6-3 6-2. A job well done after some indifferent recent results.
6-4 - SET! Querrey on his way to the last 16. You wouldn't write off Almagro, but you wouldn't write him in either. Long way back trailing 6-3 6-4 against the big-serving home hope.
3-6 - SET! Verdasco moves nearer a Spanish dust-up with Ferrer in the last 16 as he claims the second set on Grandstand 6-3. Seems to be moving better than the man from Argentina as he breaks to move 2-1 ahead in the fourth set.
6-3 - SET! Home hope Querrey is off to a storming start on Louis Armstrong. He takes it 6-3. Remember, Andy Murray follows that match. We will have game-by-game coverage as the British number one continues his quest for that elusive first Slam.
6-2 - WINNER! David Ferrer, the 10th seed, eases through in the all-Spanish confrontation. He wins 7-6 6-2 6-2. Ferrer faces a match with David Nalbandian or Fernando Verdasco in the fourth round.
6-3 - SET! Nalbandian is level on Grandstand. The man from Argentina continues to be a dogged fighter. Might be suffering from an ankle injury, but showing no signs of any frailties so far. He levels at 1-1.
6-2 - SET! All going the way of Ferrer it would appear. He has taken the second set 6-2 and is a break up leading 3-1 in the third. Another Spaniard heading through.
7-6 - SET! Ferrer pockets the first set on the breaker by 7-2. Ferrer just edged that first set against his fellow Spaniard, winning 41 points to 39 points from Gimeno-Traver.
2-6 - SET! Verdasco claims the first set in 50 minutes. Perhaps Nalbandian is struggling with his ankle injury. The second set should tell us more about Nalbandian's physical condition.
2-2 - These two locked in a war of attrition out on Grandstand. Whatever happens between these two clay courters, it ain't going to happen quickly. Still in the first set.
16.05 - First out on Grandstand Court is David Nalbandian against Fernando Verdasco. That has the look of five sets, but we shall see.
16.00 - Good afternoon and welcome to today's coverage of day seven from Flushing Meadows.
