sunday survey: who will go furthest?

Who’s got next? Oh, how the tables have turned! Mardy Fish is having an Andy Roddick-like summer (think 2003, when the Austin native was 20-1 prior to the Open), Fish winning a US Open Series title while making the final of two more and was red-hot this week in Cincinnati. Fish will no doubt be the highest-ranked American in the draw (Roddick is due to fall out of the top 20 next week), but will he go the furthest at Flushing?

You never know what will happen in New York. And have you noticed? Summer has been quite the season for Ryan Harrison, Alex Bogolomov Jr. and James Blake. While it’s unlikely, any of those three fellas have a legit shot at making a run at the year’s final major. Why not?! So this week, we wonder: Which American will have the best US Open? Vote below and argue your case in the comments.

    I would love to see Isner make a deep run! It would just make my US Open, I wouldn’t care what else happened, although I know that is quite unrealistic, at least for the USA it looks like Mardy Fish can defiantly make the second week, would be great for American tennis if her were to send a real surprise and make the semi’s or the big final.

    I’ve voted for Mardy. I picked him out on my hard court season prediction post earlier this month, so not changing my mind.

    Isner I don’t see doing much. Roddick is past it now which is unfortunate. Maybe if the draw goes well for Harrison he could make a little run in front of his home crowd…
