"GO MAXIMO!" we shouted last night, as we supported our favorite underdogs, Argentine Maximo Gonzalez (who looks an awful lot like our brother-in-law) and the Aussie Samantha Stosur. However, it was an evening full of disappointments. Venus Williams went on to defeat Samantha 6-2, 6-3 to join her sister Serena in the second round at Flushing Meadows. Roger Federer, aiming for his fifth straight U.S. Open title, moved into the next round of the 2008 US Open following a 6-3, 6-0, 6-3 win over Maximo. We left early in the third set to avoid the post-game-rush. See Ve-Wil and Sam-Sto in Action!
