Young American upstart, Ryan Harrison fell hard to 27th seeded Marin Cilic in straight sets. Cilic rolled 6-2, 7-5, 7-6. The Croatian will move on to face the winner of the Michael Yani vs. Bernard Tomic match.
The loss ends Harrison's run at the Open before it really began. Many observers came into New York feeling as though he could make noise much like Melanie Oudin did in 2009. Now they must wait to see if another upstart American, Michael Yani, can move on to get a shot at Cilic.
