Mardy Fish Advances to 4th Newport Quarter-Final, Dustin Brown Advances
In Wednesday's first match on Center Court, No. 5 seed Mardy Fish advanced to his fourth quarter-final showing in Newport, after defeating India's Somdev Devvarman in straight sets. Jamaican Dustin Brown was a star of the day, winning the biggest match of his career when he upset No. 1 seed and world No. 19 Sam Querrey, 6-4, 6-3. All eyes were on the court for the final singles match of the day, which pinned the two young American wild cards 18-year-old Ryan Harrison and 17-year-old Denis Kudla against each other for the opportunity to advance to their first quarter-final match. Harrison overcame Kudla and at 18 years, 2 months, he became the youngest player in tournament history (since 1977) to reach the quarter-finals in Newport.
