    I'm rooting for Justine Henin-Hardenne and Andre Agassi. Yeah, it's going to be a long shot.

    I hope Lleyton Hewitt gets ousted ASAP.

    Ladies: It might be Davenport or Clister. It could be Sharapova if her back is in good condition.

    Men: Federer

    Mens could be either Safin or Federer (if they're not on the same side of the draw).

    Ladies, I support Sharapova and Dementieva

    Hope 1 of them will win. But I don't think that Dementieva is strong enough to be able to beat everyone. But who know. Like her, she is pretty.
    I like Mary Pierce also, but seldom see her recently.

    For the man, want Safin to win, lol.

    SAFIN MISSES US OPEN WITH INJURY

    Fifth seed Marat Safin has been forced to pull out of this week's US Open in New York because of a knee injury.

    The 25-year-old Russian, who won the Flushing Meadows tournament in 2000, has been bothered by tendinitis in his left knee for most of the summer.

    He took six weeks off before returning to action earlier this month at Cincinnati, where he lost to Robby Ginepri in the quarter-finals.

    Safin was scheduled to face Alexander Popp of Germany in the first round.

    But Popp will now face fellow German Bjorn Phau, a 'lucky loser' from the qualifying competition.

    A statement on Safin's personal website said: "Although Marat wanted more than anything to play and has tried whatever he could to be ready, as a professional tennis player he has had to admit his body is saying it is too soon.

    "He will return to Italy to continue treatment and ensure that his knee is fully recovered.

    "It is not known how long he will be out but this time he will make sure he does not rush into returning.

    "Marat still wants to play tennis and he will be back."

    After winning the Australian Open in January, Safin struggled to regain form and concentration as his knee began to affect him.

    He lost in the third round of Wimbledon and then missed seven weeks of competition when he underwent surgery to repair a knee ligament tear. Safin missed Russia's 3-2 Davis Cup quarter-final win over France in July.

    Read the news.

    Struggling Henman out of US Open

    Tim Henman's disappointing season continued as he crumbled to a 6-4 6-2 6-2 defeat to Fernando Verdasco in the first round of the US Open.

    The 12th seed was troubled by a back injury in the lead-up to the tournament and it clearly affected him.

    Big-hitting Spaniard Verdasco wrapped up victory in less than two hours.

    Henman has won only one match since crashing out of Wimbledon in the second round and could now lose his British number one status to Greg Rusedski.

    Rusedski and compatriot Andy Murray are also in action on Tuesday.

    Henman's defeat means he has failed to advance beyond the third round at any of this year's Grand Slam tournaments.

    The 30-year-old was first afflicted by the chronic back injury that hampered him against Verdasco a year ago.

    On that occasion, the Briton still managed an impressive run to the semi-finals but there was little chance of a repeat this year once he was broken in the seventh game of the first set.

    Having lost the first set, he dropped serve twice in each of the next two sets as 20-year-old left-hander Verdasco cruised to victory.
