Today's Result: loss to Horacio Zeballos (Argentina) in five sets

Fischer went through qualifying to reach his first ever Slam. He gave Zeballos a good match, too, losing 8-6 in the fifth.

Catching Up with Old Friends

Kai-Chen Chang (Curtain Call, US Open Day 3) - This was Chang's first Roland Garros so, despite the fact that she lost in the first round, her general upward trend continues. Her current ranking stands at #89, good enough for direct entry into Wimbledon. It will be the first time for her in the main draw of that event as well. She's still only 19.

All Part of My Fantasy

Safina going down was a rough loss for me. I had Dinara in the semifinals. I'm doing better on the men's side. All eight of my quarterfinalists are still alive after the first round.
