Nation: USA
Age: 27
Current Ranking: 186

Today's Result: loss to Michael Llodra (France) in four sets

I have featured Witten in this space before. He was my Curtain Call for Day 6 of the US Open after his brilliant run to the third round. His ranking shot up to a career high of #163 in January but had been gradually heading southward since. He qualified for his first-ever Wimbledon last week and taking a set off of Llodra, one of the world's under-appreciated grass court talents, is a good result.
