The 2009 Men's U.S. Open Draw was announced today and right at the top of the draw sheet a pairing stood out to me.
#1 Roger Federer (SUI) vs. Devin Britton (USA)
The current NCAA Champ Devin Britton, who was given a wildcard because of his NCAA title will take on the greatest player of all time and he appears to be embracing it. See his Twitter post:
The match, which will more than likely be a night match on Arthur Ashe Stadium Court will show a national television audience what the future of American Tennis might look like. Nobody expects Britton to beat Federer, or even take a set, but it gives a promising young American an experience he will never forget. Should be fun to watch.
