The quarter-finals are here already in New York

For the first time in his career, American Donald Young has made it into the fourth round of the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, and he is gathering more and more followers with each step along the way, as can be read in this blog entry from Shane Bacon of Yahoo! Sports.

At a time when Andy Roddick has been experiencing a slight decline, what was needed in tennis was another American to ascend on the men's side to draw attention and fans, and Young -- with some eccentricities of behaviour such as wearing his cap sideways -- is filling the bill as he progresses through the two-week tournament.

The top 5 men are all in action today in New York, and thus far the top seed has advanced as Novak Djokovic was victorious this morning. Three-seed Roger Federer also won his match today, and is guaranteed a spot in the Final 8.

On the women's side, Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have both advanced to the quarter-finals, Here is a look at the matchups in the quarters, also via Yahoo Sports.

Here is a link to all completed matches in the competition thus far, with clickable links to all categories of the competition.
