2010 US Open: day 6 recap

– Top stars Federer, Djokovic, Wozniacki and Sharapova breeze into fourth round. Only semi-surprise: 2008 runner-up Jelena Jankovic was ousted was 31th seed Kaia Kanepi.

US player of the day: Mardy Fish
It took him 3 1/2 hours and five sets, but Mardy Fish managed to advance to fouth round with his win over Arnaud ClĂ©ment. It’s an awesome summer for him: he won in Newport (grass) and Atlanta (hard) and reached the final in Cincinnati (lost to Federer). Fish’s next opponent: Novak Djokovic.

Stat of the day: 3
Top seed Caroline Wozniacki only lost 3 games in 3 matches. The task should be harder in the 4th round where she’ll meet 2006 US Open champion Maria Sharapova.

Player of the day: Maria Sharapova
Sharapova double-bageled young american Beatrice Capra to advance to round 4.
