Steve Johnson US Open Tennis

Looking great at serving up to 127mph and a very effective second (107) serve USCs #1 player went through his opponent in grand fashion in the first to sets--6-4, 6-4. Johnson's served and volley tactics at every opportunity seem to really bother the 44th ranked Bogomov, then with a few bad line calls in the third Steve lost 3-6. In  a fourth set tie breaker and cramping up he will end up in a 5th set, well he lost the 4th set 7-6 and the fifth 6-3. It was a great effort for a player that has never had to play 3 out of 5 sets to win a match. 

On the bright side he is still in the mens doubles and with his abilities could go a ways in the draw, but the good sign in all this he will probably be back for his Senior year. Coming back to USC and not turning pro will enable him to work on his Two Handed backhand (I don't know why he doesn't switch to a one hander as did Pete Sampras did) and also being more patience in the grand slam events witch are 3 out of 5.
