Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - South African Kevin Anderson advanced to the
second round, but seventh seed Alex Bogomolov Jr. of Russia was ousted Monday
on a rainy day at the Atlanta Open tennis event.
Anderson, seeded fifth, defeated Italian Paolo Lorenzi, 6-4, 6-3; while 19-
year-old American wild card Jack Sock topped Bogomolov, 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 on the
hardcourts at Atlantic Station.
Also Monday, France's Nicolas Mahut topped Chile's Paul Capdeville, 6-3, 3-6,
6-4; Steve Johnson beat fellow American Donald Young, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3; Russian
Igor Kunitsyn upended American Brian Baker, 6-4, 6-7 (3-7), 6-3; and Gilles
Muller of Luxembourg got by Australian Marinko Matosevic, 7-6 (7-5), 6-4. The
Baker match didn't end until 1:21 a.m. (et) due to the wet conditions that
delayed play earlier in the evening.
This week's top seeds are last week's Newport champion John Isner and his
fellow American Mardy Fish, who has beaten Isner here in the last two all-
American Atlanta finals.
Former world No. 1 Andy Roddick is also in the draw here as a fourth seed.
The winner of this $477,900 tournament will pocket $86,270.
