Istomin has beaten the 20th seed Andreas Seppi 6-3 6-4 2-6 3-6 6-1 and will play Andy in the 4th round.
He has a 24/24 w/l record this year, but  did take a set off Djokovic  (6-2) in Montreal

This will be a tight match I reckon. Hopefully Andy in 3 ....but wouldnt be surprised to see Istomin win a set.

Good to see that Andy beat him earlier this year.  Don't know much about him other than his funky glasses, which he changes to match his shirt.  Seems to be playing well.  Hope Andy can see him off in 3 but being cautious I think I'll vote Andy in 4 (as I did last round so like the players I like to stick with a winning formula  Whistle ) If Andy can carry on where he left off yesterday it should be 3 but another slow start and he could pay the price of a set.   Fingers crossed that he isn't stuck out on Armstrong again.  Can't believe that they've put Ferrer out on Grandstand again while no 7 seed once more on AA (or at least I can believe it and I think it's a disgrace).
Not sure I'll be able to watch as out tomorrow evening so will depend on timing.

Thanks! Don't know who took the Istomin photo, but I looked for a matching Andy pic by Ella Ling - she gets very dramatic lighting effects http://ellaling.smugmug.com/Tennis

Yeah the schedulers, I bet, are really pushing some players buttons with the cradling of Fed and Nadal....especially Fed who is ATP no7 and hasnt won the USopen since 2008. Surely...if Fed goes out in qtrs and slips any further down rankings and receives same privileges they'll need the riot vans next time out. Andy has been treated dismissively at this comp... the current holder of the USopen should have been 1st on court...and played on Ashe the whole comp period.

I quite agree the scheduling has been disgrateful for andy having beenthetitle holder. it would not have been in any other grand salem. never mind all might be alright in the end. who is doing this sceduling at the end of the day. nole federer have been the favorites to be on arthur ashe. federe is seeded 7th.  what about poor ferrer. no respect for the other players.

I think they are just hoping Fed gets to the quarters so they can have their first meeting at the US Open, and also assuming it'll add a bit of drama to the quarters.  They must know his odds of winning are slim, and I don't think it's in their interests to help him win anyway.
