Andy Roddick announced last week he would end his tennis career at the 2012 U.S. Open, and Juan Martin del Potro sent the American packing in a fourth-round affair Wednesday at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
If the U.S. Open can produce a 1-versus-2 women's final in two weeks, then top-ranked Serena Williams would meet former No. 1 Victoria Azarenka in a rematch of last year's blockbuster championship match.
The men's draw for the U.S. Open was revealed on Thursday and the final in Flushing Meadows could pit world No. 1 and former champion Novak Djokovic against former top-ranked star and former winner Rafael Nadal.
