Defending champion Kim Clijsters brushed aside 19-year-old, 201st-ranked qualifier Sally Peers of Australia in less than an hour, 6-2, 6-1, to reach the third round of the 2010 US Open at Flushing Meadows, New York on Wednesday (September 1).

In the men's draw the late matches produced a mixture of emotions for the home crowd, with towering  6-foot-9-Inch American John Isner defeating Portugal's Frederico Gil, 6-4, 6-3, 6-4.  

However 2003 US Open Champ' Andy Roddick made a second round exit after a tense match against 44th-ranked Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia was decided via a fourth set tie-break. Tipsarevic emerged victorious, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 7-6 (4), to reach the third round at the U.S. Open for the first time.  

Day three of the 2010 US Open continued in New York on Wednesday, with the broiling heat showing no respite.

Towering 18th-seeded John Isner, however, put in a cool display against Portugal's Frederico Gil in his first round match.  The 6-foot-9 American needed less than two hours to continue his tournament with a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Gil.

 In the ladies draw defending champion Kim Clijsters was little match for 201st-ranked qualifier Sally Peers of Australia, who eventually succumbed to a 6-2, 6-1 defeat.  

Clijsters hit 22 winners against just eight as she took less than an hour to get the better of the 19-year-old, who was playing in her first grand slam tournament.  

In the high profile match on the men's side of the draw former champion Andy Roddick was expected to dominate 44th-ranked Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia in their match.

 Despite winning the opening set with ease, 6-3, the Serbian then rallied and moved into a 2-1 set lead at the start of the fourth - which eventually went to a tie break.  

In one of the shock results of the tournament so far Roddick made an early exit. The ninth-seeded Roddick won his only Grand Slam title at Flushing Meadows in 2003, and he also was the runner-up in 2006.

Tipsarevic moves into the third round at the U.S. Open for the first time.
