Fourth-seeded David Ferrer beat Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands in straight-sets after winning a tiebreaker 14-12 in Friday's second round of the U.S. Open. Ferrer defeated the 78th-ranked qualifier 6-2, 6-3, 7-6 (12). In a year in which Spain's top player, Rafael Nadal, is absent because of injury, Ferrer was still the fourth man from that country to advance to the third round, with two others - Tommy Robredo and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez - playing their second-round matches later Friday. Ferrer saved three set points in the third to get off the court in 2 hours, 7 minutes on an 88-degree afternoon in the Grandstand stadium. The 30-year-old Spaniard made the third round at Flushing Meadows for the eighth straight year.
