Day 3 of the 2011 U.S. Open had several highlights, which started with Venus Williams withdrawing from the tournament before the start of her second round match. She has Sjögren’s Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that affects her energy levels.
At the end of the night, Andy Roddick survived his match with Michael Russell, but then he had a classic anti-TV analyst rant on ESPN after the match.
