Andy Roddick led three American men into the third round of the BNP Paribas Open last night. He played dog poop tennis to get past Austrian caveman David Koellerer in straight sets. Earlier, John Isner rallied to upset Gael Monfils in three sets, but the cleanest victory of the day came from Sam Querrey who rode the cheers of his own J-Block-like fan club to pick apart an in-form Radek Stepanek in routine straights.
Mardy Rish, Taylor Dent, who's trying to comeback from a slew of injuries, Bobby Reynolds, Michael Russell, Todd Widom, and Ryan Sweeting, who froze like a dear in headlights after being up a set and a break over Juan Martin del Potro, weren't so lucky. James Blake advanced to the third round night before last.
