NEW YORK – America's dream team in mixed doubles, Melanie Oudin and Ryan Harrison, has lost to the top seeds in the second round of the U.S. Open.
Bob Bryan and Liezel Huber defeated Oudin and Harrison, 5-7, 6-1 and 10-3 in a third-set tiebreaker Saturday night.
The 18-year-old Oudin carved out a place in U.S. Open lore with her run to the quarterfinals last year. The 18-year-old Harrison made it to the second round this year where he fell 8-6 in a fifth-set tiebreaker Friday.
Things looked promising when they broke Huber's serve late in the first set to take the lead. But Bryan and Huber overwhelmed the Americans from there, taking only 32 minutes to win the second set and third-set tiebreaker.
