Nikolay Davydenko defeated American Michael Russell in straight sets, 6-4, 6-1, 6-3, in the first round of the 2010 U.S. Open. It's a good start for the Russian, who made two straight trips to the Open semis in 2006 and 2007.

Still, it wasn't easy for Davydenko. Russell, despite making 46 unforced errors, hung around for 140 minutes.
