2010 U.S. Open First Round: Robert Kendrick, Gael Monfils Headed For First Five-Set Match

American Robert Kendrick is looking to pull off the first big upset of the 2010 U.S. Open against No. 17 Gael Monfils. The two are headed to a deciding fifth set after Kendrick took the fourth set in a tiebreaker. The two have been playing for over two hours, 30 minutes.

Kendrick took the first set 6-4, but Monfils took the next two and appeared to be poised to take the match in four. Kendrick fought back, however, to force a fifth set despite his best weapon — his first serve — letting him down throughout the match.
