Just 21, Ryan Harrison has a pretty mature understanding of what it takes to make it on the ATP tour. "You've got to love the process," Harrison said after his 6-3, 7-5 win over former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt on Tuesday in a first-round Citi Open match at William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center. "No matter how tense any moment can get out there, it's what we live for, it's what we play for. " That mantra will be worth recalling today, when he will meet top-seeded Juan Martin Del Potro, a Wimbledon semifinalist and two-time Citi Open champion, in the second round.
