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.

WASHINGTON - -Since the Wimbledon championship July 5, rising American tennis star Sam Querrey has reached the finals of two tournaments and won another. In the same four-week span, top-ranked American Andy Roddick has played just 55 minutes of competitive tennis. So it was understandable, when the big-serving pair met Thursday at Washington's Legg Mason Tennis Classic, that Querrey was the sharper player. But on this night, as so often in life, experience compensated for any momentary shortcoming.

PARIS - And so Argentines everywhere had their prayers answered yesterday. Four of their compatriots are in the semifinals of the French Open. Three of the four are men. First, unseeded Gaston Gaudio, a modest man with a bold backhand, thoroughly broke down Lleyton Hewitt, 6-3, 6-2, 6-2, in one hour, 55 minutes. Then, David Nalbandian, using controlled offense and carefully plotted defense, wore out the tiring three-time French Open champion Gustavo Kuerten, 6-2, 3-6, 6-4, 7-6 (6). That sends No. 8 seed Nalbandian and Gaudio against each other tomorrow, guaranteeing that at least one Argentine will reach the French final for the first time since Guillermo Vilas won the tournament in 1977.

NEW YORK - It wasn't the first time Roger Federer had sent a rocket shot at David Nalbandian, but this one had the biggest impact. No one has ever claimed that Nalbandian, who is one of the finest baseline players in the game, is a great volleyer, and on break point to end the second set Federer lashed one at his Argentine opponent, who was at the net. Too fast. Too hard. Too tough to handle. "I thought about taking the racket away," said Nalbandian, who thought for an instant the force of the shot might send it beyond the baseline.

WASHINGTON -- A week ago, Andre Agassi walked onto the court in Cincinnati for his first match in that city's Masters' Series tournament and his brain was alive with questions. Why had he lost in the round of 32 the week before? Why had he won the match before that? Why wasn't he able to string back-to-back wins together? "I had every bit as many questions as anyone else," said Agassi, who will begin play as the No. 1 seed in the Legg Mason Tennis Classic tonight against Rockville's Paul Goldstein, a wild-card entry.

NEW YORK - Andy Roddick's back hurt, but he served at 139 mph. And his foot was so badly inflamed he needed a 10-minute medical timeout to have it patched, padded, sprayed and wrapped. It was shortly after Roddick's foot repair at the start of the second set that his opponent, Juan Ignacio Chela, ran him from one end of Queens to the other on a single point. The idea was to make Roddick's foot hurt more. But No. 11 seed Roddick turned into Superman. He recovered from being pulled far right of the court and then far left.

Robby Ginepri upset 2003 champion Juan Carlos Ferrero 7-5, 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 6-4 on Saturday to give the United States one man in the fourth round of the French Open. Ginepri, who has beaten two seeded players, is ranked 98th and hadn't won a main-draw match on clay this year before arriving in Paris. "I'm quite surprised that (Ferrero) lost," said Spanish countryman Rafael Nadal , who beat Lleyton Hewitt 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. Also advancing were third-seeded Novak Djokovic — Ginepri's next opponent — No. 7 Fernando Verdasco and No. 11 Mikhail Youzhny . No. 6 Andy Roddick , though, lost 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 to 114th-ranked qualifier Teimuraz Gabashvili of Russia and acknowledged: "I got outplayed from the first ball."
