ATP - Indianapolis Tennis ChampionshipsEdit

Andy Roddick was scheduled to receive the number one seeding in this event, but pulled out due to a right hip flexor injury before the main draw was held.[4] Instead 24th ranked Dmitry Tursunov, headlined the event. In the second round Sam Querrey avenged his final round loss at Newport with a straight sets win over fellow American Rajeev Ram.[5] Canadian Frank Dancevic upset number one seeded Dmitry Tursunov to reach the semifinals where he was ousted by Sam Querrey in the semifinal in straight sets. Robby Ginepri neutralized the fast-serving 6'10" American John Isner to set up an All-American final on championship Sunday.[6]
