U.S. Open Day 1: “Mr. Cranky Pants” [VIDEO]
The first day of the U.S. Open was met with some surprises. Wimbledon Champion Petra Kvitova was knocked out in the first round and Maria Sharapova struggled against Heather Watson, dropping the first set before coming back to win the next two. Perhaps the most entertaining event of the first day was 19-year-old Ryan Harrison’s temper tantrum as he lost in straight sets to Marin Cilic.
Harrison was heralded “Mr. Cranky Pants” by Tennis Channel broadcaster Mary Carillo. I’m hoping the nickname sticks.
