Experienced American Taylor Dent will face Spaniard Navarro in the second round at US Open. Dent was a successful player who has won 4 ATP singles titles during his career and reached the finals of three other events on tour. Dent's most memorable performance of his career so far came at the 2004 Summer Olympics, where he made a push all the way to the semifinals, where he was defeated by eventual gold medalist Nicolas Massu of Chile. In the 2006 and 2007 seasons, Dent did not play very many competitive matches, due to the recurring back and groin problem. He had back surgery on March, 2007. Last year, he returned from injury receiving a wild card and played at the Carson challenger in USA. It was his first match since Feb. 2006. He lost his first round match to Cecil Mamiit. In July 2008 Dent took a wild card into his first ATP tour event for two seasons at the Hall of Fame tennis tournament in Newport, Rhode Island. He lost in three sets to Canada's Frank Dancevic. In November 2008 Dent won his first comeback match at the Champaign challenger against Frederic Niemeyer. He followed this win up by defeating number 2 seed and fellow American Robert Kendrick. In the third round Dent had to withdraw against Sam Warburg. Using his protected ranking of 56, Dent played the 2009 Australian Open, where he was eliminated in the first round by Amer Delic. He has showed some other solid performances this year but he is still far from being at his best and his latest results are at least disappointing. He used to be a great server but now, he usually produces more double faults than aces and his performances are just too inconsistent for us.He will face Spaniard Ivan Navarro who is far from being world class player. He is untypical Spanish player as he is able to play on fast surfaces pretty well (mainly thanks to his good serve). His YTD record is poor but he is a fighter with class better movement than his opponent. We like Taylor Dent but he hasn’t done anything that would justify him to be such a big favourite. Anything above 2.5 is worth taking for us.
