Mark Philippoussis wasted liitle time against Janko Tipsarevic in New York on Wednesday.
Philippoussis, who fired 20 aces in the match, got his serve working from the outset and eventually cruised to the opening set 6-2.
Tipsarevic knuckled down in the next, even managing a few aces of his own before capilulating (7-4) in the tiebreak in 53 minutes.
The big-serving Philippoussis, who will be concerned that he made 39 unforced errors in the match, retained his composure in the third to eventually
close out 6-2 7-6 (7-4) 6-4.
