Lely High School graduate Jesse Witten was a Cinderella story in the 2009 U.S. Open. Witten made it all the way through qualifying for the second time in four years, then didn't stop. He upset No. 29 Igor Andreev of Russia in straight sets, beat Maximo Gonzalez in the second round, and took No. 4 Novak Djokovic to four sets before falling on Saturday.
