JAMES MCGEE IS on the brink of his first Grand Slam appearance after a terrific comeback at the US Open last night.
Ireland’s number one battled from a set down to beat the seeded Yuki Bhambri of India 5-7 6-2 7-5 and progress to the third qualifying round.
McGee, 27, trailed 3-5 in the deciding set but dug deep to win the last four games and set up a make-or-break showdown against Ze Zhang of China later today.
A win would book his place in the main draw which begins in Flushing Meadows on Monday and net the world number 195 a minimum prize of almost $36,000.
