The results have shown."

The schedule still isn't up on the AO site...perhaps they forgot.

Re: Re: .: Wednesday scores/results :.

Oh you wait for it bunk, the "American duo bounce Czechs" headlines will be popping up all over the place tomorrow like gold nuggets in a chunk of rock... go Czech nobodies!

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: .: Wednesday scores/results :.

Roddick will probably win easily, but that match could be fun because Uhlirach has one of the craziest returns of serve, he almost always goes for the laser return of serve winner, even when he plays someone with a weak serve.
That means his opponents most of the time held serve easily because he throws the return out of the court all the time.
If he is a little lucky he may break Andy's serve and steal a set.

Korda used to return like that (it must be a czech thing) off course Korda was a lot better doing that, and he did it with a one handed backhand.

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Nah, I doubt it. The Aussie national colours are green and gold anyhow, that's what the Davis Cup team all wear.

Re: .: Wednesday scores/results :.

Good luck to czech nobodies, Chela, if you feel like you can beat Roddick, beat Dent.

I think Gaudio has to play today, is the play schedule complete?

I miss: Ivan Lendl, Korda, Novak, Bruguera, Rios, Kucera, Courier, Mantilla, Costa, Santoro and Ferreira.

Good luck to:

Gaudio, Murray, Florian Mayer, Chela, Nalbandian, Radek Stepanek, Volandri, Youzhny and Verdasco.

Re: .: Wednesday scores/results :.

Andy's 3-0 against the guy without dropping a set and has beaten him on 3 diff. surfaces (clay, grass, rebound ace). Though nothing is impossible, I would be shocked if Andy has much trouble, especially since all their matches were in 2002 and Andy's just a little bit better than he was then

Yes, the Rebound Ace match was in the first round of Sydney when Roddick won the first set in 16 minutes and then went on to win 0 and 4... however, Ulihrach choked big time in Monte Carlo when he served for the first set and had setpoints in both sets but ended up losing in two breakers. The Wimbledon match was a retirement, so not much to gauge from that.

My conclusion? Yeah, Roddick will probably win easily. But it's always worth hoping.

Re: Re: Re: .: Wednesday scores/results :.

BTW, I think the complete schedule has been posted in a thread over on WTAWorld, either on GM or in the AO forum.
