Re: From King of TB's to Mug of TB's

What an irony. Andy had won 18 TB's in a row and then lost 2 easy tie-breaks in a row to Gasquet.

To Gasquet, one of the major chokers on tour.

Re: From King of TB's to Mug of TB's

I hate matches like this.

Guy is basically about to lose and then he decides to play while the other guy can't close it.

I don't know how anyone can praise Richie for just starting to play at the end of the third. And whoever ends up winning if Andy chokes this away will get killed by Roger next round.

Gasquet deserves a lot of credit too. Some awesome backhands.

Voo de Mar, this is what I meant when I was having that discussion with you on your tiebreak thread, about tbs.

This shows as big as anything, that all tbs are so different. Winning them in a QF against a quality player would have made andy's record very sweet. But if you lose these when it counts, then it really makes you wonder what that tb record is all about

Re: From King of TB's to Mug of TB's

Gasquet is litteraly on fire, somebody has drenched him in gasoline and lit him up. Hes running round and hitting strokes like a robot.

It's true but after all Roddick has won in his career the tie-breaks in QF, SF & Final of the Grand Slam events.
