That's okay, Andy.

Mutis played well.

I don't think I've ever seen him play any worse than he did, and serve more worse than that :retard: now go to grass courts

Re: Andy Roddick is out in RG!

The real worry for Roddick is that once his patience began to evaporate on the clay against a dogged opponent, so did his will to fight and his ability to keep the ball in court, and he only got on the board in the final set through a mini-choke from Mutis. It sounds as though the same problems he showed in the Canas match in Rome were evident here - wildly overhitting forehands and serve-volleying on second serves at inopportune moments. It shows that his problems on clay are tactical as well as mental.

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.

Apart from his other, even greater win against the Bagel Boy of course. With his two wins here Mutis has saved ESPN viewers from continual American domination - allez, Olivier!

ok this has got to be the dumbest thing written. HE was in the 2nd round and won, how the hell was a 2nd round win his first of the year :retard:


and sjeng I agree, its completely tactical and mental. If he would have kept up his play in set 1, he would have easily crushed Mutis today. He choked away that lead in both set 2 and 4, and Mutis upped his play big time. He deserved the win out there though, he hits some incredible shots.

Thumbs up Re: Andy Roddick is out in Paris

Mutis played very well...

I noticed that since his last year's wimbledon's loss to Srichaphan...unfortunately, his rank has not allowed him to play much in tournaments except challengers and when he did most likely he met someone better...

hopefully this is the chance for him to break through....

Better luck next time Roddick, but you should have fought more in the last set...oh well, come back stronger next year!!!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Roddick, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Ljubicic, Bovina, Li Na, Ivanovic, Chan YJ, Dementieva, Vinci, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Vaidisova, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players in the world!!!

Re: Andy Roddick is out in Paris

Andy's serve % is what hurt him. He still is not able to deal with players able to make him play so many balls. Andy could have won this match but Andy's strokes are so big that guys who are great movers on clay and can defend are able to keep making Andy play and the patience begins to crack. He is still very young and Mutis did play very well in the last two sets. It was mostly his doing not Andy's although Andy's mental breakdown in the 5th didn't do him any favors.

Re: Andy Roddick is out in Paris

I didn't seem that it was tactical and mental at all. Roddick was sevring as he usualy does in the first set, and won it only 6-3. In the second set and later on he couldn't serve so good - as he usually isn't able to neither - and the better player won.

Roddick was so tired last two sets. I saw immidiately what is going to happen since the second set. Roddick was lucky not to loose 3-1 and with 6-0 or so in the last two sets.
