Brilliant effort from Andy

Simply not as bad on clay as people think.

Raises his game for DC once again.

Wake me up when he beats a top player near their peak on clay.

Roddick goes to 7-0 over Melzer.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Melzer the eternal choker

He was a break up in the 5th and had all the momemtum in the world after fighting back in the 4th...

Roddick

USA



wish he could have taken care of things with less difficulty, but any win on the red stuff for USA is a good win

I think that's a pretty fair comment. Results aren't everything, but he has a number of half-decent wins on the dirt.

I just hope he is playing a little better than he was at the AO, although it sounds like he probably wasn't. I think Koubek should be fancying his chances on Sunday, although Blake should, potentially, prove to be a much greater test today imo. He has the power to hit through Koubek, so much will depend on whether he can play consistently enough.

He's St. Polten champion, beating "clay-courter" Davydenko in the final
