Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

If the evitable happens and he meets Henman. I'd rather Roddick be in the finals against Fed than Henman, although Heman might find the occasion of being in the Wimby final too much and choke.

In order for Roddick to be in the finals, he'll have to find some way of overcoming Henman:

Henman leads 3:1
2004 Indian Wells Hard Q 67 76 63 Henman
2003 Paris Carpet S 76 76 Henman
2003 US Open Hard 128 36 67 36 Roddick
2003 Washington Hard S 16 63 76 Henman

Hard 2:1 Henman
Carpet 1:0 Henman

What about you?

Re: Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

Bit early to be assuming it's Federer in the final - Mr Hewitt is certainly capable of taking him out on Wednesday. But anyway, let's think. Roger seems to like playing those he has good h2h over (who doesn't?), which would suggest Roddick. After his IW semi win, he was asked who he'd prefer to play from the second semi, and there was no hesitation: Henman. I expect he'd love to have another shot at him at Wimbledon. My dream final.

By the way, if it's Hewitt in the final, then I wonder who he would want to play. The man he's never lost to, or the guy who beat him two weeks ago at Queen's?

Re: Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

If Andy is playing, it's almost always a no-brainer for me for whom I am going to cheer.

Roddick vs Henman

100% support for Roddick in this match from my side

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

I'm rooting for Henman all the way, and if he can't win, Federer. So... there will be no Roddick rooting from me. Although i did sort of want him to beat Popp today.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

anything other than Duckboy. i couldn't bear it.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Conans Uncle Ted feels that Roddick v Henman will have tie breaks involved.

Me too tennischick!! The English part of me is cheering for Henman all the way - but in my opinion, Roger is by far the best all-round player on the circuit today, and I think he deserves to defend his Wimbledon crown! Hate to say it, but I would even be cheering for Hewitt if he comes up against Duckboy!!!

Andy Roddick defenitely. The whole court would be against Federer if Tim passes to the finals. But that might be an advantage to Federer as well, the pressure might get on Tim.

Re: Omg, I might be cheering for Roddick in the semis...

If I am Fed, I want to play Henman as much as you guys think Roddick sucks, Andy's number 2 for a reason. Henman has played Fed this year, Fed beat him pretty handily last time they met and Fed knows that game pretty well. Andy and Fed havn't met since last year. Andy can do alot of things he couldn't last year, the most notible is the ROS and volley. Andy won't crack under the crowd of London, after already winning USO. Tim on the other hand, I see that as a possiblity. Tim knows hes getting old and may never make it back. There's just alot of baggage Tim brings along with him, the loss earlier in the year to Fed, all this being about being England's only hope in this tourny. Andy can go out there to play with nothing to lose, no one expects much, that and the fact that Fed and Andy havn't played in awhile vote in Andy's favor, last year they went 1:2 with Fed having the edge...Roddick is the stronger...lol not saying Roddick will win, I am just saying if I am Fed, I will pick Tim but niether guys is exactly easy.
