USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

I can't wait for this one.

People were saying Andy sucks and will lose to Gulbis (or even Santoro ), but after convincing performance against Santoro, thing have changed a bit. However, Gulbis is no Santoro.
They haven't played each other yet.

Gulbis takes this one in 4 great sets!
But it's going to be tough with loud american crowd behind Andy, hmmm.

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

I'll give anything to see Andy lose. I am an American and love American athletes but Andy is a disgrace and he needs to be put into retirement soon. I think seeing Andy lose is always one of the best scenes in any sport.

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

Pretty sure Roddick will take this one. Gulbis at the moment is still a pretty stupid player. Trying to hit winners going for risk shots all over the place won't do him any good against Roddick's monster serve if you ask me -_-

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

Sorry cyrusking, you will be disappointed again, A-Rod in 4. (maybe even 3 if his serves "really" on) I'm just don't think E-Gul has the mental strength to hold up under the kind of onslaught he will see from Roddick.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Roddick does like to tease. He will lose sooner than later

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

Roddick looked very good so I'll pick him in 4 sets.

Home slam, gotta expect Roddick to step up and take this.

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

I think that Gulbis will win this one. Andy showed a really good performance against Fabrice, but Gulbis is another caliber!!!!

ˇVamos Rafa!

Gulbis is a terrible match up for Roddick.

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

I'm pretty sure this match will be on Arthur Ashe in the night session. Worst case for Gulbis. Needless to say Roddick will win this one.

Re: USO R2: Roddick(8) - Gulbis

While I would normally take Gulbis in this situation I think so many people expect him to win and that he will inevitably disappoint. Plus he is overrated at the moment as he isn't even a top 30 player yet. Roddick in 4 though I would relish seeing Gulbis beat him down.
