Not much revenge involved in this one. With Ram serving up 15-0 at 5-6 in the 1st set Rajeev reaggrivated his right calf injury. He was barely able to move after that point. He gutted it out because he was playing in front of the home crowd, but had it been any other tournament he said he would have probably stopped playing. Its too bad too because up to that point both players were playing at a very high level.
"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
