the worst match I've ever seen in my life. Roddick is a pathetic choker.

Wow, chokes galore. Stepankek so hesistant on that set point in the TB.

Roddick blew so many chances, probably a good thing Steps served a double to end it.

Well done Andy.

Roddick tried to take it to a 3rd set. Bull rushing the net on just about any approach shot. Andy was in a hurry to finish it for whatever reason. Let Radek get back into it twice. O well, A WIN IS A WIN!

Summed up Stepanek well. Played good tennis when the match was 'gone' (e.g. down a double break, down 5 MPs) but then when he actually got close enough to put himself in a winning position, tightened up.

Re: Brisbane F:Roddick def. Stepa 7-6 7-6

Atrocious line-calling. There were many questionable calls in the second set tiebreak alone. Roddick complained to Murphy about the line calls being bad all week and that it is embarassing.

Shame that it ended like that after a great fight from Steps. Roddick got really tight.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Brisbane F:Roddick def. Stepa 7-6 7-6

Roddick's approach shots were particularly atrocious in this match, he was rushing the net like a mad man and Steps was taking advantage of that

Duck lead *5-2 in the second set and managed to get himself into a TB which he was winning as well but ended up having set points against

These two were really trying to outchoke the other and the fact that it ended with a DF is a perfect summary of how crappy the match was in that last set

This tournament definitely needs Hawk-Eye, Roddick should have won earlier on the TB and he was denied due to a bad calling, the linesjudges were atrocious all week long but specially in this match

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Brisbane F:Roddick def. Stepa 7-6 7-6

well done roddick i felt he really wanted this tournament, thats why he probably got tight at the end.
