Roddick vs. Canas

So, do you think Guillermo will give Roddick any trouble, or will Roddick get through in straight sets?

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

Roddick is currently up 3-0.

If he bagels Canas, it will have been the third match in a row.

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

start as many threads as you want TF. Lud knows i'm too lazy/busy to!

you won't be able to judge Canas performance until the 3rd set.

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)

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

you're welcome dahlin'.

Canas IMO is an endurance player. if he wins the 3rd set, we have a match.

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

Hello Tennischick, so are you looking forward to tomorrow's matches? I hope Rogi gets full slot for his match.

How true is that? That said, he's having a great deal of difficulty holding these last couple of service games.

Oh, John. Roddick would not win this matchup on clay if he was playing this well, because he would not play this well on clay. Sigh. I usually like John, but please.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

i think it's true Becca. the gamble is to allow Duckboy to use up some of his strength with his 150mph serves during the first 2 sets and then seriously start to play after that. it's a classic Moya/Correjta/Dirtballer strategy bec these guys whey can stay out there all day. sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. you have to be very fit to pull it off. it didn't work for Canas today.

Dirk: i always look forward to the excellence of Federer. now that's what i call tennis!

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

Puppydog can't resist starting a thread with Andy's name in it.

Andy didn't really give Canas much of a chance to play today. I think Canas is capable of doing better against Andy on hardcourt too, but Andy was playing too well, and Canas isn't completely back to his pre-injury form.

Andy.

I'm all for easy wins for him.

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

I'm all for matches where he has triple winners to errors and serves 71%. Yea that works for me. Oh and almost 70% of net points too I can live with that

And the obsession continues

When was the last time Andy let go of a 2 sets to love lead, if you think that his opponents should sit on their ass for that part and step it up in the 3rd? it's never happened.

Re: Roddick vs. Canas

Canas, it's safe to say, was woeful today.
