Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

I'd love to see Pim Pim play Andy too.

Andy has played big servers before and done just fine, thank you very much.

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

Rumour has it that Robredo may actually be able to hold a few service games in this one, but it will be a formality nonetheless. An exhibition for just how superior Roddick is to Robredo.

Yes, a Johansson-Roddick quarter-final would be great. If both play to their optimum level, it will prove to be a highlight of the tournament.

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

I see that this thread couldn't go 6 posts without a few idiotic comments.

Erm, anyways.

Yes, Robredo will lose. The good news for him is, for once, he can't possibly do any worse than Roddick's last three opponents. And.. at least he'll be on my TV. Too bad Roddick is unattractive and will even things out

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Still interesting to see how much resistance Tommy can/will put up.

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

I knew Roddick had beaten Robredo before, but I had no idea he was 6-0 against him and has beaten him on every tennis surface without losing a set.

Robredo is a good player, not that Roddick could get props from some on this board, even from those that praise Robredo usually to the high heavens heh.

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

Unfortunetely, Robredo will lose. I think he's a good player and has chances to advance in the tournment, but not really through Roddick. As said, maybe he'll surprise us and show some resistance.

PS - I don't think it only takes fast serves to get Roddick into some trouble, but Johansson x Roddick should be fun, exactly what Roddick's last games were not - they were too easy. C'mon, what's exciting about winning a game in straight aces?

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

God, you can't stay out of a Roddick thread for 10 seconds can you?

Go back and check some of the Robredo threads, also check out Nalbandian's head to head against Roddick.

Robredo's problem is that he has no real weapon to hurt Andy. His serve isn't powerful enough to bother Andy's average return game, but his return game isn't powerful enough to bother Andy's service games either. He doesn't particularly come to net, which can bother Andy, and he's not a good enough defender like a Hewitt to force Andy into rallies and consequently, into errors. If you look at their games, Tommy's just doesn't match up well to Andy's at all, irrespective of surface.

If Andy's hitting 49 winners to 19 errors off someone as good at defending and rallying as Canas, I don't think it looks too good for Tommy this time around either. Not to mention all the intangibles like the setting, atmosphere, and crowd all heavily favor him too. And Tommy doesn't really strike me as the "rise to the occasion and play really loosely because of it" type of guy.

Re: Roddick d. Robredo w.o

Seeing as most of the threads are Roddick threads, it's awfully hard to stay out of them.

We're patiently waiting for you to come up with somethign intelligent, Colesberg. I guess that will happen on the same day that Tangerine does.

I lack direction.
