They booed him every time he won a single point in the 2nd set. While I'm a Roddick fan, I honestly didn't like that at all.

Are you sure they weren't yelling Lu's name? That's what it sounded like to me.

Re: IW R2: Roddick def. Lu 6-4 6-4

yeah, that was not really nice, Lu was doing actually quite well and they shouldn't have booed him

I definitely heard a BOOOOO when he hit the FH to save the first MP

I'm a Roddick fan as well and that crowd was just appalling. Way to live up to stereotypes asshole crowd.

They were probabl;y yelling out "Lu", didn't watch mcuh of the match so can't tell but that's more likely. it's like for Goosen on the PGA Tour they all well out "Goose" and it soudns like "boo".

Re: IW R2: Roddick def. Lu 6-4 6-4

Lu didn't seem flattered when he left, though. And what crowd would go Luuuuuuuuuuuu xD I guess a drunk America crowd

But I had the volume up high. It sounded like boos.
