Re: WWW:RG R1:Roddick vs. Nieminen

They have NEVER played, and been around for so long!

Andy probably has too much firepower for Jarkko but it could get interesting if Jarkko is consistent enough and takes advantage of his opportunities. But I really can't see Andy losing this match, so I'll say Roddick in 3 or 4 sets.

Nah. Andy will win in 3. Andy is actually quite OK on clay with his serve. He beats lots of guys who are not spanish

nieminem is good clay courter, and moves really well.. if it wasn't for roddicks serve im sure he'd win this, but it will probably be roddick in 4.

That is very surprising that they've never met. I'll take Roddick in three, with one of the sets being relatively close.

Nemo's serve is just too bad.

Willing to bet all my cash on Roddick, even though the chances he'll tank this match are relatively high.

He can tank, and would still likely be too good for Jarkko. It would take an awful performance from Andy and a very high level performance from Jarkko to see an upset.

Re: WWW:RG R1:Roddick vs. Nieminen

I just wish I were as confident as you guys. I hope Andy's lack of match readiness doesn't impair him too much
