Wimbledon R1: A. Roddick (5) def. R. Ram 6-3, 6-2, 6-2

A sharp match from Andy, soundly defeating his compatriot in quick fashion.

As good as Ram's serve is, it was being read like a book by Roddick. Add to that Roddick's surprisingly good ROS, Rajeev didn't stand a chance. Roddick's backhand is also as best I think it has been; he still loops his forehands, however. I don't think Andy faced a single break point. Each set also averaged 28 minutes a piece.

Expecting Andy to reach deep here. Solidifies expected dominance for the first week of this tournament.

Didn't have to do much, Ram is in horrid form. Good start, though.

Nice play from Andy on all fronts, but let's get real here, he wasn't playing someone who could or would actually test him at all. Next match v. Llodra is where we will see what his level is against a competitive player who isn't completely overmatched.

As for Raji, he's about 2 weeks away from having his fairytale ride to the top 100 end.

It's a shame Roddick couldn't have player Federer today. He might have gotten his first grass victory over him.

Anyone with a fraction of mental fortitude would have beaten Federer today. He was /that bad/.

Well, that worked out nicely. It finished twenty minutes before the Spain match and with how quick Roddick wanted to get on with everything today, it seemed like he wanted to watch it too. He was fantastic today, everything went right and he didn't expand too much energy so a perfect start to the tournament for him.

It's pretty much a repeat of the Spring HC Season. All the seeds kept falling and Roddick somehow does alright. However, at Queens.. every seed fell lol
