Roddick hit a shot on match point that was clearly out but the challenge system was not there. Nalbandian got screwed.

Re: Ultimate question : your opinion about USO 03 semi-final

one of the biggest thefts ever, not only because off the match point, but also regarding the level of play

Re: Ultimate question : your opinion about USO 03 semi-final

what you dont mention is how much of a bitch fat dave turned into

handing the match to roddick even tho it was still his to win

he has no one to blame but himself

and if his other final appearance is anything to go by, its probably a good thing he didnt make the final

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

David was robbed.

He hasn't been the same since.

It's 7 years ago my man. I don't remember which point. Maybe point #163?

Actually it was David who hit a passing shot that smacked the line on match-point and had it called out, thus robbing him of the match... there wasn't hawk-eye back then, but CBS had several cameras positioned around the court and had been providing until this point with different angles to the shots... weirdly enough, they never showed any other angle to this match point but the one opposite to the play,even though they had a camera placed facing that line, and quickly ignored Nalby's complain... by the way he reacted, Roddick also looked to know the ball was in...

Yes. That's why I put an asterisk next to Roddick's win. He is a no slam wonder.

there was a great pressure on the USTA at that time to find the next great American champion after Agassi and Sampras, and the Press did believe Roddick was going to be a multiple Slam winner.. That year US Open schedule was ravaged by ongoing rains, and the USTA shamefully tweaked the schedule to benefit Roddick and harm his opponents... they would reserve the dry courts to Roddick's matches and even practice sessions while postponing other players' matches indefinitely, and as a result of that, Roddick had already finished his 4th round match while the Spaniards (Ferrero was considered his main opponent and the American Press had a special disgust for the so-called "claycourters" then) and South Americans were still waiting to finish their second round match... I do not think the USTA would have got away with this scheme today, but at that time, there wasn't a player that could deliver on both clay and fast courts like we have today in Nadal, and the English speaking Media had a special dislike for whomever could not perform on the US Open or Wimbledon...

Both of you are wrong:

It wasn't NEARLY as dramatic as you guys recall. Roddick responded to M.P. with an ace. At 7-7, Nalbandian's passing shot was called out by someone in the crowd, and not by the linesman - which distracted him and he lost the point.

Yes I seriously give much credit to Roddick like Federer have mentiond enough times.
Yes so far Roddick is only behind Federer, Nadal, Hewitt, and Safin achievement-wise this generation while Djokovic is above Nalbandian and yes you can also put JMDP, Murray, Davydenko above Nalbandian if you like.
Yes Nalbandian should blame himself to hell.
Yes Nalbandian has beers, racing cars, fishes, hamburgers and everything in front of him, which is why Nadal can't believe he still has no slam, also part of why, Safin, who has fucking talent and only two slams.
But no. Nalbandian is not Gaston Gaudio, who, is in super-bipolar-mode to beat Coria, which is by far the best tragedy than any single one William Shakespeare could have ever imagine in his life.
But no. I'm talking about truth.

You are incorrect about players waiting to finish their second round matches while Roddick played his fourth round match. In fact, Roddick's Friday night match with Ljubicic was the last-played second round match.
