WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

Should be a good match, with Dolgo the up and comer and Roddick usually very strong to start the season.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

I'd like to think Dolgo will win this. These aggressive shotmakers can really hurt Roddick, but it's hard to imagine him being consistent enough especially with his returning and crazy shot selection.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

i dont see how dolgo can make any sort of impression on roddick`s serve.

roddick also has too much experience on hard courts.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

Although Dolgo is a very decent and talented player, I don't see him winning even a set against A-Rod. It should be something like 7-5 6-3.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

Someone in a dramatic 3rd set, most probably experience

voted for Dolgo in 3 though

He's one of the few to watch this year

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

Dolgo can be confusing to play, anxious to see how Roddick handles it.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

I hope Dolgopolov can send Rodmug packing, but unfortunately I think he is not experienced enough yet to score a win against a top 10 player, even a mediocre one.

Re: WWW Brisbane R2: Dolgopolov vs. Roddick

ARod in 2 unfortunately. Not yet Dolgo, not yet.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.
