Come on. Why even watch a sport if you think something like that is going on? Granted, it was an EPIC choke job, but that's what it was. A choke.
You're right, of course. But it was knee-jerk reaction after I had been up like 24 hours
Good effort Denis, keep working.

I don't know if this result is bad for Roddick (the scoreline) or Kudla (losing to Roddick).

Too bad Kudla didn't win. That would've hammered a massive nail into Roddick's career's coffin.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 575-167...
TITLES: 36 and counting...

Sort of like all thoses losses to Nadal, Federer and Djokovic in the grandslams for Murray.

Also - no...losing in the 2nd round of a 250 tournament isn't going to hammer any nails into anyone's metaphorical career coffin...especially not after a long layoff due to injury and ESPECIALLY not when the loss only would have been because that player rolled his ankle.

Sorry haters, Roddick still has some tennis to play...he proved that at the USO and he'll prove it again.

Yeah, kinda, except the players you listed there are NADAL, DJOKOVIC AND FEDERER, not Denis fucking Kudla.

Roddick is falling hard and fast. His retirement should be fairly close.

Also, "all of thoses loses"? Really?
