Indian Wells R3: Berdych def. Roddick 6-3 4-6 6-2

Berdych not at his best, but he didn't need to be to get the win in this. Roddick was really moving very poorly in the 3rd.

In the 1st set Roddick decided to have a bitch at the umpire for not allowing him to challenge a call. The hand gesture wasn't very clear from Roddick that he wanted to challenge, but it was a bit early for him to have the umpire interaction.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Berdych was awful, I can't believe he let Roddick back into that second set.

A-Rod is a fighter, but he's SUCH a hack these days. It's been a pretty dramatic fall of form from A-Rod the past couple of seasons. It's hard to know where he goes from here. His game is evaporating and his body is giving out on him.

Tomas had lapses as he usually does, but when he played well, he was really good. Patchy tennis, but he did serve well most of the match and moved well throughout. Now the rematch vs Almagro, should be interesting!

Berdych's forehand was unreal the whole match.

Second half of second set was awesome by Roddick, best set of tennis he's played in absolute ages, shame he kind of sucked in the other 2 sets though.

Re: Indian Wells R3: Berdych def. Roddick 6-3 4-6 6-2

Roddick's forehand 5 meters behind the tram-lines in the opening point of the last game

Perhaps Roddick will be remembered as the most primitive former No. 1, tennis-wise of course... albeit he is nowhere near to be called "intellectual". First he lost his forehand, later on the serve (and hair), without two basic weapons he lost amazing self-confidence as well. And you've got a picture of a pretty average tennis player, these scorelines of the last 12 months say for themselves:

Simon 3-6 3-6
Murray 3-6 1-6
Nadal 2-6 1-6 3-6
Federer 3-6 2-6
Murray 2-6 2-6
Berdych 3-6 6-4 2-6

That's what you get when you being Roddick win 1 out of 4 points directly after the serve in contrary to a 3/4 ratio in his golden age

Berdych is returning better.

Trolling is defined by Herring as baiting and luring others into pointless and time-consuming discussions.

4 criteria of trolls:

1. Appearance of outward sincerity.
2. Posts designed to incite anger or "flames"
3. Posts designed to waste everybody's time with useless argument
4. Desperate desire for attention, any attention at all

Recognize them, don't engage and put 'em on your ignore list where they belong. Feed a troll and you're just encouraging their attention-seeking.

Berdych should have crushed him easier, but Super Saiyan went for a walk about in the middle, and Roddick looked like Roddick of yore for a few games in that second set.
