Roland Garros R1: Mahut def. [26] Roddick 6-3 6-3 4-6 6-2

Highly unusual Roddick didn't make the second week in Paris. He can still make Charles de Gaulle for the flight tonight back to the US.

Mahut took advantage of the draw, didn't look close to losing this match to the clay clown.

“ 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".

Roland Garros R1: Mahut def. [26] Roddick 6-3 6-3 4-6 6-2

Just not a good enough performance from A-Rod. What a way for Mahut to end it, with a BH DTL return winner. A-Rod broken seven times in the match. Nicolas was inconsistent but when he was on, he was the clear better player, dominant in rallies, hit several clean winners, with good volleying and net approaches. Roddick started showing some spirit from the middle of the third set to the start of the fourth, getting a break lead to start set four, but lost six of the last seven games.

A-Rod didn't show a ton of fight at the end, and the first couple of sets, this clay season could have been used for him to gain a rhythm with his game, but he didn't show any commitment this clay season. Where he goes from here is up in the air. What's clear is being passive is not going to get him anywhere on any surface.

Have to wonder if Andy is completely healthy.

Least upsetty upset ever.

For Roddick it doesn't matter what happens here. The season re-starts at Queens, basically. This was just match practice.

10 RG's.
5 first round losses.

Not a shock.

Didn't love his 'tude throwing 3 rackets into the crowd.

Tipsarevic. Nadal. Gasquet.
Sprem. Lisicki. Ivanovic.

Good hustle from Roddick to take a set off an established clay player like Mahut.

Roddick do yourself a huge favor and pullout of Wimbledon and don't comeback until after the Olympics.You are fat,you are slow

Same old story with Andy, he looked like he actually gave a crap when he broke serve in the 4th but that went out the window pretty quickly.
