Queen's 2R: Roger-Vasselin dismisses Roddick 6-4 4-6 7-5 (Saves 1 MP)

Doud

Roddick had a MP at *4-5, then was broken to 15. Edouard also served very poorly in the final game. It was the perfect chance for Edouard to choke as per usual, but he didn't

Roddick was pretty terrible from the baseline, to be honest. Very weak backhands and some awkward forehand mishits too, towards the end. He should call it a career soon.

Queens R2: Roger-Vasselin def. Roddick 6-4 4-6 7-5

Great win for ERV. Didn't choke like usual. A-Rod had tons of chances in the third set, two BPs at 2-*1, 30-0 on return at 4-3, MP at 5-4 on return. ERV served well when it mattered and played a strong game to break A-Rod at 5 all in the third, hitting a great BH DTL for 30-0 and hitting offensive forehands to break. ERV was the better player from the baseline and hit some awesome volleys, great to see him come through.

Also nice to see a traditionally played grass court match, slicing and dicing, net play. Very nice match, but A-Rod falls further.

Good god. Roddick sucks badly. He made Roddick look like a top 300 player. Well, Roddick is escaping the grounds ... lol

Edouard is a very crafty player on grass. I personally think it's the surface that suits his game well, as he likes to mix it up and go to the net.

Needless to say Roddick at his prime would have won. But there are worse players to lose to on grass than ERV.

ERV takes it, I guess Roddick ain't ready yet and his Wimby will be short lived this time.

Good grass court tennis in this match. Especially from Roger-Vasselin.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

ERV: "I tried to be calm, but I was very nervous"

"I think this is my best win on grass. Even my best win at all."

Also said that Mahut gave him some advice.

I didn't say he sucks. I am saying Roddick is a former Wimbledon finalist. Come on. No way to lose like that... especially in his last year. Oh well.
