Re: Atlanta SF: Roddick def. Isner 6-4 6-7(5) 6-4

Roddick was losing his head in the last set when he couldn't break Isner after having 4 BPs but eventually he got it done. He threw his racquet at the net when he missed a 2nd serve return

But pretty good stuff for Dick, he will have good chances against Muller.

And well what to say about Isner? He served well

That will be on his grave stone.

What a match

It showed what American hardcourt is all about. Good serving, good excitement, good crowds.

Hey, I heard some NFL teams need a quarterback, Andy should try out.

This match had everything. Poor play, awesome play, foot faults, over-rules, drama. As advertised.

Won't be a gimme against muller but andy should win it.

Re: Atlanta SF: Roddick def. Isner 6-4 6-7(5) 6-4

I didn't see the first set but second and third were wildly entertaining (and I don't particularly like bomb-fests). I'd have been ticked if I'd lost a set after only losing four points on my own serve like Andy did.

Crappy foot-fault call (I didn't notice any TV-replay to confirm or deny) in the Isner service game prior to his final one. But Andy should have gotten a warning for the racquet toss. Guess the chair was giving a little leeway since John took too long to change his socks. LOL. Stupid TV though, putting a clock on that adventure. Plenty of other guys on tour waste way more than that (over the course of the match) just preparing to serve.

Still, I thought both guys served well, Roddick had just a bit better groundies and net play. Am looking forward to seeing the two of them in doubs at the Olympics.

I love my girls.

Isner's outrageous 26 aces couldn't stop the grinding Ducky machine.

Win the title, Andy.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Good for Andy. Hope he takes the title. But what he really needs to do is go get a medal. Any type will do.
