Great match from Roddick.Seems like the farewell inspired him.Served very good,was pretty aggressive (),went to the net a lot which was a great tactic against Tomug.
Tomug needs to start "eating grass" if he wants to become a player he was predicted to be.

I can see the future with crystal clarity. Roddick goes nuts and beats Djokovic in the quarterfinals then handles Isner in the semifinals. In the final Roddick faces Federer who comes back from a set down to win a fifth set tiebreaker at 18. In the interview after the match Roddick is hilarious and has everyone rolling on the floor!

good effort by roddick though. for being quite a limited player, he did hit some decent volleys out there.
a limited player haha, yeah sure, more like one of the most talented players of the 2000s you clown.

No wonder Rusty wants nothing to do with this kid. What a shiteous attitude.

Sébastien Grosjean is alive and well and living in Boca.

Andy Murray . Ryan Harrison . Kei Nishikori

Can't teach heart, I'm afraid.

Tomic was selling his lack of competitive spirit as sprezzatura for quite long now and many bought into it.
There is still a chance for him as he is fairly young but he has to bite the bullet, show desire and play with conviction.

Sorry but no. He wouldn't be able to make so many net approaches against a better player, and would make it much harder for him to win a point.

I agree that as a fan I will be content if he just gives it his all and plays smartly and agressively like he did today. but I think the other poster had a point. the form he had in this match was the likes that it takes to win the title. if he maintains a similar style and gameplan anything is possible, the sky is the limit. still bummed about this retirement deal though, but a good run here would sort of soften the blow

Well if Roddick gets to the semis it will mean he defeated Djokovic.

Hmm. I think people are going a little overboard with Roddick here. Yes, he played well - some decent volleying, consistent serving, penetrative forehands. But Tomic did totally give up in the third.

Has he got a chance of winning the tournament if he plays to the same level? No. He'll need to play better than this to trouble the favourites. Has he got a chance of beating Djokovic, if he gets far enough? Doubtful.

Keep going

Roddick

one more match is better than no more match

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

Tomug should get better professional help, professional coaching.

It is pathetic that he has the talent but waste it with his poor attitude.
