Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

Good match. Andy beat Hewitt the last time they played at Queens, they have always had good matches against one another but, Hewitt likely will not beat Roddick if he does I don't like his chances against Federer or even Safin in the final...

Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

I'd like Lleyton to win but it will be tough

Both these are probably praying Federer loses in the semis

Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

They each have their own assets which pretty much neutralize each other's strengths. You know Andy will be sending down the howitzers and try to blow Hewitt off the court and that Hewitt will try to get absolutely everything back and try to attack when he can find openings to pressure Andy. It is a question of who will be more persistent. They are both stubborn competitors but in this regard I give Hewitt the slight edge.

This should be a vey absorbing match.

Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

Can't wait to see this one and I think it's a toss up. What I do know is that Andy will have to play a lot better than what he showed today against Coria. Too many missed break point opportunities and too sloppy. I'd be happy with a win from either though. But whoever wins, please make it a good match against Fed.

You are all assuming Federer will make it through to the final. Whoever he plays in the semi will be tough- if it is Safin with his (allegedly) new-found temperament and his form, and with Lundgren by his side who knows Federer very well, it could be quite a tussle. If it is Henman- he is always a potential threat to Roger even on a slow hardcourt. Just look at their H2H. I for one am not taking anything for granted.

Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

I am 100% backing Hewitt but i think Roddick will prevail if he keeps his very good round robin level.
As Rone said, Fed's semi should be very tough especially if its against Marat.

The 4 best players of the world in semis would be good with two great match-ups (if Marat is on) but all i want is a godlike Fed to show once more these three who the only master is...

Left-handedness is more than just a physical specialization. It's a state of mind.

Re: one semifinal already set: Hewitt/Roddick

I think Roddick is the favorite, but I sure hope Lleyton wins it and he definitely has his chances!

GOOOOOO LLEY!!!
