Who's Your Daddy, Andy?

I see some black Converse sneakers screaching out the back door of the West Side Tennis Club.

I wonder if Roddick jogged around the stadium with them on after losing. Ya know that lil pattern of trotting around to show the world that he's got plenty of gas left in the tank? (Not that he needs it, the season is over for him.)

But then again, it's not all about brute force is it?

I know, I know....... He probably got a bunch of bad calls today. All those balls from Hewitt were at least 4 inches out.

And I'm 4 inches above ground level in celebration.

Re: Who's Your Daddy, Andy?

He complained about Hewitt's "Coooome Ons!" I think, but that's it.

But yeah, Lleyton and (even more so) Roger own the Duck.

Re: Who's Your Daddy, Andy?

I haven't watched the match yet but he's always got something to complain about when he doesn't win.

Maybe it was the bbq ribs he ate last night.

And here I was thinking....Roddick compliments his opponents. Am I wrong? Is that what the comment duck sentiment is? Somebody correct me here if I'm wrong.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Not really about Lleyton. They've only played twice this year and they split their meetings. The other 3 meetings came when Roddick was still developing. I wouldn't say Hewitt owns Roddick.

As for Roger, Federer owns everyone...

Re: Who's Your Daddy, Andy?

Hweitt is 4-1 lifetime against the Duck. that means he OWNS him IMO.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Pumped up
Fist-pumping Hewitt cruises past Roddick into Masters Cup final


HOUSTON (Reuters) -- A fired-up Lleyton Hewitt defused hard-hitting Andy Roddick 6-3 6-2 on Saturday, scurrying into the final of the Masters Cup for the third time in four years.

Back at his feistiest and fist-pumping best, the Adelaide fighter took the best shots the big-serving American could offer and gave back better to finish off the Texan in just 58 minutes.

"As soon as the bell rang I was up for it, ready to play my best tennis," said Hewitt, who committed six unforced errors in the entire game. "I just felt like I was on his serve right from the start and made it hard for him to dictate play."

Grey skies and threatening weather at the Westside Tennis Club were brightened by two mouth-watering semi-finals featuring the cream of the new generation -- all 24 or younger, all current or former-world number ones and all with grand slam titles on their resumes.

The first semi-final looked to be an intriguing clash pitting the sport's heaviest-hitter against its consummate counter-puncher.

Roddick, who early in the tournament became just the third player to serve more than 1,000 aces in the season, fired seven missiles past Hewitt in the opening set.

But a relentless Hewitt, Masters champion in 2001 and 2002, would not be intimidated, weathering the assault and patiently waiting his chances.

The first would come at 3-3, Hewitt lofting a pinpoint lob over a charging Roddick to get the break and go up 4-3.

When Hewitt held serve to take the opening set, Roddick slammed his racket onto the court in frustration.

The hometown crowd rallied around their fellow Texan in the second set but Roddick would never come close to matching the intensity of his inspired opponent.

When Hewitt broke to go up 3-2 it sucked any remaining energy from Roddick, the Australian storming through the final five games by winning 20 consecutive points.

"Plain and simple, I didn't play well and he took his chances when he had them," said Roddick. "I didn't step up.

"You have to make things happen against Lleyton to beat him and I didn't do that today. Not a lot went right."

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)
