Re: The OAF is back! Marat loses to Dent.

I don't think Marat oafed. He was playing poorly. He couldn't play through it to get a win. Taylor played a fabulous serve and volley match. He was moving well, sticking his volleys, and getting enough serves in play to make it happen. The weight loss really paid off and Taylor looked great! Congratulations, Taylor!

I'm proud of Marat. He doesn't usually do well in these tournaments. He did his best and took his loss without giving up. He's my guy. So,

GO MARAT!!

Dent volleyed really well today and won 100% of the points from his first serve in the second set. Safin, on the other hand, didn't serve well at all and made too many UEs. He should really have more friendly practice sessions with serve and volley players.

Taylor on my hate list NOW. Well, not really, but I got so mad at this match. Marat was playing HORRIBLE, JUST HORRIBLE! Did you guys see his volleys? I don't think he made any point out of 20 attempts.

I don't think Marat has a problem to deal with serve-volleyer. His loss is due to his poor play: incredibly horrible serve, forehand and volley . Dent played ok but not exceptionally well. It's Marat who lost it but he has never done well in this tournament .

In fact I didn't expect him to win at all and I don't think he will do well before RG .

As always, mental toughness was lacking in this match though he did not tank it.

Re: The OAF is back! Marat loses to Dent.

Dent played well.

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)

Re: The OAF is back! Marat loses to Dent.

Dent volleyed so well tonight, he had his game face on for once and didn't melt. Huge win for him to take down the AO champion. I just hope he can continue to play well and finally get a win over Canas.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
