gonzalez is braindead

talented yes, but have never seen anyone play like such an idiot on a tennis court. at any level.!! the guy has no idea how to build a point or what shot to play. he has the tennis sense of a monkey!! and a stupid monkey at that. he is gifting roddick this match at the moment....painful to watch

Re: gonzalez is braindead

Yeh, I've always wondered what a player like him would do if he had someone like Brad Gilbert or Lungdren to teach him about playing the right shots and playing smart tennis. It's kinda hard to believe that someone who plays w/o any thought has made it so far.

Re: gonzalez is braindead

its the way he plays, he wouldn't be the same player if he didn't play like this. and there's absolutely no stopping roddick when he's serving at 84% first serves in, not even fed could deal with this i'd suggest

i agree. he could be so much better if he had the sense most people are born with. his play is shocking at times for a top pro. people moan about hewitt roddick and coria (why i have never understood), but watch this crap and justify it to people who have paid and travelled to watch him. at least the other 3 i mentioned always give their best. if i was fernando's coach i would quit!!

fed has always dealt with roddick...except on one occasion! and he would again because he is the other end of the spectrum from the dumbass gonzalez. roger knows how to play the game!

there's not much you can do when roddick serves like that. no doubt about it roger would get more balls back in play than gonzo did but andy is still gonna hold serve 98% of the time. also, its likely the pressure of federer at the other end of the court would bring down andy's 1st serve %. it'll be interesting if they meet in the final, andy's gotta win sometime

Re: gonzalez is braindead

Absolutely agree- all brawn and no brains

It was hilarious listening to the commentating on ESPN- they didn't cut away to commercials and PMac and Cliff were ordering sandwiches and chewing loudly over the mic. At one point PMac said to Cliff "I am going to chew this piece of gum maybe it will stop me from eating" To which Cliff responded "I doubt it".

After the match they interviewed Roddick who sat with headphones and said "I fell on my ass- ass on pavement" this regarding a point where he lost his footing and just fell like a brick. And PMac goes to Cliff "you know you don't have to eat when you interview Andy" and he asks Andy wether it was bothering him. So Andy says "yes, I know you are eating I can hear you chewing". To which Cliff respnded by yawning loudly. Charming

You'd think they would cut away to a commercial break while stuffing their faces

I think Fed dealt with it at Wimbledon.
