Boy, it sure doesn't take long for the haters to show up with their bitter venom.
Another three sets with Carlos, another win. Well done.
He's looking like his old self out there: confident and in control. We like to see that.
So that's two dragons he's slayed this week: Gonzales (Olympics loss) and Moya (DC loss). Now comes the big Aussie dragon.
Andy simply must keep his head on straight this time and not let bad calls or whatever unnerve him. He can beat Lleyton. Has done it before. Anyhoo...
The turning point, I think, came in the first set when Andy got hooked on a bad call and lost the TB because of it. Normally when Andy gets a bad call like that he goes absolutely berserk and chews the ump out throughout the entire match, the changeovers, and even as he's leaving the court, whether he wins the match or not.
He didn't do that this time. For once he actually put the bad call behind him, let the anger go and stayed focused on winning the next two sets. This is excellent improvement for him and very bad news for his opponents.
Lord Carlos was very good in first two sets (*sprinkles the fairy dust*) then kind of melted as Andy got into the zone in the third. A typical Roddick/Moya match, I guess.
Well done again, Andy. Keep your head on straight, stay aggressive, and you will win again.
