Hewitt better get his ass in gear

I don't want to see another boring Federer-Roddick final where Roger kicks his ass. Roddick is even worse than last year.

Yessir, personally I thought the Roddick-Federer final was much more exciting than that Hewitt-Federer final

Totally Agree. I gained a lot of respect for Federer from that match. Andy brought his best game, and Roger............well what can I say other than it was beautiful.

Re: Hewitt better get his ass in gear

Yea so a repeat of that wouldn't be a bad thing. Hewitt was lucky to win Wimbly when he did. He's not a top grass player right now. There is about 4 or 5 other guys who have a better shot at this then he does.

Well these 2 Slams coming up are the best chance for your guy to win a Slam, as for whether I'll watch it, well I have to listen to the results of the Båstad and Gstaad qualies.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

LOL. No kidding. That Wimby final last year was LAME-O and didn't have nearly as much tension as the USO final where Roger double bageled Lleyton and was never in any danger of losing a set.

"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."

As for Hewitt, it's hard to write him off, but as for him winning it, well it's not something that I'd bet money on.

jabroni, eh?

If you put him on ice is he a zamboni

Yes yes, but it's a confidence thing for Andy more than anything.
