Roddick delight - Karlovic loses to Bracciali in five sets

Bracciali managed to break Karlovic only once...but that was enough.

12-10 in the fifth set

Never seen Bracciali play but judging by his recent form I can't say Roddick will be delighted to play him.

I'm pleased Roddick won't have to face the imposing Karlovic in the second round.

Egalite!

Re: Roddick delight - Karlovic loses to Bracciali in five sets

Roddick is having an absolutely brilliant day

his likely matchup with Soderling in R3 may be gone, Soderling down 2set-1

and then a possible R4 against Ljubicic is out, Malisse is also on his way out (not that he could do anything to Andy anyways)

Looks like a likely R4 for Roddick may now be Coria if he keeps playing well, and even then that shouldnt be a problem for him at all

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

...better to reign in hell than serve in heaven...

Re: Roddick delight - Karlovic loses to Bracciali in five sets

Bracciali seems to do well against big serves, beat greg and ivo at surbiton too. So i am curious to see how he will do against roddick.

Yea it looks like the Draw is clearing out for Andy, Auscon. All we need now is for Roger to lose and we can break out the engraving tools for the trophy.

Re: Roddick delight - Karlovic loses to Bracciali in five sets

No reason for Andy not to march is way to the quarters or semis. And while I don't think there's anyone left in his draw that he shouldn't be able to beat on any given day, Andy's been losing his concentration out of nowher elately. Also, I'm curious about a Federer Roddick match-up. Both sides of the draw are open.

Should Federer lose somehow (hey, we all have bad days ) on the way to the finals, there's absolutely no reason for Roddick not to prevail as the 2005 champ. But then again, people here would just call it a fluke if Fed is out.

Bracciali retired in qualifying, 'nuff said.

I feel bad for Ivo, his best chance to go far in a big tournament

Andy knows that his mother always told him to eat his Bracciali otherwise he couldn't get desert.
