Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards. Do try and understand the difference (TARDS)! Don't get me started on Choke-ovic though. Him I do despise. And his TARDS are the lowest of the low .

Yeah, Roddick's draw has completely opened up. If Roddick doesn't make the final... LOL

Re: Wimby QF and Beyond - Predictions

yup there's really no one who should seriously threaten Roddick left in the bottom half of the draw. I'm hoping Gasquet but it may be too soon on grass for him.

Re: Wimby QF and Beyond - Predictions

Other than Roddick I cant predict with certainty anyone else . I'm hoping that Fed will join him in the final but his draw has a lot of tough players so its not a sure prediction.

Re: Wimby QF and Beyond - Predictions

I'm not all that impressed with Gasquet's play on grass. I don't see him taking a set off of Roddick should they meet. Roddick and Fed in finals.

Yes, winning a title on grass over Mirnyi losing only 5 games is not impressive at all.

And Roddick beating an Italian well out of the top 100 in 5 tight sets just swells me with confidence.

How so? Everything in his game suggests that he should be really good on grass. Good serve, good FH, great BH, good volleys, good movement, excellent shotmaking ability. He may not make it to a SF with Roddick but his game HAS been impressive.

M'kay, a great overall game but I don't it's to the point yet where he can take out someone like Roddick, Ancic or Federer on the lawns of Wimbledon. Not this year anyhow.

All of Andy's matches are tight; he refuses to even try on return games unless he's already been broken. However, this "Italian well out of the top 100" was by far going for broke on just about everything in that third set especially and it was paying off when it most counted. Those kind of shots could have taken a set from anyone.

I'm not taking anything away from Gasquet -- a great player, just not sure if he's ready to compete with the big big grass boys.

Gasquet has the game to win on grass, but lack of experience will hurt him if he gets into the 2nd week.

I have to give credit to Bracciali though; he played really well.
