Can anyone stop an Agassi v Roddick final in Washington?

Looking at the draw, not many players stand in Andy and Andre's path to the semifinals.....Maybe Henman can give Roddick trouble if he's on his game, and if Kiefer comes around, he can trouble Agassi.

But if both Andy and Andre play with the form they always show in the American Hardcourt Season, they have a fairly clear path to the finals in DC, and it should be a great match!

What does everyone think? I'd love to see a rematch of their showdown in Cincy last year....

Their matches are always great, looking forward to see it
But there is Max Mrynyi in Andy's draw so that can turn out to be tough.

There an only be One Nadal

Andy's brain might stop it.

If Henman could magically rediscover the form of two years ago he'd have a decent shot here. I'd love to see TF being forced to endure (his words) another Henman-Gonzalez final, but Fena isn't here this time.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Robby Ginepri will hunt the duck in straight sets.

Grosjean could possibly challenge Agassi 3-4 in head to heads and won last meeting (Although that was on Clay). Apart from Grosjean, Agassi has a pretty good draw.

Regarding Roddick, I think that Chela could test him he has won against Roddick on hard courts a few years ago. Henman, if fit and playing well could give Roddick a battle also. Ginepri and Mirnyi also could be hard for Roddick is playing any of them.

Mello.

Seriously - Henman, Grosjean, Myrni and Hrbaty seem the possible candidates to upset this possible match-up.

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Re: Can anyone stop an Agassi v Roddick final in Washington?

Considering Andy's form as of late and that he lost to someone after having 3 MPs that he had never ever lost to before, I'd say anyone in the top half of the draw can stop an Agassi-Roddick final

Unfortunately.

Will be keeping my fingers crossed, though. It's always fun to watch a Roddick-Agassi match.

Noone will stop an Andre-Roddick final here.

OT - So does this mean he's not playing in the Canada Masters?

Re: Can anyone stop an Agassi v Roddick final in Washington?

Henman, if he can find some form, can beat Roddick for sure. The way the Duck performed in Indy also suggests he won't make the final here. Even an in-form Rusedski could test him.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: Can anyone stop an Agassi v Roddick final in Washington?

If Andre were 25 and not 35, I would agree...but I think that it's optimistic to believe that AA will play back to back days (Thursday -Sunday) in LA...travel cross country and with a couple of days rest (probably won't play again until Wednesday) play another long set of matches back to back to back to back...

If SFX, AA's management company, didn't own the tournament, I think that AA might not even go to Washington...

It could happen that AA will make another final in DC...Andre has made a habit of surprising us all at various times in the last 19 seasons...but, IMO, worry if you have tickets for the final weekend in Washington and you plan to see AA.

Re: Can anyone stop an Agassi v Roddick final in Washington?

I am not so sure about Roddick. A player like Mirnyi or Henman could beat him, especially if he plays as bad as in Indy. With Andre, it depends on how he feels after 5 matches in LA. If he´s tired, I wouldn´t count on it that he will reach the final.
