Cool Roddick def. Blake 7-5 6-3 wins Legg Mason title! 4th title of the year

Andy defeated his good friend James in the Legg Mason final 7-5 6-3. Well done on winning your fourth title of the year Andy. It's great to see you playing with confidence again. (144mph serves that's the way we like it) Wins the championship final with an ace, typical Roddick flare.

Great fight and welcome back to the top 100 James!

"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."

Good match. James played great, that overhead at the end was Andy's fastest serve was 146 mph. Great play by each. Congratulations Andy and James

That moaning sign coming from the booth was Patty McEnroe sperming himself.

I'd rather see someone firing less aces and making the match longer and more thrilling.
It was great to see Blake playing so well and taking it to Roddick.

Re: Roddick def. Blake 7-5 6-3 wins Legg Mason title! 4th title of the year

Outside of a couple of games (very important games!), Blake played some of the best tennis I have seen him play in a long while. I hope that his run in this tourney bodes well for him this summer.

Congrats Andy.

Was it 146? I missed that one. Anyway I'm glad he's feeling good about himself again and letting the bombs fly.

I hope James continues in this way. Although Andy owns James this match was pretty close and if James hadn't been sloppy with a few points, we'd probably be into a third set right now.

Re: Roddick def. Blake 7-5 6-3 wins Legg Mason title! 4th title of the year

Well when most of the top 10-20 aren't playing Roddick should win easily. Especially when he's not playing Fed and Hewitt where his serve isn't as dominant. Although today I thought Blake read his serve quite well, he just gifted a couple games to Roddick with some ugly forehands. It'll be interesting to see how Roddick fares next week when the cream of the crop (well, minus Fed and Safin) are back in action.

Excellent analysis, Mr. McEnroe.

Where are you and ol' "Andikins" gonna celebrate this latest victory?

I thought James played well too. Moved well, had some nice volleys. Of course Andy was able to use his serve to get him out of trouble and James doesn't have that luxury.

did you watch the match? There were some incredible points and rallies and James not only got back the 146mph serve, but won the point on a nice rally. So, I don't know what tennis you were watching

Anyway, yay Andy, please play better next time and stop missing easy balls and YAY James, on the way back where he belongs
