Yeeeeessssssss! Very well done Andy JCF gave him/us quite a scare for a while there (an inhuman 100% second serve in the first set ) . But he pulled if off. I don't know how but he did It's not everyday Andy does this now. He's struggled all summer and he's struggled here but he won and deserved to win. I'm so haappeeeeee

Great fight from Andy. But he proved once again that in order to play inspired tennis, he has to act like a jerk.
I started neutral when the match started. But as soon as I saw Andy acting like a prick on court, I hoped JCF would win the match. The commentator said it best, when Andy was haggling the umpire(" You are terrible etc"), "No, Andy you are terrible". I laughed when I heard that.
With that aside, its good to see roddick playing well.
I will tell you how Roddick did it, 7 aces in the second set, including one second serve ace in the tb, he started to get confident, his first serve percentage went up, Ferrero didn't even get a sniff in the second or third set. Roddick played the best he could tonight and he's only going to get better. I want to see him go far, I think a nice victory over Hewitt and then maybe over Fed in the final could be just what the doctor ordered for Andy.
Wouldn't agree on the "outplays" part but he definitely outfought Ferrero in this match was nice to see. Sad for Ferrero but hopefully he'll retain a whole lot from this because he obviously played awesome.
