Cool Lyon SF: Santoro vs Roddick - who will win?

Here's an interesting match-up we haven't seen in quite a while: The Magician vs .... Mojo man

Their last match was in 2000, on the hardcourts in Washington. Andy won 4-6 6-3 6-3.

How dangerous will Fabrice be to Andy? I hope it doesn't happen but do you think this will be the match where Andy, the last seed and the last non-French player, is sent packing?

I like Fabrice but Andy reallyreallyreally needs to win this title.

"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."

Re: Lyon SF: Santoro vs Roddick - who will win?

If Santoro can take Andy to three on a hardcourt - he may be able to do more on this indoor court. Granted, it was in 2000, but Andy's playing.. not so well, to put it nicely. The crowd will be behind Santoro and he has disposed of his previous opponents rather easily. I still think Andy will win - but it won't be simple. Roddick will have to be patient.

Re: Lyon SF: Santoro vs Roddick - who will win?

Hmmmmmmm.........honestly Roddick is not the player I would have liked to see Fabrice play in his 1st semi final in over 2 years but I still think he has a chance. Fabrice will put much more pressure on Andy's service games than his three previous opponents. Whether it will be enough and whether he will be able to maintain his own serve against Andy I'm not sure. But I really hope Fabrice can find a way to win this.

I support......

Re: Lyon SF: Santoro vs Roddick - who will win?

My pick is Roddick even his recent performance is not good and his indoor record is not so impressive. Don't ask why!!!

Excuses even before matches stard, gotta love them .

My prediction: Roddick def. Santoro 7-5 6-4. Might go to three sets easily, but I think Andy won't let it go to 3 sets. andy will have time to work out some points and simply not be overpowered by Fabrice so he won't be rushed. he will, however, be slowed down by the annoying game Santoro plays but I think andy will eventually become comfortable with it somewhat and get the breaks when he needs them. I doubt his serve will be broken, Fabrice isn't a huge returner anyways and Roddick's serve seems to be clicking this week.

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
