Yea, well you think he would have experience with all those hot dogs and pizzas he stuffs down there, ya know, he could avoid a choke...but hey...only Taylor knows why this loss will be a tough one to swallow...hahahaha..

Re: For someone who eats alot, Dent is a really good choker

Dent should kick himself over this one: 0/11 in break points converted (including 0/8 in the final set). Roddick saved 1 (or 2?) with aces, but Dent made silly errors on nearly every other break point. It was like Groundhog Day watching the match: Dent winner at deuce to reach break point, Dent error (more often than not into the net) on break point.

Yeah, usually it will be Roddick hitting aces and service winners on BP's but this time it was Dent making a lot of errors. Tough way to lose it.

Re: For someone who eats alot, Dent is a really good choker

I saw his choking potential almost two years ago and he never proved me wrong.

You probably have no idea who the guy in my avatar is.

I'm sure Roddick eats just as much as Dent (perhaps even more), but he probably also has a higher metabolism, helped by genetics...

Taylor is known in the tennis world to have a terrible diet, and even he himself admits it. Genetics don't account for an elite tennis player having a big gut. Have you seen his parents? They were both tennis players and they aren't fatties.

Perhaps his parents are heterozygous with the recessive Gut Growth gene.

lol...AND that still doesn't mean Roddick doesn't eat as much as Dent...I'm sure Roddick has a higher metabolism than he does...Some people can eat whatever they want at 23 and not gain anything...
