Roddick served some of the best percentages I've ever seen in the last two sets.

I think he might be back on track!

Yes! I am cautiously optimistic about his chances through the next few matches. He will have his hands full against a good returner.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Next time let's make it closer, Andy!

But uhhh, serving stats look good. Returning stats are obviously not high, which is obvious with the score, but did anyone watch it? How'd Andy (and Wayne for that matter) play?

Mardy Fish for president.

Very odd start to the match, Roddick getting broken early and then managing to break back quite easily, but the rest was what could have been expected. Wayno served around 34 aces, I believe, but paid dearly for double faults at 6-6 in the second set TB and 2-4 in the third, and was unable to take advantage of his one matchpoint at 9-8 on the Roddick serve.

Roddick getting good match practice and mental toughness by surviving two consecutive third-set breakers, but with a draw like Fish and Arthurs indoors, 'twas perhaps inevitable. The Andys are once again joined at the hip, they both vomit vs Pavel and they both come through tight opening rounds in Memphis.

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.

Nice one Andy

He hasn't played that many tie-breakers this year (before Memphis off course) but a lot of matches will depend on how well he deals with these situations. I hope he does a better job than last year.

Good draw for the next round. COME ON ANDY.

I fail to see how this is "nice," to be honest. Arthurs isn't exactly a top-tier player.

Re: Andy Roddick Def. Wayne Aruthers 6-7(4),7-6(9),7-6(2)

both players served really well so both players played well

Arthurs outplayed Roddick in the second even he had two bp in *3-4 and several deuces in two different games and a mp in the tiebreak (but on andys serve) and he could not take advantage

The good news is that Roddick is winning tiebreakers. The bad news is that he shouldn't be reaching tiebreakers; however, Arthurs does have a good serve and he comes in behind his serve which gives Roddick even more trouble.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

As an Andy fan, a win is a win. That's my standpoint, also that he won two consecutive tiebreaks. That's good enough for me.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

DAVIS CUP CHAMPS FOR 2007!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO USA!!!!!!!

I'm just glad he won period.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
