Queen's: Roddick blows Gonzo away 6-4, 6-3

Gonzo kept pace for the first 8 games, but then he missed some 1st serves and it was lights out. When Roddick gets in that type of serving rhythm, the only player that can beat his is Federer who somehow finds a way to get 1st serves back and distrupt Roddick's mojo.

Roddick served at almost 80%, Gonzo could barely win a point on Roddick's serve, and struggled on his own second serve.

Vintage power tennis from Roddick. This is like a replay of dozens of matches from the past on grass for him.

Now it's his whipping boy Blake who is creeping up on the #1 American spot.

I'd like to see James finally get a win over Andy, but the way Andy was playing today, it's hard to see James winning.

It's only the 2nd semifinal for Andy of the year!

Andy at least someone in top 5 is happy with the green stuff. He was on fire with his serve, more impressive than watchable, grass tennis in a nutshell.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.

He would've needed the power of 1,000 blogs to have a chance today.
Too bad he went up against Roddick today. I would like his chances against just about everyone else in the draw.

I was very impressed with Andy today, it was a good win and hopefully he'll take a lot of confidence from it! Shame Gonzalez couldn't play his best though. The semi tomorrow should be a good match.

Re: Queen's: Roddick blows Gonzo away 6-4, 6-3

What is it about Gonzo that brings out the best in Andy? That was vintage Roddick again

All hail Feña, the unofficial keeper of Andy's missing mojo



New rule: Nobody is allowed to diss the Gonzo

"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."

Very good win from Roddick, but unbearably unwatchable. It was effective, at least.
