Roddick DESTROYS Schalken 6-1 6-2 6-3!

Ho-hum, another win for Andy, another clean miss from the Duck hunters.

"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."

Haha but, for some reason 85% of this forum still thinks he is overated.

I mean what does he have to do to prove it to these people on this forum??

Not loose a point for a whole tourny? Beat Fed 6-0, 6-0, 6-0? Then maybe those people will be like "Roddick yea, he's alright"

You know, the sad thing is, if Roddick actually wins AO, 85% of the people here would STILL think he was "overrated".

Schalken is never going to bother the top players.

Next match is fascinating

Re: Roddick DESTROYS Schalken 6-1 6-2 6-3!

Boring. The result, and most of the posts in this thread. We get it. Some people think he's overrated, and that's ridiculous. Agreed. Yawn.

He hasn't been tested. It will be interesting to see if Safin can trouble him. I doubt Safin will win, though.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Roddick DESTROYS Schalken 6-1 6-2 6-3!

Perhaps Safine will finally be the first real test Andy will have this tournament. I am getting worried that Andy hasn't been tested enough.

Either way, Safin is going down.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh.

Re: Roddick DESTROYS Schalken 6-1 6-2 6-3!

I never like to see a player I like beaten badly so...

But Andy.

And GOOD LUCK against Safin.

I'm looking forward to that match. I think it could go either way.

Re: Re: Roddick DESTROYS Schalken 6-1 6-2 6-3!

Yes... it's safe to say that I never thought Schalken had much of a hope in this match, and the extent of the scoreline just shows how much Roddick has improved his returns to be able to break twice in every set: as easy as 1, 2, 3, you might say... I do note with some satisfaction that Schalken not only held serve twice as many times as Dent but kept Roddick on court a whole seven minutes longer. Small mercies, you know, small mercies.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

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.
