Roddick dt. Pless 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3

He played a little more tentatively compared to Cincy. But only losing 10 points total on serve all night is domination on that aspect. On to round 3! And, happy 24th birthday!

The serve was good, the rest was...okay. I'm glad that he looked unhappy with it as well. He'll raise the level in the next round.

Survive and advance...

Re: Roddick dt. Pless 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3

His serve was frickin' awesome. 98% first serve percentage. Held to love 10 times? Unreal.

But the rest of his game was bad and he was obviously unhappy with his play. He couldn't find his groove, he was playing tenative again, the forehand went MIA. Ay. Hopefully he'll shake the last of his nerves off and get back in his peacock strutting mode.

But now he can relax and celebrate. Happy24th Birthday to our embattled, loveable Ducky (not you, Jerry).

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

He wasn't great but he was alright when he needed to be and he won

I'm glad he didn't lose on his birthday again, that would have been awful

Re: Roddick dt. Pless 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3

nice analyses of roddick's game. imo, roddick played exactly like he had before cincy: yards behind baseline on rallies which gave way to many neutral/defensive/weak shots. his one saving grace was pless' complete inability to return roddick's serve and keep balls in play. pless gave the game away. roddick was right to look unhappy after the match because although he can cream players like pless w/ that level of play, top ten players will take him to school. no breaks on pless' serve in the 2nd is unacceptable. the theme all year long has been roddick gets to third or fourth round and gets sent packing by a real top 10, top 20 player. he'll need to go back to a cincy state of mind if he is to pose any real challenge to make it to the final.

Re: Roddick dt. Pless 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3

Happy b'day Andy. Monster serving display today. I think Andy has improved his kick serve. I don't know why he seemed tentative on his groundies but made up for it by being aggressive on his service returns.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Roddick dt. Pless 6-3, 7-6 (3), 6-3

he didn't serve at 98%, that's impossible. i think he won 98% of his first serve points rather.
