Acasuso vs. Roddick: How many breaks of serve will there be and who will win ?

This is a first round match in Vienna and both of them will be playing in their first indoor event of this campaign and both are coming off playing on clay, where surprisingly Roddick lost.

As for who will win, well the Duck probably will, but since these guys aren't known for their returning skills. How many breaks of serve will there be?

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Roddick will win very easily, he will break many Acasuso's services.

Chucho doesn't play well at all indoors.

Roddick will show the clean Argie how to play tennis.

Vienna's court is quite slow and surely is one of the slowest indoors courts at tour , it's a kind of wooden surface . So breaks are easier than at other tournaments

If it was wood it would be quicker. It's not a very fast court usually.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

You mean teach him how to serve? Don't think Roddick is like Federer, Nalbandian or Santoro, he gives the lesson with brawn and not finesse.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Taken from the 2005-06 tournament fact sheet :

Surface : OPTICOURT ( similar to greenset on wood )

Vienna's court is quite slow as everybody could see the last year

What they play in Minsk for Davis Cup are wooden boards with a thin layer of carpet on it. It's an indoor hardcourt and opticourt is just the makers of the surface.

When in my initial message I've said breaks are easier and the court is quite slow I wasn't linking the wooden sufrace to the fact of being a slow court . The comment on the wooden surface was just an additional datum, nothing else.

Vienna has never been really quick surface wise, but there isn't going to be much quality returning in this match.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

My comment is as simple as Vienna is one of the slowest hard indoor courts at circuit.
