Not many players could've broken Roddick in this match, particularly in the second and third sets. Good rallying as well, his forehand looked better than usual.

On course for that yes and also on course for a 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3 semi final. That would be good.

Ljubicic vs. Baghdatis and Roddick vs. Nalbandian.

Federer,Blake,Safin,Baghdatis,Berdych,Nalbandian could have done it.

because Gasquet didn t break him doesn t mean that Roddick was unbreakable today,especially considering how weak Gasquet 's return of serve is.

Great recovery from Andy after losing the first set TB. Well done!

"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."

Hey Roddick was in the final of US open not so long ago, he's in great form, so it's not a surprise. Too bad Richie collapsed physically in the 2nd and in the 3rd (now that's really worrying).

Of course not. I am not going on Gasquet's return but Roddick served at a very high percentage. Over 70% and he followed it up very well.

It was much more like the old Roddick. I was surprised to see him hit so aggresively, even since his return to form his forehand hasn't been the same type of shot it used to be. Today it was like old times, firing it.
