Re: Roddick challenges his own serve

I always found him to be pretty boring to watch on TV but he was actually very entertaining to watch in person when I saw him play in Atlanta.

I don't see why it would be allowed. On other shots you can't challenge after you make a play on the ball and see the result of your own shot, so why would it be allowed to challenge after you see your opinion hit a return winner?

He did that in a USO final Of course it failed there.

Re: Roddick challenges his own serve

I was going to reply saying by logic this shouldn't be allowed, as the result of the opponents shot is the only reason he challenged. But then I watched the video, and he could have easily gotten to the return but didn't play it because he thought his serve was out. Now I guess that you could also say he only did this because of the result of the next shot, but he legitimately didn't make any move to play the point because he believed his serve was out so I think I'm fine with it here.

I've seen Roddick do this before in a case where it shouldn't have been allowed which is why I thought the above. Can't find the viedo now but here's a snippit from an article about one against Ferrer at Wimbledon

Wimbledon 2012: Andy Roddick's star on the wane as David Ferrer takes centre stage - Telegraph

Quote:
On break-point, Roddick pinged a serve right on to the service line, only to see the ball flying back past him again. In desperation, Roddick challenged the call on his own serve - possibly the only time a player has tried to get his own shot ruled out - but it was no good. Third set to Ferrer, 6-4.

Re: Roddick challenges his own serve

I remember Nadal did the same vs Berdych at AO a few years ago.

Here?



That obviously shouldn't be allowed. Not only did Fed only want to challenge because of the result of his opponents shot he played his opponents shot, missed it and then asked for review on a ball 3 shots prior. It would be like seeing a ball land out at your feet, hitting it back, then your opponent hits a winner and you ask for a review of the ball at your feet 3 shots prior. Which as we all know isn't allowed for obvious reasons. I can't believe Federer actually disagreed with him there instead of knowing it shouldn't be allowed but trying to get away with it anyway.

he clearly didn't make a play on the return, because he felt his serve was out and was expecting the call. that's why he didn't go for it
