Re: Andy Roddick def. Marat Safin 7/6 2/6 6/4 7/6
Smartest set of tennis I have ever seen from Andy Roddick in that fourth set.
He kept his game and his emotions under tight control while Safin raged - he didn't get fazed and he kept his serve wrapped up and then struck in the tiebreak.
He played a terrific match and that's a very good win for him.
Safin - too up and down - flashes of brilliance, flashes of fire, flashes of crap...the usual mixed bag. But the more solid player won.
