Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

I know.... no aces!? But he actually served nearly 70% first serves.

Still 5 DFs though so he's still gonna be lucky to pull out some of these matches.

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

So he's serving at 70% first serves with no aces (which rather suggests he's rolling the serve in), but still manages to produce 5 doubles? Very weird indeed. Regarding the serve, his issues have issues, it's safe to say.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

I watched Dent played Blake in IW on TV. Dent always had big 2nd serve. Like Sampras but not as good as Sampras. So, it doesn't matter how his 1st serve is, he tends to have many DFs in his matches.

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

exactly, Lee... he just goes for it on his second serve and he doesn't have the kick/slider that people like Pete and Andy do that allows them to be accurate and get that serve in even with good pace.

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

Oh, I know he goes for both serves normally, but when someone does try to really hit both the first and second you don't expect them to have such a high first serve percentage, just because they're forcing so much on the first. But heigh-ho, who knows what's going on with Dent's serve at the moment?

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

Any body else notice the noise that Dent makes when he serves he is like "llleeaaahh" haha it's so weird...even more weird than the Willaims sisters says "mmaaaaaa" or Maria Sharapove saying "beeeee"

Re: Dent blasts off Youzhny 6-3 6-3

That's why I like him so much - it sounds something like "Eeeeya-HAAAAAHHHHH!!!!"

Dent

"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."
