Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

One bad game service game against Roddick in a set and you know there's no going back.

Andy played pretty well, Murray was dreadful.

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

thats suprising and a good result for Roddick.
Murray's serve needs some work, he misses his 1st serve alot.

Murray's serve is a weakness.He is very up and down with it.44 percent is not gonna get it doned.Good win for Roddick.By the way, Murray was up 4-1 in the tie-breaker and lost 6 consecutive points!!!

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

Murray should have really taken that 2nd set leading 5-3, having 1 set point at 6-5 and also 3-0 up in the tb with 2 breaks of serve.

Roddick serving was too good today. Another decent tourny for Murray though.

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

Woot! Too big. Roddick wasn't about to let this punk beat him two times in a row. Let the Murraytards' excuses being

The British media can now officially suck on Roddick's fat one for the next week. Booyah!

"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."

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

This is an important win for Roddick and it should be an enjoyable final.

Even though he lost- Murray has had a great two weeks with a tournament win and a semi in another. No second time of the Murray brothers winning both titles though.

From what you all have said- I imagine that Gilbert will have Murray work on his serve quite a bit.

I like a lot of players.

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

I knew Roddick wasn't gonna lose to Murray twice in as many weeks. Well done, the better Andy won this time.

Interesting final. Haas dismantled two big servers in Querry and Fish, though both can't hold a candle to Roddick's groundstrokes (consistency) and mental strenght. Should be a great battle vs two great champs, may the better man win!

Murray spanks the shit out of roddick, and then gets beaten easy on their next meeting. Happening every time! Very odd

I've seen someone break Roddick 2+ times every set.

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

Tons of credit to Roddick - for the most part he did what I thought he needed to do - he served very well, made it much tougher for Murray to get into his service games. He played solid tennis and kept his cool when it was getting tight in service games. The one stage of the match where he wobbled and was broken by pressing too hard, Murray obligingly played by far his worst service game of the match serving at 5-3 for the second set, and invited Roddick right back on in. Equally, when Murray raced to a 4-1 double break lead in the tiebreak, he then completely blew it and allowed Roddick to recover.

Not a great performance from Murray - he started slow, he ended slow, he got a fair bit better in the second set but at the business end he let himself down. He misfired too much off the ground, especially on Roddick second serve points where he won much less than he has in the past.

Roddick played smarter, less approaches to the net behind nothing, and generally gave Murray much less of a target to deal with. He played well enough and got the result.

Interesting little rivalry these two have building

Re: Roddick def Murray 6/3 7/6 (4)

Roddick deserved the win. Andy just didn't play well enough and his serve percentage in the second set was pretty pathetic. He made too many UFE's and was too aggressive to start with. Roddick played well when he was in trouble and got a bit lucky in the TB with the over-rule. Maybe if Andy had managed to serve it out when he had the break it would have been different but he didn't really deserve anything more today with the way he played.

Good work this week anyway for Murray - but lets be honest, a final against Haas with the way he served today could have been embarassing.

Well played, Duckboy.

Hard luck, Andy - go practice your serve before IWs.
