Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

Expected win by Nadal.

What a spanking. The only thing that saved Roddick from a 6-1 6-1 destruction was his serve. The only way he was winning points was with aces or service winners. Once the rally started he was completely lost.

Roddick hasn't got big enough groundstrokes to bother Nadal like Youzhny, Berdych or Blake. He also doesn't hit flat enough to blow Nadal off the court like those other players. If it wasn't for his serve, this guy wouldn't be in the top 10. He must be the most overrated player on the tour.

Also, I don't know why he goes to the net so often when he hasn't got a clue how to volley, plus Nadal's passing shots are superb. Roddick looked like a spinning door watching Nadal's passing shots fly by him time and time again.

Great way to start this thread.

Nadal faced no breakpoints, and served at 80% and over consistently throughout the match .
The title should be his for the taking now.

Re: Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

i didnt expect it... now nadal should take the title.

GOOD LUCK: Safin, Murray, Ancic, Gasquet, Tipsarevic, Tsonga, Isner, Santoro.
BOO: Puerta, Davydenko, Kiefer, Ljubicic, Canas and all the DOPERS.

There is also a very special place in my heart for the three greatest WTA players of all time ---- Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, and Monica Seles!!!

PATHETIC match from Roddick. I wonder how much Nadal is going to charge him for that lesson. Nadal 17 forehand winners Roddick 2. The serve can only get you so far Andy.

Ljubicic at least wouldn't have embarassed himself.

Re: Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

agreed 100%. i'm american and i wish could give roddick credit, but i mean...he is not that talented minus the serve. nadal DESTROYED him...and wow, i haven't seen nadal play in a while but man has he improved. he was totally aggressive and just owned roddick on his 'best' surface.

well done. nadal should silence the haters for a bit.

Great played by Nadal Was expecting a much more interesting match though. Impressed by the way how Nadal played.

Re: Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

First time I've enjoyed Nadal demolishing another player.

Well done!

(Can't stand the hype around Roddick, thanks to the american coverage we get. )

This match was kind of boring though.

Re: Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

Rafa was just brilliant today.

33 winners
12 unforced errors.

We Rafa fans have been waiting a LOOONNNGGGG time for Raf to play like this again.

Re: Nadal demolishes Roddick 6-4 6-3

Man, that was painful. And quick. I wanted Andy to win, but I was cheering for Rafa half way of the match, he just outclassed Andy, easily.

Well, if Nadal plays like that in the finals - we have a winner.
