You're probably right. It will be a night match at the Open on QF night, about as electric as the crowd gets here. If he is ever to beat Federer in a Slam match, that would be his chance.

Re: ****** Us Open C'mon Roger Lets Make It Your 12th Grand Slam ******

The singles draws (both male and female) are the most fucked-up draws I've ever seen. Don't know if I'll change my mind later.

and waking a sleeping giant"
Andre Agassi at the 2K7 USO QF match between Federer and Roddick


I'd rather give out good rep points than respond to dumbass threads

Being called fangirl/fanboy is not a compliment.

I agree, but he is not. Poor Roddick...

It might be true, but with this h-h record Roddick can not be happy to see him across the net, even in the 1st round.

Isner at night wouldn't be fun as it would impossible to return his serve, but I doubt Isner gets that far.

Did you see Sharapova's half. Top half of the women's draw has Henin, both Williams, Ivanovic, Jankovic. :retard:

Does Roddick potentially have to beat Karlovic and Berdych to meet Roger in the quarters?

Yeah, really. I'm not one to believe in rigged draws, but I can't remember the last time Sharapova had a tough draw....this is ridiculous.

Yup. Ivo won't beat him and I doubt Berdy will either. Roddick will be in the QF's.

Well I thought he'd make the finals of Cincy, so I've stopped predicting with him.

They need to ensure the highest paid female athlete makes the final to justify that paycheck

I don't feel so very positive about Roger's draw. Maybe because I don't think he is in very good form. I was hoping for a cakewalk draw Seriously, I don't like seeing Roddick in the QF. If Roger plays like crap, all Roddick is going to need is one lousy game per set and I'd wager he'd hold his own serve if he got those breaks.

Be positive. It's not like Roddick has been in his best form this summer either. And don't forget you thought either Blake or Davydenko would be the winner of Cincy.
