Re: Tossers Thursday
Andy Roddick - Ernests Gulbis
Well, I know Roddick is playing at home soil, so It means He is close at his best and not so easy to beat. But guys like Soderling, Haas, Davydenko, Del Potro and Troicki did beat Andy in US last year. Reason of that must be Roddick passive game and play on opponent's mistake, and when He faces player who can hit ball very hard and find his game in current day, He is without plan B in these cases and match goes to different way. Gulbis definitely loves big matches, where crowd is full and opponent is top class. It's no secret that He has everything to be in top10 - great serve, amazing power groundies, good touch etc. Of course we can't see his best in any match, but I'm sure He will play some tennis tonight, knowing He remembers last US open very well, where He completely outplayed Roddick in one and half set, but collapsed after that. But thing is that I saw his dominating over Roddick game and I see Ernests chances bigger at indoors, where He can control his game much more.
