Canas takes the time between points again, causing Roddick to get nervous again. Many second serves, two double faults and an unforced error with his forehand proves Roddick´s mental problems. He gets broken, and then complains to the chair umpire that Canas is taking too long to take his place for the returns. 0-1
Canas serves 1-0
Andy vents his frustration the right way: rising his level of play. Roddick did everything right, hitting the crap out of the ball, approaching the net and forcing the returns. He went for it, and broke back to even it 1-1 on his first opportunity in the whole match (Canas hit a double fault). 1-1
Roddick serves 1-1
Andy keeps his A game working, trying some big serves, and serve-volley tactics. Easy game to love. Canas barely could see the ball. 2-1
Canas serves 1-2
Guillermo was clearly ‘breakable’ here again. Roddick couldnt take advantage of it, though, he didnt play smart enough. Many unforced errors, and shaky play. Canas kept the ball in and it was enough to get this game. 2-2
Roddick serves 2-2
Andy serving well again, but he keeps on hitting some crap unforced errors. Two aces give him the game, though. 3-2
Canas serves 2-3
Great point at 15-15. Canas approaches the net and hits a dropvolley, perfect.
Andy then a great forehand down the line winner on 15-30. The next point was also cool because Andy almost fell over the net...
Tough game, but Canas gets it playing very well at the net. 3-3
Roddick serves 3-3
The very first point was an unbelievable return for winner by Canas. Absolutely magic stuff! Andy also hit a double fault, but after that it was all about his bazooka once again.
Canas serves 3-4
Willy still working very well with his serves (with the 1st for two aces, and with the 2nd forcing Andy to make two bad returns). Game to love. 4-4
Roddick serves 4-4
Andy also very good with his serve, two aces as well, one with the second serve. Another game to love. 5-4
Canas serves 4-5
Andy had a slight chance with a 40-30, but Canas still serving well (one ace). Roddick with too many unforced errors, especially on big moments. 5-5
Roddick serves 5-5
Canas starts the game with a return winner again. A passing shot (wow!
), and another u.e. from Roddick gave him the breakpoint. He converted it with a ridiculous volley attempt from Roddick, the ball hit the base of the net. 5-6
Canas serves for the championship 6-5
Starts with an ace. I thought he would feel tight!
WELL DONE! Another ace. Geesh, he´s serving for a Masters Series title, it would be only his third trophy!
Yet another ace!!!!!
A new iceberg is born.
No ace this time. He had to play one beautiful point to win it after Roddick tried a passing shot and went wide.
GREAT JOB WILLY!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME TOURNAMENT!!!!!! CONGRATS GUMY ON HIS WONDERFUL JOB!!!!!!
