Re: ** Pwned by the USO Draw!!! Good luck, Andy, eat your Wheaties! **

Another hold at love for Andy.

He had his chances to break in that last game but he overhit the forehand twice. At least he's keeping his head together and isn't getting down on himself. For once.

Agassi: "Roddick's serve is the biggest serve I've ever faced."

"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."

i mean, no I'm not, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating to see him miss a forehand and ruin probably his only chance to win the second set comfortably.

Re: ** Pwned by the USO Draw!!! Good luck, Andy, eat your Wheaties! **

Well, Andy's gotta figure out a way to break Roger because he's not winning any of these TBs. I think Roger may kick it up a gear in the third set now.

I love Andy's effort but he's really making it more difficult than it has to be. He was much more effortless in his third round match. He peaked too soon.

I'm still happy with how he's doing. Proud even. This isn't going to be one of those completely horrible embarrassing losses.

Andy is holding serve, getting into some of Roger's service games, and not losing his head or giving up. I'm a very happy fan right now. This is what I wanted I'd take straight set TB loss then a set won and one lost 6 love.

Andy's forehand is looking so good tonight. And his first serve is 81% but he still can't capitalize.

These late night matches are killing me. I gotta go to bed. Good night everyone.

Re: ** Pwned by the USO Draw!!! Good luck, Andy, eat your Wheaties! **

I really admire what Andy is doing in this match. He is keeping his head and staying really focused. He is forcing Roger to play well instead of just giving it away.

Oh, to a thread about his 'new' grunt.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: ** Pwned by the USO Draw!!! Good luck, Andy, eat your Wheaties! **

Basically Andy's game and his stats are amazing right now, the effort and the numbers don't lie. More then that the sweat and grunting doesn't lie.

If it was anyone else he'd win.

It's the sad realization that like everyone else Roger is just to good for Andy, only I don't think this match will hurt his ego as much as others against Roger have.

I agree. He should hold his head up after this one. He is doing everything he knows how to do.

Re: ** Pwned by the USO Draw!!! Good luck, Andy, eat your Wheaties! **

i've never been a huge andy fan, but i'm really impressed with how he's been playing tonight... it was kind of painful to watch those two tiebreakers, since he was so freakin close.. and he knows everyone watching is basically considering the match over that point, which sucks.

just broken in the third set. ouch. it's nice to be so close (versus completely choking), but in a way that must make it even harder... he's right on the cusp of breaking him/winning, and just not able to convert.

yeah, i just hope he holds his serve now and doesn't, after all that hard work, just give up.
