Re: AO Live Scoring Thread (3rd round vs Kohlschreiber, post #81)

I went out to get some lunch and he's down 2 sets to 1? It's not looking very good. I missed the tie breaker, was it that bad?

Re: AO Live Scoring Thread (3rd round vs Kohlschreiber, post #81)

what would happen if this went to a 5th set? would they play it tonight considering it's already 12.50am there?

Of course. Didn't Roddick play a match until 2 or 3 in the morning a few years back in Melbourne?

Re: AO Live Scoring Thread (3rd round vs Kohlschreiber, post #81)

yeah, but that was 21-19 in the 5th set so the set probably started at a reasonable hour!

what was Andy just complaining about? I missed it.

He had some (?) set points. One on his serve. It was extremely tight obviously, but then Kohlschreiber ripped a forehand return winner of Roddick's first serve to set up set point, and then...I think Roddick hit one out on the next point.

Andy heard some people yelling out in the middle of his service motion, but the ump didn't hear it.

True. But I've never heard of a situation where they delayed the match That would probably work in Roddick's favour. But surely they would get tired...it's approaching 1am now. The crowd might be falling asleep.

Well, there's Kohlschreiber fever. Have you seen the sign: "My drinking team has a tennis problem"

So it was a close one. Shame.

Okay, Andy is up 5-4. He NEEDS to break for the 4th set so he can serve 1st in the 5th!!!!!

Re: AO Live Scoring Thread (3rd round vs Kohlschreiber, post #81)

Yeah. He just played so conservatively on his set points, not showing a lot of respect for Kohlschreiber (who's winning well over 50% of the longer rallies). And of course then Kohli would get himself in a position to hit an easy winner or a drop shot. The quality of the drop shot doesn't even need to be that good, that's how far Roddick was/is behind the baseline.

5-5. Is Roddick still playing passively?

They've both hit 26 aces. Winners to unforced errors: 28-16 for Roddick; 51-26 for Kohli.
