There's some truth to this. He's uninspired in early rounds against players he owns. We'll see Andy open against Benneteau in the second round, Haas has been too dreadful. Verdasco next. Karloshit lurking around the corner but I expect Murray will be waiting for him. I don't think Andy will get far enough to meet Roger. Draw could have been worse, actually.

"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."

you don't really expect me to believe he'll do that twice in a row, in a place he's never played particularly well no less, do you? I mean I think he'll win his first two rounds, then I think Murray will beat him because i'd expect Murray to beat Karlovic. Even if he were to make the quarters and lose to Roger, he'll still lose points anyway

Assuming he makes it that far, I just want him to beat Murray (assuming Murray makes it that far), then I'll call the tournament a win.

If Andy loses early, can we blame Roger's mono?

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.

Great Week In Dubai
Posted By Andyroddick.com Staff On 11th March 2008 @ 16:34 In Spreen Says | Comments Disabled

Andy had a great week in Dubai. He played some great tennis beating some great players along the way and won the tournament. Beating the #2 and #3 players in the world in back to back nights was a great accomplishment. And making it two tournament wins in three weeks give Andy some good momentum going into the two Master Series Tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami. Dubai is an incredible place. It is changing so rapidly and they are doing amazing things with the city. As hard as it is to believe it seems for every building that is completed they are building two new ones. It was a very nice tournament and the crowds were great. Now it is onto Indian Wells and this first Master Series Tournament of the year. A great place to visit and be for a couple of weeks. Plus it is my favorite time of the year with the NCAA Basketball tournament just around the corner.
