He's been playing slowly and progressively more aggresive as the tournament has worn on, at least to me.
Here's hoping for a win tomorrow
WWeezzy f baybay!

I can't believe some of the comments (I actually can believe them and am pretty happy to see them too!) about Andy Roddick's game.
Gael can't rally with Andy from the baseline!
Roddick has great hands, what a drop shot!
Andy's back hand slice is looking elegant!
I hope the Roddick-bashing posters on the ESPN site are watching this match because they always rip on Roddick and his game despite all the work he puts into it.
What are the biggest improvements/strategy changes/etc. you've seen in Andy's game this week? Is the return of serve much better?
If anybody else watching the Federer-Murray match? Boy, is Roger steaming mad, Murray really has him frustrated.
Wishing Andy much luck in the final, whoever he faces. He can beat either one of these guys if he believes.
I haven't really seen much change in strategy, he's taken some cuts on the return of serve, especially the second serve. That said, um...not much he's just serving better and finishing points better. I didn't expect to see a huge change or anything, it looks like Andy is doing what he does well. He's rallying, playing steady, and serving at a high percentage. He's not doing anything too crazy, just finishing the points that I think he should, that he's capable of. It's encouraging but he's not nearly as aggressive as he should be, yet. It's not what I want from him but hopefully he can work with Larry on finishing points with the forehand.
