Thanks for the link to the vids arodfan...I like how Andy plays/returns aggressively in doubles (spanks a forehand return winner to finish the match) and yet when I watch the singles he's chipping returns into play, rolling over forehands and slicing. Something is wrong with this picture.
Just watched the tape(could not get it live. Andy is not playing great tennis, but beating Hewitt is always nice victory. At least he is showing some fighting spirit, which really was not the case in Australia.
He seemed to pull something early in the second set, gave a kind of yelp, then got treatment on it. Served okay after that but still, when the adrenaline wears off he'll be hurting tonight. Hope he'll be able to recover for tomorrow.
Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: Spring Hardcourts
Roddick said he has been having trouble looking left with a bit of a pinched nerve and will get more treatment before the final.
The treatment helped as Roddick held serve with three straight aces on his next service game, and he took control of the match by breaking del Potro in a fifth game where they were knotted at deuce five times before Roddick broke again on his third break point when the Argentinian put a backhand into the net.
