wooooooooooooooot!

Tangy and I made a thread on it at EXACTLY the same time in GM. LOL

Re: Records are made to be broken

LOL Jace. Great minds think alike.

But I am speechless. Stunned. In awe. At some point in the third set, I don't know when, I had stopped cheering and just let my jaw hit the floor without bringing it back up. I don't think Andy's played that well at USO or even Nasdaq! Is that even possible?

I mean, he really was SCARY to behold. A good kind of scary but not the kind of scary I'd ever want to face off with in a match like Bjorkman had to!

Incredible, Andy. Just wonderful.

"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."

He may be posing next to his good buddy, Getronics, several more times in the future. Such good friends.

Re: Records are made to be broken

I'm a little skeptical of these speed detectors, but I can't prove they are wrong any more than I can prove they are right...

Well I'm a little annoyed because Jonas returned that serve cleanly, thus breaking Andre's record from Queen's club.

Re: Records are made to be broken

I think everyone accepts that the Getronics guns run faster than the IBM ones used at most of the regular tourneys. But I know that SpotShot measures things several MPH faster than those too and the commentators have often talked about how the systems like Getronics and ShotSpot that are measured with multiple cameras around the court are supposedly even MORE accurate. So, really, who knows

Re: Records are made to be broken

Interesting, so there IS a difference between systems.

well one thing does seem certain, even if we are skeptical of specific numbers: Andy is serving a hell of a lot faster than everyone else!
