Solid performance by Roboduck but what a terrible player this Rehnquist is...:rolleyes:
He really pulled off a Serra in a Serra-Nadal match here. All Andy had to do is keep the ball in play and even with a first serve % of 52% he won so easily....pathetic.

Andy was moving pretty well. Those 15 pounds really helped him. :) I had no clue he weighed 207. :eek:

Well done Andy, I always have a soft spot for the Swedes but knew that it wasn't gonna be a match for Rodicks serves and power.

Rehnquist was pretty bad. Not a challenge at all for Roddick.

I enjoy watching Andy exchange 20 stroke rallies with low ranked players.

Expected. I don't understand why such an useless player like Rehnquist entered the Rod Laver Arena :rolleyes: What a waste of time for the spectators :o

Complete waste of time for Roddick. He'll probably go practice right afterwards to get a real tennis workout. Malisse next for him. Pigeon on the menu.

Poor performance from Rehquist. I couldn't understand his decision to stand so far back when returning serves - Roddick just had to serve out wide and in doing so drag Rehnquist several metres outside the court's parameter leaving an empty, open court.

I saw Rehnquist play around 6 months ago and he seemed to be striking the ball much more consistently then, although playing a top 10 player as opposed to a top 200 is most likely the reason for this.

Decent start. But dosen't mean anything may as well have been playing a 10 year old.

Roddick looks a lot thinner. It makes him look younger too, I think.

Not a great match to get a feel for how Roddick is playing, Rehnquist couldn't make this even slightly interesting.

Andy was moving pretty well. Those 15 pounds really helped him. :) I had no clue he weighed 207. :eek:
Does 15 pounds make that much of a difference? I don't really know anything about it but that doesn't seem like a huge deal :unsure: Granted I'd look scary that much lighter but that's because I'm less than half the size of Roddick :p

Boy, does it. I just saw his post match interview with Chris and he looked so young, like he did when he came on tour. Chris asked the obligatory, 'Are you mad you aren't mentioned with the top 4?' and Andy answered with typical honesty and humor saying he would have to be delusional to be upset about it. I didn't see his match, was he moving noticeably better with the weight loss?

He was moving pretty well. Along the baseline and forward.

After a while, Andy really hit some of his forehands. That was a pleasure to see. I love the sound when someone really whacks the ball.

The only good thing about this score is that I could watch Jankovic sooner than I expected :angel:

typical case of unexperienced players who think roprick has a groundgame and lose to him with too bad a scoreline.

Atrocious day of tennis on Rod Laver. All the spectators should be given a full refund and the employed given compensation for the income they missed for watching this shit.

Rehnquist is the protagonist of the worst match I watched last year, against Ryderstedt in Bastad. I wonder how the hell he qualified here

When you have Marc Lopez as the last opponent in the qualifying, everything is easy. :p

You saw him on his worst surface against an opponent who also played on his worst surface. Must have been an extremely painful match to watch :o

Rehnquist is not that horrible a player on fast surfaces, but he is a journeyman and was never going to be any competition for Roddick. For him, just being here should be big.
