I don't remember how long the Junior vs. Tommy match was last night but I'm hoping that ESPN is using this match as filler for the hour and then show Lleyton vs. Tommy R.

If I have to deal with 4 hours of Junior I might just lose my appetite. This is reminding me way too much of the days of Sampras and it's probably only going to get worse :banghead:

I was hoping to see Lleyton on now. But anyway, I i did want to see this match too.

Tricky_Forehand

Is Agassi match live on ESPN ??

Yep, the Cinci website had it in big, bold letters last night :rolleyes:

This will be about as much a match as the "supposed" Roddick/Federer rivalry. Agassi always had a mental block against Sampras and with Roddick's game the way it is now...I expect it to extend to Junior :rolleyes:

I'm glad that Hewitt is in the Final because that means that Bogie lost to the Finalist ;) . I think that Lleyton can win tomorrow...no matter who's on the other side. I just hope it's Andre. Although, the drooling is just as bad about Agassi as it is for Junior :scratch: :yawn:

Tricky_Forehand
08-07-2004, 11:59 PM
:yippee:

The new Roddick diet for Katherine!!

What's that supposed to mean? :scratch:

At least when they were drooling over Sampras I could still tolerate and watch his matches with the sound on because it was Tennis and about 60% of the time...Sampras was playing someone I liked so I had an interest.

What am I doing during this Roddick match? TV's on...mute is on...radio is playing. At the risk of missing Tommy play (I have some of his matches on tape anyway)...I can't stand watching Roddick more than once tonight :p

THanks for the updates eudora!

Come on A-Rod! Break him!

Timariot
08-08-2004, 01:32 AM
Agassi is so removed from his prime that it will be an embarrassment for Roddick if he doesn't win...

But Andy's gotta return better. Was it last year when Agassi hit a clean service game against him - 4 straight aces? Only time in his career...

eudora
08-08-2004, 01:35 AM

Break for the set ANDY!

Timariot
08-08-2004, 01:36 AM
Agassi's reactions aren't what they used to be. He guesses a lot on serves nowadays, thats why people rack up large ace counts against him.

elroyf
08-08-2004, 01:38 AM
Roddick is not getting a lot on Agassi's serve!

Timariot
08-08-2004, 01:38 AM
Agassi's service stats are actually better than Andys at this point. Geez Andy, it's Agassi, not Goran...

elroyf

TheHawk
08-08-2004, 01:47 AM
Did you see that backhand return? Take away the service from Roddick and he's zero. Now he's serving the 2nd serves as if they were 1st. No wonder he cried like a baby after those two calls.

Timariot

jole
08-08-2004, 01:48 AM
I loved it when Roddick fired a 141 m.p.h serve and Agassi ripped it back like nothing else. It was out by a few inches, but it kinda sends a message!

elroyf
08-08-2004, 01:50 AM
It ain't over yet!

elroyf
08-08-2004, 01:51 AM
Come on Andy!

Dirk
08-08-2004, 01:52 AM
Agassi's talent is ageless. It will never rust. He looks leaner and is still moving great. I am glad the hip is ok. Andre does things out there Andy could only dream of. I do think Rogi has passed Andre as the best returner on tour though. Come on Andre keep it up.

Timariot
08-08-2004, 01:52 AM
Roddick's lame-ass return ability (or lack thereof) is again getting totally exposed.

elroyf

Roddick's lame-ass return ability (or lack thereof) is again getting totally exposed.

Hasn't Roddick broken other decent servers this week?

Dirk
08-08-2004, 01:56 AM
Andy has a good return. You don't accomplish what he has done with a poor return but Andre is one of the best returners of all time. Rogi, Andre, Hewitt are the top returners on the tour. I just don't see Andy beating Andre unless Andre falls apart. Andre has to lose this one. I do like that Andre is ripping the magic out of his bag instead of being passive and % like in his tennis.

elroyf
08-08-2004, 01:58 AM
Is Agassi serving very well?

Timariot
08-08-2004, 01:58 AM
Hasn't Roddick broken other decent servers this week?

Well, he broke Mirnyi what, once? He did break Haas couple of times and Tommy is a decent server - or at least used to be. He's got better in his returns but he's still not very good at it, and thats why Fed beats him at leisure.

jole
08-08-2004, 02:00 AM
Agassi isn't hitting mass aces, but he is hitting wide and down the middle well. He hasn't faced a break point.

Timariot
08-08-2004, 02:02 AM
Andy has a good return? You gotta be kidding. Granted he isn't worst returner in top 100 anymore (like he was 3 years ago) but still perhaps the worst in top 20. Go check out Matchfacts from ATP site, you don't see Andy anywhere in return stats...

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:02 AM
Federer's return and his agassi like ability of taking the ball early and agassi like shotmaking is what beats Andy.

elroyf
08-08-2004, 02:03 AM
Is Andy just playing crap?

jole
08-08-2004, 02:04 AM
Some atrocious line calls, but Roddick has overcome the adversity.

Agassi leads 7-5 2-3, on serve.

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:04 AM
No the winners and errors are good. Andre is just playing well and feeling well. When he is doing that, he mostly wins the rallies. Andy's serve has gotten him out of a lot of trouble.

TheHawk
08-08-2004, 02:05 AM
No, he's playing his normal game, only that against Agassi, his service-only game simply can't deliver.

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:05 AM
Yeah the calls have been bad.

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:05 AM
Exactly Hawk. :)

TheHawk
08-08-2004, 02:12 AM
Amazing how he can't hit backhands.

Oh well, he keeps getting tennis lessons: Sampras, Federer, Agassi, you name it.

jole
08-08-2004, 02:14 AM
7-5 4-4, on serve,

Timariot
08-08-2004, 02:15 AM
Andy is still in the match, but he needs to put pressure on Agassi's second serves...take a swing or something. Make Agassi run, he isn't very fast anymore. Of course Andy can win via tiebreakers, but they're always risky business. One double-fault and *kruiks*...

elroyf
08-08-2004, 02:17 AM
Andy beat Andre at Queens, taking the first set 6-1 - so he knows he can beat/break him

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:17 AM
Andy can certainly still win it. Andy has about 17 aces. He would never ever get that number with Rogi.

jole
08-08-2004, 02:17 AM
Yea, this looks to be a tie-breaker set. Andy is racking up the free points on his serve, and he needs them bad.

TheHawk
08-08-2004, 02:19 AM
Yes, it's amazing. Andre is giving him a tennis lesson yet he's still there with a chance to win. All thanks to his service game. Pathetic.

The way Andre is striking the ball though, you gotta like his chances. It is a pleasure to see him play at the apex of his game.

Tennis Fool
08-08-2004, 02:21 AM
Do you guys think that if you idolize a player too much it can affect your game? Andy went on and on yesterday about how he idolized Agassi, wore the same clothes, etc. etc.

Timariot
08-08-2004, 02:22 AM
Agassi has hit 9 aces and has won 70% (!!!!) of his second serve points? Just call him Andre Sampras...

jole
08-08-2004, 02:22 AM
It could be argued that early Kiefer idolizing Agassi hurt his game!

You should root for Agassi. He deserves a great win. Roddick has won enough this season.

7-5 5-6, Andre to serve.

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:25 AM

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:31 AM
Andre man shocking play from him. I still think he will win the match but he needs to do more on Andy's serve. I think Andre is in better shape so I will not be shocked if he pulls this one out.

Dirk: I noticed Federer indeed. What suprises me is that Mr. Texan doesn't put Nalbandian in his promotional campaign. The two love each other!

Dirk
08-08-2004, 02:47 AM
JC won't make it unless he win the Open and David sadly won't either from the looks of it. I just love how after rogi won Oz, Dubai and Life Open Mac didn't have him in the commerical. :rolls: Yet he showed just about everyone except Rogi, JC, and David. Everyone who didn't get along with him.

Awesome Agassi. God I hope he really wins this. Hewitt must be happy he might get a tired Agassi tomorrow. I hope Andre wins the whole damn thing.

How many points did Andy lose? Andy has had a great summer so far but it looks more and more like the number one ranking is out of reach. Thanks Andre. WIN IT ALL TOMORROW. :)

Not to sound sentimental and sappy, but I'm really fucking proud of Andre after watching that whole match.
