Come on, Querrey was incredible until the end of that tiebreak.

Unbelievable fight by Roddick though.

Good match until Querrey choked away both serve pts at 4-3 in the TB. Thanks Sam, you saved my vcash..

Great match, Querrey fell apart.

Great fighting from Andy though.

Querrey was the better player throughout the match and didn't face a single break point on his serve. Sadly, predictably, querrey choked horribly in the 3rd set tb when a mini-break up, hitting a forehand way outside the doubles line.
He'll be gutted.

Exactly my point. He was up 4-3 in tie-break, 2 serves. The first one he hit a very very poor backhand. The second one, he went for a slow serve and a shocking forehand. That's choking mate .

Querrey lost it in a muggish style.

It's why he's known as the King of Tiebreaks. Good job A-Rod, proud of Querrey as well.

Great serving from Querrey but not clutch in the TB.

Absolutely, no denying that. It's not a new problem for him either in tiebreaks.

However, some context: the match he played would have been enought to beat pretty much anyone in tennis. He fired down 32 aces, bazillions of winners, played basically perfectly ...... and Roddick just would not go away. That sort of sheer guts and fury response is not something he's experienced enough to cope with - I don't think anyone else but Nadal would or even could have thrown that psychological brick wall up. Pretty brutal banging your head against it all match.


I'm hugely impressed with both here today ...... and that's coming from someone who thinks Roddick is a complete tool.

What the HELL were those two random ass errors from Querrey when the match was on the line in that 3rd set TB! Roddick needs to me more assertive, he won the point a large majority of the time when he flattened that shit topspin forehand out and completely took over the point.

Roddick vs Verdasco, couldn't ask for a better final. Hopefully their level of play of their 3r encounter at Montreal last year will be on display. I watched that match live and was one of the best matches I enjoyed while attending the Rogers cup over the years! I won't lie, I'll be pulling for VErdasco ever so slightly over Roddick as he needs it more and needs to get back into the top 10 to prove that his status last year was not based on one single result *cough* Soderling *cough*.

Pathetic choke by Querrey....against a clearly underperforming Roddick(maybe due to the knee). Sam was cruising in most of his service games, thanks to the serve being on fire and some big forehands. But Roddick stuck in there, and stepped it up in the tiebreaks(along with Querrey choking).

It was a scenario that you see very often in tennis, one player dominating in the whole match then somehow he makes a couple of errors in crucial points and suddenly it's over. Same happened yesterday with Berdych and Roddick has lucked out 2 matches with 4 TBs wins in a row without breaking the opponents serve once. Great fighting spirit but very lucky also.

as usual, Roddick can't break serve :zzz: and won the match because Querrey is too mentally weak to be consistent in tiebreaks :spit: seriously when Querrey was up a mini-break 4-3 and then made an atrocious bh miss followed by an atrocious fh miss to give Roddick 5-4...:help: :tape: :o


Roddick's luck pays off again :spit: he focuses on rolling the ball in play and letting his opponents (Berdych and Querrey) self-implode. When they are hitting their shots, Roddick is helpless and at their mercy. Luckily for him, these 2 are mentally frail and lose composure when the score gets tight...


I bet he'll beat Verdasco 7-6 7-6 too now :haha: :o

Roddick keeps fighting and pushing and fighting....

The big guys wont choke like Querrey on the big points, Roddick just cant play more aggressive tennis.

Now that really wouldn't be surprising, Verdasco is godawful at tiebreaks.

Querrey isn't entirely useless in them btw - did beat Roddick 76 76 at Cinci :-)

Roddick usually wins most of the tiebreakers he plays except when he faces Federer.

Roddick is a god in tiebreaks, unless they are against Federer.

Roddick currently on a 5 tiebreak streak. Clutch.

Roddick is one helluva fighter out there, he is very tough to beat. You really gotta respect Cilic for how he beat Roddick in Melbourne. Querrey may have more talent and weapons, but he has to become a better fighter.

You can almost always bank on Roddick winning a tiebreak. He's so consistent in that department.

Querrey did have a big meltdown though when he was ahead. Two very sloppy errors cost him dear in the end.

Roddick's biggest weapon aside from his serve is his mental strength, very underrented.

This is exactly why Roddick is a consistent top 10 player and why I like him. He knows how to gut it out when his opponent is outplaying him. Wish he could play a little more fearlessly though.

Anyways, Sam was never going to win the second set tb but and he got his chance in the third he blew it. Really wish this one was a best of 5. A match between these two at a slam could be epic!

Can you find any all time great who hasnt done something similar to that? No.

Remember, Roddick really toughed it out and was extremely mentally tough to get the 1st set anyways. Federer had like 4 or 5 break chances to go up 6-5 and serve out the set. Roddick stopped him every time, and then proceeded to break Federer for the set. So I think he can be forgiven for what happened in that tiebreak.
