Efficient match. Andi Beck had a lead in the second set tiebreak, but he made A LOT of errors throughout. Came to the net a fair bit and was adequate. He has a lot of talent but grass isn't his best surface and he still needs to reign his game in.

Roddick served at 72%, hit 30 aces, and only lost 10 points on his first serve. Solid performance, nothing spectacular.

Roddick will NOT beat the top 3 with him chiping;slicing and blocking balls back.It WON'T work!

Can't believe Roddick just said on the TC that he "doesn't have to be good over a year but over a tournament":speakles: you are one of THE best not over a tournament but a ALL season you delusional jackass:tape: :facepalm:

I think Lopez or Rainer could take A-Rod out in the third round.

He's lucky that Beck started putting the ball everywhere but the court, because Beck's forehand was tearing him apart. That last shot summed up his last set especially. Efficient, yes, but also unconvincing.

Beck :mad:. Can't wait to see Roddick's (lack of) game exposed.

Beck should've won the second but had too many errors. I actually expected Roddick to be a little rustier so I'm pleased he got through in straights, I think he'll raise his game a little bit.

Randomly nice handshake too BTW :lol:

Nalbandian wasn't, neither was Henman. Right so, the point of my post was that I would prefer if he were to win the title that he do it beating top caliber opponents and not some journeyman. Although winning the title is winning the title and I'd take it no matter what because he deserves it regardless after years of being denied.

I just don't know what you are trying to get at. What's your point? How is what I said incorrect?

the USTA handed your boy the title by having Nalbandian and Ferrero who had a few 5 set matches play every goddamn day while Roddick was chilling in his room.It was a gift and that won't ever happen anymore!
It's good that you are also calling Roddick a pigeon since Federer whooped his ass in several finals:tape:
please do yourself a favor and do NOT answer me again

I think you are confused. Nobody handed anyone the title, that was a rain delayed tournament just like any other. Roddick had to play back to back days(and for several hours against Ancic) in 2004 before facing Federer in the Wimbledon final(who rolled over Grosjean). I didn't hear any cries about them handing the Federer the title.

Nalbandain had his chance to win that match and blew a 2-0 set lead and tanked the 4th set. That had nothing to do with the USTA.

Yes, he is a pigeon but again...what's your point? By putting my quote in your signature you are trying to make it seem as if I have said something stupid. In fact I have not, what I have is entirely my opinion and isn't in a way a controversial statement what so ever.

I was just wondering why you put it there. I mean, you might as well quoted me saying "Roddick is my favorite player" or "I like US Tennis" or something...I don't know. Why are you so angry that I'm asking you? Cursing at me, asking me not respond...LOL I just had simple question about why my quote was so special for your signature.

Can't wait for AM to chew him up and spit him out like he did at Queens. Even better if someone does it before Murray. :D

Roddick playing like Santoro from the baseline without the flare. Beck hit some nice shots but was pretty much served off the court.

All serve this Roddick. Watched the first two sets and switched off the TV in disgust. Pushduck can only slice when the rally is under way. He isn't making it to second week.

Beck is a horrendous tennis player. Zero game plan, ugly groundies and service motion. choked the TB away too. You'd think he'd learn to be more consistent after so many years on the tour and stop the WTA-style ball bashing.

Playing like this there's no way I can see him beating Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Berdych, Soderling and some other top guys, if any of them got into the rally with Roddick they would win it, simple as. Roddick is purely just all serve now.

Ivo Karlovic's groundstrokes > Andy Roddick's groundstrokes

Roddick still has the potential to bring back his old ground game. He shows flashes of it every once in a while. I just want to see him try to do it consistently again.

Pretty average performance but did what he had to do.

Hopefully he's leaving his best til next week.

A-Rod may not have done much, but he knew his opponent was a ballbasher. He stayed consistent, he used the slice, he used angles and he made Beck self-destruct. It's not going to work against better players, but he did what was required today. He never looked like losing in the match and didn't have to overextend himself as he has to play matches on back to back days.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Hanescu give him a struggle, though.
