Denis went from playing like a top-30 player the first two sets to a top-2000 player in the last one.
I wish I could only look at the positives in terms of his play the first two sets, but honestly, matches like these often tell you a lot about how a player will be mentally over their whole career.

Losing to an injured Duck whose practically handing you the match, is almost as bad as losing while being 6-0, *5-0 *40-0 up with an easy open-court put-away against Troicki.

Roddick really wasn't too injured, though. He was basically playing the same the whole match, it was more about how Denis' level changed.

i wouldn't be surprised if there were some tennis politics going on for Kudla to step aside for Roddick to move to the next round. After getting the break, Kudla literally stopped playing and committed about 20 UE to hand Andy the match (who I'm not sure even wanted it)

Incredible.

Tennis dies in a 250 tournament. I never knew how important San Jose was to the tennis world. When San Jose closes for good, that's it. Break your rackets, cut your strings and burn all your grip tape.

The universe of tennis that once stood in San f'ing Jose is dead. It's all over. Erect a statue of Pete Sampras, Ivan Lendl, and Arthur Ashe in its stead, and be sure to remind them that this legendary tournament that ended an incredible sport was never won by Nadal, Federer and Djokovic.

Nothing is as important in the entire tennis season as San Jose. And by god, if Andy Roddick wins, then truly, TRULY, Tennis dies here.

...Get a freakin clue.

Calm down dear. There's more to life than 250 events.

One things for sure, Roddick ain't a Royal at the moment. The guys barely a commoner.

Come on. Let's not bury him just yet. He's 19. As far as I can tell, this is the first time he's played a seed in an ATP tournament, let alone a Top 25 player and national tennis hero.

Come on. Why even watch a sport if you think something like that is going on? Granted, it was an EPIC choke job, but that's what it was. A choke.

As long as Roddick's showing off those legs in those ankle socks, tennis will never lose if he wins :lick:.

So basically Kudla lost because he remembered he's playing Andy Roddick. Roddick may not be the player he was but the young Americans do set him as the standard so I can understand a choke job.

Are you trying to say something about the GOAT candidate that Roddick has made look like a GOAT?

Maybe now Andy will go back to wearing the ankle braces. He had a history of ankle sprains before he took to wearing the braces so for him go to sockless suddenly last year was just asking for trouble. Although, his gams are quite delish. :lick: :toothy:

it's kind of like i'm seeing dick's brain matter falling out of his lumpy skull, and i'm having food in my mouth.

dick's too mentally impaired to quit tennis.

You're right, of course. But it was knee-jerk reaction after I had been up like 24 hours :lol:
Good effort Denis, keep working.

I don't know if this result is bad for Roddick (the scoreline) or Kudla (losing to Roddick).

Too bad Kudla didn't win. That would've hammered a massive nail into Roddick's career's coffin.

Sort of like all thoses losses to Nadal, Federer and Djokovic in the grandslams for Murray. ;)

Also - no...losing in the 2nd round of a 250 tournament isn't going to hammer any nails into anyone's metaphorical career coffin...especially not after a long layoff due to injury and ESPECIALLY not when the loss only would have been because that player rolled his ankle.

Sorry haters, Roddick still has some tennis to play...he proved that at the USO and he'll prove it again.

Yeah, kinda, except the players you listed there are NADAL, DJOKOVIC AND FEDERER, not Denis fucking Kudla.

Roddick is falling hard and fast. His retirement should be fairly close.

Also, "all of thoses loses"? Really?
