I had 76ers -3 and Pistons -9, so both won anyway. I always have bad luck on O/U so I didn't wanna jinx you.

What do you think of Spurs @ Heat tomorrow? Almost even money, I think Spurs should win it, Heat have a poor record against the west.

Does somebody know if the match will be shown on television? and what channel?
Don't think Eurosport will send it ... :/
They only show WTA Tennis ... don't understand why they don't show ATP Tennis ... not because it's more interesting - but i think they should show both ...

If somebody is able to watch it on TV ... could you please give us some details about the match ... would be nice ... thanks :wavey:

Best serve in history of the ATP. No chance for Ivan.

Roddick is better

Bilbo
02-13-2005, 02:57 PM
Roddick is better

wrong, his placement of serve is worse, also pim pim will serve more aces this year and probably go for a new world record as he did in 1 match, Roddick also gets broken more often

Personally, after having seeing 5 m behind Johansson serving last TMS Madrid, and comparing Karlovic and Roddick (also have seen them on court) I have no doubts about it
