More on Pandy's semi performance:

Roddick smashed 23 aces to exorcise a few demons with his victory over Hewitt, having lost six of his seven previous meetings with the Australian.

"I felt like I was serving really well, especially on my second serve and I didn't want him to just be able to bunt the ball back in and battle from there," an elated Roddick said.

"(Against Federer) I'm excited. I have nothing to lose. I am just going to go out there and be really aggressive."

Serving and volleying much more than normal, and slicing his backhand to deny Hewitt the pace he thrives on, Roddick saved two break points in the sixth game before breaking Hewitt in the next game and taking the opening set on his fifth set point.

I hope Roger win tomorrow, but he is not playing very well this week.

people tend to forget that roger has more of a problem returing slower serves, especialy some guys 2nd serves. he doesnt really know how to attack it, noramly just slices it back. roger returns faster serves much better. after 3 or 4 of andys service games, he should get it going.

I hope you are right. Anyway. I wasn't expecting to see him in the finals this week after a 5-6 weeks layoff. So, hopefully, this might be good news for the US open.

Atleast Ninja had the chance to watch Roddicks semi so he knows how well Andy is playing at the moment. Just hope he plays well tomorrow and have a nice weather not too hot and no wind would be nice

Even though he's not been playing his best, Rogi's will to win has gotten him through, which i find just as impressive as his physical talent . Hopefully tomorrow he'll have that and his game. In a final against an opponent he's very familiar with, i think he'll be up for it. He has to come out firing, no time to 'work his way into it' now. Best of luck Rogi! win it! :bounce:

Just finished reading your comments as I was not around all day... so can Rogi win this tomorrow considering how Pandy played vs. Lleyt?

Did Ginepri play better than Roddick today? Just trying to judge how Rogi might do vs. Pandy tomorrow.

GO, ROGI, don't stop now! Might as well win this too and complete your N Amer h/c TMS!

Pandy definitely will have the overwhelming crowd support and it will be noisy so Rogi better beware... can Rogi pick up his game to win?? Pandy v confident I guess and super pumped as he is in US... he will be grandstanding once again...

weather for the FINAL???

:eek:

For once, it's a good thing ESPN didn't show this match :bolt:

There seems to be a pattern unfolding here with Roger in TMS tournaments: plays really shitty semifinals but squeaks through them and then brilliant finals. Happened in IW and Toronto last year, hopefully will happen tomorrow too.
YES

He has to... Lets cheer for Roger... Im confident...Andy played well but Roger knows his game. I have faith the training with Ginepri helped for tomorrow

I didn't see the entire match - only the first set. From the stats below it doesn't look that bad...Ginepri only had the one break point opportunity. Roger's first serve % was decent, his points won on first/second serve % was good too. In fact Roger's numbers were higher than Andy's...and Lleyton had three chances to break Andy (but didn't convert). I don't know if these stats are deceiving, but had the scoreline been 7/5, 6/4 would people have said he played so crappy? I know these stats don't show winners/UE's, but when I logged on later in the day I was expecting to see that Ginepri had broken Roger more than once - or at least had more opportunities. Yeah he'll have to step it up tomorrow, but also remember Andy hasn't been playing his v best this week. He dropped a set 2/6 in his quarter final match. And he lost a tb against Ferrero - who came close to beating him. No one has played really well this week. So I think anything can happen. And who knows what the crowd will be like because it's a day match and the day crowds have been more subdude than the night ones. Besides Roger has proven he's able to handle partisan crowds. He beat Andy and Andre TMC 2003 in Houston. Last year he beat Andre at the US Open and this year he beat Andre in Miami where the crowd was very much behind Andre. So I'm not really worried about the crowd.

Oh God I am so nervous about the final, Andy is in top form. He played an absolutely perfect match against Hewitt, and all kudos to him for defeating Hewitt even if he is 1 of my fav :sad:
The thing about Roger today he was really misfiring, he had so many break chances in the 1st set but couldnt convert, he kept dumping easy volleys into the net and FH was very average today. When he lines up a FH more often it went out, which was painful to see.
I guess I need my PeptoBismol fully loaded for tomorrows match, it should be tough but anything less than a good preformance and Roger will be spanked

I think Roger will win but he'll have to be good at the right moments, and be able to get Andy's serve in play enough. He's been pretty scratchy most of the week, inconsistent, hesitent, with intermittant brilliance, yesterday, at the right moments for the latter. I only saw the first 7 games of Andy vs Lleyton and already knew the outcome, but although Andy secured the break, and had a few unbelievable winners, I saw tons of court space, and ways for Roger to beat him. So we'll see. GOOD LUCK ROGER, DO IT!!!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

Remember the Wimbledon final....Roger had not played that well all tournament. Who expected him to come out and play like that? If he's returning well, reading Andy's serve well then he should be ok. But he needs to serve well himself.

Billabong
08-21-2005, 02:24 PM
GOOOOOOOOOO FEDDDDDDD You can do it:D!!!

I know it may be very tough to beat Andy because he's playing very well, and he's very motivated to beat Rogi. But I'm sure Rogi wants as well to win this very much, because of the #1 ranking and he certainly wants very very very much to keep his finals streak alive and his series of wins against Andy alive;)!

So I'm confident Rogi will win this, we'll see!!! Rogi will have to play smartly and TAKE HIS OPPORTUNITIES when they come. And also, return very well, because Roddick serves very strong in this tournament.

GOOOOOOOO FEDDDDDDDDDD:banana:!!!!!!!!!!!!!

nobama
08-21-2005, 03:04 PM
I'm a little nervous just because it seems Roger's problem all week has been finding his rhythm, getting in the groove, firing on all cylinders. And I think that's not something you can work out in practice, it just comes through playing matches. All of a sudden everything clicks. I hope it happens today. And I hope Roger is more relaxed. It's been hard watching him this week because he's looked out of sorts or bothered by something, never looked happy. But he's probably just been frustrated that it's taking longer than he expected to get back into the groove.

Pandy is out for blood and after beating Hewitt he is so confident and will be aggressive as he said... he is determined to beat ROGI once and for all and take a title off him... Rogi isn't really back to his form quite yet but what do I know -- only saw his QF vs. Rochus. Didn't see his matches vs. Acasuso nor Ginepri... too bad.

Depends on how Rogi comes out today -- he will have to serve v well and RETURN v well and battle the crowd...

GO, ROGI!

I want Rogi to win this Cincy title to complete his N Amer h/c series PLUS to stop Pandy fr going into the USO thinking he can win it again as he did in 2003.

08-21-2005, 03:29 PM

I am not nervous about Roger´s service games. He served very well in his match against Robby and the only time that he got broken was because he played sloppy. He made 2 ues in that game and gifted another point to Robby by hitting the ball into his racket. But I am worried about his return. He had many chances on second serves, but most of his returns went into the net or were too long. If Andy keeps on serving like this and Roger´s returns remain as badly, we are all in for a long and tough match. But I believe in Roger and I hope that he´ll step it up just like in Wimbledon and in Toronto last year. Go Rogi! :rocker2:

Andy's speech (whatever I could quickly type):
Well first of all how're you doing?
I only felt te foot around 5-all, so hopefully its okay
I dont know what to tell you right now, hopefuly i'lll be okay come nyc

The match was shaping up to be pretty good till the end?
Yea, it was shaping up to be pretty good.... then Roger started being Roger YAdda yadda yadda. :lol: No in all seriousness, Roger's a great champion and carries himslef very well off the court to, so congrats to him,

Anyone you'd like to thank?
Thanks to the crowd. I have a lot of family here-- thanks for driving out. My dad's birthday was this week, and hes about 173 years old and today he aged and is about 186

Roger's speech (whatever I could quickly type)
Yea really dont know this place, been 1st and round all m y life, now i win the tournament, surprise bec i havent played since W. but then i started to play well, semis and finals, looking forward to USO

You went away for 6 weeks-- and then came back and win this. No one would take so much time off
yea, I gotta get away from the tour, media and everybody (laughing) a little bit. next time i'll stay away a littl e longer!

Some question about playing against Andy
I always enjoy playing against andy NOT JUST BECAUSE I WIN (andy shakes his head laughing too)
I hope we can meet in the USO final.
Yeah we have a lot of respect for each other, but I am a little bit worried about his serve.

Anyone you'd like to thank?
Yea, everybody --no, there are so many people doing great work beyod nthe back. My team is only 2 people MY LOVELY GIRLFRIEND and my physio :)
