Another mug who shits his pants while serving for a set against Roddick. Seppi was serving at 5-4 for the 3rd set but he played a horrible game.

The courts seemed to be playing very slow to me, much slower than the night matches.

Funny tie-break, with lots of mini breaks.

Nice sliced backhand in the last point of the match.

Another Roddick thread started by hating Linkmage :haha::haha: That amount of hate truly means you love the guy. Stp pretending otherwise.

Andy's gonna get killed by Gonzo if he doesn't stop with the moonballs. :o

He won't lose to Gonzo here but it will be tight.

Well.. a win is a win, I guess :shrug:

Actually, don't think it was thus bad play from Roddick, I've certainly seen worse.

What a draw he got. Gulbis in the second and he'll probably have to beat Gonzalez, Nole, Federer and Nadal to win the Open. I wonder what the odds on him are. 145000-1 if you are lucky.

Annoying stuff from Andy.....Seppi was smacking winners with his pedestrian forehand while Andy acted like he couldn't again, as usual. He's actually attacking better with his backhand than with his forehand, ridiculously enough. Served great though.

SEPPI HAS BEEN RODDICKOMINATED!!!!

again Seppi shows us what a mug he is :o nice Roddick :D

:lol: Why are so many people afraid to serve out a set against Roddick?

because he could get angry and body-serve at 148 mph :devil:

You've got to be kidding. Anybody who has watched tennis recently knows that Gonzo can't win matches against servers consistently. He may win 1 out of 5 or 6. Gonzo has an awful record against Roddick. Roddick wins that in straight sets. Against Niemenen, he might actually have more trouble.

That was RAndy's worst performance of the event so far. Right back into passive pushing mode. Indeed playing like this it wouldn't surprise me if Nieminen or Gonzalez takes him out

SAndy should have taken it to four or five but he got a bit nervous towards the end of each set.

Jim Courier: "If Andy's playing defense he's playing the wrong way."

Exactly. But Andy acknowledged that he wasn't playing right so there's still hope for him. :p

Four more matches Andy. :drive:

How many times does he acknowledge hes not playing right and then play the exact same way the next match? It doesn't take a genius to figure out you're not beating anyone good when you can't outrally anyone in the top 50.

Exactly, because Andy's return of serve is....


wait for it...



LEGENDARY!

Lol, Andy is actually returning pretty well by his standards. And serving well. Just his groundstrokes and his mindset in general are just awful.

LEGENDARY!

Particularly that killer dipping slice. No one ever dares serve and volley to the Duck's backhand unless they fancy hitting a volley from 1 millimetre off the court.

Good win by Roddick, great interview as always. Confidence seem to be back, it looks good for the rest of this tournament. Next step is back to top 5, where he belongs.

The way the draw is opening up for Roddick, I wouldn't be surprised if he made it to the final. Djokovic is not confident and Fed is not playing great, so Roddick could get lucky and meet Rafa in the final. Wow

Now you're overrating his interviews as well :worship:

You sure do spend an awful lot of time on Andy, watching him play, reading what his fans say (and then insulting every word:cool:), now even reading his interviews, for someone you hate. :) in fact, you have the most posts in this thread. But yes, keep insulting me and others :)

Seppi nearly always fails to serve out sets, doesn't matter if it's Roddick or John the Bookie.
