I really don't see Andy losing to be quite honest. This match will be the toughest to date for Andy at the USO, but he'll still pull through. Not sure how many sets he'll need though.

And now I'm "forced" to decide how many sets. I'll go with the usual 4 sets, to be on the safe side.

Pim Pim has the weapons and game to hurt Andy, even beat him, but I doubt he will.
Lack of experience will cost him here. Roddick in 4

i'll say straight sets for roddick with at least one tiebreaker ;)

Well even though I would like love for Johansson to win, i really doubt it because Roddick seems so focused. I'll go with Roddick in 4, with Pim Pim winning one set in a tiebreak but i totally wouldnt be suprised if Roddick won in 3.

When they played in Feb in San Jose the score was 6-3 7-6(7) just for anyone who was curious :)

something interesting.....

tiebreak records for both:
Roddick: 30-8 (107-57 lifetime)
PimPim: 17-21 (18-24)

and I'm pretty sure these guys are kinda friendly. I remember reading about them playing doubles together in juniors.

Roddick and Johannson partnered in the 2000 French junior doubles where they lost in the finals to Marc Lopez and Tommy Robredo.

ok that's what I thought.... imagine that.... those two in the finals of a clay doubles tournament :sobbing: :bigcry:

LOL, so Robredo has won Roddick in doubles? That's interesting.

And bunk, sorry if I sounded dry or rude, wasn't my intention. In fact, I hope there'll be no tiebreaks - or least not ones caused by their serves. It'd be fun to watch them break each other with lots of "deuce", =P

Hey guys, I'm new here and just can't figure out why Johannson is called Pim Pim?? and it seems the on going nick name for Roddick is Duck? don't get it at all. :confused:
Someone please explain.:shrug:
Thanks

Roddick is called duck because it was pointed out a while in a thread on another board that he looks like Donald Duck. You'd have to see the original thread to get it... maybe I'll find it later if I'm bored ;)

I'm not sure about PimPim. I've read, but have since forgotten, the explanation for that one. I have to refrain from refering to him PimpPimp, as I often typo before correcting myself.

As for this match, eh. I haven't seen enough of Pimmy to know, but Roddick plays better here than anywhere else (generally). So I would be very surprised if he lost to anybody aside from Hewitt, Fed, or Agassi. One would think that Pimmy would be able to hold serve more times than Robredo, but one would have thought that about Denthead too ;)

I'm pretty sure the story goes that Joachim's brother couldn't say his name when he was little so he called him PimPim and it just stuck

The question is how many aces or will there be any rallies in this match?

I think Roddick will win against Pimpim.

I say there will be 3 rallys but one of them will be after a let serve so they will have to replay it anyway

one things for sure, Duck wont have the biggest forehand out there,
nor will be he taller :p

battle of the two backhands will decide this........ PimPim's is just lame :lol:
it makes Rusedski's BH look like Laver's

Andy will play someone with a weaker backhand :yippee:

Sorry, just being silly. :silly:

Anyway, I hope I get to see this match, although, I might not. :(

I want both of them to play very well. I'm very torn in this match, because I like both of them and I want both to do well. GOOD LUCK to both Andy and Pim Pim. I hope both play well. :)

PimPim plays a similiar game to Andy only Andy is much better at it. Pim Pim doesn't move well, and lacks the ROS to threathen Andy. If Andy has an off day, then maybe he has a shot otherwise, I see a straight set victory for the world number 2 with one or two breaks in each set, no tbs are likely unless Andy is off his game. If they do go to a TB, Andy does awesome in TB's and PimPim doesn't do well in TB's.

4 or 5 sets. I dont know who. I dont care enough about Andy to know how great he is. I know pimpim's been doing well, and I just hope he's got something left in him so andy cant get consecutive USO titles *insert evil laugh here*

I can't help it. I love the Swedes:angel:

(looking at previous posts prediction)..haha...Pimpim better hope for a quick match, he won't last in 5, especially since he hasn't had easy matches and Andy has!

I dont think a 5th set would be a problem for either player. Johansson has only lost the one set.

It's not like either player will be involved in gruelling points, so a 5th set won't be a problem.

There should be someone counting how long the ball is actually in play for the whole match. For example if it's 2,5 hr match, the ball will be in play for about 11mins.

Roddick should win this, though it doesn't mean I want him to.

Fumus
09-08-2004, 03:11 PM
well, Joachim is more like this big oaf moving around, I would think it would be harder for him. Andy is really fit and has been crusing, I think it will be a good match, with lots of power strokes(i.o. boring to most MTF posters).

hahaha...I think the average point will be like 3 hits. A serve, a return, a forehand. :) lol or maybe just a serve... :devil:

Yes, that's true, but I am going to get one of my friends to count the minutes to how long the ball is in play in this match.

yes, let me know if it gets over 5 minutes..lol

A friend and I did something similar for a grass match between Rusedski and Krajicek a while ago. We placed bets on the longest rally of the match. It turned out to be 14 seconds.

I am going to have to send a PM to rassklovn and ask whether his brother will be watching this match and whether he will bet.

I think one year at Wimbledon in the mid 90s, the final went for about 2,5 hours and ball in play was 11mins in total.

Joachim has same weapon that Roddick has, they are pretty much equal in that department. The only way that Joachim can win this is his strategy. He better get a hold of Lleyton Hewitt now and start practice with Hewitt.

We all know that Hewitt is as good as Andre in return department. This will be good for both of them. Hewitt returns against Joachim will help him on his defense and Joachim offense. If Hewitt can take Joachim's return, he can take Roddick's (not like he can't before since he is like 3-1 on Roddick) and if Joachim can run with Hewitt and think stratigically, man he can beat Roddick. The only down thing about this is that Hewitt doesn't have that kind of Roddick power but as long as Joachim can hold his serve, it's game!

If you ask why Hewitt, well Joachim is in seriously relationship with Hewitt' sister. Joachim credited his first ATP title to his 3 weeks practice with Hewitt down in Australia last year. One of the reason he has gotten better with tennis. At the same time, Hewitt's serve is improve dramatically.

My vote goes to Joachim, but i think he's not able to win against Andy the way andy is playing now.
Fingers crossed though!

Thanks for the PM and I asked him and we would both like to take part in your bet as to see how the long the ball is in play during this match. I will be back later today and we can discuss numbers and the structure of the challenge.
