Credit to Andy I suppose. He weathered the storm of Haase playing championship form tennis through the first two sets up till the tiebreak.

Haase' collapse in the tiebreak was bad bad bad. :o But he played so amazing for half the match. Out of his mind.

Shows why Roddick is always so dangerous here. His fitness and tenacity just wear out his opponents, especially in the day sessions.

Hope Haase stays healthy - shame he rolled his ankle in the 1st, though he caught fire from it and was completely dominating Andy. 2 double faults in the tie break. His knee was bothering him also, kept getting tangled up. Haase has huge game though, again really hope he can get his fitness sound.

Haase played well the first two sets but Roddick hung tough and waited for his chances. Though it has to be said that Haase seemed to struggle with his knee a lot later on in the match, credit to him that he didn't retire.

Haase has so much game but fuck knows if he will ever get over his physical issues

I think the main reason he didn't retire is that Roddick told him to

hope federer humiliates this disgusting person in the QF.

how anyone can be a roddick fan after the shit he did today is beyond me.

He also tried to take out Federer in Madrid '09 with a first serve. :lol: The guy's a class A idiot.

Was that a joke or did Roddick really say that? If so, what an ass (not that that's any news :rolleyes:)

Robin needs to learn to shake off those mini chokes quickly, if not avoid them in the first place. Can't just completely go away like that. Loved that roar, but it was a bit too late :lol: Great to see him doing well in general and hope to see him pull off a win the next time he plays a top tenner and dominates for a good while. Very, very nice game.

Duck needs no words, same ol' same ol'. Someone put him out of his misery. I'm not keen on wathcing it for a few more rounds.

Haase was fucking brilliant for almost 2 sets despite injury, then choked the breaker and never really got back into it while hurting himself further. Such a shame

Roddick still as boring as ever

It's possible that Andy was just being considerate and didn't want Robin to further aggrevate his injury!

Agree, after the match Roddick was cordial. So I highly doubt that he was being rude earlier and telling Haase to quit.

Fair enough, but why would Haase want to chat at the net after the match if Roddick was being rude and telling him to quit earlier. Wouldn't he just shake hands and walk off, not talk?

He never told him to quit. When Haase called for the medical time out in the first set, he apologized to Andy because Andy had a break point when it happened and Andy told him not to worry about it and to take care of himself...he never told him to quit.

Heard the same thing. If I recall Andy told him not to hurt himself. Idk how that translated to "Quit while you're head, low-ranking bitch" but I guess when you hate someone so much, anything become bad lol

Good fight.

On-court, yes. When he's heated he says the stupidest things that even I get pissed. But this is regular, cool-headed Andy. He's not going to force someone to quit like that, otherwise I'd have stopped being a fan a long time ago.

He's not going to force anyone to quit, whether he's cool headed or not. He's not the umpire, he doesn't have that kind of power despite what he (and his fans?) think. He wasn't spanked enough as a child.

Outplayed in the 1st set and majority of 2nd set. Then Haase fell apart while Roddick stayed firm

You stated he was a prick enough to tell someone to quit, even when he's not angry. I retorted, and you spout something else that makes no sense.

I have no reasoning as to why I even bothered replying to such a trolling post anyways.

But as for winners, I do tend to not count Andy's aces. He seriously /does/ need to up his groundstroke winners, as much as I hate to admit it.

Andy, terrible performance. Let off the hook by Haase's twisted ankle. Just when I thought things couldn't get worse, they did. He's getting demolished next round if he plays like this.

Come on Andy, sort yourself out!

Unfortunately, Roddick's luck ends here. He has the choice of two options.

The French, who will **** him from the baseline with his lengthy athleticism, able to reach every shot Roddick throws back into the baseline. It will be like a repeat of the French Open encounter, except Roddick and the French will have a closer scoreline.

Or...

Option 2 is Wawrinka. A complete player with an amazing backhand, reliable forehand, and fair serve.

Since I picked out Wawrinka to reach the 4th, Wawrinka will be the one to wack Roddick in the 4th.

I'm more than sure Roddick will "go for his shots" in the match, but regardless, I think his best forehands and his best serves won't be enough for Wawrinka. I think Stan the Man will take advantage of Roddick's many flaws.

Haase was a living highlight reel for just about two sets, hitting winners at will from every corner of the court. Typical Roddick to just dig in and ignore how hard he was outplayed, and then turn it around.

Still, I have to say it was refreshing to see him hit his first big forehand since quite a while. It's just a shame it was directed straight at Haase's head up at the net. Very classy.

Roddick although has a tough time with Monfils leads him on Hard court I believe. Monfils also doesn't have the luxuary of being able to outtough Roddick if the match goes on for a while. Monfils isn't really a clever player on court; he clowns about and wastes too much energy on sets he's already won. Not a smart thing to do. Roddick is also way more mentally tougher than Monfils.

Roddick's best serves and best forehands were enough for guys like Nadal/Soderling/Berdych/Gonzalez/Djokovic/ and gasquet last year (although Roddick didn't actually hit his forehand against most of them but Nadal) so what makes you think Wawrinka will fair any better.

Roddick in 2009 managed to beat Wawrinka 4-4-2. I'm pretty sure he's capable of beating both players.

Haase played insane tennis right off the bat but sadly as we've come to expect from him his mind went on a walkabout after losing the 2nd set. The injury did not help either but I suspect it was more psychosomatic than anything else. Still this guy has immense talent if he could only train his mind to stay focused for longer during matches ;)

Not sure anyone including the world number 1 could have lived with Haase in the 1st set, so there's no need to be overly critical of Andy. Sometimes you just have to :hatoff:

Andy's serve (I remember his action was being written off early on in his career) has turned out to be his biggest and longest serving and most reliable weapon :eek:

Yea, totally outplayed where's your unforced error count there fool? Oh, yea and please don't account for aces because serving someone off the court isn't outplaying them either.

Because Andy is awesome.

You are a very angry person, perhaps you should seek clinical help?
