Roddick served out 23 aces, whilst Berankis had a rough day - 38 % 1st serve.

Expected. And Rodick being the mug he is dropping a set to someone serving at 38% first serve :o. Shame on you Rodick, it is time to hang up the racquet.

Impressive that Ricaras won a set considering those statistics.

Berankis was down 0-40 middle 1st set, he saved all 3 & won the game


The game after Roddick had a brain fart and dropped his serve

woeful serving from Berankis...a guy needs to do something with his first serve if he wants to start beating TOP 10 players - maybe a new coach would be a welcome addition

He simply had an off day like they all do. Overall he has a terrific serve when you consider his lack of height.

Should be an interesting R2 match against Janko

Taking a set off a player like Roddick is pretty good. Keep improving Richard :)

What does height have to do with it?

Berankis is an absolute joke. Roddick should be ashamed dropping a set to such a limited player who cant hurt you what so ever. You see Rica, Roddick is a player who has an entertaining personality and Rica should learn from him. I mean could Berankis be anymore dull. I am pleased to see Roddick wipe the floor with his overrated self. Berankis is no match for a low league club player like Berankis who is dabbled in mediocrity. Roddick is everything that Berankis aspires to be but wont be. Roddick was the teacher and Rica was the student who failed his exam.

Good for the game. Roddick taking out the trash and putting it in the junkyard :worship:

Rematch with Tipsy should be GREAT

I wish the powers to be at MTF could do something about this Federer's Mate poster. There is no need for that sort of talk here. I guess you must be a losing gambler?

Well he won, but when you have put money on him and he is screwing around like that.... got me nervous for a while there. It is not good for my health you know :D:D

Roddick always does well against low quality players who dont have any spark, so he was never going to lose this. It's the good players that have variety and different game plans that are a problem for Andy. Roger is a PRIME example of this.

Do what exactly? He has opinions, in this case his opinions are disparaging and expressed plainly but not in violation of any rules that I can see. If you don't like what he's saying, you can always put him on ignore...

He's not going to do that Scoobs. INSTEAD, he's going to attack me and my insight without an explanation. Without giving his view on the result at hand.

Using a word like trash to describe a player is totally uncalled for in my opinion. There should be no place for anyone who insults a player like that.

Professional trolling mate. A player wouldn't be complete if he wouldn't have any of those. Keep it up.

Surely one should be praising a player with a fairly limited game getting to the top 100 at the age of 20. I wonder how Federer's Mate gets on in the real world.

Are you trying to provoke me?. As nice as it is that my opinion is a matter of life and death to you, do try and stick to the topic at hand because this is a tennis forum for tennis discussion. Might make you look like less of a troll.

I guess he's not. He's just one of those Dimitrotards. He can't stand Ricardas because his future Federer Dimitrov got schooled in Helsinki. What a shame.

You're wrong, Scoobs. Posters should be banned for posting such utter stupidity. Including myself.

Grow some balls and clean this place of trolls.

30 posts in and yet I'm one of the only posters to have made an analysis/thoughts on the result. Apparently I'm strange as a result :rolleyes:

You can go rather boast about Dimitrovs amazing winning streak and amazing umpire molesting personality, leave this kid alone :)

Why are you bringing Dimitrov here, when he isn't involved. Why are you insulting him?. Why should i boast about those things?

Yeah in your eyes i did. I don't care what you would like to see, what you would like to see is none of my concern. I think we both have different views on what analysis/thoughts are :rolleyes:

This thread is weird. Anyway, doesn't bode well that Andy took 3 sets to beat Berankis. He'll probably lose to Tipsy...AGAIN.

It's becoming very obvious that Andy doesn't want to learn anything new.

EDIT: Or use anything old that was useful.

simple geometry, actually. it's tough to develop a great serve at only 5' 8".

Taking a set off Roddick (no matter how bad he is) while having 38% 1st serves is pretty good. Berankis played pretty bad too, but Roddick still lost a set :lol:
Berankis on a good day >>> Roddick.

Unfortunately, he is indeed not in explicit violation of any MTF rules.

However, I think that this is more of an indication of the inappropriateness of MTF's rules than of the appropriateness of F Mate's posts. Because his typically ignorant, trollish, gratuitously hostile, boorish posts are not in violation of any MTF rules, I think that there should be a few more added. ;)

A poster that is not directly wishing death threats or personal injury can still do an awful lot to make forums miserably tedious and hard to stomach. I'm sure the moderators understand this better than most.


Good start here for Roddick. I am greatly looking forward to the upcoming match with Tipsy.
