Said it yesterday, Roddick might be shit but he's good enough to beat the current Hewitt. Hewitt is now the bitch in the H2H. :worship: :retard:

Some horrible commentating going on in this match. The kept rambling over how Roddick stepped up after the first set. He did play a little bit more aggresivly for a couple of games, but changed it back soon enough. What turned it around was Hewitts serve dropping below 50%, and making 2-3 UE every game! I don't think I have ever seen Hewitt making so many unforced errors in neutral rallies. Missed alot volleys too.

Btw, I don't think the umpire made a single overrule in a match with a boatload of close/wrong calls. I don't it favoured anyone by much, but still...

Both players played well???

You can't be serious.

Roddick had no weapons and relied on his pushing throughout the entire match. Hewitt wasn't making errors until the 2nd set when Hewitt's serve completely failed him. Roddick was passive throughout 90% of the match though he picked it up more late in the 3rd set once he had the break in hand.

Hewitt got screwed on deuce when Roddick's 2nd serve which was clearly out, had no call from the Roddick-loving umpire and line judge. The American pushing gladiator was credited with an ace on what should have been a double fault. Roddick made no mistake with the next serve as it was non-returnable for the Australian battle legend, clinching the deciding set for the #1 seed from Austin, Texas.

Yeah, because of that call (which could have turned the match), I changed my reply from "not favouring" anyone, to "not faouring anyone by much."

Yeah, I think both players played well for a QF of 500 tour.(enough to entertain fans) This is not a slam to fight and give all what u have

It's a pity Hewitt didn't save these 4 match points at 4:5 instead of 3:5, would have been interestingly at the end. Roddick was lucky to hit the line with powerful 2nd serve after wasting the 6th match point :o

I must have seen another match cos I thought neither player played well. Roddick looked passive and disinterested in the first set while Hewitt just started making bizarre errors from the second set onwards.

Incredibly dull match from two former number ones. Hewitt's volleying was shithouse.

Hewitt's play at the net was downright atrocious. Both players played poorly, imo.

I'm surprised to hear Hewitt struggled at the net. Normally he has one of the better volleying games around.

You said Roddick would 'destroy' him, this was hardly a destruction, ffs.

7-6 H2H is hardly a "bitch".

These two always play tough matches. Former slam champs and world #1's. Yeah they're not as good as they used to be, but they are still pretty damn good.

No hawkeye at a 500 is a joke too.

Horrible match - Hewitt cannot play anymore and I pretty well always figure he will stink up the place but Roddick was not much better - Roddick's play these past 8-10 months has been terrible - I have said for a long time that Hewitt should retire because he is doing damage now to whatever small legacy he was going to have in the game - but I am now starting to think that Roddick is quickly reaching that point too - if his game does not step up so he has some results by the USO he really needs to call it a career at the end of this year. Horrible match played by 2 aging clowns to be honest.

Roddick now leads head to head 7-6 after Hewitt was up 6-1!

He's lost 6 in a row...if he's not a bitch, he's pretty close no?

Is Roddick the new Federer in terms of wins in a row against Rusty..?

He needed three sets against Hewitt?:lol:

Good win over a former arch nemesis. Not happy thye had to face off at this stage :( It think it's safe to say Roddy "owns" Rusty now.

to think that these 2 mugs were once actually at the top of the mens game, its a good thing they've been replaced by more competent players.

10 years from now you'll be saying the same thing about the current crop of players. It's the way of things. Pleayers keep getting better and better.

In six years from now on(average age differential) Djokovic,Murray,Del Potro and Nadal will be completely out of the picture. :wavey:

Hewitt is done and Roddick will start to slip badly down the rankings this year but still make some decent results.
