Score shows a much closer game than it really was, Andy was right there in every one of Klizan's service games but he had a lot of trouble converting. something like 2/14 BP conversions for Andy. He was the better server, better in rallies and better all around. This shouldn't have been this close.

2/13 BP conversion.

Wasn't able to watch the match because I'm at work. Do you think Roddick is playing well enough to trouble djokovic?

Well done 'Dick, maybe you can take a set against Djokovic. Especially if it goes to a TB.

Good stuff from Roddick. Served well, had very few errors and was causing Klizan a lot of problems on serve.

Don't think he'll have enough to get past Djokovic but it's not impossible.

I didn't get to see all of Nole's game but from what I saw he had a butt load of trouble with his movement, Andy looked far more confident with the surface today and he's 12-1 in the last 2 months. His confidence is high and I do believe he can beat any player in the world when his game is on. Today it was so if he keeps it up vs Nole my guess is he will win that match.

Roddick is fucked against Novak.

Klizan is playing quite horribly at the moment, despite a good week just gone. Roddick got the win though, and he has a considerable chance to cause the upset.

He did, except for those break points. He was rolling back in most of the break points.

This was a really good match on a packed Number 2 court with great atmosphere. Roddick really dominated with his serve and Klizan had a lot of trouble reading it. People can comment on Roddick's BP conversion but Klizan really hung tough and came up with some amazing shots to save those points. Klizan's problem, apart from his return of serve was that he doesn't have a big enough serve himself. He had to dig deep in most of his service games and you always felt is was just a matter of time until he was broken. Klizan is still a fun player to watch. His backhand slice is quite effective, he's willing to volley and I love the way he whips his forehand. He gets too down on himself when he makes errors but he's definitely talented and should move up the rankings.

I don't think he will trouble Novak but Roddick is playing well here and has a lot of crowd support. It should be a good match.

But it's the next round that counts.
