Very impressed that he was able to come back from an awful awful 2nd set and find some energy again. That's the intensity that made me a fan :yeah: :D

Stepanek was a broken man at the end, Andy was pumped up and said a few times "YES" or pumped his fist after important points!

If you had asked me before the match, I wouldn't have thought that the match will go over three sets. But I also didn't think that Beck was able to take a set off him. I hope he will defend the title now and play even better at Wimbledon (I have the feeling that he looked stronger last year... and that's not only because he lost a few sets already).

Battle of the titans. Andy has more pop, Karlovic is more consistant.

The serve king on grass will be determined.

How did Radek manage to break Roddick twice in the 2nd set? Good returning? Low 1st serve % by Roddick? Lots of winners by Radek? Lots of errors by Roddick? I was very surprised at that set score.

The articles I've read about the match kept mentioning a "sloppy second set by Roddick," and Roddick commented that he wasn't serving or returning well. Regardless, we all have our match hiccups.

I hate to say it, but Ivo is an awesome server, and Andy is one of the worst when put up against other big servers (atleast when they're serving well). Anyone smell a pre-Wimbledon upset? ;)

I wonder if the weak field in Queens hurts Roddick's preperations for Wimbledon. :scratch:

at 0-1 Andy was up 40-0 then threw in a horrifically lazy rest of that service game to lose serve. Johnny Mac said he lost concentration and seemed out of it. Then he started missing awfully on the returns. He was basically just out of it in the 2nd set, had no energy. At one point at the end of the set, Johnny Mac was like "Get Andy a cappucino" - so basically yea, Andy just went away in the 2nd set and Radek just rolled.

The cat, are you serious? weak field??? Philippoussis, Beck, Grosjean, and Stepanek are all very very good grass players. I don't think the field is at all weak.

well, most of the times, Roddick made every field in Queen's look weak ;)
