Tough one for both guys

Andy will get through though, most likely in straights

Tough for Andy, but a great early test and if he passes he will have beaten one of the dangerous floaters. A great confidence boost.

I'm sure Ca˝as and Nalbandian will get much further than that ... Don't forget that David already played the final here !!!!

And then he lost in third round. He did not even reach the second week..

Why bother letting play the entire match :zzz: , just let them go straight to TB. The only good thing about this match is Ivo can pull an upset

Perfect matchup for me as I love to see big serves on grass. Grass is all about serve&volley so this matchup fits great to it.

Yea that sucks. Roger got all the hard guys in his half.

Yea that sucks. Roger got all the hard guys in his half.

but he doesn't have to play all of them -- he plays only ONE of hewitt/safin/ancic. this draw should be viewed for Roger as a really good one
I dont even see JoJo (aka pimpim)/gonzo/grudeski as a difficult hurdle

roger's path to the final is a very doable one, and I am so glad for it!

But Roddick doesn't have to play any of them. I said it a couple of days ago that they'd land PimPim in the upper part and Grosjean in the bottom. It wasn't that hard to predict. :devil:

i dont think roddick's draw is any easier or harder than Roger's
roddick will likely have to play both karlovic and henman and the match with ljubo should not be taken for granted either

overall, among realistic contenders, this draw really sucks for Marat, then lleyton, then possibly henman

but Roger's path to the final is not a difficult one. there will likely be one test (Jojo/pimpim/borebore) and one challenge (hewitt/safin/mancic)

Roddick's semi will be easier if he goes that far. Henman will find his way to lose, and Ljubicic is out of form.

lol, hewitt must be having a little chuckle at the moment - he just dodged a bullet there

the seeding committee and the aussie must be in cahoots to have made him no 3 :p

having to face mancic/safin and then Fed is not clear cut preferred treatment

Andy just beat Ivo and has the confidence from that, and Ivo has played so much tennis by this point, he could be tired as he's not in the best physical shape I've ever seen.

if Pandy can beat Ivo on grass the first time they met, no reason why he can't do it again... unless Ivo has learned sth fr that final at Queens AND has an advantage in best-of-5... s be interesting... sort of... not the actual tennis but the matchup! ;)

mitalidas
06-16-2005, 04:19 PM
Funny :lol:
just last night the roddick supporters suggested that drawing karlovic would be a bad draw


What if Andy gets Karlovic in the first round tomorrow. Following your logic, suddenly it'll be a good thing that Hewitt is seeded 3 and not 2.
.


now its all about the confidence drawn from taking Ivo out in two TB's (which of course came on the heels of the immense confidence drawn from the two three-setters against grass court specialists beck and stepanek) :wavey:

How many threads are about this?

Karlovic vs Roddick is a very big match.

It will warrant a number of TBs.

Enough said.

Karlovic has 30 points to defend.

He must come out strong and play hard.

The grass season is his best season, and this is the last tourney for now.

He will play if not as good as, better than Stella Artois

Roddick meanwhile is possessed with the fastest serve, so great close lines calls.

nope, on the contrary
you think (or you said) that this is going to be a tough match for karlovic
I am disagreeing with the idea that roddick gets confidence from the two TBs against karlovic in queens

How is Karlovic without confidence taking the #2 seeded player to 2 tiebreaks?

Something he didn't even do today against Rochus in 2 sets, it went 3.

Rochus broke him to win a set 6-3, Roddick didn't.

I think Roddick has more to worry about.

Please wake me up when Roddick wins this boring game

Simple: just don't watch it:)

I really like matchups like these especially when they go beyond 3 sets. Things get relaly tight as there is no room for mistakes. A careless volley here, a DF there and all of a sudden, someoen is in trouble. Always tense and fast moving. Bring it on! BTW, I expect Roddick to win in 3 TB's or win 3 out of 4 TB's. He made me a lot of vcahs last time these two palyed:)

Totally agree.

Power tennis is what it is. Power tennis.

It produces alot of games where more things can happen.

Racquet breaking, racquet tossing, crowd noise, you name it.

Just don't watch if you don't like MORE ACTION!

I like buildings on fire, and I like my spot of tea with tiebreakers!

Huh?
i dont think you're reading what's Ive written. I am saying that i dont think that roddick should draw so much confidence from beating karlovic in 2 TBs
I have not commented at all on whether karlovic has drawn any confidence or not from his two TBs with roddick --where are you reading that I wrote that??


I think Roddick has more to worry about.

this I agree

NATAS81, I love the fact that there is so little room for error in this type of tennis. Not all matches are like this on grass nowadays, but you still have some and Roddick/Ivo will be one of them. This is what made Sampras excel so much here. One little mistake and you were done against him. You had to play excellent tennis all the way through just to have a shot at him. No time for mental lapses. I believe that Federer concentrates more on the grass than on other surfaces as he really cuts down on his own metal lapses.

Karlovic can't hurt Roddick on his serve. All Andy has to do is to take a couple of points on tbs. Walking around for about 2 hours is not going to take a lot out of Roddick physically/mentally.

All Ivo need to beat Andy is few bad serve games from Andy.
I dont see Andy breaking Big Ivo's serve.
Then tie breakers are lotteries........they can go either way...

I feel bad for Ivo.....he would have made to the deep , but mostly he will be ousted by Andy in 4 sets.

1- You don┤t see Andy breaking Ivo┤s serve

2- Tie breakers are lottery

3- Roddick will win in 4


That was just too good :yeah:
