I love this guy, plus I am so happy that finally someone is challenging piss of unfuckingbelievable easy shit draw that Roddick has. Plus his game is so beautiful to watch.

Win or loose I am so happy that he realy gave it all. Very unsportsman like from Roddick, lucky as always that play was suspended just when Bracciali was gaining momentum

You people are unbelievable. Bracciali is absolute crap and did not deserve to win a set. It isn't as if he has a shot at actually winning the match, so why did he have to pull it over to tomorrow?

If I am correct, somebody tried to do the exact same thing this year at RG. Hint, Hint, he's in your signiture. :rolleyes: I would have done the same thing if I couldn't see well. It's not anything special for play to be suspended. Is Roddick supposed to be scared of him or something?

Heh. So Roddick dropped a close set that he had chances to win; I don't see Bracciali taking another set tomorrow. As for Roddick's draw, it's not his fault that the good players that were in his draw were outplayed and beaten. Not sure who you would consider tough for Roddick on grass other than Federer who he'd meet in the finals. Any other player may be able to turn it into a dogfight, but Roddick would be the favorite.

>"Very unsportsman like from Roddick"

What was? You never specified. Walking off the court swiftly as he knew play was to be stopped? So he's mad about losing the set, he's not "required" to give a "crowd wave" until he's won the match. If I would have lost the set like he did I'd be pretty ticked, too. Let's not turn a puddle into an ocean. Not sure why you would say "lucky as always that play was suspended," you act as if it gets him out of trouble all of the time. If I recall correctly, it was your man Federer that was helped last year by it. ;)

Bracciali asked the umpire why they had to stop play, and then Roddick said something to him as he stormed off the court. I have a feeling it wasn't something all that pleasant, just because ESPN showed him walking to the locker room in a horrible fit.

Dirk
06-23-2005, 08:08 PM
Andy ran off the court before play was suspensed like he did last year. Roger was helped by the delay but he could have changed his tactics during a change over, there were in his head but he just got some nods of approval from his tennis pals once in the locker room. Andy was actually saved from the rain delay with Mario last year, that is when he ran off the court when play was not even suspended. So don't play this game folks.

I wouldn't go as far as to say he has a great backhand. It's a lot of hit and miss, and he had more misses today than hits. He shanked it about it as much as Venus Williams does her forehand. Once he had his adrenaline running, then and only then did it improve slightly.

Oh, and I think Andy has a very lovely, delectable ass. As for "bumping" Federer, it'd make sense to have Andy finish his match first. So you have to wait another half hour for Roddick to dispose of this guy, big whoop. Chill, d00d. :)

Andy ran off before the announcement. Not before the decision was made. I'm referring to today.

I believe the rule states that Andy will be the second match played on the court that the match originated on.

Andy saw Alan Mills motion to the umpire, so he was correct that the match was called even if the umpire had not announced it to the crowd yet. Andy was wrong in that it is traditional on Centre Court for the opponents to leave the court together and he should have waited for Bracciali. He looked to be off in his own world at that point, and he will probably realize his mistake when he calms down a little bit.

Slightly off topic. But Roddick is way overrated in the mental toughness department. He has been loosing alot of tie breaks this year. He sucks in pressure point situations. And his break point percentage is atrocious. Andy won't win Wimbledon playing like that. At least not with Federer across the net...

No argument there. I've yet to figure out why the kid isn't taking more risks on his return game. It's not as if he doesn't possess the weapons to hit good returns or to be more aggressive when his opponent is serving.

When you're holding serve as comfortably as he was the entire match, there's no reason not to take more risks on not only the return, but with the groundstrokes. He wasn't utilizing many angles and sure as hell wasn't making Bracciali move too much. If he's serving just as well tomorrow, I'd like to see him flatten it out more with some power, or open up the court with some sharper angles.

We must have been watching a different match. Bracciali hit some beautiful winners from both wings. Its more than the 145 miles/h serve winners of Roddick. I am not saying Roddick didnt have winners but Bracciali was playing well not crap, and this delay is just pathtic coz its going to remove the momentum he had going.

If Bracciali is the player you're cracking him up to be, he ought to be "big" enough to overcome a delay and play at a high level. We'll see tomorrow, shall we?

I'm a bit surprised Andy got as upset as he did. I remember a few years ago this type of display of emotion was common for Roddick, but in the past 2-3 seasons he had actually become one of the calmer players. (Did I just say that?)

Well whether or not Andy is "required" to give any sign to the crowd is irrelevant. He ran off looking like a pouting child and it's not going to help him win the crowd support.

As for Bracciali, I'm happy for him. The crowd really took to him and I hope he enjoys the moment.

I actually like seeing the attitude back. Shows that he's playing with passion. For some reason it slipped my mind that they were playing on Centre Court, so now that I've been reminded of THAT, I agree that he should have been courteous enough to stick around and walk out with Bracciali. I guess the competitiveness gets to everyone at times. :shrug:

Give Roddick a break, seeds on his half of the draw were dropping like flies today. Speaking of which, I need to change my sig.

If I were him, I'd probably have run off the court too as soon as I knew play was suspended, if only for being superstitious about losing (apologies if I just mispelled it). If he was really upset, I think it was all for the best he didn't stay out there for the announcement.

Roddick was upset because he thought he would win the TB and be done with the match. Bracciali spoiled his dinner plan and he stormed off the court without the curtesy waiting for the umpire to announce play was suspended. It's not a crime but didn't bode well with the Brits, IMO.

I dunno; his game is deeper than the big-serving Ivo and Joachim Johansson. Roddick has more experience playing big matches than many others as well, so that only helps him (despite him choking away a few of 'em in the past).

People HAVE exposed Roddick's game, Federer being the main one. However, I think when Roddick is up against someone (LIKE Federer) that isn't being aced back and forth by Roddick, Andy's able to step up the other aspects of his game to be more threatening.

This is grass, and I'm still convinced, for now, that Andy SHOULD get to the semis this year, based merely on his draw.

You don't really need to "expose" it. Everyone knows that if Roddick didn't have his big serve, he wouldn't be a top 10 player. The top players know how to work around the serve and ultimately beat him. Lots of players are serve-relient, so it isn't really a crime for Andy.

I don't like Bracciali's shots. Technically, they are way off. I do like his spirit.

Roddick was not being unsportsmanlike. In fact, on one serve, the umpire gave it out and Roddick said it was good and it thus was an ace. This was in a critical game of the third set, I believe.

He’s not the one who made the sun go down. He packed up early, yes, but only because he (like probably 99% of everyone watching that match, home or in person) knew that play was obviously going to be suspended for the day.

What is he supposed to do? Purposely lose tomorrow just to make up for poor wittle Bracciali having his momentum possibly interrupted because the Earth was rotating too fast for it? Pitch an epic fit and demand that they play in the dark while the crowd holds flashlights?

Yeah, he acted a decent bit too pissy, but underhanded? Spare me. :rolleyes:

maybe he would not have got to the final if the rain hadn't stopped mancic's momentum in the semifinal. so ultimately the rain plays as much role as bad line calls. win some lose some its 50 50

I didn't see the end of the third set at all, I saw a few points from the first two sets and assumed Roddick would finish it in three. Good for Brash Charlie that he managed to grab a set and keep his hopes alive for a little longer, but his game is certainly erratic to say the least. He was giving Gasquet nightmares with a flurry of winners early in their RG match, but couldn't sustain it and tired physically in the end - I'M guessing that is a big reason why he is ranked where he is.

Dirk
06-24-2005, 12:33 AM

Seriously people, I love that this thread gained so much momentum. I aint a Roddick hater but dont particularly like his style very much. However lately I like what he is doing with slices, his net game is a lot better and I credit that to his new coach. I didnt like Gilberts strategy, which was hit and hit harder.

Having said that I kinda like Bracciali and I hope he can get Andy to go the distance, because Bracciali is so cute and I love his BH when its not breaking down. But I aint an idiot either, Roddick will want to finish off the match quickly and the cute one will be toast if he makes silly mistakes.

Roddick fans can rest in peace he wont, I just love to watch him play.

Woot, Andy lost a set to a nobody. I'm glad your new hero has acheived so much. :yeah:

Me too, winning a set against someone like Roddick, Safin, Federer or Hewitt is big when they are playing very well. Atleast I think so :D

What's obvious? That you're a Fedtard? :lol:

And you keep proving over and over again that you are an idiot :rolleyes:

I dont see what Roddick did wrong. What was the purpose of starting a 4th set when you have 5 minutes of light, that you can barely see. He stormed off the court pretty fast, but it wasn't like they were going to finish the match today. He was lucky to get a set off of him with his inconsistent and erratic play.

I don't think Andy was unsportsmanlike. Like someone said, he was just pissed that he couldn't finish Braccialli off and had to carry the match over to the next day. Come on, tbs are supposed to be his forte and I bet most watching thought he could finish it off. Even before the umpire called for suspension, the commentators were already predicting that they wouldn't be able to carry on for much longer since night was falling.

But I do think that he has to work on other aspects of his game...he's still very, very shaky at the net and he loses the point almost each time that he misses a big serve.

Memo to the thread starter: I didn't know Roddick was always lucky. :scratch: Yes he was especially lucky in last years Wimbledon final when it he was up a break in the third set at one set all and gaining momentum on Federer. The rain delay came just in time for Andy. :rolleyes: ;) If anything Roddick is due some good luck after all the tough matches he's lost in the last year. :)

roddick didnt lose those matches due to luck. He got crushed by hewitt in the TMC, and got beaten in four at the AO.

The only match that was arguably a lottery was their indian wells match. I dont see where Roddick has been unlucky.

If anything Roddick was saved by the rain delay against mario in the semi. It came back to bite his ass in the final though.

I would say PimPim has more feel than Andy. I wouldn't argue with anyone if they said they think Pim Pim is more gifted than Roddick.

Roddick moves much better than pim pim. pim pim's bh is worse than roddick's

Only time I saw Brachiali play was againt Gasquet and he took a set off because he just went for it on every point. That may work once in a while but eventually it will get you into trouble though I could not tell if that was the case.


Also why does everyone here hate Roddick so badly? Seriously has he ever hurt you or your family in any way. The funny thing is that if Andy was ranked number 1 we would have the Roddick Express and everyone jostling for seats. I can't wait for all of you guys to make the next number 1 player your favorite player.

You just need to take things lightly, if there is one thing I learnt form alexito36 is that if you dont like a post ignore it. It just works you up, special thanks to Chloe :wavey: for making me realize this. I am not a Roddick hater, I just dont like the way his draw is shaping up but its not his fault. He is a lucky SOB, not that anyone except for Fed has a chance of beating him on grass anyway.
Lately I get mad and then have a few laughs too when Fed and Marat play like Oafs.
I just realized though that I get really sad when I dont get to see Rafa in his cute tight capris :sad: .

there is no reason to believe the rain will necessarily affect Braccialli (or, if it does that it would affect him adversely)

people said last night that going off court after winning the TB would break his momentum. apparently that was not true at all

COME ON DANIEL BRACCIALLI!

Nadal's already my fave player. I'm sure he'll get his own Rafa Rocket or something ;)

Looks like rain delay can only help Roddick now. If neither Roddick nor Gasquet makes it to the finals, Roger will have the trophy automatically handled to him.

He was outplaying Roddick at the end of the 3rd set and now is continuing to outplay him. He is controlling the rallies and if the serve comes back, he is taking it to Roddick. I can't believe a guy with this much talent can't get into the top 25.

BRacciali is OWNING, playing out of his ass in the entire 4th set so far. Andy, on the other hand, is playing like that last 4 names of his last name, a DICK. Terrible serving, continualy going to the Italian's forehand, why I have no clue, and getting to net on the most retarded shots. If Andy would just start to play a smarter game and do something, ANYTHING with his returns, Bracciali's amazing play won't even win him this 4th set. Thankfully Andy continues to be a dick so he has a huge shot at this match. Just please refrain Andy.:tape:

His backhand? Those forehands are more lethal I find. It's extremely easy to read the way Andy's serving atm, when most of them are going to the forehand. If someone has a one handed backhand, just serve big to it all the time, but he doesn't feel like doing that. Daniele should be ranked much higher than he is atm, but I'm sure this is the once in a blue moon time that he plays amazing, then will suck a whole lot after this.:o

This Bracciali is an original player... When I saw him on center-court he looked as an outsider, but I couldn't believe what devolish serve comes from his racquet! You would not expect this from someone who looks like him... He also knows to come out with a superb shot from time to time.

I like him!

Its because most good bandwagoners know that you have to wait about half a year before jumping on. Plus it didn't help that Roddick lost the Masters Championship.

Where in my post did I say that everyone was a bandwagoner. I said a select few. Also a true fan sticks by their player even when they don't play well, but I guess you wouldn't know this. ;)

I think Daniele is cool. I first watched him play during the French Open coverage and I thought he had a good game, but it was at this Wimbledon that confirmed it. It's nice to see someone who is so natural in ability and is humble and focused and lets the tennis do the talking, but after big points showing some emotion but at a classy level. I think I'd put him in the Mariano Puerta category.

I can understand since you are not a fan of Roger you can't see what attracts people to him. But please don't be an obnoxious know-it-all and act like you know better than the Federer fans what they like about him. I can assure you he has more things in his bag that attract people to like him beside his win-lose ratio :rolleyes:
