Taylor killed hiimself with all those double faults. From the looks of the stats, Andy played great as well.

The worst part about this is that you already have Roddick fans praising him for putting Dent in his place, completely neglecting the ASS stats that Dent put up. I figured Roddick would win this one in four (I didn't write it on the board, but discussed it on msn with a certain "Hurley" if you don't believe me :p), so this was a complete dissapointment.

You might be right. But in a slam, defeat can come at any time. I haven't heard a reliable match report about how Andy was playing vs. how Dent was playing. I expected Andy to beat Dent in 3 sets, but I didn't expect such a onesided scoreline.

Roddick was playing well
Dent was playing awful however obviously some of that awful playing from dent was a direct result of Roddick playing well

Roddick got on top of Dents service games early and Dent collapsed under the pressure and never got into any rhythm

I had thought the first set might be tight, but that after Roddick had established himself there, the next two sets would be routine and fairly easy. ..... because I foresaw the pressure getting to Dent and causing him to go for too much.

Dent might deserve a place on that other silly thread. :)

My Queen,
I always find you to be fair...
NOW you have to admit Roddick had some very good stats.
YES Dent just was in OUTTA SPACE But...
Andy only had 4 aces Serving % was 61%
won 88% net approaches 14/16
11 UFO to 30 winners
Which MEANS it wasn't JUST about the serve.

Dent was squinting for more than hour because he was waiting to get his new glasses at Lens Crafters.

Roddick's farsightedness aided him because Dent
was serving from where the audience was.

I really do feel badly for Taylor. the quotes in articles from his press conference are heart-breaking.

star, a couple articles I read said it was Andy's best return performance ever. Considering he only hit 4 aces, he wasn't serving extraordinarily fantastic, so he must've just played well. And it sounds like Taylor helped him out a little along the way.

I had to rub my eyes and take a triple take when I saw the score. I guess I was the only one who thought Taylor was gonna take a set off Andy at least.

Congrats to Andy. His stats look very encouraging.

I feel REAL bad for Taylor. He has so much potential and a unique s/v style with power. But, he can NOT get it together for the big moments. :sad:

ESPNs day session will be yet another beat down...

Note to bunk: I thought he had the goods to get at least one set off Andy, too. If his head and game come together at the right moment, he has what it takes to beat Andy.

Statistically, Dent didn't play a great match last round either. Altough his double fault rate was at least stretched over five sets as opposed to three. But he was able to get away with it against Chela (who also was statistically crap ;)), and as I said at the time... he needed to lift it up for Roddick, and it looks like he didn't. I really doubt that I'll watch today to find out, as I can't justify wasting an hour of my life on this. I don't even watch Ferrero when he wins this easily.

from the BBC:

"That was definitely without question the worst tennis experience of my entire life - not only professional career, but my entire life"
—Taylor Dent is distraught after his demolition by Andy Roddick

"I was super happy with the way I returned tonight. I don't know if I've returned that well in a match before"

"That was definitely without question the worst tennis experience of my entire life - not only professional career, but my entire life"

:sad:

There is a quote on espn in the "serving it up" section where he apparently responded to a heckler who was bitching about the fact taht she paid good money for her seat with something like "I'm paying with my pride for staying out here".

yea Becca, here it is:

"One person yelled out 'Come on Taylor, I paid good money for these seats', and I answered back 'Look, it's costing me a lot of pride to stay out here'."


I really feel badly for him and you could tell in Andy's interview, he did too b/c he's been there (they haven't released the full interviews yet but apparently Andy compared it to the lesson Sampras gave him at the USO).

Andy really should compare himself to Sampras more often *smirk* I kid... in terms of scoreline, it was a good example, I suppose. Although, at least he gave Sampras a bit of a match. That does come across as horribly arrogant... beware of the haters ;)

Anyways, I suppose that he's not a tool anymore. He's just gone from T-DENT back to Dent head. These things happen ;)

I think that is true to some degree.

And as we have already established: Andy is the luckiest guy ever to have picked up a racquet.

Sjengster
01-23-2004, 07:04 PM
So, Denthead is dead - long live the Sjengman! I guarantee he'll make few errors than Dent did, and certainly fewer double faults; unfortunately, whether he has anything whatsoever to threaten Roddick looks rather doubtful after last year's US Open drubbing. Still, he did play a fairly big server in the third round, Jurgen Melzer, so he's got his returning shoes on already...

I'm watching the match... Nothing was working for Taylor and he wasn't making the adjustments necessary when Andy was getting all his serves back.

But then again, Andy really did return unbelievably (for him), he really did volley well (which seems ironic against a serve-volleyer lol), and he hit great passing shots.

So it was a combo of both, to me.

I NEVER said you said that!!!!!!!(about his serve)That was for the wonderful HATERS like TennisCHYKK

Now I am sure your response will be followed by Tangerine Dream saying Clean-up in Isle 3 which is funny....albeit cheap!

Reading those quotes I have a lot more sympathy for Dent.

Still, sort it out for next time please. I can't believe that someone who was playing that well against Agassi in the US open could lost by such a scoreline (not that I saw much of the match LOL.)

Some credit to Roddick of course ;).
interesting...just finished watching the match (i taped it today) and i found myself wondering how much money it would take to induce me to lose a match that badly.

not saying that Chela didn't help to destroy Denthead. only that IMO it wasn't enuf. tank job anyone...? :shudder:

OK.. right. Sorry, but this guy needs to grow up. Of course it was a humiliating experience on court, but if this is worst experience ever, then he lost touch with reality. It's a game and that means there are winners and losers. If you lose, you obviously weren't good enough, that's it. You pack your bags, train harder and make sure it doesn't happen again. Don't whine! Although, I do have to say, I liked him shouting at the woman, lol.

And when it comes to Schalken being a worthy opponent to Roddick. He'll be worthier than Dent, but not worthy enough to win a set, or, probably, even make it to a tie-break.

Schalken is just not the type of player to bother Roddick. 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 sounds reasonable

Deboogle!.
01-24-2004, 04:38 PM
The thing with Andy is that what he's been working the hardest on is returns. Considering he returned impressively against someone as hard a server as himself, he SHOULD pounce on Schalken's serves. That combined with how difficult is to break him.. should be no problem.

To be fair, in his interview, Dent said that things in tennis sting him much more than they should. He said the good players take these things much more in stride and move on. He said it was something he was working on doing.

For all those who watched the match on ESPN, did that actually happen when Dent hit the ball out of the stadium? They played a clip of Dent giving the ball a major ride out of Rod Laver Arena, and landing right on the ESPN headquarters desk nearby the stadium! Mary Joe Fernandez and Crhis Fowler were studying up on results but were stunned shitless when the ball almost smacked them in the head. :lol: I was literally rolling on the floor with laughter.

But did it actually happen, or was it staged as a joke? It seems too hilarious to be real. :lol:

Dent will be lucky to win one match on the dirt this year. Last year he was creamed in the first round by James Blake, playing some of the worst clay court tennis I've ever seen. :lol: Although, he probably will stand a *slightly* better chance on clay now that his baseline game has improved and become more consistent.
