more eurosport wisdom:

22:20 As you would imagine the service games flying past... Roddick serves out for the loss of one point for 3-2... Fish framing a couple of 135mph efforts

22:17 Expect some tie-breaks in this final match... Fish serves out to love for 2-2

I was going to post the rule for you, but I couldn't get into the rules section of ITF tennis.

I think that the person who served last serves the first point...... but not for sure about that.... then the other person is up, because he gets two serves..

I believe whoever RETURNS first in the TB, serves to start the next set.

I think that is correct, but since we know who served first in the TB, and who started serving first in the second set, it ought to be easy to determine.

The serving rule is quite simple - whoever served from behind in the first set serves first in the second set, unless they lost the opening set on their serve. So if you go into a tiebreak serving from behind, win or lose you're going to be starting the next set.

16 aces already??!!

Roddick holds for the loss of one point, as the vast crowd, so close to courtside keep deathly silent between points... 3-3

I probably shouldn't complain since these two gave us the only decent final of a big tournament anywhere last year (although a lot of that was down to Roddick's groundstroke crappiness in the first set and a half), but it gets annoying watching Fish lose three breakers in a row against A-Rod 2, the Mighty Duck.

No shame for Mardy to lose a tiebreak to Andy. Andy is number 3 in the world and, I believe, will take the number 2 position no matter what next week.

I think Andy is stronger mentally than is Mardy. He's got a little edge over him there.
