What was the fake draw? I don't like that TFA has a very easy draw. As for Fed's draw, if he doesn't make it to the semi, then things are worse than I thought. Roddick has the serve and the crowd on his side. Still, it's better than someone who gets a lot of balls back or stands inside the bs, takes the ball early, makes him run from side to side and puts the pressure on every service game.

I expected with time Roger's level of play would gradually decrease.......but, I'm still blinking my eyes from what I perceive to be a sudden drop from him. After AO, he took his mini vacation and seemed to come back a different player I am puzzled.

but who's to say it won't show up elsewhere on his famoos body?

I've lost track of the many areas on his body that have caused him to loooose 10 times this year [Malisse/Chennai, Guccione/Sydney, Gonzalez/AO, Youzhny/Dubai, Djoko/Miami, Federer/Hamburg, Mahut/Queens, Federer/Wimby, Djoko/MTL, Monaco/Cincy]!

I'm sure that is what Andre thought in 04 too. Roger will be Ninja for the Open, hell there were some good signs in the Blake final, he was taking the ball early and standing closer to the baseline than in other matches. Roger just needs to attack more on his returns on 2nd serves. I wish he would do more chipping and charging but Roger can win this and I think his draw is great and I hope he gets Dojo in final and he keeps his BH sharp in the match...............HE WILL MURDER ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Roddick, I think, is no more capable of beating Roger anymore than James Blake. He is a good match up for him, he is a poor returner, everything which makes him easy bait, and he can never serve big and in very high percentages against him. Roddick's mentality is shot to hell from a 13-1 h2h, and I think Roger would win even in the midst of severe cramping.

Baby Fed worries me more.

I doubt that he can keep up with Roger in a best of 5 match.

I feel sorry for Puschkin that Richard is in Rogers draw again.

GM is bitchy as always and proves once again that Roger must be the most hated player on this forum.

Useless. They will tell you that the Ego King is lucky not to have injures. Clueless souls, they don't realize that only minor portion of injures are freaky accidents, the majority of them is the result of poor training/schedule/technique.

I just saw the headlines at atptennis and they are classic: Federer dealt challenging draw, Roddick aims to end Swiss reign in NY, and the best of all, Calleri edges American hope (by beating Ginepri at the PP)
