A. Again?

Q. How do you describe your rivalry with him?

A. Well, I beat him first, I think, couple of times at the beginning of his career and - this is what you are asking?

Q. Forget the numbers but, you know, do you like playing against him? Do you like beating him? How do you feel playing against him?

A. Oh, he's complicated tennis player because he's just, he serves well. So first of all he serves well, and then when he's in the rhythym, everyone gets to try them. Then you have to break the rhythm because then you have to play much faster and then basically you are going all the time behind him. So it's just break the rhythm, maybe take some time between the serves, but just a few things you have to make just so long, because when he's in the mood he's pretty tough. He just serves, serves, serves, and then he builds up the point with the forehand, and then he start to get much more comfortable on the court, and that's what makes a huge difference. Then he puts a lot of pressure on an opponent's serve, starts to play without missing any balls, everything from the backhand, and makes things complicated for the opponent.

The results have shown."

I really love them too. They are my favourite kind of matches. So much fun to watch. If only I could stay up and watch a livestream.

Ummmmmmmmm

Amazingly, Roddick’s partnership with Connors, which began at Wimbledon two years ago and has enhanced the younger American’s tennis, remains in a state of confusion. Connors practised with Roddick in Hawaii last week in preparation for Australia, they are together at the AAMI Classic in Kooyong this week and yet Connors will be flying home on Sunday evening, the day before the Australian Open starts.
