The top half QFs are today, the bottom half QFs are Friday. Roddick/Moya is the evening match on Friday.

Edit: I should say that I'm getting this information from the ESPN website, not the tournament website, so maybe it's not accurate.

Thanks star for Lleyton's match report. He is a fidgety guy.

Good luck to Lleyton against Agassi !

(Finally, one of his matches ESPN will play for us! )

The energy and effort he puts into moving on the court is amazing. I mean, we all know that, but to sit so close and experience the sound of his feet on the court and his grunting eforts. And he is the MOST fidgety person on the change over. Adjusting his wristbands, pushing his hair back behind his ears adjusting his cap, picking at his shirt, pushing back his hair, adjusting his cap, bouncing his knees, adjusting his cap, smoothing the hair on his neck, adjusting his cap, adjusting his wristbands. All of this in rapid non stop motion, knees jiggling all the while. I've known meth users not this jittery.

And he looked great!!

Thanks for the report! And I'm jealous ; such great seat!

LOL he's just terrible in adjusting anything that can be adjusted...
Once I stopped paying too much attention to it as it was just making me nervous otherwise...

Of course, that could be because Lleyton looks like he is drowning in his oversized clothing. But Lleyton's feet make a lot of noise on the court and he is gasping and grunting more than Coria... or at least louder. It just seemed he was putting more effort into it than Coria. But, he didn't play any really long points like Coria played either.
I'd love to see Coria play live (but of course I'd rather see Lleyton). B.Gilbert says he moves like a gazelle. I always thought Lleyton was the fastest and best mover out there, but here's what Agassi said after his 4th rd match:


Q. What about your next opponent, Lleyton?

ANDRE AGASSI: Yeah, well, tonight was certainly a good preparation for him. Two of the fastest guys out there. I mean, I think Coria is probably the fastest guy in the world on the tennis court. But Lleyton's pretty close second there.

It's, you know, going to be another challenge for me to find a way to concentrate well enough to get the job done. You know, I'll have to put together another great match.

Q. Was Chang's speed equal to Coria or have things progressed?

ANDRE AGASSI: No, Coria -- you know, I never had the luxury of playing against some of arguably the fastest people. They say Bjorn was phenomenally fast. It's always different when you watch the pace of the ball, the time people have to get there. But Coria is the fastest, you know, I've ever played against.


I can't wait to see Agassi-Hewitt.

It's different. I mean Coria flies over the court, but I don't know that he is as tactically aware as Lleyton. Lleyton has tremendous court sense. Even Agassi says he hired Cahill because he admired the sort of decisions Lleyton made on the court. I felt that Lleyton was getting to balls through determination and stuborness while I felt that Guille was simply getting to the balls. He's lighter on his feet. Still ... the sight of Lleyton streaking across the court directly for my chair is one I wil remember. Just as I'll remember Guille's racket flashing just a few feet (seemed like inches) in front of my eyes as he lunged wide for a serve.
