It looks as if Max has won the mental battle in this game. I think he will win now. this at 5-4 in the tiebreak.

And then I just saw Max muff a volley. 5-5

Man! Is Roddick lucky or what?
I can't believe he won that tiebreak!!!

That point to get to match point was like .......... I don't know........ Like Athena guided the ball.

I didn't really see Max choke. He did miss a volley, but it wasn't the easiest volley either. But I do think he lost his composure on the next point.

omg NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Roddick gets so lucky! He was outplayed by Max and James Blake and then gets quick break in the next set. I am soooo sick of his power tennis. He just blasts the shot so hard that the net player cannot control the ball.

Poor Max, he really did have shitty luck once again. It is the story of his career.

Well, Max blasts the ball pretty good too.

It's not like it's over yet. Max is still in there and still playing very well. Roddick is playing well too, and I've got to wonder about his mind. Is it going to get to him that he is playing well yet not able to put Mirnyi away?

yeah well max uses some skills and variety but he is coming in now off of anything Andy just relies on his serve mostly or a forehand. I hate this kind of tennis. Mindnumbingly effective BUT VERY BORING! Max has more net skills but Andy is clearly better off the ground so I cannot claim that Max is better but he sure was unlucky and plays the more daring, risk-taking tennis. I am always sad when someone can always just hit serves (that is why they call them CHEAP pts!)

I think Roddick is mentally much stronger now, so I highly doubt it.
