Notes: Taylor Dent has his first commercial. Wilson racquets.

What, Courier criticizing Roddick and gaga over Schalken :eek: :eek: :eek:

Well, that's refreshing to hear, but it certainly isn't doing Schalken any good at the moment...

Hee Hee. Courier: "Brad Gilbert inserted his brain into Andre's head and he will do the same with Roddick."

Nope. Roddick DFd on break point and gave the early lead to Sjeng. 1/2 Sjeng.

Bud Collins: Doesn't like A-Rod as Roddick's nickname. Wants to call him Ramrod :eek: :rolleyes:

Well it didn't last long then, because the scoreboard has significantly altered in the intervening period.

I'll be perfectly happy if Gilbert inserts his brain into Roddick, provided Roddick doesn't end up with the same fashion sense as Agassi did early in his career.

Ah. Sorry, I had no idea. Still, that is NBC's fault, not mine... I fear that Schalken has had his solitary win over Roddick in the same way he had his sole victory over Federer last year, and that it's a barren spell from here on in...

OK - so how are they playing right now, or should I say how WERE they playing?

Re: RCA Championships on NBC today at 1:30pm

Are you a the youngest in your family--no, you're the middle child, right?

Roddick is getting quick pts off his serve. Courier thinks that Roddick should be creaming Schalken, which he's not doing. He's standing too far back (8-10 feet) behind the baseline and not attacking Schalken's serve.

Talking about how Roddick BB (before Brad) didn't scout players, but all players were scouting him...

Talking about how he's been dominating ping pong and tennis videos in the players lounge. Creamed Courier in a 1 and 9 seconds...

Roddick doesn't get as many quick points off his serve as Pete because his racquet is not as heavy...

Schalken triple-pumped fist saving 3 break points (although already down two breaks in the 2nd). Who does he think he is, Verkerk? :eek:

"Are you the youngest in your family" - huh? Although now you come to mention it, I am the middle child, which is remarkable guesswork on your part.

Sounds very sensible to me - one fist pump for each breakpoint saved. But no, he certainly ain't a Verkerk in the emotions department, although if he were more like him in the serve department he might have given Roddick a little more of a match...

Maybe Holmes, but since you cannot even see me, much less observe me, I fail to see how your deductive powers have arrived at such an accurate conclusion.

I don't have to know you, it's your replies as a poster that give you away.

Call it cyberpsychology.

What, so something about my posts just screams "middle child", does it? You were just guessing, if I'd suddenly told you I was the oldest child you wouldn't have a leg to stand on.
