Roddick beats Hewitt in 3 tiebreaks


Andy's reaction after the match :
"Playing Lleyton is always hard, I've lost before and I think he's a great player. He's a rising star on the rankings and if he keeps up the good work he can make it to the top 5."
Andy's prospects :
"I haven't played Mardy before but I think it should be a goo match. I've seen him play and I hope I can use my tactics to get in the final to beat that ugly spaniard doesn't matter which one :p"

Mardy Fish def Gustavo Kuerten w/o

Mardy Fish had it easy today due to Gustavo Kuerten not arriving for their quarter final match. Mardy hit the pratice courts though to get some hard practice in before his match with American compariat and one of his closest friends on the tour Andy Roodick.
"Me and Andy grew up together so we know each other well and we know each others games so I may have to come up with something different if i am to win, but win or lose tomorrow i will be happy" Mardy stated on his match tomorrow.

Nadal and Coria show their class

Rafael Nadal of Spain and Guillermo Coria of Argentina showed their class on Tuesday by beating Nadal's ex-doubles partner Andy Roddick of the USA and showing who was really the engine behind their success last year.

The first few games of the match went according to serve, but at 2-2, Coria hit a great lob over Roddick to break Blake's serve.
The first set was then easy bait for the claycourters.

In the second set, Coria asked for a medical time-out because he wasn't feeling too well, he hadn't eaten anything all day.
Some medications made him feel better right away, but the set was already lost, Roddick and Blake broke Coria's serve twice and grasped the set 6-2.

In the third set, Nadal got his serve broken in the first game, then Roddick held, then Coria got his serve broken again, all due to James Blake's sizzling passing shot winners.
But Nadal managed to hit 4 return winners on Blake's serve in the next game, pumping his fist and shouting out: "VAMOS!"
Guillermo Coria had some more medicins during the short break and eventually it got to 6-6.
3 aces, 2 return winners, and 2 lob winners sealed the match for Coria/Nadal.

In the final, they will meet Federer and Johansson.
