A great serving and forehand performance with 24 aces helped Roddick defeat Hewitt 6-4 7-6.

I think Roddick can beat Federer if Federer stays rusty.

Federer has had a hard time returning everyone's serve this week. If Roddick serves like he did today, I think he has a pretty good chance at winning. Then again, Fed always seems to save his best stuff for Arod. Should be a good one.

Stats say he won 1 less. Hewitt didn't too badly when Roddick didn't hit an ace as he won more than a handful of points on Roddick's 1st serve but those aces.....YIKES!

Actually Fed was having a hard time returning Ginepri's slice and kick serves but he seemed to be able to block back the faster servers of Ginepri at least from what I saw.

Fed always saves his best for the final. I am afraid Roger is the safe bet for tomorrow and he's certainly my pick for the final. I am just going to enjoy this moment as Roddick has beat Hewitt on HC for the first time now ever. It's amazing, I love everyone...well not those fucking bastards who run that sb...they can eat some poisoned rice cakes for all I care...

^He got better as the match went along. Roddick has a good kick serve to the deuce court to Fed's BH. Fed had better get into rhythm quickly...

ANDY!!!! :bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown:

He finally won a big match.

If you take Fed's average, and Andy's average from this week, Andy in straight sets. However, that's not how it works ;) But he's able to keep his clean sheet against Fed on american soil. If he plays that confident like today, anything can happen.

Way to go Andy!!! Entertaining match, and he finally showed some balls!

Fedex is going to beat Andy straight sets tomorrow, sadly lol. Fed has played bad all week but he does this shit all the time where he plays like an ass and then he comes around in the final. No way, no one beats Fed in hc final...not happening. Andy needed Genepri to take him out.

Andy was due for, and needed this win, very badly. He learned something from Indian Wells and he finally managed to throw one demon off his back. :D

Me so happy :woohoo:
