I can see Roddick causing an upset and beating Hewitt today. Roddick is serving like an animal this tournament and re discovered his best form. We all know he's at his best on US soil, meanwhile Hewitt isn't the same player since he got married. Last match up was very close, so I think this time Roddick can win.

GO ANDY!!!!

Roddick is serve only. Won't work against Lleyton. Hewitt will rip him a new one and send his luck back to where it belongs.

Wonder why so many people still think Roddick is a top player. His time is over. Get over it already.

Be careful. Roddick is a different player on US Soil. He found his confidence this week by escaping vs Ferrero. Since then he's like a new player. I never said he's better than Lleyton, but the time is right here for a win.

FIGHT ANDY FIGHT!!!!

After being taken to three sets by Ferrero and Youzhny, I definitely don't think roddick's game has clicked much this tournament. He has done very little to develop more parts of his game, and his serve is being read better and better by everyone --definitely expect Lleyton to win this

Roddick is clocking 145mph on crucial TB points. A good sign that he is serving big under pressure. That's more typical of Andy at his best.

That doesn't matter to a player like Hewitt. He's beaten Andy on US soil every time they played. Hewitt's lone loss to Roddick was in...drum roll, please...England at Stella Artois.

And win an astounding twenty points in a row? Sure...expect it. By the way, what time will the matches start today?

That was esp evident when he threw in a double fault in the TB against Ferrero in the first set after having a minibreak! :p

Seriously, Roddick looks better. But he will need more than mental tenacity to beat hewitt this time. He toughed it out against mentally weaker players, youhzny and ferrero. But hewy is a diff ball game!

Look at the last two match ups. Lots of tie breaks. This week Roddick is serving like an animal during tie breaks and should fare better.

Nonetheless, that doesn't make a difference against an exceptional retriever/returner like Hewitt. All Hewitt has to do is make a solid return against the Roddick serve, and he would win the point 80% of the time. That's enough for him to win the match, in my opinion.

Ferrero isn't weak. He's a Grand Slam champion and one hell of a fighter.
Youzhny is also a great talent. It's not easy to beat players like this.

Again, Roddick would practically have to serve Hewitt off the court to beat him. Past history suggests that it's not likely. We'll see about today, though.

Hewitt's won a GS too, and is THE hell of a fighter, so using Youzhny and Ferrero as examples is kind of pushing it. If he carries similar form against Hewitt today, then he will be eaten alive. Count on it.

Youzhny and ferrero are not weak in absolute terms, but Roddick is much tougher than both of them!

I know Hewitt is a great player. I was simply saying that don't discount Roddick's efforts in defeating quality players such as Juanqui & Youzhny.

Yes but Hewitt is a different ball game altogether! Hewitt is much tougher than FErrero adn Youzhny. Even on bad days, hewitt can still win. The same can't be said of ferrero and youzhny
