Blimey! I wouldn't have thought Dent was any better a returner than Roddick, so is Taylor playing out of his skin right now? Or is Roddick just playing so poorly that even his serve can't save him?

Right, Denty! One more set like that, and you've got him!

Oh Denty, this would be a remarkable triumph - four more service games held, and you're there!

Dent now leads 6-1, 3-1!

I've seen the stats so far, and he's certainly going for the serve - he's only got 45% first serves in, but he's winning 85% of points on the first serve and 76% on the second. By contrast, Roddick is only winning 28% of second serve points and hasn't had a single breakpoint in the match.

This would be his second tournament after Newport last year, where he beat Blake in the final (and he won the first set there 6-1, just like today...)

Dent just saved all three - now hold this game!
