giraldo's technique and strategy gives aspiring kids hope that you can reach the top 100. What an awful performance by him, and Roger will get ripped as he deserves it.

Roger was channeling his inner Blake, ballbashing the beejezus out of the ball :spit:

He was cruising in the first set and suddenly Shankerer appeared and he gave out BOTH breaks to Santi :eek:

Roger's serve went out at times during the match but he got things under control in the third.

No way he's defeating a half decent opponent playing like this though.

Fed was hugely dissapointing. Lucky for him, His draw is very easy.

usopen.org gives you an in-depth scoop on how players get harassed for autographs, they're acting like tmz paparazzi.

No wonder players are called "assholes" to some of their fans, i wouldn't take that day in and out.

Roger. :haha: WTF happened in that first set? Played so much better in the third; I'm bummed it wasn't a bagel.

I had much higher hopes for his chances here before I watched this match. Hopefully he shakes off some of the rust and does better in the subsequent rounds. It was interesting to see that he was working on his net play though.

Strange match. Liked the aggressive Fed but he was cavalier out there. It almost seemed like he was trying to hit hard and harder to get some feel on his ground strokes.

His game is not too bad at the moment for a 1st round match except for his atrocious volleys. He has two more days to get a better feel on his volleys.

Pocahontas wore for years tight Capri pants, so it's his turn

Apart from the walkabouts, this was actually a good 1st-round performance. Return of serve, forehand, backhand all looked good. Serve & net game variable. Movement okay. Aggressive intent. Not bad.

I love Roger but it wasn't pretty out there tonight.
His net game was awful and his lapses of concentration that have gotten him into trouble in the past showed up tonight in pockets.
I hope it will be easier in the next 2-3 rounds and that he'll improve with every one of those because this start wasn't good at all.

That said, Roger won in straight sets so this is all nit picking at this point of the tournament

Scoreline actually flatters both players IMO :eek: No way Fed would have managed a straight-sets win over a decent opponent playing like he did, whereas Giraldo should be thankful he didn't get his mouth stuffed full of bagels and/or breadsticks (especially with that pathetic serve).

How does this even make sense? Hint: it doesn't.
