Roddick in 2 easily. Pico got a complete donation in the first set against Nishikori and if that wasn't enough Nishikori lost 8 of 9 break points in the 3rd. This is how Roddick made the world top 10 and stayed there for almost 10 years. Dominating lower level ATP 250 and 500 events and making R16 and Quarters at Wimby, AO, and UO. He won't lose to Pico en route to career title #31 and his second title of the season.
