Ok, so he’s not really our hero but he’s sure as heck one of our favorite players. His fight against Feliciano Lopez was unreal. Lopez gave his very best tennis again Roddick, however; Roddick came the victor. In the first set of the match, Lopez got the early break and rode it onto a tie breaker, where he won that 7-4. The next couple of sets were really in Roddick’s favor as he dominated with his service game…as usual. In the fourth set is where they were on even tennis ground. Roddick and Lopez went blow for blow during that set. Forehand to forehand, backhand slice to backhand slice, they were pretty much dead even. Finally, they went to a tie break where Roddick pulled it out and won the match.
He’s pretty much got a crappy draw, he’s facing Fernando Gonzalez (11) next, and possibly face Delpo, Cilic, Wawrink, or Mayer. Roddick leads Gonzalez 8-3, but Gonzo has been playing his little tennis heart out like nobody’s business. That should be a good match up.
Well, just wanted to post that bit of tennis news…time to get back to watching the tennis matches.
