Oh boy Roddick is fighting for his life out there. Just missed 3 set pts in the 4 set down 2 sets to 1. Now its 5 all in the 4th with Roddick serving.

Cmon Andy keep fighting.

Meats & cheeses, Andrew!!!! :yikes: Whew....

Gonzalez is one of those players that instills fear in my heart when he's up against one of my boys, not b/c he's always on but when he is he can be oh so dangerous.

Delpo. :( Not surprised; he's been struggling.

Roddick dominated the stats, again, but was awful in breakpoint conversions ... again. 4 for 18! Meanwhile, Gonzo was an efficient 2 for 4.

I'd have rather JMDP survived for Andy to play, since he'd have had hours on the court. Cilic's game is the kind that can give Roddick fits. :watch:

My how times change. Safina retired from her match v. Kirilenko. Barely a mention here ... kind've shows how we truly view her place among the WTA's upper echelon.

Hantuchova and Nestor are playing mixed together?! Wheee, I hope they win it all!

Also, Laura Robson made the QF of women's doubles with Sally Peers, who's an Australian who is also pretty young, IIRC. How nice for them. :)

Henin continues to look awful but keeps winning. I think the winner of the Henin-Petrova match will definitely be in the final. Maybe this event could be Petrova's breakthrough. If she keeps her nerve together there is no reason she shouldnt be able to beat a visibly sluggish Henin, and she even has the game to beat Serena if she can play a full match with no nerve issues.

Cilic was charming in his interview during the Roddick match! He seems like a level-headed, thoughtful young man.

And he's got the most adorable smile. :D

I am catching up on my tennis matches today; and I'm watching Henin/Wickmayer and I am really impressed by Wickmayer's game. She has a great serve and can hit so hard and redirect so well. And she's not bad at the net either! I used to think that her USO SF was a bit of a fluke; but now I can see her going really far this year. I like her attitude in the sense that she never wants to lose.

I'm liking this Cilic/Roddick matchup. I think Cilic for the upset. And I hope Rafa beats Murray but I'm not expecting it! ITA that he was very charming in the interview.

I really, really, really like Wickmayer's game. It's so athletic. And she has variety. I confess I thought she just got lucky at the US Open. I hope I'm mistaken. I'm really looking forward to see her develop.

Aw :( :( :(

" I guess I will ask my team to help me to pack my bags, because I really don't know how to move now."
--Safina, whose back injury prompted Sunday's first-set retirement against Maria Kirilenko

An amazing rescue story from the Atlanta Journal Constitution, dealing with rescuing American junior player Victoria Duval's father in Haiti, with the assistance of people at her tennis academy in Georgia:

Upset in the making? Schiavone up a set and a break on Venus.

Still rooting for FSU's Hated H's, Henin and Hewitt.

I root for them too. :) Though I'll be rooting for Federer over Hewitt.

:( for Dinara. I like her, and I even like her monothematic game. It's impressive how much she can win with it.

Go Andy! :cheer2:

BTW, I find Tommy Haas an incredibly attractive man. Just wow. :grope:
