What Roddick had to say afterwards

"I'm not going to talk about this tonight, guys. I lost a match to a guy who played better than I did. We can ask it in as many different ways as we want," said the American.

"I'm going to not discuss it. I made a choice. I played. I'm fine. I lost.

clap
One thing about Roddick ,he will tell it like it is and not take any guff from the media.

Thank you bluberryhill for alerting me to the fact that ITV4 is showing RG.  It was so refreshing not to have to listen to Frew McMillan and his inane comments.

Fine weather interference. I've heard it all now. We occasionally get rain fade and it has to be bucketing it down for that to happen
If you lived on the Cornish coast you'd know about fine weather interference. We were told that when we were all forced to have digital TVs we wouldn't suffer anymore of it. Ha ha we do.

I am home today watching Harrison Vs Simon. Very interesting match so far. Harrison was serving for the 2nd set but just got broken by Simon and now 6-5 Simon. Not sure what happened in between as my TV went all blank on me but after it got back, the crowd was booing Harrison ...the ever so usual notorious French crowd.

Anyway, pulling for Harrison who I find very unlucky when it comes to Slams - always facing a top 20 player in the very first round and it never helps his ranking.

Though Roddick was quite right with his feelings here this time but he can also be cocky and downright rude other times.

He chucked his racquet away in frustration and nearly hit the line judge, and then had a little argument with the umpire after getting a warning. Unless it was something that happened after that.

Harrison has lots of ability but as with most youngsters just not mentally able to keep up that level throughout. Has constantly gone ahead in this match and keeps on getting broken back.

Good match this but ultimately I think Simon will see it through in four with one break of serve in each set. I'm going to predict 3-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4.

Edit: As I say that Simon gifts Harrison two break points and does the same as Harrison did earlier - chucking his racquet and nearly hitting the line judge before being booed by his own fans. Great support.  Rolling Eyes Simon saves them both.

Oh, I see. He does that quite often. He's highly temperamental and constantly struggles with his inner demons. He has yet to find that range he's looking for.

You are right. Simon's experience will previal in the end but still, if Harrison wins it somehow, he'll be mighty pleased and he needs it badly.  

Never like the French crowd to be honest. Not a big fan of their constant boooing and what not.

Just went to help do the tea - what have I missed? What happened at the end of the 3rd? I'm assuming Simon took it by what the commies are saying.

Simon did take it but while Harrison is quite solid off the ground, he's also very tentative and these two have played before and Simon is very good at playing his opponents' weakness and that's exactly what happened towards of the 3rd the end.

Harrison really needs to stop to go for too much. He won't be fooling Simon anytime soon for one. Simon now looks too comfortable.

Just catching up on results. Couple of women seeds out. Davydenko, Nalbandian and Hewitt out I see too. Beating Andy didn't do Gulbis any favours either - he's out also.

Sorry to see that Laura Robson didn't make the 2nd round.

Azarenka came through her match in the end. She was in big trouble but didn't panic and found her range. Awful screeching though.

Brian Baker through, beat Malisse 6-3 7-6 7-6
And David Goffin knocks out Stepanek in 5 sets. Not many seeds left in Fed's quarter.

The earliest Fed could face a seed now is in the QFs. Rolling Eyes
