Just re-read that post - rather wish I'd had a look at my post before posting it there. >_< Typed it without looking at the keyboard.. or the screen, it would appear.
I'd sort of gathered that!
Just read the big news story of today! I bet Fed is licking his wounds, having been beaten by 'ol Roddy, in the sunset of his career.
I wouldnt have put money on that happening at all. Just think Andy lost the 2nd set 1 - 6, it must have seemed like Fed had set things up to take the 3rd dead easy.
Thank you Andy Roddick!
In all fairness to Fed he played sublime tennis in that 2nd set. The 3rd really was a nail-biter, but what interested me - and the comms remarked on it - was how quickly he let a resurgent Roddick get under his skin. Fed doesn't normally let his feelings show but by the fifth game he was beginning to look distinctly angry - that pesky man on the other side of the net would just not go away! But Roddick just kept on obstinately hanging in there. Really, really chuffed for him. First time he's beaten Fed since the same tournament in 2008.
