    I am the one of the biggest Federer supporters, but we all know this is probably ARODs only chance at a major.

    No, but those over-sized RBs look ridiculous.

    Here's my thing.

    If my job requires me to stay in the world's best physical condition, I expect a little support from my SO, if you catch my drift.

    Hahaha... poor guy. Only chance at a major being against the best player in history at Wimbledon? Roddick doesn't look at all like he's going to back off. What a pass!

    Roddick is placing the ball like a champ.

    You know, I have seen a number of the calls people have contested, and before hawkeye called them good or out I have seen it exactly the same way the shotspot ends up calling it. I think this is a lot of controversy about nothing, players see shots the way they want to a lot of the time.

    Fed is my favorite player, but I guess I'm pulling for Andy just a little. Not by much, but either way I'm good with who wins.

    I've gotten tired of over the years when the majors roll around Roddick and Blake are always looked at as serious challengers. And every year they make early exits and fail to live up to their talent. It's good to finally see Andy bring the game that everyone thought he had in him.

    Since this went to overtime, Roddick's serving percentage has been above 70% and better than his overall average for the match. That's absurd.

    Apparently organizers are going to "discuss" that with IBM.

    I can't get over how well Roddick's playing his groundstrokes this late in the match
