    Roddick's bounced back strong after losing the 2nd set tie break...this is going to be a long match.

    Doubt it.

    Roddick has the skills to ride with the big dogs for a while but he can't keep it up.

    Rog puts it away here 6-3 or 6-2.

    Damn. Looks like it might be all over for Roddick. Tough two tiebreaks to lose.

    I don't think Andy's going to fold, if it's not going to 7-6 I would think it will be one break towards the end of the set.

    Yeah, I don't see Roddick getting broken 2-3 times this set with his first serve percentage.

    Oh my GOD!

    With no tiebreakers this set, I actually like Andy's chances.

    This one is very tough to call. Roger had a few openings to level the 4th and couldn't quite convert, so it's not like he hasn't been close to breaking, but he hasn't done it yet... he still has another gear on the return, though.

    I don't like how Fed is playing the return game. These floating slice backhands aren't staying in . On that last long rally he flattened out the backhand and it worked for him.

    Man, I can't believe Roddick hasn't folded yet. He's shown a shitload of mental toughness.

    Wow...Roddick turned it around in some manner after losing the 2nd and 3rd sets.

    ^ Doesn't help that Roddick takes Murray's playbook and forces everything to Fed's backhand.

    Hawkeye seems a little whack. Roddick has withstood so much this match, it would be a disaster if he folds now.

    It's not really Murray's playbook. It's THE playbook vs. Fed. I actually think Andy's been less afraid of the forehand than Nadal usually is vs. Fed... of course as a lefty Nadal naturally hits to Fed's BH.

    That one seemed wide to me as well.

    Yeah but in the past Roddick wasn't always comfortable with his BH, which makes it prolonged BH rallies risky.

    Christ, Roddick's serve is nuts.
