Can't you see that this is a commercial for Powerade, which by the way they are all fake.

Pete Sampras vs. Patrick Rafter in the 1999 Cincinatti Final. I've got the whole DVD.

who was roddick playing?

If we can find out, then we can determine whether it is real or not.

It's obviously fake, but also interesting how the marketing boffins leverage on his strength (in this case, the serve) and popularity to tie-in power with an energy drink.

But it also goes to show that Powerade also has a good advertising firm which has quite a number of people fooled!
