I don't want to get too crazy, but I thought I'd start a thread about a Pro Player and his game. I watched Roddick/Lee at the SAP, and Roddick's game was a mess. First set, he seemed to be trying to get creative with the serve and twist it every which way. I saw him leave one groundstroke go by him. Second set, he hit three routine backhands in a row into the net. Next point, a backhand way long over the baseline. Then he seemed to adjust his position to play more forehands, and naturally Lee played wide to the open court. Roddick was late getting there, and had to go for a winner from out wide on the FH side. Missed it, smashed his racket. Essentially his serve saved him. He was talking to himself. Confidence seemed very low, nothing like the summer hardcourt seasons in 2003. Strategy or game plan was non-existent. Sliced a lot of backhands, but not really as part of a game plan. Didn't come to net once that I saw. Goldfine was taking notes, but does Roddick need a taskmater? He seemed better off with Gilbert keeping it simple. Play your strengths, get a break, close the set. Thoughtful replies based on what you've seen at the SAP, other than standard Haterade, that is?
