You get the idea that Roddick has improved significantly as a player. I didn't see Roddick win Dubai, but from the comments you read, you'd definitely get the impression that the guy went up a level or two in his play. And then I watch him at IW and Miami and not surprisingly he's still the same old clown that can't hit a drive backhand, has no approach shots, no volleys, can't hit a ball off the top of the bounce, and struggles to do anything on the run. None of my critical comments come out of dislike for a player, and I wanted Roddick to win this match, but to say that anything but Roddick's serve was keeping him in this match is giving his game undeserved respect. And thus my impression is that people are watching highlights and not entire matches.
