    I believe it was scheduled for today. Interesting to see how Roddick plays.

    I bet he hasn't touched a racket since the US Open.

    Nice to see Daniel Nestor commentating....wonder if he feels awkward when the guy beside him is gloating about his achievements.

    Champions love to have anyone talk about their accomplishments especially when it's broadcast to a wide viewing audience.

    Serena playing terrible. Radwanska not being aggressive but she's got 5-0. Maybe if Serena stays asleep Andy and Milos will be on soon!

    WOW.

    This is beyond pathetic.

    Serena is not even trying. Maybe they should give them microphones atleast they could get crowd laughing.

    Anga leading 5-0 and about to serve.

    Is Roddick hamming it up or are those grunts real?

    This is proof Canadians are tough. Two of the hardest servers in history and they didn't even put up nets!

    They really need to raise the walls where the audience sits or at least something that will block the balls so it wouldnt hit the audience. 3 people got hit already

    In front of my computer, obviously
    Roddick played in the WTT Smash Hits event with Elton John in October, and kind of hobbled around because he hurt himself a little bit getting ready for it. If he's going to keep playing these high dollar exos, he's going to have to hit once or twice a week, every week, and not consider his daily golf games to be training.

    Assuming that this was the tried and tested formula of splitting the first two sets and actually playing the super-tiebreaker, then this result is extremely surprising. Considering that he seemed to actually miss a couple of easy rally balls early on (a few of his 'Oh my god's sounded legitimately horrified/stunned) he might have really wanted to make up for a very tepid start.

    I forgot that was going to happen.

    Sounds like everyone had a good time.

    Thanks for the coverage. :)

    It was an exo, typical doing impressions, having a good time, not too serious.

    I disagree. It was kinda depressing watching it. They were talking about Roddick's shoulder is not the same anymore. Raonic was hitting 220 plus to entertain the crowd. Roddick was hitting 160-180 kph the whole match.

    He just lost all his firepower.

    well he is only retired like 2 months or so so he is basically still an active player. in a year or 2 he will likely play a little worse.
