    roddick is 65/1 to win aus open. though he probably wont win, he looks under rated after fed's performance.

    roddick currently serving close to 70% in his first two matches, with high no. of aces and unreturnables.

    if he serves very well, could be hard to beat on this surface imo. has a good record at aus open.

    needs to get past wawrinka/monfils though.

    but that huge howitzer serve...it looks good now.

    after feds performance?
    don't you mean simon's performance, there was nothing wrong with feds performance today, simon just played unbelievable, fed looked better than roddick anyway today, simon is a much tougher opponent than kusnitsyn, i thought roddick looked pretty dreadful off the ground tbh just a serve isn't going to get it done, cant see him getting past fed if they meet int he quarters.

    Roddick has nothing off the ground but I actually like his combination of serving big and then pushing in rallies.

    he's got to get past haase to which I think will show if he's willing to get aggressive enough to win a major again

    however no matter how fed is playing if Roger reaches a grand slam QF vs. Roddick I don't see him allowing himself a loss

    Umm yeah.

    Fed looked fine. Simon was NEVER winning that match. He did get to even, but Fed looked fine.

    The most interesting part was that Simon looked gassed at the end.
