    Can Simon do it again? I saw some of the highlights of the Henman match. Most bizarre match I have ever seen. Timmy wins the 1st seven games to win the 1st set. Simon wins the next 7 games to win the 2nd set. Timmy was up a break in the 3rd set but blew it. He smashed his racquet after he shook hands with the enigmatic Greul. This guy is not that good. I think he put some kind of voodoo spell on his opponents. Richard Vach from Tennis-X.com is actually picking Greul to win. He's the same guy that picked Haas to upset Federer and Safin to beat Henman.

    It's hard to say. I just made $40,000 (virtual cash, lol) on Greul over Henman, but Roddick's power may prove decisive. Greul said he especially wanted to play Roddick and will be very motivated, so who knows. Too close to call, with Roddick's recent poor form.

    lol. Let's think this through. Tim Henman beat Lleyton Hewitt (who is definitely in a recession with his career and play) and also beat Marat Safin (who has the consistency of flaked cheese). Henman bageled Greul in the first set then... disappeared in the next two.

    So, I don't see any possible reason why Roddick won't take this. Roddick in straights.

    I've never seen Greul play, but Roddick will blow him away.

    I picked Greul to lose in two, BUT, and this is a huge butt :), he is a very streaky player. He hit some incredible shots against Henman in the second set. That wasn't all Henman's unforced errors. When Greul is on, he is as good as the best. Reminds me of Bagman at the top of his game.

    I can't stand Roddick any longer, but maybe he can act like an adult this time out.

    If a guy can be on tour since 2000, not win a single ATP match till a few days ago and then beat a Top5 player then I really don't know....actually, I do. The whole Top 10 should retire.
    Roddick better bagle this guy.

    Tennis is a really weird game.

    Hey, he won over three difficult tasks!

    Schrichapan (the 'on fire' one we're seeing now), Hrbaty (always a fighter) and Henman (he may be a little old, but he's still Henman, and he took down Safin and Hewitt) are no Donald Young, Carlos Berlocq and Horacio Zeballos (a "kinda friend" of mine here in Mar del Plata who's like #950)

    I don't mind seeing an upset tonight :)

    Roddick said his serve was starting to click and he does seem to be trying to be more aggressive with the forehand. My vote is a win for Arod.

    Some amazing stats about Gruel. If you had wagered $100.00 on him and rolled over your winnings into his other matches, then you would be up about $6,876.10
    If Gruel wins today, then you would be up about $47,367.33 with that same $100.00 wager. 1st round +370, 2nd round +285, 3rd round +280, 4th round +589.

    I missed it myself, I started watch 1-0 in the 3rd. When I think it just came on after Champ's League.

    Roddick broke Greul and was yelling something, it looked like at Greul and there was a staredown.

    Greul blew it in the 3rd set by committing too many unforced errors. It would have been nice if Greul won but at least Greul got a set which is more than what most people thought he could do. Greul's cinderella story comes to an end.
