    Pavel's just old. Roddick's play has been erratic today--it's kept Pavel in the first and third sets.

    Good think Andy pulled out that TB, he may have needed to find another coach :)

    Yes, Pavel isn't what he was 4 years ago, when he beat ARod, but he's creating him huge probs now ...

    Pavel knows more tennis than ARod and that won't be simple if he (Pavel) doesn't tire out. Well, he just broke ARod ...

    How did Roddick get broken on the first game in the 5th set after having 40-15. Roddick has a big chance of losing here unless a mirical happens.

    looks like Roddick's brother as coach is paying dividends already.

    BTW, the match is shown live in Romania on the main national TV (and it's of course night-time there)

    I'd like to see more of that in US and Canada, but imagine NBC or ABC doing that ...

    Does Pavel has good returns or is Andy serving badly? He had 17 aces so far but, Pavel keeps breaking him.

    he beat ARod in 2001 in Montreal no probs, guess he sees better the ball on returns than others.

    ARod needs some heroics here and quick

    Andy has called the trainer out for an injury to his hand. He has also thrown up during changeovers twice. Something odd is happening to him out there.

    Not that uncommon in hot & humid conditions. Roddick has thrown up at this venue before a few years ago. So has Agassi, I think.

    It's 60 in La Jolla - I don't think it ever gets above 80 there.

    I don't have TTC, but the stats as they are being updated on the Davis Cup site look bad for Roddick today. At least matchwise (I haven't broken them down set for set yet).

    38% points won on Second Serve...

    However, looks like he was fighting hard at 5-2, since he kept up on the deuce points.

    Game, set, match, Pavel.

    Good show from the veteran, bad one from Roddick.

    when I saw on the serve diagram at the damn CD site that serve in the ad from Pavel, I knew it was over, it was too much into the corner I guess for ARod to return it

    this was a very important win for Pavel ...

    just like 4 years ago, he showed ARod who's the craftsman/master and who only plays with power ...

    Eww, I've just seen some screen shots of Andy's vomit festival. Not quite as neon colored as Murray's was at the USO, but still icky enough. Hope he feels better by Sunday. Hope James doesn't get all mental in the next match.

    2nd serve percentage, when you really need to play the ball, not just bash it.

    He will fire him anytime soon and beg Brad be his coach again. If this happens I hope Brad gives him an another chance.

    The meltdown continues - I'm sure it's bad coaching (lol), not that Roddick's lost enough off the forehand and serve to make his one-dimensional game vulnerable to even second-tier players.

    Andy was helped off court by a doctor at the end of the match. He may be headed for the hospital.

    Was just watching the Live Scores on the DC web site and was getting pretty frustrated with AR. However, after the fact, learning about how he might be sick, he put in a good effort to come back in the fifth set. Just didn't have quite enough. We'll see how he does on Sunday.

    James now with two break points in the fifth game of the first set.

    Wow, here i am saying Pavel sucks and the guy pulls this off:mrgreen: , alot of credit to Roddick for finishing the match but he should have won this match, even if he was sick, he needed just one damn set!

    I was really hoping they would let Robby Ginepri instead of Roddick. Roddick is really slipping, Ginepri is the best American player for now.
