He definitely could have upset Roddick but gave it away in the end with unforced errors and double faults. As usual Roddick is let off the hook.

Naw, I think he just choked. He got nervous and played poorly at the end, giving the match to lucky Roddick on a silver platter. I dont think he wanted to though, he just did.

or maybe we just finally saw why he was ranked 120 in the world

you really weren't expecting him to close out the match were you?

No I wasnt, when a lower ranked player is playing unbelievably for most of the match, it is just funny how they never can do that in the final stages. It is almost as if they start to think.

Anyway I think Andreev will take Roddick out later today. This match will have worn on him physicaly and mentaly, and Andreev is a great young player.

He is only 11 months younger than Roddick. I am not so sure why you are certain he will take out Roddick. Before Wimbledon his grass court play this year includes a 2nd round loss in Queens club to Chris Guccione and a first round loss to Karlovic at Nottingham. Not exactly impressive.

I am not certain he will take Roddick out, but he has a good chance if he plays as well as he has at Wimbledon so far. I never said he was much younger than Roddick, I said he is a great young player, that is all. Roddick is clearly vurnerable and there for the picking, he is there for Andreev to pick off, if he has the nerves to do it, and I think he will.

I think he was told to lose, otherwise he would not be allowed in main draws.
No comment, other than to preserve the original comment itself for posterity.
