    So I'm sort of half watching the Roddick-Beck match, but then, afterwards, Gimelstob went to the video "tenniscaster" or something to show all the things Roddick was doing right in the match, using video, drawings, and commentary.

    I really liked him slowing down Roddick's serve, for example, and showing how high his ball toss was, how long he kept his arm up, and how well he disguised the serve direction. This immediately helped in a match I played that night, and I got a much higher % of first serves in thinking about how to incorporate that into my game.

    I know Gimelstob gets a lot of grief on here, but I LOVED this feature, he was very knowledgeable, and I hope they keep going to it. Big differentiator for the serious fan.
