it certainly cant be ruled out.
 
strange things do happen in this game. roddick has nothing to lose at the moment.
 
what if roddick manages to bag the the first 2 sets in breakers?
 
can d-pot take the next 3 sets?
 
of course it is d-pot on paper but what if roddick has other ideas?

D pot is in for a shock  :) >>>>

You may be right. DelPo is ripe for the picking if he doesn't pick up his game.

Guys stop fantasizing. This is end of line for the Great Southern Ape. End of line!
Then we will fight in the shade.

Andy is in the round of 16!  Now if he can step it up a notch!  He will be in the quarters!  And that will be very interesting after that!

Del Po hasn't been playing well. Besides the last set and a half or so of last match, Andy's been playing great. Del Po should definitely be on upset alert.

Rafa is the FIRST to qualify for WTF this year! :D

andy is certainly capable of winning against del potro. all he needs is a good start... im thinking something like 6-4, 7-6, 3-6, 7-5  :gleam:

Well, Andy is playing great, and it seems like he has an extra motivation going on to his last tournament... So, he is playing more loose and just the way he wants, so that is a plus... I see D-Pot coming out on top, but you just can't leave Roddick out of this one.. It is going to be a tough one.

fognini won't be easy........

Eh. Forgive me if I don't quite believe you. You also said Roddick only played well at 2009 Wimbledon, so apparently he doesn't have to play well to make it to four other slam finals, winning one.

you seem to be nothing different than the typical stats obsessed fan........4 + 1 = 5 alright but 4 rabbits + 1 tiger =/= 5 wild animals........in your book a player must have played better in a tournament which he reached farther irrespective of opposition, conditions of play and his own level of play........
Marian Vajda to Novak Djokovic, "I saw you beat that man like I never saw no man get beat before, and the man KEPT COMING AFTER YOU! Now we don't need no man like that in our lives."

Andy looked completely gassed. He just isn't fit. I can't see him making an impression on DP's serve.

Trivia question that I don't know the answer to:  has there ever been a point in either total or open history, where there was no active American player who had won a grand slam?
Good luck on the court is nice to have, but it's usually extraneous when playing against Baker.

Looks like Andy (not Murray) pulled a 'Lewinsky' as his swan song-  close, but no cigar.
CONK da ball!!!
