MSNBC.com wrote:NEW YORK - The worst birthday of Andy Roddick’s life ended with three straight tiebreak losses and a shocking first-round exit from the U.S. Open against a player making his debut in the tournament.

Roddick, the champion two years ago and the No. 4 seed this year, fell 7-6 (4), 7-6 (8), 7-6 (1) on his 23rd birthday Tuesday night to Gilles Muller, the first man from Luxembourg to compete in the Open.

The 22-year-old Muller, ranked No. 68, outhustled, outmaneuvered and, most astonishingly, out-aced Roddick 24-17 to claim his second huge upset of the summer. In his first Wimbledon, he beat French Open champion Rafael Nadal.

Not too surprised at all. You see people come out of thin air and beat seeds occasionally. The seed has no idea about the guy he's playing. No background, no typical types of play, etc, etc.

A bit surprised you're shocked JT. You're a tennis player, so wouldn't you agree that you study your opponent ahead of time? I know I did when I played. Knew their strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, etc.

Playing someone cold (no book, nothing to study) isn't all that easy on the professional level I'm sure.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

No, I understand that it happens all of the time, but you have to admit that the Open has been Andy's tournament. He usually steps up big time when he's playing in Flushing.

Saw that too.

I hope he wins also. I'm still shocked Roddick is gone.

It was 7-6, 7-6, 7-6, right?
