Why not tonight?

You know, why not tonight for Andy Roddick to break his losing streak against Roger Federer? If he protects his serve like he's never protected it before, get into some breakers, grab a mini-break or two in said breakers and who knows? Now's the time to do it.

Following the live scoring on the Sony Ericsson Open Web site shows it's 4-4 now. The first breaker's only two games away!

Roddick, 7-6 (6), 7-6 (4). That's my pick and I'm sticking to it! And if I blow it, I won't write as long a post as I did explaining my bad Blake pick. Promise!

Hey Van

you're on a roll with the predictions. I think you need to start putting money on the games!

I'm pleased for Roddick. He really deserves last night's result.

He's a year younger that Federer. Do you think he's still got one more slam in him?

Hey Steve. That was a great win for A-Rod. Too bad he couldn't follow it up, though.

I've been assuming for a couple of years that he would've picked up another Slam by now, but it hasn't happened. Three of the four majors are perfect for him, so I think whether by dumb luck or what, he should be able to do it.
