Case in Point.

I finished typing the last entry and turned back to the TV just in time to see Roddick lose.

Why? He let the other guy get in his head. Not to take anything away from Baghdatis, because the guy is obviously talented, but Roddick clearly has more firepower and didn't use it. He got on the defensive and let the guy chip away at him.

I hope that Roddick can pull it together and grab some better results this year. He has trained incredibly hard, has a new coach, and everything seems to be in its right place; but there are a lot of sharks out there, and if you lose that mental strength for a second, you lose to an unseeded player in early rounds.

At least he has his "bikini brigade" to cheer him up.
