Top seed Andy Roddick progressed to his third final of the year on Friday at the International Raiffeisen Grand Prix.

Roddick, who has not lost a set this week, held a 6-2 2-0 lead against David Sanchez when the eighth seed from Spain stopped the match with a muscle strain.

Lets see if he can win this time..Its about time he started winning tournaments now, as we have said before he has the right stuff to make his mark in the game.

Andy Roddick sent out a warning to the rest of the French Open field on Saturday by hammering Nikolay Davydenko in the final of the Internationaler Raiffeisen Grand Prix in Austria.

Roddick, whose previous title win was in Houston last year, beat the Russian Davis Cup player 6-3 6-2.

"It's been more than a year, this feels great," said Roddick. "It was important to take the initiative from the beginning and control the tempo in each point. I was just trying to play good consistent tennis."

Roddick jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead and then held serve the rest of the way to win the first set, losing only five points on his serve.

He played consistent tennis from the backcourt, mixing up the pace during groundstroke rallies and throwing in a few serve-and-volley points on his serve.

Roddick then went up two breaks in the second and when Davydenko broke back for 4-2 the 20-year-old American quickly stopped the Russian from gaining any momentum by going up 5-2.

"I'm really happy to win this event. It was great to get alot of matches here - and a lot of wins - in preparation for the French Open," he said.

"Match toughness is a lot different than training. "I'm in great form right now, without question and I'm really happy to have my first win in Europe."

Roddick now owns six career ATP titles.

Its seems like Roddick cruised through this match,i wouldn't be surprised if he can get to the Fench Open final with the way he has been playing lately..

Andy Roddick fired down 29 aces on his way to a titanic final-set tie-break victory over Andre Agassi in the Stella Artois Championships semi-finals on Saturday.

And the 20-year-old American hammered a serve clocked by the on-court speed gun at 149mph - which if ratified equals Greg Rusedski's world record.

Roddick saved a match point before fashioning a 6-1 6-7 7-6 win which ranked as his first in five attempts over a man he counts as a boyhood hero and it could hardly have been more thrilling.

Roddick crashed through the first set in just 19 minutes as Agassi struggled to cope with his younger rival's booming serves and relentlessly consistent passing shots.

149!!!!!



my best serve ever in a legit match was 116 mph and I pratically threw my arm out! Roddick is no bigger than me so serving that fast to me is pure amazement. What a great player

That was a nice showing by Andy yesterday as he beat Andre Agassi. This could be a very good sign of things to come at Wimbledon. Andy could win this tournament when he plays in the final. I do believe that it is agaisnt Sebastian Grosan. But i am not to sure about it. 149 mph now that is what i am talking about. I wonder if Andre even got his raquet on that one. Andy tied the world record which was help by Greg Rudseki.

Yep Ben i agree we have been saying that he is a great player in the making for weeks so it looks like he is starting to Perform..


Andy Roddick blew past Sebastian Grosjean today to win the Stella Artois Championship and announce himself as a major contender for the Wimbledon crown.

The American 20-year-old took just an hour to obliterate the Frenchman 6-3 6-3 for his seventh career title and his first on grass.

Roddick, who had equalled Greg Rusedski's world record 149mph serve during his epic semi-final victory over Andre Agassi, troubled the speed gun again and gave Grosjean just one break point opportunity through the entire match.

He hammered down consecutive 146mph and 147mph efforts and even clocked one at 154mph - though sadly it rocketed into the net.
I siad he could serve faster but a 154mph serve oh my god if that had gone over jeeze...


A great win for roddick which sets him up nicely for wimbledon..!

Woah that is one fast serve, i wonder what would have happened if that landed in. It is like that one commerical where the ball lands in the ground. Good win for andy especially going to Wimbeldon in a couple of weeks. Hewitt won that tournament last year, and he went onto winning Wimbeldon.

Andy Roddick began his preparation for next month's US Open with a straight-sets victory in the final of the RCA Championships in Indianapolis.

The American top seed defeated second seed Paradorn Srichaphan of Thailand 7-6 (7/2) 6-4 to win his third title of the year.

But it was his first in the United States since the US Men's Clay Court Championship in May 2001 although six of his eight career tournament wins have come on American soil.

Roddick fired 16 aces with a serve that reached 135 miles per hour and got fired up on court.

He screamed and smacked a ball out of the stadium when a sponsorship sign fell and interrupted a rally and argued with the chair umpire on an overruled serve by Srichaphan later in the set.

But Roddick won the first-set tie-breaker comfortably and gained the only break he needed in the second set, taking Srichaphan's third service game.

He finished with a 37-12 advantage in winners while raising his record against Srichaphan to 3-1.


Roddick said: "We were both serving pretty well; the wind was bothering us both a bit on our returns.

"It was good to get through the tie-break and get that break in the second set.

"It was great to win here in Indianapolis. It's a great way to start the hard court season. I look forward to coming back here next year."

Andy Roddick has made himself unofficial favourite to win the upcoming US Open in New York with his searing form on the North American hard court circuit.

The 20-year-old American has moved to within two wins of topping the ATP Champions Race for the first time by overwhelming Mariano Zabaleta of Argentina 6-1 6-2 to reach the semi-finals of the Masters Series in Cincinnati.

Roddick's success against an opponent ranked inside the top 40 took less than an hour, and maintained a record of having lost only twice - to Roger Federer and Tim Henman - since June.
