Roddick first to qualify!

Honestly, who would have thought?!! And in the Federer group! The American rolled over Gonzalez 6-1, 6-4 continues his great play dowards the DC final. Right now he is in an unique situation. Federer will play him on Friday for a spot in the SF. Roddick is already there and the pressure is completely off. Will Roddick be able to shock the world, sending the 16-1 RR record Rog back to Switzerland? Maybe…

Table shows that Roddick is through. Federer should beat Roddick because Gonzo will play Davydenko who hasn’t won yet. If we turn it around Davydenko can actually qualify if he destroys Gonzo and Roddick takes down Federer. Once again, sets and games will tell who gets it, but I honestly think it’s an open race. Really depends on Roddick’s ability to play on a high level (like last year, but this time make the smash shots) against Federer and beat him, and really depends on the level Gonzo is able to produce against Nikko. Today’s level was really rock bottom, especially after Monday’s match.

I think that Roddick and Federer will qualify. Still think Davydenko can pull a win, but even then Federer might have enough sets to get ahead of the Russian.
