We were on the edge of our seats as the fifth set of that Cilic/Roddick quarterfinal went underway, not knowing whether the experience of the top-ranked American could get him out of that two-set hole he dug, or if the nothing-to-lose attitude of the Croatian newcomer would get him to his first major semi.
In the end, Roddick’s bothersome shoulder (he tweaked it near the end of his match against Gonzo) rendered two of his fingers numb, leading to a 7-6 (4), 6-3, 3-6, 2-6, 6-3 win for Cilic.
Subtle stripes: As you know, Andy is no Venus Williams; he’s perfectly content playing in plain, drab clothing. So you bet we were happy that he welcomed some bright stripes on the collar of his Lacoste performance polo.
No word yet on when this’ll go on sale. We’ll let you know as soon as we get info.
