• Djokovic destroys Roddick at London Olympics

    Djokovic destroys Roddick at London Olympics Novak Djokovic takes care of Andy Roddick in two quick sets on Tuesday in London. Djokovic needs less than an hour to set up a meeting with Aussie veteran Lleyton Hewitt.

    Andy Roddick's relative hot streak was no match for Novak Djokovic in the second round of the London Olympics on Tuesday afternoon. Djokovic blasted 34 winners to a mere six unforced errors as he rolled 6-2, 6-1 in 54 minutes.

    Roddick held his first two service games in the opening set, but it was a disaster for him the rest of the way. The 29-year-old American dropped serve at 2-3 before being broken for the set when Djokovic struck a winner off the net cord.

    Djokovic dropped seven points on serve in the second after surrendering only three in the first, but he still never came close to getting broken. The second-ranked Serb set up match point by tracking down a Roddick drop shot in impressive fashion and he sealed the deal one point later.

    Roddick's only real chance was to dominate Djokovic in the serve department, but it was the No. 2 seed who almost tripled his opponent's ace count (14 to five). Djokovic did not commit a single double-fault and he also converted all four of his break-point opportunities. He will go up against Lleyton Hewitt for a spot in the quarterfinals.

Nole and Murray looking so sharp so far. Their semis match should be exciting as hell!

As soon as Roddick realized that Djokovic was going to return his serve, he fell apart. Pretty dismal from Roddick and very very solid from Djokovic.

Emiliano, I agree that the semi should be a real cracker. Looking forward to it!

Andy looked so good here in Atlanta....thought he would push Joker a little harder.

I thought so too, Scoot...maybe to even take a set. Serious bummer for the Americans.

nothing Roddick could do. He played fine.

However, fortunate result for all (including Americans), because it meant Bravo was able to show basically whole 3rd set of Tsonga-Raonic.
