Roddick’s  only win over Agassi  in their six meetings. The twelve years younger American needed to save a match point in the deciding tie-break with an out-wide service winner. Roddick equalled Rusedski’s record from 1998 in the fastest serve (149 mph). “I tried not to let Andre dictate the play,” Roddick said. “If you get in a rally with him, he’s going to school you. So when I had a good shot I tried to crack it pretty hard.” Roddick’s first event with Brad Gilbert as his coach. They’ll work together until the end of 2004.
