Which is funnier...

...Davydenko on grass or Roddick on clay?

Serious question, not bashing either player. Just both of them look...lost out there.

Re: Which is funnier...

This thread would make some sense if Davydenko wasnt coming off a straight sets 3rd round win.

Well, Andy has made the 3rd round once, which in itself is an achievement for him.

Re: Which is funnier...

Andy's game has changed since he first came on tour. He has actually got worse on clay, he used to have an explosive baseline game that was quite adaptable to clay, now he can't do much other than serve. I'd say he's worse on clay than Davydenko is on grass at the moment, but on terms of career, Roddick has done more on clay.

Re: Which is funnier...

The fact that you're completely unaware that there are players worse than Davydenko on grass and worse than Roddick on clay.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Am I completely unaware? That's news to me. I just find it funny that 2 players, who are in the top 5, can be completely exposed by a change of surface in a day and age where surfaces have become remarkably similar.

I think it may be you who are completely unaware of the context of the thread. I'm sure #956 in the world is worse than Roddick and Davydenko on every surface. Does it matter or are you posting for the sake of posting and being heard?

Re: Which is funnier...

roddick on clay...but he really used to be better when he didnt get as flustered as he does now on the surface. His fh has shown signs of being back this wimbledon, but until i see him go for it more consistently...its too soon.

I like his body language. He has always has that winners mentality about him even if his game doesnt always show it.

Let's see how your logic pans out: Roddick has won some clay titles, which by definition means he's not as completely hopeless on the clay as MTF tards like to believe, and Davydenko is into the fourth round of Wimbledon, which means he's not as inept on grass as he maybe thought he was. Are you posting dumb threads just for the sake of posting and being heard?
