I Have To Ask... Does Roddick Have Any Chance?

Is there anything new you guys see in his game that can give Federer problems giving he gets that far. I mean this is probably going to be THE MATCH. Forget about it on anywhere else. Roddick's best surface and he now has Connors here for first time. Do you really see Roddick competing with Federer?

Re: I Have To Ask... Does Roddick Have Any Chance?

Everytime Roddick starts playing well, I get nervous as a Federer fan. That said, in this tournament, I feel better than I ever have despite Roddick's play about Roger having to play him. The only worry is about Roger's form after a 6 day break.

Re: I Have To Ask... Does Roddick Have Any Chance?

If he plays his game (with good serving) and is clutch he can win.
Federer is worse than last year while Roddick is better.

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

In my opinion, Roddick played much better during the US Open and AO.

Where has he been worse than last year?

No.

But if he doesn't serve well, Gasquet will put him out of his misery beforehand.

I think Gasquet can catch Andy off guard if he keeps taking these weird walkabouts.

He has already lost to guys not named Nadal.

He doesn't really look too much worse here at Wimbledon, though.

He'll beat Gasquet and lose to Federer.

Unless Federer has an awful day, there's just no way I can see Andy winning. He just can't hurt him during rallies. If I were him I'd just try and hit a winner off every ball, any rally lasting more than 3 strokes he's got about a 25% chance of winning.

Re: I Have To Ask... Does Roddick Have Any Chance?

I don't really know where Roddick would find the confidence, let alone the game, to beat him considering their previous meeting. Plus Federer just feels so at home on grass, mentally he's not the same player there. The only place where I'd say there would be a slightly bigger chance for him to win would be a very fast indoor court and hope federer has a bad receiving day. But you never know what can happen if Federer is really subpar he might be able to take advantage of it

Canas, Volandri and Nadal all play a similat game...only to varying levels.

Roddick is a complete opposite of them and his h2h says it all. Besides, I'd say that Roddick's form behind his serve isn't all that good. He wouldn't be top 20 (perhaps not even top 50) right now without that huge weapon.

He's only playing great in the slams now. He's not willing to give it his all in every tournament he plays and why should he? From what I've seen Federer is playing as well as he ever had while Roddick still needs to find his forehand. If they do meet in the SF's I hope it's a close match but I don't think it will be, sadly.
