Do you miss when Roddick was #2?

I'm not a Roddick fan but I can't help but reminisce when he was #2 behind Federer and they used to meet in finals. Now Nadal has been #2 for over two years and it doesn't look like Andy will get the spot back again (unless he can defeat Djoke/Nadal frequently). So my question is do you guys miss the times when it was Federer then Roddick right behind him or are you enjoying the Fedal rivalry?

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5

Nadal is clearly a better player though.

I miss when Roddick was a promising up and comer, but those days are long gone.

Nadal is a better player but on hardcourts Andy can still beat him if he played like he did at the US Open against Federer. I don't think he can beat Novak though (who is great on hardcourts and pretty good on other surfaces).

Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4

No - and Roddick was never really right behind Fed IMO.

Re: Do you miss when Roddick #2?

roddick last encounter with nadal on H/courts ended pretty badly, not sooo sure if roddick could beat nadal on that surface anymore, but on grass i think roddick would have the advantage because of his serve.
And no i don't miss roddick being number two he dosen't deserve it if he can't hold on to it.

yes. Roddick is a better player

Let's not talk history yet. He's still making it.

No

Roddick and Federer didnt have a rivalry.
Federer and Roddick had a pimp - bitch relationship.

Go Andy!

So very very proud to be a fan of Mr Andy Murray Wimbledon Champion 2013

No, Roddick's game is too one dimensional.

Re: Do you miss when Roddick #2?

It was a very brief period of time I think when he was #2 and Federer was #1, mainly parts of 2004 I guess.

In that time they only met in a handful of occasions, the Wimbledon final comes to mind and I can't remember what else, oh the hard court TMS before the USO. I didn't think Nadal would make such a big run for it and then do enough to stay #2 thereafter.

Re: Do you miss when Roddick was #2?

No, for the simple reason that there has never been a true rivalry between Roger and Andy - Andy was, is, and will always remain, Roger's pigeon!
