roddick for wimbledon

the great american hope roddick will win wimbledon in 2004, heard it here first!

who can stop him?

Hewitt? LOL
Henman? LOL
maybe fish? LOL

federer will be tough but if roddick plays his best the swiss mans talent will be blown away. you dont return 153 mph serves even if your houdini

after a 3 year break americans will be back in charge on the lawns of wimbledon

Re: roddick for wimbledon

Why is Henman "LOL"? Henman is THE threat this year. I certainly hope he is in Andy's half and not Roger's.

Re: roddick for wimbledon

henman should stay at home and drink his tea if he meets roddick
the pom has no answers to top players at slams

Don't kid a kidder.

Roger is far and away the favorite for Wimbledon. There's no one on the horizon who looks to challenge him for the title. Henman is Roger's red herring. He's no more afraid of him than he is of Karol Beck.

Re: roddick for wimbledon

* Roddick & Federer are clearly the 2-main favourites!!

@@ Others contenders/darkhorses: Hewitt, Safin, Nalbandian, Henman, Agassi, Grosjean, Moya, Philippoussis, Schalken, Nadal, J Johannson, Andreev, Melzer, Malisse, Lopez, Escude...

Of course there are other big names like Ferrero & Coria BUT don't think they could win>_<.

Karol Beck beat Tim! That's why Roger is more afraid of Beck than Tim.

Re: roddick for wimbledon

Trolls shouldn't be fed, but it's so tempting...
you do realise of course that most of Roddick's fast serves (150+mph) have been returned? It's not usually speed that beats the opposition, it's more down to placement, spin and whether your action is readable. And unfortunately for Roddick, Federer can usually anticipate his serves very well.

Yeah, and Federer isn't at all afraid of Beck, so even less afraid of Henman.

Re: roddick for wimbledon

the sand! ah haaaa

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

what a einstein
i didnt see any 153 mph serves being returned
funny how i didnt see many 140 mph serves returned in queens. federer looked brilliant because he played nobodies in hale.
roddick has never served at his best against roger but he will be ready this year

Re: roddick for wimbledon

There are not many people who can stop Andy on grass this year. However, saddly, I don't see him come up with ideas to beat Federer. Even Henman can be a threat, but I think he will be more likely to put up a fight and lose in five sets, like his soccer country men. Safin and Nalbandian can also cause trouble for him.
I hope the final will be Federer vs. Roddick, and Federer happens to have a bad day.
