How many more Slams would Roddick have if there was no Federer?

Usually I hate if questions...But this I wonder:

How many Slams would Roddick have without Fed?

Roddick is really kind of a poor guy. Everytime he is in good shape he runs into a hot Federer and gets destroyed.

I personnaly think Roddick would have at least 2-3 more Slams and would be considered one of the best players of the last 10 years, if there was no Federer.

many kinda like three or four but anyway he got lucky in the only slam he has and its not like he had usually beaten the very top player to get to the last stages in slams .

6? seems a bit much to me....it is not plausible to assume that he would have won everytime had he faced somebody other then Federer.

Disagree, i think Hewitt would have won Wimbledon 2004 & 05 [plus USO 04 & 05] if he didn`t come up against FED there
Hewitt loved playing A.Rod in big matches @ slams, so if those finals had been Lleyton vs Andy - pretty sure Hewitt would have won the majority

Re: How many more Slams would Roddick have if there was no Federer?

At least 2 more I think

Was taken out;

Wimbledon 03 (semi), 04 (final), 05 (final)
USO 06 (final), 07 (qf)
AO 07 (semi), 09 (semi)

I often wonder about the same situation for Lleyton - didn't meet Roger in as many latter stages of slams, but was still in great form in a number of them;

AO 04 (R4)
Wimbledon 04 (qf), 05 (semi), 08 (r4)
USO 04 (final), 05 (semi)

Legendary Lleyton Hewitt

& the rest of the Aussie armada

Rafael Nadal
Guillermo Coria

Taylor Dent

I would put Roddick as favorite anytime against Hewitt on grass, I think Roddick is better on grass than Hewitt.

3 or 4, I am sure of RG 2005-2007, but not so sure he would have beaten Djokovic in RG 2008.

well its a matter of opinion, Hewitt won 6 grass titles [including Wimby 02], and lost to Federer 3 times @ Wimby [04,05,08].. Roddick won 4 grass titles, and lost to Federer 3 times @ Wimby [03,04,05]! <>Lleyton also has a fantastic grass record in Davis Cup, plus holds a 6-3 H2H over Roddick overall, with a 3-1 H2H @ the slams

This is why you have to look past the slams themselves. it's not everything.




A lot of things go into the definition of a career. A lot goes into to being truly great.
There are always going to be dominant players in the game.

Re: How many more Slams would Roddick have if there was no Federer?

Roddick was lucky he even got the finals of these slams. It was such a weak era then. Had he not gotten a dream draw at the AO, he would have never made the quarters. He got unbelievably lucky. He wasn't even supposed to win USO 03, but obviously he got important points from some very questionable line calls against Nalbandian. And then Ferrero who was exhausted in the final. That's not to say Roddick wouldn't have beaten Ferrero, but he should've lost to Nalbandian had the conditions been fair.

Re: How many more Slams would Roddick have if there was no Federer?

Roddick never will win anymore Grand Slam, if there are some guys called Federer and Nadal on the draw, they're both mentally stronger than Andy, nowadays I honestly don't see Andy lifting any GS throphy on his arms.
I respect Andy as a player but I don't think he deserves to have 3 or 4 GS titles, apart from serve what else is this guy? He's average returner and groundstroker.
He has what he deserves 1 GS won to eternal dissapointer named Ferrero.
But no more...and he'll end his career with that only.

Re: How many more Slams would Roddick have if there was no Federer?

He's have about 4. But was a "mugish" era with Fed in, would've be a complete joke era with just A-rod and Hewitt competing for slams.

Go Andy!

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