The Curious Case of J & J

I have been always baffled by the predictions of James Blake and Justin Gimelstob. They always pick Roddick to win Wimbledon and this year is no exception:

I really don't think Roddick has a chance. Can't beat Murray, can't beat Rafa or Fed. And there are a host of other guys that can take him out. Oh well.

I love how you always use Roddick to fill that empty space in your life. For a so called "hater", you do spend a lot of your time talking about him.

Please man. You've got no credibility with me. You are an online stalker.

Re: The Curious Case of J & J

it's totally expected. it'd be more baffling if they picked just about any other player.

he's their countryman, dc teammate, maybe even friend plus regardless of whether they mean it they gotta say it cuz it gives u.s. sportsfans who don't give a shit about non-u.s. athletes some reason to be interested in tennis/wimbledon

Even at the French, Gimbelstob picked Roddick over Monfils.

I wouldn't say it's a curious case after all.

yeah, cuz if he said, "roddick is gonna get his ass handed to him by this goofy french dude you never heard of," 45 of the 50 people watching on u.s. tv would turn the channel and watch something someone they know has a chance of winning

Re: The Curious Case of J & J

Do I think Roddick will win WImbledon, no. Do I think he' got a chance. Well he's probably got as much a of a chance as Soderling did to reach the FO final, oh wait.

YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS

Everybody's got a chance but a good chance like Blake said? um no! Roddick had his chances against Roger and didn't take them. I doubt he can win one. Though I admit I don't want him to miss Wimbledon so hopefully he is alright.

Must be some kind of inside joke between them.

Re: The Curious Case of J & J

ESPN Commentators are Roddick's propoganda machine. They always predict him to win and they talk about him even when he isn't playing that day.

Another Game for Milos

They are all Roddick fanboys.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

Re: The Curious Case of J & J

Blake said Roddick was clueless in Roddick's ESPN bio. It's obvious that Gimelstob and Blake are phoniest and the biggest Davis Cup opportunists. Who really takes this seriously? Except for desperate tennis snobs who want to prove that Murray and Federer are the best humans on tour, compared to Roddick.
