Why are ESPN commentators surprised when Roddick pushes??

They air all of his matches, it's always the same shit. We do they always act surprised and even think that he'll consider playing from anything other than 10 feet behind the baseline. I mean, Lu looks like Soderling or Berdych out there

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

They just need to listen to themselves, they say it practically every time they do a Roddick match

Good question. Roddick always resorts to pushing. A big server usually isn't labeled a pusher. Roddick is the exception.

I think they are more surprised he is pushing against a guy who is pushing more than he is. If there was ever a match where Roddick should play aggressive this should be it. This is Monfils like.

Roddick's got nothing but a serve. At least on grass. They could be out there for awhile.

Oh yeah.. One guy kisses Roddick's ass but when it comes to Roger, no one has a problem when every commentator borderline sucks his schlong.

Roddick truly has one of the most horrible games to watch in the history of this sport.

Mary Jo: sometimes roddick just plays too safe. he has to flatten out his forehand
He hasn't hit a flat shot since 2001

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

You would think this would be the year he could rescue himself considering Andy and James aren't playing Davis Cup
