Poll: Do you think Roddick will be more remembered than Murray?

I see them having similar academic careers..maybe a slam or two each, a few slam final losses to Federer each..

I just think Roddicks personality and media friendliness, and almost certainty to enter tennis commentary and the like after his competitive career will mean Roddick will be much more fresh in our minds in 20 years than Murray.

What do you guys think?

Which Andy will you remember more?

"I did not play my best tennis, no? And..that is what enable him to win..to win this match no? "

Re: Poll: Do you think Roddick will be more remembered than Muray?

Of course its Roddick. 1(and still counting)>0. He will also be remembered for his good looks, charisma, and his big serve.

Andy Roddick

I will go with Murray because Roddick will suffer from the comparison with his compatriot Agassi and Sampras.

In terms of results,Murray will be remembered more. He is all ready better in Masters 1000 events,he will win that Slam one day for sure and will pass +30 ATP titles mark

With a very weak field of players today,Highlander will stay in Top 10 as long as Roddick was

Roddick will be remembered for that 2009 Wimbledon final, and also because he has a slam.

But if hes being constantly compared, doesnt that mean he will be discussed, and therefore remembered?

I'm sure the British media will never allow tennis fans to forget Andy Murray.

The question is pointless until they have both ended their careers and can be sensibly compared.

No, because you just can't forget how much of a whiner Murray is. He'll be forever imprinted in our minds. His gargantuan chokes we'll be remembered eternally as well.
