Can Andy Roddick Win a Slam in 2011

Andy Roddick can win a slam in 2011? He looks pretty promising so far in Brisbane. And honestly he always seems like he trys very hard and reallly wants to have more than he's gotten and have more of a legacy. Like when he lost Wimbledon final for third time, you could just tell how much it meant. And i know these things mean a lot to ALL players, but certainly some work harder and are more focused for than others. But i would love so much if anyone broke the dominance of nadal/Fed Grand slam wins, if it was him who did it this year. it looks like he's got a mad hunger in his eyes for it

Re: do you think ....

Nope. Being broken every single match is not a good sign. Plus he didn't face any top15 so far.

Certainly, he has the heart...all he needs is to be more aggressive on the forehand and a draw that evades Federer.

I think he'll post another SF appearance in Melbourne, but it would be a real stretch for him to go any further down under. When Wimbledon rolls around, however, he'll surely be one of the five guys that could conceivably take home the trophy. I doubt he will, though.

As Isaac Newton once said:

"No."

I think it's too late for him, but who knows... maybe he'll finally get that Wimbledon title?

Re: Can Andy Roddick Win a Slam in 2011

No. He'll have to play out of his skin, hope for some defeats to other players that can take him out and maybe a kind draw for him to win a slam. He'll probably make like 4th-SF in 3/4 slams this year though.

Re: Can Andy Roddick Win a Slam in 2011

No way. Even reaching a semi final will be very tough.

Tsonga - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Gasquet - F.Lopez - Monfils - Haas - Janowicz - Youzhny - Tomic - Hewitt - Gulbis - Mahut - Haase - Schoorel - Sijsling - Huta Galung - De Bakker - Van der Duim - Westerhof - Middelkoop - Koolhof - Lootsma - S&T. Griekspoor - Sels - Van Rijthoven

All time: Safin - Schalken - Krajicek - Sluiter - Verkerk - Henman - Ivanisevic - Nalbandian - Ferrero - Philippoussis - Sampras - Siemerink - Blake - F.Gonzalez - Ancic - Haarhuis/Eltingh

Still supporting all the Dutchies despite their great choking skills
Looking forward to the Dutch Futures and Challengers this summer!

Re: Can Andy Roddick Win a Slam in 2011

Dude has all the heart in the world, but it's still not gonna get it done.
Doing well in the early rounds of a 250 isnt much of a "sign".
