I would change my vote now... At the time the thread was started, I thought and voted for 3. Now I'm pretty sure it'll be 0-1...

I'd like to see one more Ivanisevic type run to the Wimbledon crown so he can retire in peace.

But at least he has 1 slam.
Couldn't agree more. I'm no where near a fan or liker of Roddick but I do think him never winning Wimbledon is perhaps one of the saddest things in sport. But yes, it's actually nice that he did win a slam, would have been beyond awful if he didn't.

Realistically if he gets himself into a decent shape again he could make another QF at Wimbledon or the US Open, but even that seems to be pushing it at the moment.
My thoughts exactly. Not sure if he even has the motivation to go for one last, decent try.

Heya!

Seriously though...this guy isn't done yet. I sense a Goran Ivanisevic moment around the corner

The way Roddick's ranking is plummeting - and unless he does something decent at IW/Miami, because it's not going to get any better in the clay season - that might well happen.

Re: How many deep Slam runs does Roddick have left in him?

Realistically, zero. I feel he is done. However, it wouldnt be a shock if he pulls off one more fine run at Wimbledon or even USO.
But I am not betting on that. Its sad, coz I do wish he had won a wimbledon title, it will be amazing if he can pull one off still but unlikely.

Re: How many deep Slam runs does Roddick have left in him?

I think 0-1. Wimbledon most likely.

But I'm sure he has countless deep runs left with Brooklyn.

Re: How many deep Slam runs does Roddick have left in him?

No doubt he'll get some cake walk draws and serve his way to another few QFs. With that serve and the amount of clowns especially at Wimbledon its pretty inevitable.

Re: How many deep Slam runs does Roddick have left in him?

Don´t know what is deep run, but 0, his only chance is Wimbledon QF under very good circumstances, but that´s it. No SF for sure and other QF don´t think.

His serve isn't that great these days though. Definitely isn't what it used to be.
