Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Australian Open, advantage Murray. He gets the job done on this surface.

French Open, no doubt, advantage Murray. Though if 09 FO Roddick turned up, who knows, maybe he could push Murray to 5. Some clown always does every year. Hed be more than capable.

Wimbledon - Advantage Roddick. Though I must say, Murray peak played in a better top heavy Grass era.

US Open - Advantage Roddick.

WTF - Equal chances here. Maybe ADV Roddick with his serve.

How do you see it going down?

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Roddick with less talent has won a slam before Murray did and if Federer wasnt around Andy would have 4-5 GS.



Stronga,Monfils,DelPo,Nalbandian,Berdych,Gulbis,Ha as and Djokovic are the players I support the most.

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

roddick mentally is so under rented its not funny

murray is a better talent but not mentally

if both guys give it 100% i think murrays excellent return of serve wins it

but murray is incapable of playing well at slam finals it seems- hope im proved wrong and he wins one

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Peak Roddick was 2003 when he had one of the top 5 forehands. Woulda been a tough test for Murray anywhere off clay.

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

In my unbiased opinion, peak Roddick beats the pants off of Muzzyface on every surface.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

AO: Murray
FO:Murray on kneecaps would win even in the damn dark
Wimbledon depends on which Roddick shows up.09 Roddick >>>> Murray but 2010;2011;2012 Murray >>>>>>>> Roddick
USO: 2011;2012 Murray >>>>>>>>>>>>> Roddick

Post Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Peak Murray? We haven't ever seen peak Murray, so we'll say 2011/2012 Murray for now. Peak Roddick was nothing very special.

Australian Open: Murray wins in 4.
French Open: Murray wins in 3, easy.
Wimbledon: Hmmmm, hard one. It'll be a 5 setter. I see Murray edging it.
US Open: Murray in 4.

Murray is far better on clay, better on hardcourt and around the same as peak Roddick on grass.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 592-171...
TITLES: 38 and counting...

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

hard court - it really depends. If AO or European hard court, I'd say Murray. In US, I'd give it to Roddick but it'd be very close.
clay - it'd be a hilarious beatdown from Murray.
grass - this would be the tough one. Roddick had to be at absolute peak level to beat a not-peak level Murray at 2009 Wimbledon. If Murray is at peak level, I think he would have the edge on grass.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

The Brian Baker Story. Proof that truth is stranger than fiction... until Hollywood buys the rights and proceeds to keep screwing the script up.

Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Both have very little talent. I give the edge to Roddick based on achievements, eventhough his slam was a fluke he did reach no.1.

Everything about Murray is awful, from his game, to his achievements, to his bad attitude and ugly personality. He is a born loser and will die a loser.

Mona Barthel will win 50 slams
