How somebody who shares the name with Rusedski could be taken seriously

Re: Is Isner better right now than Roddick has ever been?

Roddick's peak is far above Isner, so no. That said, Isner is better when it comes to personality and is a treat to watch when he's in form, unlike Roddick.

Also, Isner in Big 4? Murray says hello.

Re: Is Isner better right now than Roddick has ever been?

Not until he proves he can do it at Slams. Which is a problem for a man his size...he is physically depleted by the time the first week ends if he gets that far. His body just cannot handle that many best-of-5 matches in a row.

Re: Is Isner better right now than Roddick has ever been?

that's a joke, Isner right now is nowhere even close to as good as ROddick has been. he has at moments been practically unbeatable, nearly that way at Wimbledon in 2009 and periods in 2003/2004 he was just amazing. whoever said Isner is as good is just a tool who does not know what they speak of

Djokovic 2011 yeah but Djokovic 2007/2008 no way. Roddick at prime is extremely underrated and the only reason his talent at the time and the great height of his talent was ignored is mainly due to the fact Federer was so often across the net and on the front of newspapers.

when the best player of all time is in your generation it makes you look worse typically. Roddick at his prime was insane from the baseline with powerful groundstrokes and a pretty great net game- add that to his insane serve (arguably one of the best of all time) and it's clear that Isner has no chance against prime Roddick in any fashion and even Djokovic outside of 2011 would probably lose. I think prime Roddick can beat anyone but prime Federer and it just is an unlucky circumstance, Roddick's career, that he came to heights right when Federer did
