Andy Murray - a reverse Roddick career?

Startling comparisons:

roddick: won his first ever grand slam final (at the US open), he then went on reach 4 further finals, losing all of them. In total, 1 grand slam win out of 5 finals.

murray: loses his first 4 finals, then when he reached his 5th final, he wins (again, at the US open). In total, 1 grand slam win out of 5 finals.

- both defeated by federer on at least 3 grand slam finals
- both defeated by federer at wimbledon
- both took federer to 4 sets on one of their grand slam finals meeting

and heres one last evidence of this 'reverse-ness' of their careers, in their sole grand slam tournament win, they were both taken to 5 sets at one stage, difference is roddick came from behind 2 sets to win, whereas murray was 2 sets up and almost ended up losing.

Thoughts guys?

Personally I have a feeling that this will be murray's one and only grand slam, further solidifying this 'reverse-roddick' career theory. Roddick's career peaked at the very beginning, whereas I think that Murray has already peaked at his 'end' (i.e no more grand slam finals for him, which lets be honest is plausible when you think that he had a lot of luck in winning the US open, nadal will be back, del GOATro will be back, berdych will be back in windless conditions, federer is still around, djokovic AKA serbinator will be definitely be back)

Re: Andy Murray - a reverse Roddick career?

The only 'reverse' thing is the order they have won and lost their finals. Other things are similarities

Not to mention that Murray will win more Slams.

Roger that general.

I'm just waiting to see how will he speak about Nadal. Will he glorify him or bash him? But it's a double account for sure...

The Nuroejaculitus vials are ready just in case.

You only need to look at his avatar and understand his username to know he hates Nadull's huts, ie he's a good human being .

Negative lieutenant.

This could be a cunning disguise as a way to infiltrate the Fedeisians tardbase.

Nuroejaculitius vials are being prepared by General MwEtWez as we speak just in case.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

End da Game?! Please tell me you are a reverse Start da Game. Then you could become one of the best posters here


as for rodduck vs mugray yeah I dunno. Murrays career is unlike Roddicks far from over. He could still claim more slams. If he claims more slams his career is much more like his coach, Lendl, in that he first lost a lot of finals, then as an older and wiser player found the winning way.
