This. The concept of a match-up still eludes some.

Educating MTF clowns one post at a time.
So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Re: Which is the more embarrassing H2H, Ferrer/Fed or Roddick/Fed?

- Roddick's inability to lose weight and quit tennis early to save his mother and his faces.

- He lived with fat people all his life. To this day, fresh air and a simple small meal were abnormal.
Poor him. There was vomiting caused by hatred of criticism & comparison of himself to natural celebrities in tennis & movie fields. Dude was bloated from eating steak, gallons of goat cheese or fish eggs. A reporter said Roddick had junk food all over his hotel during a smug phoney interview about how great he & Federina were.
Fed said he knew Dick was losing long before Dick predictably lost at Wimbledon.
Not just in '09 but also that sweaty pig 2004 showcase.
He didn't have to fight while Dick shook with fear. All this Dicky's hassle just to give his wifey & mother good reputations as "charitable, loving people to the unwealthy little folks".

Ferrer's obviously. In their early meetings,'06 and before, Ferrer averaged less than five games total per match.

Now, at his peak, he hasn't beaten Olderer once.

Duck had to face Primerer, and at least held his own in matches lost. He was five points away from Wimbledon '09, a match point away from '06 TMC, and outplayed Fed for most of two and a half sets in Wimbledon '04 prior to the rain delay (Fed admits as much).

Now excuse me, I need a drink.

obviously ferrer-fed

at least roddick's h2h could be explained by the unfortunate luck of his career coinciding at the exact years of federer's peak, not to mention that roddick actually has beaten federer and has been a much bigger threat in their matches than ferrer

Dick had to admit that he couldn't lie to cover up weaknesses anymore in his US Open interview.

You have to downgrade Roddick's reputation with a sad nick name. Is this so-called respect?
Then, you need to bolster Federer's talent level by calling Roddick a challenger.
When was the last time Roddick beat a healthy Djoker without ignorantly embarrassing tennis fans with insults about Djoker's illnesses & 16 injuries?
Hey, Dicky would have been forgotten 8 yrs. ago if he hadn't praised Federer for just holding a racket.
Truth hurts for Fed, his fans & Dick.
Truth didn't harm Ferrer because he still is happy without family & media laughing at his personality. No bragging and Federer lies.
Just respect and love, BABY.

I chose Ferrer because Roddick was one botched volley away from answering this question definitively.

Roddick was kind of lucky to get the few wins he got

Since Fed does everything better than Ferrer, maybe on clay he can sneak a win...

ROGER FEDERER : GOAT

Dustin Brown, Lukas Rosol, Steve Darcis

NONSENSE! Roddick is much bigger and has much more natural power than Ferrer ever had. Therefore, Andy should have done much better against Roger than David ever could. Ferrer is an overachiever, Roddick was an UNDERACHIEVER.

Re: Which is the more embarrassing H2H, Ferrer/Fed or Roddick/Fed?

Wouldn't call it embarrassing to be dominated by a better player, especially one who dominates most of his rivals. Ferrer just needs 1 win to make it look more respectable than Roddick's H2H. Has to be the funkiest H2H between two slam champions of all time.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

FERRER VS RODDICK, H-H
DAVID-7, RODDICK-4
Only one of David's wins was on clay. One was at Wimbldon, the others on hard courts. Slightly off topic, perhaps, but shows that Andy is not superior to David overall.

Ferrer nearly lost to Rod on clay in Spain. More embarrassing than any h2h stats.

Not really. It's more of a match-up thing. Roddick has historically struggled with the best of that brand of player; see Rainer Schuttler or Gael Monfils. It only got worse when he (Andy) strayed from his aggression.

Wouldn't put much stock into this year's Wimbledon, though, given Roddick's continual bout with fitness and injuries since, really, late 2010. He was pretty much gassed after the second set.
