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

Ferrer's of course. 3 sets in 14 matches (+2 tiebreaks) tell a story of their own. It's surely the most loopsided H2H ever between top 5 players and only casts further doubts over the legitimacy of Ferrer's top 5 status. He has absolutely no weapons to trouble Federer, who can easily routine even playing like shit himself.

Roddick on the other hand mostly faced a stronger version of Federer (prime Federer) and took several sets and pushed Federer immensely in at least two of their Slam finals (USO 2006 was far from routine too), not to mention he won three times. Despite the loopsided H2H, Roddick was never a virtual bye to Federer, unlike Ferrer, against whom the outcome is NID.

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!

superb (you must spread reputation around...etc)

roddick was always a bye for frauderer however; tears, press conferences, and bitchy consolation saw to that

IW this year was a fluke, probably Fed wanted to give Andy one last win before he retired. Fed-Roddick matches were pretty much always NID.

Brute force and tall body equal nothing. The clown had no ability to hit 2 volleys when Fed bowed down in the 2009 Wimbledon final and Murray gifted him the free cash reward in the semi.
Ferrer doesn't lose 0-6 to any random 70th ranked player like Roddick did.

I have to agree with Manuel here as well. And it was Miami.

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".

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.
Laughed so hard reading this.

There's nothing embarrasing about Ferrer/Fed H2H, as Ferrer has never been considered Fed's competitor, well unless you consider that in itself embarrasing for a #5.

This.

Also Roddick was a much better player than Ferrer, winning a slam, being #1, and winning MS events. So for Roddick it was even more embarrassing. He came very close to being Roger's ostrich. Ferrer is still pretty far from that.

The answer is Roddick.

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

Ferrer's H2H is more embarrassing. Not the H2H itself but the fact he's taken so few sets. Is it really only 3 sets in 14 matches?


That got to be the most loopsided ever. Read that again. 3 sets and 2 tiebreaks in 14 matches??? In tennis? If you can beat him in a slam you pull a full 3 sets in one match...


It's downright awful. He's not even been close in the vast majority of matches but gotten routined like a gimp. He should consider WO:ing rest of the Federer encounters or somehow by some miracle try to win at least some more sets.

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

Yes, Ferrer was in a bad way 6 yrs. ago but he was very thin.
He exceeded expectations. Remember he quit tennis before.
He wins a lot. Is he done? Nuhoo.

Roddick hired coach after coach but he was too genetically predisposed to physical breakdown. He was misguided, clueless, badly coached, & too scared of Federer to commit to training.
Jimmy Connors called him an old dog.
He already knew his days of winning meaningful titles were over. The Miami fluke was too late.
When he told the 2006 Cincinnati crowd that he wasn't losing Slams to anyone except Federer, everyone knew it was the end of his hope for fame.

unfortunately for cash grabbing and oxygen starved roddick, real rivals and no 1s win matches on the biggest stages

lack of socialization doesn't allow fake praise and unrestrained greed

davis cup wins were a desperate attempt to win love from frauderer; frauderer responded with handbags, presser insults and limelight stealing
Very well played, sir. You are a scholar and a poet.

Legendary stuff. I am in awe. No matter how much drugs I do, I just can't tap into this sort of raw inspired insanity. What is your secret?

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

What's really embarrassing is that mugs like Roddick were top 5 players to begin with. With such a Juggernaut constantly in the second week of slams trying to halt Noserer's progress, it's a surprise the "GOAT" managed to outplay such a legend almost every time.

Pretty funny that Djokovic and Murray had inconsistent years, but they still caused Roddick to retire with his pathetic fake goodbye. "I don't want to retire as a one slam wonder".
"I had to say bye". To whom or what?
Millions of dollars paid to him? Like tv ad with the US Open trophy in the plane's overhead compartment crashing onto his head. Him whimpering because daddy Fed won. Hilarious as watching Paris Hilton's acting and smacking boyfriends.
