Roddick win was good, fair play. He beat baby Del Potro, hardly a big scalp. He beat Verdasco before he boomed, Nalbandian in the first round at Wimbledon which isn't so hard. Is beating Kohlschreiber really that impressive? Yes, lots of players take sets off the top guys occasionally.
Fact is, over a ten year career like Dancevic's, if he was really capable of this god-like tennis that you claim he is, he would have beaten better players than you've mentioned. I just don't see it.
He took a set of Nadal because he played 1 really super good return game. Baby Dimitrov also took a set of Nadal a couple of years back, so is that really that impressive?
All the player in the top 500 can play 1 great match a season, it's just the World Top that plays consistently to be named elite. The stuff that seperates the men from the boys.
