Andy Roddick's run in San Jose defines greatness.

Because he's obviously not playing his best tennis by far, and he's still winning.

That's the real sign of a champion.

Andy's game is so dominating, that he can be way off his game and still beat 99% of the tour. I respect Andy for fighting through this difficult period and perservering like the champion that he is.

Re: Andy Roddick's run in San Jose defines greatness.

yeah, a top 3 player not playing their best and beating the #546 ranked player sure is a sign of greatness.

Re: Andy Roddick's run in San Jose defines greatness.

Absolutely definitely. They should spare the trouble rigging the RG draw and stuffing his section with all those horrible dirtballers. Even if he loses early, he should be awarded the trophy for his amazing fight through the difficult times and his spirit of a true champion. Oh, Andy

"#546 ranked player"

Haas is #17, Enqvist is #75, Lee is #58 and Goldstein in the first round was #161

I'm not sure where you got that from.

Leena, I can tell when you're being a bit sarcastic and you are with this thread. And Vaiva is being very sarcastic.

Egalite!

Re: Andy Roddick's run in San Jose defines greatness.

It's not bad at all for a bottom tier event.

ok, but take somewhere like Rotterdam this week. Nalbandian for example could have to play Stepanek, Ferrero, Joachim, Coria and then Federer to win the title (which he will). there's no comparison in t quality of t fields

Andy Murray ~ Richard Gasquet ***David Nalbandian*** Rafael Nadal ~ Gilles Simon
Paw Ranking (Race) : ? (?)
Brought PAW to MTF in 2004
Year end no. 1 in 2012

PAW Titles : 9 (WIMBLEDON '12, Washington '11, Acapulco '08, Stockholm '07, Houston '05, Monte Carlo TMS '04, Newport '04, Beijing '04, Moscow '04)
Finalist: 15 (Buenos Aires '12, Stockholm '11, Barcelona '11, Queen's 09, Nottingham '08, Las Vegas '08, Adelaide '08, Tokyo '06, St Poelten '06, Australian Open '05, St Poelten '05, Newport '05, Wimbledon '04, Houston '04, Basel '04)

Re: Andy Roddick's run in San Jose defines greatness.

Rotterdam is a bigger event and there is lots of different variables.

I'm just saying that for an event like San Jose, it's not a bad run at all.

I agree with you. He does need to step up his game though. His confidence is still down this year, but if he wins San Jose, it should help a little.
