Re: Which is more likely to happen

Ah, NOW you add the discussion part of it.

Roddick winning RG? Are you flippin' serious?

Bah, I shouldn't be quite that negative. Anything's possible (after all, Myskina won the French Open last year.. how the $@#& did that happen?), and if Andy would get smarter mentally, I suppose he could be more of a threat. The kid needs some confidence.

It's more likely for Nadal to win Wimbledon, however, but I don't see that happening, atleast not anytime soon (not in the next 3-4 years or more). I think this poll is pointless, everyone knows what's more likely. I would pose a more thought-provoking question, such as:

Who looks better without their shirt?

Andy Roddick
Irakli Labadze




Serena Williams
Martina Navratilova
Steffi Graf



Andy Roddick | Roger Federer | Venus Williams | Lleyton Hewitt | Maria Sharapova | Justine Henin-Hardenne | Kim Clijsters

Re: Which is more likely to happen

Roddick has won 5 claycourt tournaments
Nadal hasn't even come close to winning a single grass tournament
Nadal gets thrashed in the first round at Halle.
Nadal gets thrashed in the second round of Wimbledon.
Roddick made the third round of RG when he was only 18 years old.
Roddick was a set away from making the third round again at RG, before blowing a 2-0 lead.
Roddick has more sets this year at RG, than Nadal has in both of his grass tournaments.

Re: Which is more likely to happen

There will be too many claycourters for Roddick to ever contend at RG. Even if the draw opens up, there will someone who is good on clay to take him out. As for Nadal, he might get a draw where he would have to beat only maybe 1 or 2 really good grass players and perhaps in the future he will have improved himself on grass. In the end, I think neither will win on their most troublesome surfaces.

I mean't Nadal hasn't won a grasscourt tournament. I thought it was obvious, but I fixed it for you.

Heh. It wasn't obvious, as the subject and direct object were changed in the implied version. I see your edited version though, makes sense now.

Re: Which is more likely to happen

I certainly think Nadal winning Wimbledon is likelier. If Hewitt can do as well as he has over recent years, there's no reason why Nadal can't match that or even better it with their styles of play being so similar.

For me, Andy making the 2nd week of RG would be a major breakthrough. It's just not his surface: his game does not translate to clay very well at all.
