Andy Roddick is easily made to look one dimensional when you compare him to the other players on tour, even if you ask me he has an inferior serve to Federer.
His game is simply ball-bashing, there is no finesse and little usage of spins in it. His slice is the most variety that he has, it's almost like when you watch him out there he's just experimenting to see if maybe something will work ... like serving & volleying ... if he tries that against Federer tomorrow he'll get passed more than a hitchhiker.
Andy Roddick lack of variety in each shot:
Lack of Placement
Lack of Variety (Not nearly as efficient when it comes to a slice or kick serve)
2nd Serve percentage is not that high, obviously this stems from a lack of variety and the fact that all he can do is bring the heat.
His forehand is on and off, it's hot and cold, that can be attributed to the fact that he doesn't have the best footwork, technique and once again, usage of spins on tour.
Really now, does this even need to be addressed ?
Roddick is all about power and has no finesse, no strategic approach ... once you get his 150MPH serve back chances are his winning percentage drops significantly.
