RODDICK: A Crazy Hot Streak A Couple of Years Ago?

So said Roddick of his hard court run in 2003. A crazy hot streak? Or playing up to his level thanks to a great coach, Brad Gilbert?

Both. It's exactly the same as Federer winning three out of four Slams last year; something he was capable of with his game, but an exceptional achievement he's probably not going to repeat again.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

In my opinion it was a crazy hot streak that was going to happen regardless of coaching.

Roddick was kinda one-dimensional that time, but boy, it was a fantastic dimension and not many knew yet how to deal with it.

Roddick played great all summer 2003. Still I have to wonder where he might be were Brad Gilbert still guiding his career.

crazy hot streak...got left off the hook a couple of times..Nalbandian really should have beaten him at the Open. and he clearly was showing the weakness in Andy´s game: bring back the serve and you´re gonna be fine.
