Re: Attack of the clones : Roddick vs Monfils

I'm thinkin Roddick in two, but who knows...I think Monfils could be capable of the upset. But capability means absolutely nothing in tennis.

Re: Attack of the clones : Roddick vs Monfils

I've my fingers crossed for Andy and will be very disappointed if he loses.

But, it will be a great breakthrough for Monfils if he can win. It would mean a lot for him.

Allez Andy Show the Frenchboy why he admires your serve so much in the first place.

edit
From atp site:

Roddick on Monfils: "He plays just like me. He's very exciting, he'll be pumped up and angry on the court and do his whole thing. I remember the first time I was watching him at Wimbledon last year and I saw this guy serve and I said "Who is that?" They said "He's No.1 in Juniors." I'd heard his name before but I'd never seen him play. I said "I've seen that serve before, it looks familiar...

"I think it's good for someone to show their personality. I did the whole thing when I was 18, 19 years old, it's just a little bit of being excited and youthful and it’s good for tennis. The more personality we show the better. I think he's good for the game. He's not the typical French. He plays hard on every shot, big and in your face. He brings and attitude to the court, which I think is good for him. He's playing very well and has no pressure. It will be a tough match. I’m looking forward to it."

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Duck in 2. But I'm hoping to see an entertaining match between the Roddicks

You probably have no idea who the guy in my avatar is.

Re: Attack of the clones : Roddick vs Monfils

Why do people think that Monfils is Roddick's clone? Monfils 's serve is modelled along Roddick's serve but his ground game is different enough to make their styles different.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: Attack of the clones : Roddick vs Monfils

They do have a similar game but Roddick has a better serve slightly probably better forehand and Monfils has better movement, defence and backhand. But the differences aren't so big, they're generally similar.

So, Roddick thinks of himself as an exciting player?!
