Hewitt vs Roddick, who will have the better overall Slam results?

Which one of these players will have the better overall Slam results this year?

This came about from a discussion between WyverN and myself. He says Roddick and I say Hewitt, the best thing that neither of these players are our favourites.

I thought it would be good to ask the people on MTF who they believe will have the better overall results.

We have nearly all scenarios covered like if one player is injured and misses a Slam, we will only count the Slams they played in. If the points are equal then it would go to which player had the higher finishes in the other rounds.

The points that we agreed on are
W: 1200
RU: 500
SF: 280
QF: 140
R4: 80
R3 : 40
R2: 20
R1: 0

Oooh, fun. But don't make me guess, though. I think both can win at least one this year.

I agree. Hopefully neither of them actually do, though.

I guess that Roddick will have better results overall, though.

I'll discuss that at greater length, tomorrow. After I sleep

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

Neither do I Rebecca, but this is something I am not taking too seriously. In a perfect world I would like them to lose all their 1st round matches at the Slams. But since when have we ever lived in a perfect world?

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

I'm currently leaning towards Hewitt for better over-all results in Slams this year. I think they're pretty even in terms of opportunity at the Aussie Open, Wimbledon, and US Open, but I'd give Hewitt the definite edge on clay at Roland Garros. After all, he's reached the quarterfinals there before while Roddick has failed to surpass the first round the past two years. Based on the match I saw Roddick play against Hrbaty last fall in Davis Cup, he still needs a great deal of improvement with his clay court game before he even reaches the Final 8 in Paris.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

I would go with Roddick, based on this past year. Andy has finally figured out how to make good use of his weapons. But I never underestimate Hewitt --- I don't think we've seen the end of his tough fighting style!

On a related note, too bad we haven't seen them play each other since 2001! All three of their matches were that year, and all were won by Hewitt. But Roddick has improved greatly since then, so who knows how they would match up today! In 2003 Roddick was able to defeat other quick, consistent players like Schuettler, Coria, Ferrero, and Nalbandian, whereas I think he would have had more trouble in the past.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

Leo, the only way Roddick would do that on his past clay form would be if they had 10 days of very hot and dry weather in Paris to make the courts faster, and if he played players that weren't very good on clay, by the draw opening up.

Though Roddick might have an advantage at Wimbledon, the other two are fairly even and could go either way.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

Of course Mister Q you forget that Schuettler leads him 3-1 overall and beat him the last time they played. No, tiredness is not an excuse.

Hewitt's mental toughness would drive Roddick mad, and he's not intimidated by Roddick's game then or now.

There is a chance that they mightn't meet in any of the Slams this year, Roddick has yet to beat him, and if even he does, that doesn't mean he will be able to do so consistently.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

MisterQ, I don't think Andy has beaten Rainer in 2003.

If I had to choose someone in this poll, I'd go with Roddick. I'm a lot more confident in him now that Brad Gilbert's at the helm.

Re: Hewitt vs Roddick

That's right, Roddick lost to Schuettler all three times they met this year. And Hewitt is a beefed-up, more talented version of Schuettler...

I wouldn't have offered an excuse, George.

You all are right, I made an error including Schuettler in that list. However, I stand by my assertion that Roddick is getting better than he used to be at dealing with steady, consistent players. For this reason I cannot predict the outcome of the next Hewitt/Roddick match with any certainty.
