Personally? I dont think he will ever win one for US. He is not number one by far.
him/Blake is not as good as Nadal/Robredo combo (1 slam 2 master vs 2 slam 6 masters)
I dont think Roddick can beat Russians on clay and I think ATP website has overhyped him.

Thank you Misha Youzhny!

Some say Roddick is hugely over-rated, that he has only a big serve, but I regard him as one of the top players," Youzhny said. "It's true that in the past he could not win anywhere else but in the U.S., but he has matured a lot in recent years.
"He has also improved his baseline play, his backhand has got better too, so he is a complete player now. He is a former world number one and you don't become number one for nothing."

His playing style is ugly but his results proof his value so, no, not overhyped. He gives as good as he gets.

Re: Why is Roddick overhyped (may never win Davis Cup in his life)?

I think Roddick does good with his game. People says that he sucks and sucks and sucks and still he make US Open final and Masters title something which very few active player have reached.

And last year Roddick has suck the same and again made Wimbledon final.

For me Overhyped is other player but not who get results.

Maybe in USA they hype him like a #1. Then he would be overhyped by US media. But reason to hype him is here which is not with others.

Albert Costa forever +++ Tommy Haas +++ Ivo Karlovic +++ Peter Luczak


RAFA owns Fedclown ~~~ H2H record 14-7 -- ~~~ 3 different GS finals included
Byebye Fedjerk, your dominance period is over! Nadal will win like 10 more Slams!

You're not overhyped if you've won a slam, been number 1 in the world, and been in the top three for three straight years.

In Davis Cup they got to the final in 2004 and were very close to beating a tough Spanish team. Roddick played hard against an up-and-coming Rafa on clay and almost got it...and they're in the semis this year with a shot of going the whole way.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Re: Why is Roddick overhyped (may never win Davis Cup in his life)?

Davis Cup is a team event. So the US could win without Roddick winning any of his matches. The US team currently has 2 top 10 players and the #1 doubles team. While their chances are not too good on clay in Russia there have been other teams who have won the Cup with fewer high ranking players. And because no one player can win Davis Cup all by himself it would also be unfair to blame Roddick if it didn't happen--it takes 3 matches to lose and he only plays 2 of them.
