Is Bud Collins a Roddick fan who hopes Roddick will beat Federer or does he genuinely think Roddick will beat Federer?
Over 3 sets Roddick probably has a reasonable chance of winning. However, over 5 sets it is more difficult.
"I hope, and think, Roddick will get his man somewhere this season."
I guess both...
You're probably right about 3 sets vs 5. Roddick beat fed that one time in a best of 3 and had match points in shanghai over best of 3. Still, Roddick's sole victory came when Fed served 10 double faults...he didn't play his best that time.
