. Roddick would like to believe that he's on a song, but take away that first serve and his post-match humour and he's got nothing. Among the Americans, I think Blake had (considering his present form) a better game.
Fast forward to today, and he looks like an even worse player than he did before the US Open series. His approach shots are ridiculously stupid, and all the progress he seemed to have made in his game after Connors seems gone. Maybe it's just me, but was the "new Roddick" just some stupid illusion?
What really gets me is that he was playing great a few months ago, and now...just isn't.
I held some hope for him after Kooyong classic when he won against Roger, and was expecting more fuel at AO, but after Roger's whiplash on him at the semi's, there was nothing left to say of his improvement. Unless he doesn't stop worshipping Federer before and after every match, he's going to be runover again and again.
Off the court, I'd like to think that he's paying more attention to Sharapova than Conners
. Lets see how he fares against Murray?
