What a spanking. The only thing that saved Roddick from a 6-1 6-1 destruction was his serve. The only way he was winning points was with aces or service winners. Once the rally started he was completely lost.
Roddick hasn't got big enough groundstrokes to bother Nadal like Youzhny, Berdych or Blake. He also doesn't hit flat enough to blow Nadal off the court like those other players. If it wasn't for his serve, this guy wouldn't be in the top 10. He must be the most overrated player on the tour.
Also, I don't know why he goes to the net so often when he hasn't got a clue how to volley, plus Nadal's passing shots are superb. Roddick looked like a spinning door watching Nadal's passing shots fly by him time and time again.
agreed 100%. i'm american and i wish could give roddick credit, but i mean...he is not that talented minus the serve. nadal DESTROYED him...and wow, i haven't seen nadal play in a while but man has he improved. he was totally aggressive and just owned roddick on his 'best' surface.
well done. nadal should silence the haters for a bit.
