Gilbert rejects Roddick criticism
Brad Gilbert says recent criticism of Andy Roddick is unfair.

The American has not won a Grand Slam title since the 2003 US Open and recently went out of the Australian Open in the last 16.

But Roddick's former coach Gilbert told BBC Sport: "More than anything, his situation is about how much better Federer has been since 2003.

"He's like the Tiger Woods of tennis. Without Federer, Andy would be winning a whole lot more tournaments."

Federer has ended Roddick's Wimbledon hopes for three years in a row, including the last two finals.

"Let's remember, Andy is still number three in the world," said Gilbert.

"The two in front, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, are outstanding players, and Andy is only 23, a year younger than Federer, so let's give him time."

Like Andy said, "Brad has genius skills.
