You know, if ppl are saying that Roddick not getting enough credit for winning USO, what do you say about Juanqui? At least Roddick is supposed to win USO right from the beginning. No one expects Juanqui to get to the Final. He beat 2 of the best hardcourters in the world and ppl still refused to acknowledge his ability on hard court. Bets already start stacking against him for his ability to compete in the coming indoor season
, he is still a claycourter who is not supposed to do well on hardcourt
Well, to quote what Agassi said after he got beaten by JC: "he did it on clay courts, he did it on hard courts, anyone think differently is their issues, not his". JC is turning into a roadblock for him. JC beat him in last year's TMC to destroy his hope to get to the yearend number 1. JC beat him this year in USO to take the number 1 title from him, both were played on Agassi's favorite surface. I supposed he's taking it personally when the reporter is doubting JC's ability on hard court, if JC is not so good on hard court, what does it say about Agassi losing to him 2 times in a roll?
Anyway, if he doesn't finish as #1 at the end of the year, I don't see he will ever get the respect he deserves
. But no matter, whatever happens at the end, no one can take this accomplishment away from him.
