The Curse of the Fedbino?!

Is Roddick cursed like the Red Sox were? I have to say after watching most (6 of the 8) of his many loses that he didn't play like he usually does, you know so sure of himself and so fiery (exclude Wimbly 04 and TMS Cananda). Are there supernatural forces at work? The curse of the Fedbino maybe?

Please Advise.

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

He wasn't so sure of himself and fiery at the finals of TMS Canada. I mean like 23 unforced errors in a set is garbage.

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

Hey, if the Red Sox and the Yankees can have a one-sided "rivalry" for 86 years, then so can Andy and Roger.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

I think it could be a curse. Andy just needs to be more confident when he plays Roger. He can keep up with him and beat him. Roger is human too.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

God Fedex, JesusFed, whatever his name...he blesses and he curses. Andy is one of them that he curses. And personally I don't think Andy plays his best when he plays Roger (except for the most of Wimby '04).

i think its true that andy doesnt play his absolute best when he does play fed, except for a few instances including the wimby final, or at least the beginning of it. but also, federer plays HIS absolute best, which unfortunatly is better than andy plays against him. andy will break the curse someday

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

Andy has one win.

They have played nine times.

Roger has one bageled set on Andy.

Roger has 8 wins.

Re: The Curse of the Fedbino?!

awwwwww Roger was cuter when he was younger!

So, I remember once Andy saying no one beats him 5 times in a row. He was 0-4 against Andre and beat him the 5th time, he was 0-4 against Roger and beat him the 5th time, he was 0-4 against Tommy and beat him the 5th time.

That means Andy has to win the next time they play
