Roddick was just canon fodder for Murray, highlight was the racquet smash from Duckboy.

A mediter style bagel as well.

Duck is done. He actually hit an 155 km/h first serve (under 100mph), just 1 ace throught the match.
Murray was reading his game like an open book.

Roddick against the best players in 2011:

Queens Club: Murray 3-6, 1-6
US Open: Nadal 2-6, 1-6, 3-6
Basel: Federer 3-6, 2-6
Paris: Murray 2-6, 2-6

Lucky A-Rod to avoid a match with Djokovic and probable bagel. Former No. 1 and the best server :facepalm: :o

Roddick is worse than awful. Anyone who can return and doesn't make too much errors can beat him easily.
He lost even his serve.

Roddick playing against the likes of Federer,Nadal or Murray losing his serve twice or even three times in a set tells the story.His serve is not working and from the baseline he is too predictable and without the opponents mistakes he struggles to win any points.

Murray excellent but then he wasn't really being asked to do very much that was difficult or put under any kind of pressure, which makes it easier to play your best tennis.

Roddick just looks powerless at the moment for whatever reason, wondering if he can claw at least some of what he's lost back.

I think a good sign for Murray is that I think he hit quite a few more winners than Roddick produced errors. Nice dictating play.
Roddick at his best was never a great volleyer, but now he suicide volleys. It does help liven up the highlight really, but he needs to reconsider that tactic.

Yep, if he's waiting for Murray or Nadal to make errors, he'll be waiting all day. And Fed can spray in his old age, but never against Roddick- he saves his best to slam Roddick every time.

Waiting for heya to respond.

That was a Murray masterclass :yeah:, had Roddick on a string and toyed with him like a yo-yo, dragging him all over the court.

But Roddick's racquet smash - :bigclap:, well that was his highlight of the whole match, and once again, conversing with the umpire.

What has happened to Roddick's serve? :help: The guy had 0 aces the whole match...Roddick's game just does not do anything against the Top 4, he didn't play Djokovic at all this year, but Roddick got thoroughly beaten by Murray, Nadal and Federer.

Keep going Muzza, for Roddick, well hope he somehow finds his Wimbledon 09 form, otherwise things don't look good for 2012!

Mo thought it was kind of comical but did his best to treat Roddick respectfully during the entire court change when Roddick continued complaining.

It's kind of sad that, as soon as Roddick smashed the racquet, I knew he was going to argue with the umpire about it. It's sad that it's become what McEnroe does at exhibitions.

Much like their match in Queens, the script was so predictable: a few shots in the back court, then Roddick would be drawn into net (usually completely out of position) and Murray would pass repeatedly.

Roddick's fluke slam was just luck, that's all. Murray has had JesusFed in two of his finals who's not exactly the best player to be playing against in a slam final.

Anyway, Murray will get those slams eventually and surpass Roddick in every way imaginable.

He should definitely win this title too. By far the best player atm.

:secret: Roddick has lost 4 slam finals to Fed, and three of them took place place in 2004-2006 when Federer was JesusFed for real, not Olderer having a good day. Incidentally, Roddick still won a set in two of those.

I despise Roddick but so far he has proved himself as a greater player than Murray.

How about giving Roddick a bit of respect. You could argue that he won a slam back when it was maybe easier to do so, but that certainly shouldn't detract from his achievement - I don't think you can ever write off a major win as being lucky.

The guy isn't getting any younger, and might still be a bit gutted about the recent death of his manager. Not only that, but he came up against a player who's in the form of his life. On paper, he was never the favourite to win this - I don't think that him losing merits all these petty insults and calls for retirement.

Also, what other tennis player could say they've appeared on Sabrina the Teenage Witch???

Nalbandian was stopped by Fed, Hewitt and eventual RG champ Gaudio in the 04-05 period, and was unlucky to be sick in the 2006 RG semi final.

Safin won the AO playing a much higher level of tennis than anyone did this year that's for sure. Then again as recent as 05 conditions favoured ATTACKING players, not DEFENSIVE ones.

And that's a key stat for me: An era of great pro-active players beats one of human brick walls. Always. No-brainer.

a key stat for you because you know little about the game. it doesnt matter is it defense of attack which wins, as long as it wins.

"pro active" is a dream of yours, which you project onto an opinion.

I've followed it for years, whereas you only showed interest when Djokovic emerged or when Monica Seles was hanging around. No Serbs = no interest :shrug:

Of course it matters- Federer was proactive, as were most of the players I mentioned bar Lleyton, and it made for a really high level of tennis, whereas the level of tennis at the slams this year bar Fed-Djo at RG and the third set of the USO final has been of poor standard, no doubts.

Told you it would be easy. I can't believe morons on here actually thought A-Rod was a batch match-up just because of the Wimbledon loss. Yes in reality, Roddick logically has the tools to beat him in most matches, but does this mean, the idiot will show up? Of course not. He's not a smart player. Why do you think he changes his tactics at almost every major tournament? Guy is not smart at all. If he was able to use his brains, he would have retired with 4 slams accredited to his name.

setsampras and his bullshits again.........

nole had to wait that federer low his level and become more old, because in the years 2008 , 2009 and 2010 he always was defeated by nadal and past peak federer and only won 1 gs.

you put djokovic 2011 but don`t tell that federer has 30 years old and anyway he could defeat peak and young djokovic in rg and push to the limits in us open , if the federer of 2004-2007 play now, he can defeate nole without any problem , federer`s game is very different: his forehand is more weak , his serve is more weak too, his backhand was more agressive than now , his reflexes low, his footwork low very much and physicall condition too and anyway he can win and fight with a peak nole and prime nadal.

talking about roddick, this roddick is a shadow of the best roddick , the roddick of 2009 could defeat murray in wimbledon semis , and that roddick was far of his peak.....the best roddick was a very much player that murray in hard and grass: powerful and amazing serve , powerful forehand , his backhand was more agressive and his physicall was better.

Setsampras is a nice guy. But he seriously needs to come back to reality. Yes, I'm sorry, that Sampras, lost his title as "GOAT" to Federer. But come on man, seriously, who would want Sampras as GOAT anyways? The GOAT to be a SV type player? I mean it's a nice accomplishment to dominate that many slams with SV since it's not an easy tactic. But, ideally, when you think of tennis goat, you think of someone that's amazingly ridiculous in all aspects of tennis, not just one. Someone multidimensional, not one dimensional.
