ANDY RODDICK is the only player to have won multiple titles each of the past 5 years

People wathcing the sport tend to overlook some of the Andy's accomplishments. Sure, he has had trouble winning big matches and big tournaments during the past 2 years, but he has had a very successful run in the past 5 years overall. One can say he has underachieved and I certainly believe so, but that doesn't lessen the things he has actually achieved
.
The accomplishments of King Fed dwarf that every other one of his comtemporaries which tends to make fans overlook some other player's accomplishments, but Roddick can be proud of 5 solid years.

Here's a list of some of the players who have made a big impact during the 2000's and how many tourneys they have won in each of the decade's years.:

No problem Prabu. :)

I think I'll try and find out how many players have ever won 70+ matches in three consecutive years next. Federer has done it three straight times now along with his 29 titles during that span.

It´s really weird that Andy can play well in small tourneys and wins them, but he sucks in the big ones. He hasn´t won a big title since early 2004 and it would be good for him if he could end this title drought with a win in Paris. Still I doubt that this will happen and I wouldn´t be surprised if he already loses in the first few rounds.

P.S. I know that Lleyton hasn´t won any big title since early 2003.

But that's the wya it goes in sports.If Wimbledon didn't have special seeding it's very possible Roddick would never have made the finals this year. There wasn't a tournament this year where Andy was on the same side of the draw as Rogelio. How do you think Hewitt feels loosing to him in the SF of two grand slams? And imagine how much better Agassi's year could've been had he not run into Fed in the QF of AO and SF of Miami. It's very possible he would've beaten Nadal in the Miami finals, and AO who knows, but if he did beat Safin, he would've had a good shot at beating Hewitt in the finals I think.

Andy Roddick has 335 points to defend till the end of the year.
Lleyton Hewitt has close to 500 points to defend untill the end of the year.
Agassi has barely anything, as do Davydenko and Coria.

Still, Ljubicic should be able to make the top five granted that the guys ahead of him don't do anything extraordinary and he makes the Masters Cup and wins a match or two.

That's all good and true, however Wimbledon special seeding is only because the grasscourt season is too short to use the world rankings. The only person to beat Roddick on grass for the past three years is Federer, so it's not like what they did was unfair.

If Hewitt and Agassi don't like playing Federer in the quarters and semis. They should do what Roddick and Nadal did: get the number two rank and hold on to it. Or better yet, what Safin and Nadal did: beat Federer before the final were he is more vulnerable.

You can't tell me Andy's the second best player on clay. So I think that whole special seeding thing is silly. You say they should do what Roddick and Nadal did. Roddick held the #2 ranking for all of two weeks in 2005. So being drawn on the opposite side of Fed was down to luck and Hewitt being injured where Roddick then became the #2 seed.

I'm confused about your point. What is it exactly? Having a number 2 seed automatically places Andy on the other half from the number one player (maybe that will be Nadal soon :p ), but being lower seeded doesn't necessarily place him on the same side as the number one player.
