I guess some people would rather laugh at his problems than celebrate his successes and the failures have been drying up quite nicely lately for the A-Rod.

Can I say, he's never going to be my favourite player but, not only do I really like the tennis he's playing at the moment, my heart melted just a little when I saw how choked he was after beating Lleyton. He couldn't quite believe he'd just routed this guy in straights. Was a really nice moment.

I think he was arrogant when it all came very easily in 2003 - he was very young and it happened so fast and the accolades and the attention and the screaming fans...it's virtually impossible not to become a bit arrogant.

He's had real struggles since then and seems to be coming out the other side, and I think he's been very candid about his problems and how it's made him feel and now seems quite humble that he's recapturing the form he had before - and I suspect it means more to him this time around.

It seems all of you who have never met the man have a negative opinion which has more to do with him being American. I see nothing "ugly" about him. He is no more arrogant than the next athlete. He is a good ambassador for America. As an American I am proud of what he has done and I hope he can continue. I don't know if he is ready to take on Federer but I can hope he can if not for this tournament, in the near future.

Sorry I can't add to the let's bash Andy and Americans in general thread. There it is, to hell with the rest. :)

I don't know about "Ugly American" but his game is, let's say, mildly disfigured irrespective of nationality. From his awkward movement to his almost clumsy (but on some shots effective) stroke production he just isn't pleasurable to watch as far as I'm concerned. Connors moved better and took the ball earlier and while Jimmy's forehand could be a little painful to watch on the whole he was a great player to observe. Connors understood the game in a way it just doesn't appear Andy does. Roddick's a one trick pony: bludgeon them or lose. I'd rather watch a skilled grinder like Davydenko (or Connors in his day) out manouver an opponent and wear them down bit by bit. Now thats fun.

GM is not a nice place for Roddick fan,s so we prefer to talk about our guy in our own forum. Besides on GM all he gets is nothing but endless bashing. Lately he has been on fire and that's why the hatred has come back. They don't mind him when he is playing badly but they really can't stand it when he has good results;)

If "you're not a fan of him and you don't care" why do you raise this point?
This is interesting cause I personally prefer not to come and talk about someone I don't like, like Roddick for eg., I just dont care about him, I dont watch his matches anymore and thats it. On the other hand for the people who are his fans the poor man is wronged and bashed, oh ah. They don't realise a lot of people dont enjoy his game (or presence) and dont have a problem to point out arguements which are strong enough imo. I dont see why whoever wants to talk about Roddick or Ljubo or Davydenko in some constructive way would have a problem. Free world. :rolleyes:

I've never been a great fan of obnoxious, bratty, arrogant, annoying American players namely Agassi (at least early in his career), McEnroe, Connors, Roddick. They just really bug me and they are rude (especially Connors and McEnroe) and very self-absorbed. Having said that, I hope Andy wins tomorrow against Federer and I have never been on Roddick's side before but now, I just want to see someone other than Federer win a slam.

Yeah, people need to stop and look at it from these player's perspectives sometimes. Look at Federer, he's 25 and is already being hailed as the greatest ever, that's a load for something to take in. A select few can handle all of it well, but most, naturally, will not be able to, especially at the outset.

Roddick already tried this so called "game plan" with Coach Gilbert, and it did work, for a yr or two, but once it's been figured out, he really cant do nothing else. He has already reached his peak and he will not be able to develop another game plan like Samprass since Roddick's game is too rigid.

Has Nadal finished the year at number 1? The only 2 players to finish #1 in the last 3 years have been Andy and Roger but nobody wants to realize that. Everyone just sits her and bashes Andy for his arrogance and his game. But seriously everyone seems to forget the guy is only 24 he's not done yet and everyone just writes him off and bashes him like he's yesterdays news. How many players have finished in the top 10 for what 4 years now? So Andy has to be doing something right for that to happen. But whatever nobody wants to see that.

And the one players to win two slams ON THE TOUR are Federer, Nadal, and Safin while Andy is still a one slam wonder, like Thomas Johansson who won his slam at around 24 as well, look how far he has come since then. Dont compare Nadal with Roddick because Nadal has already accomplished more than Roddick will accomplish in his career.

I know Roddick is not the most talented player, and I dont like his attitude either, I don't particularly like the guy, but that is besides the point of what I am going to say. He is a one slam wonder, I agree with that, but when the you think of it has Thomas Johansson ever made it to the second week of slams after that win over marat in 2002. At least we can say that Roddick has always been an contender, always in the semi finals and finals of grand slams. I have to admit though the only guy to stop him from winning Wimbledon in 2004 amd 2005 was Federer, so he didnt really loose it that badly. He has done very well at slams exactly like Nalbandian has, at least Roddick has won one. If you look at his career stats in slams they are pretty good performances.

Johansson made the semis at Wimbledon in 2005 losing to Roddick, so there is your answer.

Roddick had his time and as much as a turd I think he is, it's not his fault that the media and others overhyped him to be great American to carry on after the Sampras, Agassi, Courier, Chang generation. When he isn't that good, but he has done well with his game.

It is not good enough to be a "contender", Rios has been a contender all his life, but look how far he has gone. I mean, no one is writing him off, but I simply believe he has reached his peak and he will not be able to win another slam in his career as he will remain a one slam wonder like Thomas Johansson.

I don't understand why people say its because Andy is arrogant and sitting here saying its just American arrogance and what not. But has nobody noticed how cocky Roger is about himself seriously now. Has Nadal finished the year at number 1? The only 2 players to finish #1 in the last 3 years have been Andy and Roger but nobody wants to realize that. Everyone just sits her and bashes Andy for his arrogance and his game. But seriously everyone seems to forget the guy is only 24 he's not done yet and everyone just writes him off and bashes him like he's yesterdays news. How many players have finished in the top 10 for what 4 years now? So Andy has to be doing something right for that to happen. But whatever nobody wants to see that.

When Andy has won or surpassed 45 career singles titles including 9 slams, 12 TMS shields, 3 Tennis Masters Cup titles and three consecutive and unchallenged years at number one, then we can compare Roger's cockiness against Andy's because to be perfectly honest roger deserves to be a little cocky. But for now, Andy is still an arrogant one slam wonder with his best years behind him ;)

Whatever I guess people just have their favorites and what not and no matter what I say its going to be shot down anyways. But seriously at least Andy has won a slam thats more then A LOT of other players can say.

1 - Roddick's best years on not behind him.
2- He is a great tennis player, if it were not for Federer Andy would likely have 4 or more slams under his belt.
3- I think if Andy is going to change minds, he could do in 07' with his game which seems to me, to be rapidly improving.
4- Shutup.

I think most of us have agreed that Roddick will remain a one-slam wonder till the end of his career, not tomention that Andy has never reached #2 ranking since he failed to defend his US Open win. It is obvious that he is already fading away.

Oh yea you have agreed? :confused: That's cool, I am glad you can agree on things and make them so. :o We'll I think at one point most of us agreed the earth was flat and that all the planets in the galaxy orbited us.

Seriously, given the state and depth of men's tennis in the past 5 years you would have to be absolutely batty to agree that a certain player will or will not win a certain slam or win anymore slams. Who could have predicted Marat would win the Aussie in 05', Gaudio the french in 04', or...the list goes on. If Roddick plays at the level he did at the end of 06' for the next 3 or 4 prime years of his career he will always be in contension to win a slam.

Face it Roddick is a consistant peformer, he's finished the year a top 10 player for the last 4 years. The difference between Thomas Johannson, Gaston Gaudio...and most of those one slam wonders is that they did not. Those "one-slam wonders" played a great tournement one time, Roddick has played many great tournements and still IMHO has more left in him, because he's a champion.

Or Goran winning Wimbledon 2001 where Sampras was still at his prime. Agassi said over and over again that he felt better in his 30's than back then he was 20-something winning slams. Add the commets fromt he two best players to Hewitt's comments about him being better than years ago, I think the answer is pretty clear.

Roddick has improved his consistency from a year ago but he still isn't winning titles or threatening for big ones. I'm interested to see him this grass court season - he has so many points to gain at Wimbledon if he brings his confidence.

There's a pronounced difference in how he acts when there are cameras on him and when there are none. I saw him go into the tournament office in LA to default his singles match in the afternoon and when he came out around the back, there were maybe 10 people, most of them teen girls and he acted like a jerk just because they wanted a photo with him.

Yes, they do but he's no longer front page. More like page 5.:eek:
Compare today's match with the later Nadal-Youzhny event.
It's another class of tennis.
