Amazing scenes.

Edit: I just realised how much I want Stepanek and Haas back in action.

04-04-2010, 08:01 PM
Well deserved :)

Good old 2003. :yeah:

But we need Ferrero at #2, not #13. :(

and Federer without winning the AO would be like 85th

04-04-2010, 08:04 PM
Similar to Ljubicic without winning IW.

And Murray without AO final.

I have a question.

When was the last time the #1 player for early hard court season was not the winner of the AO that year?

Nevermind, must have been Fed in 2005.

Yep, Roddick will hold that lead into the next mandatory Masters event, Rome. Great job! :yeah:

If he can stay injury-free all season, it will be interesting to see if he can break up the 'big 4' at year-end. Arguably, he has a very good chance of doing that, considering that he can score big points anywhere once the European clay season is over...and Djokovic is looking rather fragile right now.

Well, it's not guaranteed surely? What if Rafa wins Monte Carlo and Barcelona like he did last year? That would give him 2,800 points.

Nadal is number 1 if he's not injured.

04-05-2010, 01:21 AM
if if if... blablabla

numbers are saying.. Roddick is da best.. :D :banana:

04-05-2010, 10:17 AM
Good to see -- America is right where it should be

04-05-2010, 10:23 AM
Impressive 26-4 from Roddick to date.:worship:

great job andy roddick, keep it up!!! :bigclap:

04-05-2010, 11:31 AM
Great JOB
it's time for Roddick to get back to Top five

04-05-2010, 11:50 AM
Truth is the reason he is so hard to play is the reason he annoys his haters so much. It is simply very tough to keep coming out, see Roddick smash some first serves and hold in 1 and a half minutes, then try and hold serve yourself in the knowledge Roddick isn't making any errors off the ground. I see why people don't enjoy watching him play that way, it makes for a lot of dull matches but at the same time, it is effective and at times Roddick is looking invulnerable playing that way. Monster serves + no errors = good combination.

It's early days yet and none of the other top players have a time of the season where they really suck the way Roddick has done on clay so breaking up the top guys will be tough. Still, there's a first time for everything, maybe the American can surprise us all again? JMDP really has a lot of ground to make up already.
