Roddick is a joke player. The double fault to give Fed MP pretty much sums up his clown performance. He has reached a new milestone in his career: Being Fed's #1 bitch.

:) I do enjoy the Federer-Roddick rivalry. 20-2 now? I hope he can make it to 22-2. That has anyone ever had a 20 match lead in a h2h before?

Roddick had a really bad service day. Fed was just very solid. His forehand seems to have made a slight comeback from the awfulness of Shanghai.

Roddick's serves and forehands on Fed's backhand are so ridiculously pathetic :o It's sad watching those matches with a knowledge Roddick was No. 1 in the world once. I hope someone deprives him the spot in Masters, would be good for A-Rod to avoid another embarrassing performance against Fed there.

Hmmm...Borg had some very lopsided h2h's, he was for example 16-0 vs Gerulaitis, dunno if there were any with 20 match leads though. And of course on WTA Navratilova had some 30-1 or so leads over some players...

Fed played very well 1st set, rather poorly 2nd, Roddick was awful

Roddick should retire his pathetic readable SERVE lull's federer into thinking his" returning" is good the BLOCK RETURN so effective against roddick is useless against nadull,Novak,Murray etc.Fed should be concentrating on the "DRIVE BH return" thats more effective.
On one break point fed attempted a drive return,Robbie said "why didn't he block it"
The game has changed there aren't many big serves @ the top anymore, While fed is evolving matches like these imo is a step back,that perpetuates feds mediocre return games against todays elite.

NID really. Perhaps people aren't reading into why Roger uses the block return against Rod, because it works perhaps? He obviously knows what works best against Andy because the H2H says so. I'm not saying Federer doesn't need to work on his returning, he does. But its clear that this particluar style of return works well against Roddick, but clearly does not against Nole/Rafa/Murray etc..

habibko
11-06-2010, 05:36 PM
the match point summed up this match up, Federer returns Roddick's big serve, Federer hits a short slice forcing Roddick to come forward, Roddick hits his favorite approach to the open court towards Federer's forehand, Federer passes the sitting Duck at the net.

Roddick has long since bent over for Federer, but even I was surprised that Roddick has quit to this extent against Federer. Roddick would do himself favors and save the fans money if he would just default when he is slated to play Federer from now on.

In other news, Federer becomes just the 6th man in the last 30 years to record 20 wins against one opponent.

Fed's block return is great against roddick & other big servers but poor against the likes of nadull/Murray etc it just sits-up for them. The slowing down of the courts /absences of big servers in the elite pack makes it a liability.
Fed played against roddick like how he supposed to but its nadull/Murray/Novak are the players generally @ the end of slams. So thats why I stated he should avoid players like roddick, I know he cant but I just think he should realize playing roddick is not playing the other players, he has a match-up advantage on roddick not so the others.

11-06-2010, 06:38 PM
The result here was NID. Roddick wasn't up for it, which is unacceptable given his now 2-20 H2H. Outside of the beginning of set two, he was very poor. His serve isn't as big as it used to be, he never got an insane amount of free points v Roger, but both his first and second have lost steam. Obviously, Roger also takes advantage of Roddick going to his backhand 90% of the time and is easily able to read and dictate. Also, Andy's approach shots were just abysmal most of the time, too easy to pass, and he doesn't react well at the net.

Outside of the first serve, returning and occasionally his forehand, I wasn't too impressed by Roger's level, but he probably knew he didn't need to step it up and was so comfortable it led to him not giving his full best. He'll need to step it up v Djokovic.

Not that i disagree with you, but Nalbandian is out of shape/form/fitnessWell I never claimed Roddick was looking good (never saw the match) but others were. They've not seen such aggressive play from him in a long time, he's got a good shot at 3 of the 4 slams next year, etc. I just questioned how in one day he could go from looking good to being utter shite.

Getting to WTF has been Andy's goal this season and it's no small feat if he were to win a spot for the eighth year in a row. To be a consistent top eight player, to be good enough to earn a ticket to the year end championships is nothing to sneeze at. The fact that he hasn't thrown in the towel and dropped out of top 20 after so many career losses to Federer is even more impressive. We all saw what happened to Murray after losing the AO. Now multiply that by 20 and see how he manages after a few years.

Andy simply refuses to give up and go away. Bad news for his critics. http://imgsrv2.tennisuniverse.com/mtf/images/icons/icon10.gif

Federer will be lucky to be no.3 after the Australian Open (he defends 2,000 points). Djokovic will pass him for sure, maybe Murray too. After that he will be too old to make a comeback.

I too would like to know the answer to this. They said it several times on the broadcast, and it is mentioned again in this article http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/news/352282,reach-repeat-basle-final.html

Off the top of my head, I know that McEnroe beat Connors 20 times and that Sampras beat Agassi 20 times, so there are two of the other five. I think it is a safe bet to say that none of the others were this lopsided, as to meet this many times implies that both players players are a cut above the rest, and generally top players are at least a little more competitive with one another.
