What part of this is so hard to understand for some Fedtards? (Or Roddicktards) for that matter...

People here pretend as if Roddick has quality comparable to Sampras, Agassi, and McEnroe (maybe to defend their argument that Fed had "tough" competition). Unfortunately, Roddick is one of the most one dimensional players, even during his prime, unfortunately not a good all around player. Tipsarevic has a good all around game, just a mentally weak and inconsistent player.
Have you been reading the responses in this thread? Fedtards aren't the only ones laughing at your claim that Tipsy is a bigger threat/better player/whatever you wanna call him than Roddick.

Roddick, with his one dimensional skills, managed to make more slam finals than Tips would probably make in his entire career. It's the results that matter. You can say that someone like Dimitrov or whomever has more talent than Roddick, but so what? Is he more dangerous? Obviously not. What has Tips done in his career to make him better or more dangerous than Roddick? Taking Fed to 5 sets in AO 2008? He didn't win that match, did he?
