2005: Acasuso, in 5 (2nd round)
2006: A.Martin, in straights, although he retired from that (1st round)
How many times did he get past the 2nd round? Not once.
Sargsian? He was more of a fast court player, wasn't he?
I don't know much about Mutis, but from his result, he's far below Murray's opponents.
Acasuso was the only decent claycourter Roddick played here, and he lost.
He couldn't even beat Alberto Martin
By the way, Murray has beaten Acasuso at RG, fairly comfortably.
Murray's losses during his (so far) peak years at RG:
2008: Almagro, in 4 sets (3rd round)
2009: Gonzalez, in 4 (quarter-finals)
2010: Berdych, in straights (4th round)
2011: Nadal, in straights (in the semi-final)
How many times did he get past the 2nd round? All 4 times. Something Roddick couldn't even do once at his peak. What a joke.
Nadal on clay? One of the two best claycourters of all time, the other being the almighty Borg.
Almagro and Berdych are some of the best claycourters around. Gonzalez was too.
Roddick's opponents are nowhere near the level any of these players were. Some of the players Murray beat were also above them on clay.
On clay, Andy completely destroys Roddick.
