goodness. Roddick has had many chances to win Wimbledon and he always came up short. He already won his 1 lucky slam. It won't happen again.

With his ranking going to the toilet, he might face Nadal, Fed, joker etc.. in the first round.
Question is: Will he pass the 1st round?

No, he cannot. Completely different time, and the difference in ability of Goran to A-Rod is simply too stark to compare. Goran's serve was on a different level than Roddick's declining serve is.

Nalbandian should have beaten Roddick in that 2003 US open semi. Roddick would be slamless . The fact that he actually has a major and someone like Nalbandian or Murray don't have one is . Murray will win one of course but he is cutting it close.

I agree. Yes, Roddick in his prime was a fighter and he pushed thru with unlikely wins. That said, he was quite lucky to win his USO title. And he didn't play well enough to win Wimbledon, despite the chances he had. The one GS he has is more than enough. Any talk of him winning another Slam before he retires is just plain nostalgia rearing its head.

I agree that currently Andy Roddick's serve is not anywhere near where Goran's was when he shocked everyone at Wimbledon BUT if Roddick gets his serve back through some hard work then he can definitely get the job done POTENTIALLY. it's certainly arguable that Andy Roddick is the best server there ever has been, I mean his unusual toss and the pace at which he serves. incredible serve

Goran was a nutcase. He could have been a multiple W winner, he had the skills but he was simply to nervous on the court. I still remember that match against Agassi that he lost, when he had to win. AR is done, he knows it, everyone knows it. I've always seen him as an one dimensional player with simply not enough skills. sure, great serve, lalala. There are too many players who can beat him, he is also not getting any younger. so, no it's not happening. Andy was lucky enough to win the USO and be a #1 for a little bit.

Perhaps against "Crazy" Dani Koellerer, yes.

The difference with the Pat Rafter and Goran final was that you didn't want both of them to lose. Both were such great guys, so charismatic and so deserving. I'm never going to see a match like that again where I'm simultaneously elated and crushed at the same time.

Can Andy do it?

Would it make the same great sentimental story like Goran's run in 2001 if Andy finally won Wimbledon too? Or is he too much of a dick compared to him?
Against the SUPER BIG 4?
Surely not!

i don't think Roddick can. He already dropped on the rankings. Well, hopefully, his win over Roger will give him a boost and made a little on the GS and ATP tournaments.

do you not remember Queens vs Murray last year? vs. Fed he would also be eliminated, same with the other top 4, even Tomic etc would probs over power him. A push to the Semi's yes, a win?, more chance of Cliff Richard moonballing his way to French Open victory that Roddick securing Wimby
