Default Bjorkman gives his analysis of Roddick's game

These comments are taken from the following article - released Sunday, 9/23/07.

Your thoughts?

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/ten...ory?id=3033025

-While Roddick's serve is still one of the main structural beams in his game, Bjorkman said he also deserves credit for his staying power in rallies.

"Sometimes it doesn't look that he moves well, but he does," said Bjorkman, who hadn't played Roddick since a Davis Cup tie in 2004. "Sort of the way he moves, long steps, it looks maybe sometimes not so smooth, but he's always there.

"Everyone speaks about his serve, but I think sometimes they forget about the variety of his game. He actually has good movement back from the baseline and also he makes a lot of returns. He's always been a great fighter. I think his backhand is much better now. I would say when I played him three years ago, you felt that if you came in on a good approach, it was really tough for him to make a pass. I think now he's much more confident to hit it." -

Yes - I don't think Roddick fans could ask for much better than that. Bjorkman's words here are like manna from heaven.

I wonder if there were any of those little cartoon hearts floating around his head while he made those comments.

Ducktards read the transcript hours ago. I haven't seen anyone's signature change. Sorry to disappoint you.

He was only saying that so it doesn't look like he got beaten by someone untalented.

Close match, shame Bjorkman is very old, he could of beaten Roddick if he was younger. Roddick is looking great at the moment.

Andy had a tough HC season, nice that even though it ended as usual, defeat to Roger in the Q of the USO, his form there lifted his spirits. Hope he is on the other side of the draw for AO.

Default Re: Bjorkman gives his analysis of Roddick's game

Bjorkman is right about the BH. Roddick's passes off of the BH are a lot better now and he also hits better in rallies with the BH You don't see that many sitters offered up any more. Roddick also gets his racquet on a lot of returns. I would disagree about the movement. Roddick's movement used to be a lot better when he was younger when he was carrying around a lot less weight.

Default Re: Bjorkman gives his analysis of Roddick's game

I agree with him, Roddick´s main weapon is his serve by far but his overall game is good, of course not at the same league as for example

Federer,Hewitt,Nadal,Nalbandian ,Djokovic,Safin -at his best-, etc


but anyway it is good and pretty solid.

Well, you know some ducktards have been fans of Bjorkman since long before Andy started playing pro tennis.

Jonas is such a great guy. I'm seriously dreading his leaving the tour although I know he has only a few years left. He, to me, is the epitome of class and grace on the tour and has been since Rafter left.
