He will do well to remain in the top 30 by the end of the year.

Not sure how much strength and determination he has left. There's only one tournament he very badly wants to win.

He'll retire when he believes he can't win Wimbledon anymore.

I'd like for Roddick to switch things up for once in his career and practice this off season on clay to challenge his footwork;and shots and he'd have a much better time come AO but this will never happen

Default Re: Your Expectations for Andy Roddick in 2012?

I feel his big chance-ship of ever winning Wimbledon again sailed in 2009, I'd be most surprised if he'd ever be able to match that performance again (in all honesty, I think he should have won that final).

So perhaps some minor titles still to come, but that's about it. The guy is obviously in a steep decline now.
I wouldn't mind being totally wrong about this as I consider Roddick perhaps one of the unluckiest top players in the entire history of tennis!

I think he can win a few 500s and maybe a master 1000, his serve is still lethal when its going well, he always has a chance with it.

Roddick: 'People want to get rid of me'

Ticker - Monday, March 5, 2012

Andy Roddick tells the Wall Street Journal that he can still be an elite player. The 29-year-old former No. 1, who has been battling injuries for the past two years, is 4-4 this year and has seen his ranking fall to No. 30, his lowest mark since July of 2001. However, Roddick only has 120 points to defend until the grass-court season begins. "Someone two years younger, at the ranking I'm at, still gets called up-and-coming," the 2003 U.S. Open champion said. "But for some reason, people want to get rid of me."

The thing is prior to getting injured after Memphis his form at least in my opinion in Memphis was really good so I'm not going to entirely say he's done for good.

I'm just going to say a top 20 finish with at least one title.

BIG break for Roddick IMHO that he just avoiding drawing the top four at Indian Wells and got Fish instead. A quarterfinal run isn't unrealistic.
