This is what I've been trying to convey.

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.

Roddick was pretty much a 2 weapon guy.. Big Serve, big FH (Then his FH went bye and bye and all he became was just a serve). He never improved the BH, was absolutely pathetic at the net, especially his transition game, and never worked on that despite it being a good strategy to follow his big serve, never really improved the aggressive overrall baseline game and resorted to pushing.. It was horrible to watch.. Horribly one dimensional.. You broke through his serve, he had nothing to fall back on really.. his on and off court antics only further damaged his credibility IMO.


Of course the fards will try until the end of time to make Roddick into a Mac, Courier, Pete Andre, Connors type rival to further their agenda and try to make Fed's main rival during a 4 year time span more impressive then he really was ( despite getting destroyed by OLD Sampras at the USO, and Agassi destroying him just about every time they met), most fans knew better.

Roddick was a good player.. Never a great player.. Not to say Tipsy is a great player but certainly you can argue he has more game then A-Rod does.

Even if that's true (which is debatable) - being "weak and inconsistent" is part of what makes Tipsarevic not a great player. So ergo, even if he has the weapons you speak of, he has not been able to consolidate and therefore only has 2 titles to his name and is therefore a lesser player than Roddick.

There are a lot of players more talented than Djokovic and Nadal but because Djokovic and Nadal are more mentally strong, they have been able to make more of their careers - and who's to say these guys do not deserve respect for that? One can say that Nalbandian has better talent than Nadal but who's the bigger threat? It's always going to be Nadal because he is more mentally strong and consistent.

Actually you guys want to keep on demeaning Roddick to stress that Federer had a weak competition but if Roddick is such a slouch, he wouldn't have made it to 4 other grandslam finals aside from the one he won. You can fluke your way to one slam win but reaching 5 GS finals is no small feat and requires a tough player. Roddick has been able to do way more than Tipsarevic will probably be able to do in his entire career.

You can speak of so called weapons and talents if you want, but if Tipsarevic does not know how to use this supposedly great weapons he has - he is a weak player and Roddick's achievements will prove that he is better.

Tipsarevic does have a lot of talent, but that makes him no different than the dozens of other talented players that never did jack at the professional level.

Roddick, for all his faults, has a slam to his resume, other finals appearances, a year end number one and in the top 8 of the world for nearly a decade. He's had an accomplished career. This thread is so stupid on so many levels.

BigJohn, change the question to who is the more talented player. This will be a more interesting question.

Tipsy is easily the more talented player.

Tipsy of course. He won KL and Moscow.

He is also overweight but is in the top 10.

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?
