Default Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Peak Roddick would beat Murray at the USO without a shadow of a doubt.

Roddick would also beat Muzza at Wimbledon, pulling through with superior mental strength, Murray failing once again at SW19.

The French Open would probably be Murray in 4.

The AO would go 5 sets.

The WTF would be 50/50.

Default Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Murray is a much better player IMHO. sure Roddick won a slam but I think that Murray is a more versatile player. Roddick is so predictable. serve, serve and serve some more.... I do have to say one thing tho... I really don't understand what happened to his FH.
I just don't understand how Roddick regressed so much. Sure, Fed happened to him but still ... I think he's had so many things going for him.

Murray will win a slam. I still believe in him. He was very close at the AO but as I mentioned before Djokovic is a monster right now. I like Murray so much... I think he has a big heart and he is a great guy. there is so much hate for him on MTF. I really don't get it.

I think that both Djokovic and Murray are fantastic guys.

I was watching the 2004 Wimbledon Final and Roddick was hitting MASSIVE forehands I mean he was pushing Peak Fed around.

but that's the thing. His FH just simply disappeared. a young Roddick was good. I think that he tried to change too many things in his game in order to compete with Fed and he got nowhere. I really think that he should have stayed with his old game... the one that brought him his first slam. Roddick has experimented too much and look where he is now.

Default Re: Peak Andy Murray vs Peak Andy Roddick, surface by surface

Roddick with his serve at 70% and crushing the forehand(Top 5 for sure in peak form) would give Murray more than he bargained for everywhere but clay. Murray has too many mental lapses, even when in good form. You can't give away breaks against a peak Roddick, he will roll you over.

USO and Wimbledon is a decisive advantage to Roddick. AO is perhaps 50/50. FO obvious big edge to Murray.

Why are people saying Murray is a certain win over Roddick at the French Open?

Murray ain't exactly a clay demon you know.

I pick peak Roddick to beat peak Murray in straights on every surface.

Lolwot, if Murray is not already declining, he has maximum 2 months left of his 'peak' level. And it was not good enough to win a slam.

Peak Roddick got done over by Sargis Sargsian, Olivier Mutis and Jose Acasuso in round 2 at RG.

Peak Roddick would have a great chance at the USO and Wimbledon because his serve in 2003 and his forehand were among the best there was.

At the AO, it would be quite tight with Murray maybe favourite. No one's being nostalgic by saying peak Roddick is comparable, as he actually is when he could strike the forehand like he did then.

AO- Murray just
RG- Murray easily
W- Roddick
USO- 50/50

Plus don't forget the courts in 03-04 are about a million times faster than the courts Murray's had his title attempts on.

I don't think Murray has peaked yet, so it's hard to say. But based on match up, Murray being a nightmare matchup for Roddick's style of play, I'd have to give Muzzah the edge on all but the fastest surfaces.
