Murray is demonstrably improving,look at the results for AM v AR 2006-7 and you will note AR of 5-6 years ago was no match for AM, that is AM not at his peak and AR nearest his.

P.S I am quite fond of AR off court.

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

if murray played a roddick who was on one leg at a RG final- murray would stil find a way to lose

ok so us open 2008 he played a very tough federer
and ao 2010 federer was vintage

but murray has always been a great matchup vs djokovic- there is no excuse for gettting owned like he did to nole at the ao final

Peak Roddick was actually good remember?! Not this evil twin who's been playing for the last 5 years or so . He had the serve and the forehand, and he wouldn't be afraid of Murray's slice.

I vote peak Roddick on every surface except clay h:.

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.
Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Berdych - 10 Wimbledon titles, 3 additional Wimbledon finals..

>

Hewits Wimbledon title and Philippoussis solitary final.

Not withstanding the fact that AROD and Murray had to contend with a past peak but very good Hewitt for at least 2-3 Wimbledons in the latter stage of the noughties.

As for Federer, again, both had to deal with him on both court speeds about the same number of years.

Peak Roddick had two things that Murray has never had. Two huge weapons. The forehand and the serve. On grass especially he is underrated. He'd potentially be sitting on 4 Wimbledons without Federer. That's ignoring '06-'08.

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

Peak Roddick was an absolute beast. Far more confident than he is now, plus the immense serve and forehand combo to back it up. Murray would have little chance on grass and the opposite true for the dirt. Hard courts would favour Roddick as well.

I'd say Roddick at USO and Wimbledon for sure and at least 60% on rebound ace with 40% chance on today's AO surface. For the FO, Murray takes it. For those who say Murray has a 50/50 (lolwhat?) chance at the USO, go watch the way Roddick played in the 2006 USO final.

Wait, this talking if they played each other? Murray whips Roddick on any surface apart from old s/v grass.

Peak Roddick, not hard to answer.

At least he won a slam and was in the top 10 longer.

Murray would probably win on clay. Roddick on the other surfaces.

Nadal, Djokovic and Berdych are not better on grass than Hewitt and Philippoussis. Playing on green clay and winning/making finals doesn't make them better grass courters.
