Australian Open, advantage Murray. He gets the job done on this surface.

French Open, no doubt, advantage Murray. Though if 09 FO Roddick turned up, who knows, maybe he could push Murray to 5. Some clown always does every year. Hed be more than capable.

Wimbledon - Advantage Roddick. Though I must say, Murray peak played in a better top heavy Grass era.

US Open - Advantage Roddick.

WTF - Equal chances here. Maybe ADV Roddick with his serve.

How do you see it going down?

Roddick with less talent has won a slam before Murray did and if Federer wasnt around Andy would have 4-5 GS.

roddick mentally is so under rented its not funny

murray is a better talent but not mentally

if both guys give it 100% i think murrays excellent return of serve wins it

but murray is incapable of playing well at slam finals it seems- hope im proved wrong and he wins one

Peak Roddick was 2003 when he had one of the top 5 forehands. Woulda been a tough test for Murray anywhere off clay.

AO: Murray
FO:Murray on kneecaps would win even in the damn dark
Wimbledon depends on which Roddick shows up.09 Roddick >>>> Murray but 2010;2011;2012 Murray >>>>>>>> Roddick
USO: 2011;2012 Murray >>>>>>>>>>>>> Roddick

Peak Murray? We haven't ever seen peak Murray, so we'll say 2011/2012 Murray for now. Peak Roddick was nothing very special.

Australian Open: Murray wins in 4.
French Open: Murray wins in 3, easy.
Wimbledon: Hmmmm, hard one. It'll be a 5 setter. I see Murray edging it.
US Open: Murray in 4.

Murray is far better on clay, better on hardcourt and around the same as peak Roddick on grass.

hard court - it really depends. If AO or European hard court, I'd say Murray. In US, I'd give it to Roddick but it'd be very close.
clay - it'd be a hilarious beatdown from Murray.
grass - this would be the tough one. Roddick had to be at absolute peak level to beat a not-peak level Murray at 2009 Wimbledon. If Murray is at peak level, I think he would have the edge on grass.

Both have very little talent. I give the edge to Roddick based on achievements, eventhough his slam was a fluke he did reach no.1.

Everything about Murray is awful, from his game, to his achievements, to his bad attitude and ugly personality. He is a born loser and will die a loser.

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.

2004 Andy Roddick beats Andy Murray on every surface except clay.

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.
