mangoes· Comparisons are Odious
I couldn't agree with you anymore. Ever since that Wimbledon final when Andy came out and won the first set by pounding Ace after Ace at Roger, the lessons started. Roger in those other sets gave the rest of the tour their first lesson on how to deal with Andy. And since then, those on the tour realized that after take away the impact of the big serve, there isn't much left.Federerhingis said:Actually Federer is Andy's main problem, but not for just beating him and dominating their rivalry, but instead for showing the rest of the world how you can dismantle Roddicks big game. Once you neutralize that serve and can combat his uber forehand, hes got no where to go but back home. His defense is still the worst among the top 10 players, his return of serve is mediocre at best relative to the top players and his transition game is suspect. I really agree with Vincayou here, Federer is his main problem, because he not only dominates him, but he's gotten into his brain and the rest of the tour is catching up from the free lessons Federer has given them, its been a series of lectures: how to dismantle Roddick lessons 1-10.
In life, not only in tennis, at some point, someone will open the beautiful wrappings and see what's inside.
