First off, I should let you know that I don’t know the answer to the above question. If I did, that would make me a psychic & I probably would be on tv or something like that. However, I think at this time it is safe to assume Roddick is done as a consistent top 10 player. His baseline or net game was never amongst the upper echelon of Men’s tennis, and his serve has now fallen back as well. He is 2-3 on the year so far, with losses coming against three players ranked outside the top 60, and no marquee wins on his resume either. Of course, when you are losing
to the likes of Xavier Malisse in the first round in Memphis, you don’t really give yourself a shot at marquee wins. That being said…I am certainly rooting for a final push from Roddick (and Blake, for that matter). If he can rediscover some of his service magic, it will breed confidence, which is really vital at the professional level. Is he going to win another major, or even a master’s event again? No, probably not. That isn’t what I’m after though…I just want him to be relevant again.
Speaking of Roddick…great back & forth with Tignor and a Roddick fan.
Don’t often post these types of articles, but a really insightful lesson of sorts.
