Here’s another player competing with Federer for a not-so-desirable showing.

Posted by tennisplanet on August 7, 2010

WASHINGTON- AUGUST 05: Andy Roddick

Roddick’s nose-dive appears to be even more sudden and vertical making Federer look like …… Federer. If this keeps up, without even escalating to another level, this may prove to be Roddick’s last year as a tennis pro.

Just a cursory look at the following numbers (since winning @ Miami) leaves you with no other conclusion:

Roland Garros: Lost to Teymuraz Gabashvili – Rd 3.

Queens: Lost to Dudi Sela – Rd 3 in straight sets.

Wimbledon: Lost to Yen-Hsun Lu – Rd 4.

Atlanta: Lost to Fish and Turtle – Semis in straight sets.

Washington: Lost to Simon – Rd 3 in straight sets.

Is marriage on the rocks already?

    Someone once said (I don’t remember where) that Roddick was ‘born to make Federer look good’. It seemed harsh at the time, but boy, it does seem true right now.

    Not only Roddick. 😉 On the other hand Rafa was born to weaken the weak era argument, no? 🙂 Thank you Rafa! The good thing is that Rafa is only five years younger than Rogie. This ensures that Feddie will keep putting effort on the remaining five years. Unlike Sampras who couldn’t find an answer at 32 to the ten years younger Federer. (BTW Happy Birthday Roger Federer and TP please create a Happy Birthday GOAT post). No?
