He still is... only his footwork is not up-to-date. I also think he is very stiff on the court. And, yes, he is not a natural volleyer.

The game has just advanced since he was on top. Federer wasnt really Federer yet, still crushed Roddick 2 of the 3 times they played and barely lost the other, despite Roddick barely ending the year as the "computer" #1; Nadal wasnt even around yet, neither was Djokovic, Hewitt was in a slump and did well vs Roddick in 2004-2005 once he came out of his slump, Nalbandian was only starting to emerge as a threat, Safin was out injured all year but came back as a threat for 2004-2005 anyway.

Why even bother saying this stuff? You can apply this to any player or any team in just about any sport. Roddick is still very very good.

Off course not. People are being ridiculous.
