just hope they dont play any quality players the first week. the USO will probably hook their draws up. i think blake has a lil edge though.

Blake should do better. He has played better then Roddick so far this year so i dont see why anything would change.

Blake. Blake can actually go toe-to-toe with players like Nadal and Agassi. Roddick loses in the first round to a journeyman?

A-Rod, Blake hasn't proven himself at Majors yet.

The draw at the US Open will be much more competitive than the RCA.

I'll tell you when I see the draw.

One will make it to the quarter finals, and Neither will make it past the quarter finals

IMO Roddick is too one dimensional right now and looks like he gets demoralized very quickly when things start going wrong.

I'm saying Blake will get to the semis, but choke in a 5 set thriller to Nalbandian, 6-2, 6-1, 5-7, 4-6, 11-13

I think Blake might even have a shot at winning the title this year seeing as how he did last year

They play a 5th set tiebreaker at the USO, but I do think Blake will be deep into the second week, especially if he can keep his ranking at 5th or even climb to 4th(which would be difficult before the USO unless he wins one of the AMS events).

Depends on the draw. I still favor Blake.

I think Andy Roddick may show his old form at da USO that the only reason i voted for him. I am a huge blake fan though.

Blake has reached one slam QF out of 18 majors played. He still has a lot to prove to get to Roddicks level(3 slam finals, 3 slam sf's)

And then there's the 0-9 factor.

You gotta go with Roddick here, Blake has yet to prove himself in the Grand Slams.

So I presume you didn't see any of the last US and Aussie opens. to add to the chances of blake I would also like to remind you that he is a top 10 player right at the moment, Roddick isn't, so being that the situation, Roddick will most likely have a tougher draw to deal with

Andy Roddick has won the U.S. Open and gotten to two finals of Wimbledon (which he arguably would have won had Federer not been in the final) with his one dimensional game. Now that he has Jimmy Connors as his coach, and just a little advice he nearly beat Blake at the RCA dome with some excellent play that I haven't seen from Roddick for a VERY long time. I believe Andy will go much farther then people expect him to go.

Do you really think Blake could score a 6-2, 6-1 against Nalbandian, and David can only win his sets by one break?

Nalbandian tends to have a problem of choking in the big matches early on for some reason, just look at the TMC at Shanghai.

Blake will obviously be the better player at the Open but its still an open field...although Federer is an obstacle

I don't mind Blake losing in a tight match. I just don't want him to walk away from the match like he did at Wimbledon. R u serious, 6-1, 6-0 or somethg like that. Please

I think both players will do well but it will depend on the draw to see who has a better uso.

I think if Roddick keeps playing well throughout the summer, he can make it far in the USO (QF, SF) and I hope it happens.

Something bothers me about Blake's mentality, when I watch his matches something is always in the back of my mind telling me that he is going to crack mentally, I don't know what it is but I always get this feeling when I watch him play (this was prior to this years Wimby also).

The draw will, of course, play a big role too, I wonder how the seedings will pan out.

For this year, I vote for Blake. No matter what the reason, Roddick is having a tough year, so have to vote for Blake.
