    Does anyone think Roddick or Hewitt will ever beat Nadal head to head in a match again? I highly doubt it. There chances are so close to nothing on any surface now that I cant see it happening.

    Probably not but if they play on fast hardcourts than they have a shot.

    This is tennis, stranger things has happened in the past, but I think they both will beat him in the future.

    I think they will both beat him in the future. On a hard court they have the best chance, but they would never be favored against him. I think Roddick would have a better chance on a fast court due to his serve, Hewitt on a slower hard court because of his defensive abilities. I don't think they would beat him often, but once is definitely possible.

    I voted Roddick but not Hewitt. Even though I'm a Hewitt fan, I don't see how he can hurt Nadal. Nadal is better at what Hewitt's good at- defence hard running, great competitivity on every point- and has added in great variety and the ability to crack winners.

    Roddick on a fast court, and possibly on grass, may still have a chance because of that big serve (i know, kinduva given right?) and his aggression.

    Interesting votes so far:

    4 for Hewitt yes, Roddick no.
    4 for Roddick yes, Hewitt no.
    6 for neither beating him ever again
    6 for both beating him again

    So for both guys you half, 10 out of 20, voting that that guy-Roddick or Hewitt, will beat Nadal again, 10 voting never again for each guy.

    Not really. There are many players with more potential to beat Nadal in the future higher then Hewitt or Roddick have, despite Roddicks current official #4 ranking. As for Hewitt, he isnt even ranked in the top 10 and hasnt been for awhile.

    I think both Hewitt and Roddick can beat Nadal again. Both these players could beat Nadal on a fast hard court in my opinion.
