The guy has lost too many matches he should have won in the last couple of years. Not sure if he wil ever win another slam, let alone stay as a top five player very consistently. Unlike the great, great champions, Roddick seems unable to win matches when things go badly--at least the big matches. Now, four coaches in three years or whatever. This guy needs more touch and creativity in his game. He needs to be able to go to other strategies when things aren't going his way. While he played well against Bhagdatis, he wasn't able to expose the guy's weaknesses very well at all. I still think the Pure Drive is not the perfect racket for Roddick. I think he could still have a brilliant serve and forehand with other sticks. Pete Sampras was able to do incredible things on his serve with a thin-beamed 85 sq. inch frame. Roddick is limited with being able to increase his finesse ability and touch shots with that racket--unless he has brilliant hands--which he doesn't. So, maybe he needs to consider the Pure Control if he wants to stay with Babolat or even the Pure Storm. The Pure Drive is not very good for certain shots and does not provide the pinpoint control Roddick often lacks. Just my thoughts. I know it goes beyond just changing rackets. But, that is a good place to start. Then, sticking with the same coach for a while and also, maybe working with a Sports Psychologist. Ever since I saw Roddick feebly go down to Nadal at the 2004 Davis Cup final, I've thought he lacks something--both mentally and with his game. Also, he has not closed the gap between he and Federer. In fact, the gap has widened. We know Roddick got in great shape, worked on his footwork and lost those extra 7-8 pounds. But, his game has NOT improved. Time to start some new things--including moving away for the Pure Drive. It is not a great racket for superb control, slice backhands, "touch" shots, lobs, soft volleys-etc. He does not need only the Pure Drive to serve great. In fact, his ability to paint the corners of the service box would improve with the Pure Control or perhaps another brand.
