Turn on your sarcasm detectors Gentlemen.
Is Federer the next Andy Roddick?
He should retire.
He could have a bright future ahead of him being Justin Gimbelstobb's co-anchor.
lol!!!! 10 Chars
I'm tired of commentators mentioning "the federer forehand" or the "federer serve". Let's face it, there are other guys on the tour that has a better forehand than he.
No, he'll retire and be compared to Borg for the rest of all time. ESPN will run a special every Thursday morning at 3AM eastern on what if he had played on...
Forehand losing pace for more spin, backhand getting weak, difficult to win from the baseline, weak shots on the run, a greatly deteriorating return of serve, and an improving serve.
Yeah, sounds like he was becoming the next Roddick. But then he played Monte Carlo and everything above was not true anymore.
I hope you are being sarcastic.
Please list these mysterious gentlemen.
I'm tired of commentators saying "inch perfect" and "Vintage Federer" when he does get the ball in.
(OP said keep sarcasm detectors ON).
I love it when Robbie says 'inch perfect'. It's his go-to line.
I thought it was funny when commentators said 'vintage Federer' back in 2004.
people are way too serious on this board.
oh yeah... Federer needs to flat'n out his forehand like how he was number one << --
The "next" ARod?
Aren't they already alike ? No backhand, good serve WHEN its on. Okay forehand, but too error-prone.
And NOW ..... (drum roll) talking to the spectators.
No, there arent. Sorry.
Both have a woman people can't believe are their partner and who are out of their respective leagues.
/prepares to get flamed
federer and roddick couldnt be more different. they're polar opposites. these joke threads r so annoying.
Do you mean Federer should forget the $500 haircuts and go to Roddicks clip joint???
Start scratching himself in between points?
Dissing the umpire?
Losing to himself?
Or make excuses for not playing clay tournaments?
Have a heart guys. Your being too mean to Roddick
^ I always though the haircut was 800 dollars.
(Nice avatar Morrissey)
great one !
c'mon bluescreen, this is a fun thread, and don't be so serious, man (as Johns just said). Its becos they are poles apart that we're having fun concocting similarities.
yeah, u're right. i should lighten up.
Hey guys lighten up already. Comparing Feds forehand or game to Roddick is like comparing Rafa's strokes to Arancha Sanchez-Vicario's loopy shots. :wink:
Federer needs to develop a better slice backhand cross court approaching the net...
Yep, Roger will probably be down 15-2 against himself soon. :shock:
needs to cut down on unforced errors
Yeah - we know how that ended - spank - spank!
... and start winning a couple of slams. Other than that everything is allright.
One way they are not close to being alike:
Hotness of Roddick's girlfriend >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Hotness of Fed's girlfriend
LOL! Haha, yeah Roddick's girlfriend is pretty hot.
