Do you think Roddick will come out of retirement with the win?
 
With his win against Milos, do you think he'll come out of retirement? He was playing much more aggressively, less slicing and great forehand shots.

Ross K 11-17-2012 11:17 PM

Doubt it. What's the point? He too old, his game's too ragged, to make a proper dent at the higher end of the game with consistency.

It's not the 3.0's that are handing out advice, it's the 4.0's who think they know what they're talking about.

Full disclosure, I stole it from mens tennis forums dot com years ago and started a thread here. Forgot about it for years, but this thread inspired the memory in me. Had to add the bit about exos, for some reason it didn't make it over to this forum. :)

Here's the original thread if you want to bump it and suggest new edits. http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=132982

Only if Brooklyn gets really tired of him hanging around the house.

NadalAgassi 11-19-2012 10:06 AM

No. Winning a one match exhibition vs someone who isnt even a top player himself in no way compares to week to week tournament tennis.

jokinla 11-19-2012 10:09 AM

Absolutely, after beating Raonic while clowning around doing impersonations, and serving with considerably less mph's, he probably has all the confidence in the world and will be a threat at the Australian.

If we deleted all threads that match with one of these reasons, this forum would be empty.

I love it though, I'm saving this and using it in the future if I see a good opportunity! And the last reason that you added yourself totally belongs in this list.

kimbahpnam 11-19-2012 04:21 PM

by this logic Kuerten should come back after beating Djokovic!!!

Kuerten should come back and force all his opponents to wear a Guga wig!

Yep, and Sampras was world #1 again after beating Fed a few years ago.

NLBwell 11-20-2012 11:26 AM

For one match on a fast court set up to give Sampras the best chance to win -- Yeah, maybe he was.
Which is pretty impressive. However, past that - No.

(As I said at the time, there have been guys who were retired who came back to play Davis Cup and turned in great one-shot performances, so who knows.)

Probably not

Federer20042006 11-24-2012 12:23 PM

I think Roddick should be a commentator. If they let him say what he wanted, it could be awesome.

boredone3456 11-24-2012 01:15 PM

Yes, and by virtue of this win he is now the favorite to win the Australian Open as well

Did I mention I'm the Queen of England?

DolgoSantoro 11-24-2012 02:02 PM

I'd love it if Roddick became a commentator, he usually has something interesting to say. But he isn't coming out of retirement. He didn't retire because he couldn't play well occasionally, he reached the 4th round of his last tournament. He retired because he couldn't consistently play well and trying to do so was just physically and mentally exhausting him.
