How many slams does this Andy win?

If he showed up playing like this in finals.

IMO 3. Wimbledon twice, 2009, 2006, US Open once 2003.

Doubles 12-28-2012 02:48 PM

The same number he won during the rest of his career: one.

Retaliation 12-28-2012 02:50 PM

I see 3-ish...he started pretty late, and loses to random citizens sometimes.

veroniquem 12-28-2012 02:53 PM

He should win Wimbledon. With Fed getting older, Rafa likely to take time recovering from his long break and Djoko not that big of a threat on grass, it's a golden opportunity for Murray in 2013. Let's see what he does with it.

Amelie Mauresmo 12-28-2012 02:58 PM

At least one more slam. I think Murray's going to win another slam for sure.

Steve0904 12-28-2012 03:07 PM

You people do realize he's talking about Andy Roddick right? Not Andy Murray.

As it is, I think he was only winning 1 in this form, USO 2003 which is the one he won anyway. The reason I say this is because he played about 10 times better in his prime than he did in that video.

veroniquem 12-28-2012 03:10 PM

Oops my bad. I didn't watch the video but I don't understand the point since Roddick has already retired. It's much more interesting to answer that question about Murray.

Amelie Mauresmo 12-28-2012 03:10 PM

Oops I messed up too LOL!

Retaliation 12-28-2012 03:13 PM

Me too! Ooops.

Same as he did during his career, probably - people seem to forget as hard as prime Roddick blasted the ball, prime Federer usually ate pace for lunch AND read Roddick's serve better than anyone.

That said, Roddick probably would have Wimbledon 04 if not for the rain delay - up until that point Federer wasn't making any tactical adjustments to handle Roddick's power off the ground. A shame, too - Federer was having some real issues dealing with Andy's monster FH that day,

Prime Roddick, USO 2003 was the best he got. He should've won more slams, tbh. He just got really, really unlucky that every time he was in slam-winning form he ran into Fed. Every, single, time.

I agree. It is better to answer the question about Murray.

It's been much the same for both Andys. 3 out of Murray's 4 Slam final losses came against Federer, the last one most recently at Wimbledon. So far, Federer seems to be the Slam nemesis for any player called Andy!

wy2sl0 12-28-2012 06:47 PM

Well I think like Roger, Andy's backhand got significantly better as he got older. He also moved WAY BETTER when he was younger, however he was much stronger as he got older, like Fed is.

He was a much more rounded player at 25 than 23, so I am asking what if he stayed playing uber aggressive with an improved backhand. It isn't like he was terrible, I mean he has a winning H2H against Djoker. Yeah Fed read the serve impeccably, however I feel the 2009 Andy was a couple mistakes away from winning, and could have also *possibly* won in 04 as said.

ShoeShiner 12-28-2012 06:49 PM

Poor Roddick, he should get more 1-2 slam, I like him.

I think Murray can beat Fed in a slam now, but the question is can he beat Ralph in a Wimby SF or at USO?

90's Clay 12-28-2012 07:03 PM

Roddick was more times then not was figured out by most of the top guys so who knows (Agassi, Hewitt, Fed figured Roddick out pretty quick)

Once you got Roddick into a rally fest, and got back his serve, he was pretty quick to fold since he didn't have a well rounded game

Well, of course he's already beaten Nadal at a USO semi (2008). Wimby remains to be seen.

Career-wise? More positive than in the past I would say 6 slams would be the most but could be less like 4 slams.
