I never said he wasn't. But it's blasphemy to claim that Roddick was the "heavy favorite to win" as 2001 was his first full year on the tour, Andy was still a kiddo at the time and Ivanisevic despite being in a slump still had that giant serve to give him a shot in the match, especially given Roddick's mediocre return.
