this is not the case between these two players. Watch the few doubles matches nadal plays at indian wells vs the few that roddick has played. Nadal is a very good good doubles player, he absolutely attacks the higher volleys, Roddick's volleys usually gives the other guy a 2nd chance at a pass. He is very passive at the net.
