The difference is simple. Pete was a serve and volleyer, a style of play that makes it tougher to hold when you are having an off day. Roddick on an off day could still hold because he could grind out a service game fairly easily against anybody outside the top ten. Plus Andy left the game before his game had really declined. Pete's last years on tour were pretty poor expect that final US open title which made it all worthwhile. So that is going to skew the career numbers. At his peak, Pete had the better serve
