    Andy Roddick's weaknesses

    I just don't think he goes for his shots anymore. Same with his serve. He has found he can still be a top 5 player and except for some other guys - whip everyone else on tour with his game.

    Andy Roddick's weaknesses

    Wow your analysis seems so backwards. Andy is fitter and stronger than he has ever been. If you doubt that look at recent shots of him with his shirt off compared to a few years ago. The guy has put on a lot of muscle while still being cut. Did you see his match against Johanson? He was...

    Federer should have lost

    I take it you missed the 2005 masters final which Nalbandian won? Nalbandian is a threat to Federer on any surface.

    Do you feel Blake is stiff?

    Sampras Sighting

    Sampras was spraying balls all over the place and couldnt get a backhand in before his exhibition. I think he will do fine in matches, not enough to beat Federer of course :).

    Pro's shots powerful because of leaded racket?
