Djokovic doing what Roddick could only dream about.
Not quite. Djokovic served 1st in the final set. If anything, Fed was in the same shoes as Roddick, having to hold serve to stay in the match.Yep. Basically that. But Roddick blew many opportunities. And imo Fed was playing just as well as in 2009 Wimbledon Final. Same scenario. Djokovic pulled through unlike Roddick.
So he should, he Rocky training montaged himself that year, he was phenomenal, his athleticism was right back where at its peak, and he was excellent at Wimbledon.Someone who has competed to the best of their abilities and given it their all? You can still take pride out of a loss, I know I think Roddick can feel proud of his performance in that Wimbledon final.
Plus didn't he just buy a World Team Tennis team or something?I am not entirely sure but I do believe he has a pretty nice wife to bang and pretty much enough money to help him resolve the depresion
Well, fair dooze, Roddick DID push Federer harder at a Wimbledon final than any other guy not named Nadal or Djokovic. All 3 matches were hard-fought 5 setters. The difference was that, whilst the other 2 managed to cross the finish line, Roddick stumbled at the very last hurdle. So I think the comparison is fair in this context!
Yeah I don't think you should bash on Roddick's success because he's done way more than you and I bet that he can crush your pride by beating you to a pulp over and over again.Who has pride when losing?
The only people Federer has played in a Wimbledon final are Philippoussis, Roddick (x3), Nadal (x3), Murray, and Djokovic.Well, fair dooze, Roddick DID push Federer harder at a Wimbledon final than any other guy not named Nadal or Djokovic.

lol, why Roger never could serve like this against Nadal? And he never gives up against other guys, people I think he dislikes like Djokovic...andyroddick @andyroddick · 3h
Best I've seen Roger serve since ....... Damn it
No truer words have been spoken.
This. I agree. I don't get why is Djokovic compared to Roddick at all.
I have to ask you, are you some spoiled british royal kid because the amount of arrogance and foolishness in you is just too damn high.This. I agree. I don't get why is Djokovic compared to Roddick at all.
7 slams vs 1 slam
2 Wimbledons vs 0 Wimbledons
Why did't OP compare say John McEnroe and Roscoe Tanner and ask how does Tanner feel about McEnroe beating Borg in W final in 1981 after losing the final to Borg in 5 sets in 1979?
I agree. Novak is a great Player but not a good grass courter. against 2003-2010 federer he would have lost yesterday. even against prime grass nadal he would have probably lost.
