It's weird isn't it. I remember watching both Lleyton and Andy R at the start of their careers, especially Andy at the French Open. He was like Bambi on ice, all arms, legs and heart. He cramped really badly. It was excrutiating to watch but I fell in love with Roddick (in a maternal way
) there and then. He managed to reach the next match against Hewitt but retired pretty quickly through injury.
I thought it was the beginning of a rivalry between the two that would rival Sampras nd Agassi.
But it hasn't turned out that way. So no predictions from me. I hope top 3, but tennis is a funny old game and throws up some surprises.
Am I the only one who thinks Donald Young is over hyped? Nadal, Gasquet and Dokovic plus Monfils are going to be Andy's rivals, but I think Fed is an even better player than Pete Sampras, and, injuries permitting, will dominate the game for another 5 years.
