Will Roddick ever win another Grand Slam?

With Federer and Nadal clearly superior, with Hewitt and Safin still major obstacles, with Agassi perhaps around another year or so, with all the up and comers who are starting to threaten him and will only continue to do so more in the future, with the technical flaws in his game, does Roddick have any more slams in him before he retires in 6 years or so?

He'll win one whenever Mauresmo wins one.

Yeah when everybody else in the top 10 suffers from a last minute case of German Measles and has to withdraw.     :whistle:

Highly unlikely, but anything's possible.
Be the change that you seek.

Yeah, I think he'll win one more at some point. That serve should give pretty good odds.

I give him better odds than Hewitt of ever winning another anyway, mainly due to the two big weapons, serve and forehand, give him a punchers chance if you will.   It will have to be a slam that everything goes right, and things fall into place perfectly for him though if it happens.

And one of the things that DEFINITELY needs to go right for him if he wants to win another slam is to avoid Fed.

Injury depleted and favorable draws can't get him past 4R.

I'm a huge doubter.
