Go ahead and put Roger Federer's name in the record books, folks. Andy Roddick defeated Andy Murray in the other half of the Wimbeldon semifinal's today and if there is one thing we know about Andy Roddick, it's that he can't beat Roger Federer. Federer owns a career record of 18-2 versus the American and many of those matches were over before Roddick picked up his tennis racket.
I wouldn't expect any different in the finals, although I'd like to see an American win Wimbledon. Federer is a dominant force on the grassy confines of Centre Court and Roddick would have to display his best ever performance to deter Federer's attempt at fifteen slams. Barring a miracle, tennis will have a new face atop their hall of records in a few short days.
