#1: Might be usefull to play a Dinker against Roddick.
He seems lately to loose easily his temper.

Keep your shots deep.

Try to keep the ball out of his "wheelhouse," the height at which he can most comfortably hit the ball.
use a fairly high topspin that kicks up above his shoulders.

Mix up the speeds and spins on your shots

See what happens if you attack at net.

Have fun and Good luck!
