That fork is just a standard 1 1/8". The later model year Roubaix's have a tapered fork & depending upon the year, the tapers changed. For a 11 year old bike, I wouldn't worry too much about brand matching. There are plenty of new 1 1/8" forks on ebay from various bike manufacturers as well as after market brands. The only thing you need to be concerned with is if the fork that you find has the same rake as the one it is replacing.

The rake determines how a bike will handle. You could take your fork to a shop & ask them to determine what your's is & go from there. Buying a fork off ebay, I would always recommend buying new just like helmets. You don't know how close to the end of its lifespan an item is just by looking at it. Also by buying new, the steerer is uncut & so you don't have to worry if the fork is long enough for your purpose.
