I'd like for Roddick to switch things up for once in his career and practice this off season on clay to challenge his footwork;and shots and he'd have a much better time come AO but this will never happen
"Make America great again" and "We want our Country back" is what they started yelling the minute a black man walked into the White House.

I feel his big chance-ship of ever winning Wimbledon again sailed in 2009, I'd be most surprised if he'd ever be able to match that performance again (in all honesty, I think he should have won that final).
So perhaps some minor titles still to come, but that's about it. The guy is obviously in a steep decline now.
I wouldn't mind being totally wrong about this as I consider Roddick perhaps one of the unluckiest top players in the entire history of tennis!
Andy Roddick tells the Wall Street Journal that he can still be an elite player. The 29-year-old former No. 1, who has been battling injuries for the past two years, is 4-4 this year and has seen his ranking fall to No. 30, his lowest mark since July of 2001. However, Roddick only has 120 points to defend until the grass-court season begins. "Someone two years younger, at the ranking I'm at, still gets called up-and-coming," the 2003 U.S. Open champion said. "But for some reason, people want to get rid of me."
“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
