Roddick takes Eastbourne Wildcard

Very surprised. Didn't think he'd bother. He definitely needs matches under his belt.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Roddick takes Eastbourne Wildcard

He needs it, he played pretty bad against ERV, though ERV played well too. though his seeding will be down to Kohli, If Kohli beats Nadal, Roddick will be unseeded, assuming Nadal beats Klizan.

Here's another one if Nalbandian wins queens, Roddick will be unseeded.

good-I wonder which lower-end top 100 player Roddick will lose to this time?

Re: Roddick takes Eastbourne Wildcard

Please do well, Andy. Please get past the first round at least.

Roddick didn't play super bad, well his baseline rallies were really bad, However, i think he would have beaten most of the players if he didn't face ERV who wasn't missing at all til the last games of the second set.

Re: Roddick takes Eastbourne Wildcard

Good decision, IMO. He needs match practice. Hopefully a couple of wins and then a solid performance at his perhaps last Wimbledon!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!


Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion!
