Just hope the +30 year olds keep making good results and that Roger plays until 2016 Olympic Games, that would be great. (I'm greedy I know.)
I know man! makes us fell old. although i don't feel like it but i know, i told myself by the time i see roddick or fed retire i know my age is getting up there.

Sad to see one of the very best players of the last 10 years go.

Re: Andy Roddick

He comes full circle

Starts and finishes his title count at Atlanta. What a legend

This is an interesting comment by Haas. Maybe he knows something we don't? If it's true that Andy's going to become a dad, that might be playing a big part in why he's choosing to leave now as well.

Re: Andy Roddick

Very curious to see what he does now. I can't see him playing golf full time. Coaching? I doubt it. Maybe he'll enter the senior's tour in a couple years but that's not a full time job either.

I bet he'll end up a commentator/presenter on ESPN.

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

He might a PR's worst nightmare but he is very entertaining without trying.

Re: Andy Roddick

I remember I stayed up all night, watching this epic battle when I was like 10 yo. Finished at like 1 am.

Never been a massive fan of Roddick's style of play, but he's been a fixture on the tour for years, and I've always admired his persistence and thoroughly enjoyed his self-deprecating sense of humor. His retirement is a loss to the tour; he's a great personality, and I'm sorry to see him go. Best of luck in your post-retirement career, Andy
