The real Andy Roddick...thanks ACE magazine!

I read in ACE magazine that Roddick was filmed by a US TV crew during the US Open gratefully receiving birthday cards from some kids...but he was, unfortunately for him, also caught on camera screwing up the cards and throwing them in a nearby trashcan shortly after.

No-one would expect stars to keep "fanmail"...but that was a little heartless. He could, for instance, have disposed of the cards at home.

My estimations of Roddick have dropped somewhat.

Wiped his ass with the kids is more appropriate in the context of the matter.

Hate to be the voice of reason... but I'm sure the fan books the wack jobs on this board send players like Federer and Safin end up in the thrash pile as well!

Re: The real Andy Roddick...thanks ACE magazine!

For some reason I'm reminded of all those condolence books being tossed out by the British royal family after Princess Diana's death.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

The first time I visited this site I went to the players forums and was scared by the people there, I was 100% sure that at least half of them where stalkers lol.

Re: The real Andy Roddick...thanks ACE magazine!

I'll quote the entire passage for you guys...

What a rotter!

"A publicity stunt for Andy Roddick backfired during the opening week. The American was filmed by host broadcaster USA Network graciously accepting birthday cards from young children. Unfortunately for Roddick, who turned 24 on 30 August, the cameras picked him up screwing up the cards and throwing them into a rubbish bin as he walked away." (- page 50...for the benefit of other ACE Magazine readers).

Re: The real Andy Roddick...thanks ACE magazine!

I've always seen Roddick as a crowd-pleaser, when he throws his racket and sticks his tongue out. But that's just his way of getting angry. I can almost imagine this, because I've seen some pretty harsh words towards umpires.

Chuck Norris does not go hunting, because the word "hunt" implies the possibility of failure. Chuck Norris goes KILLING.
