Ok so those are the two newspaper articles that mention Andy. The first one is about how the journalists have awarded the "Gentleman" award to Federer (Such a surprise). But they conclude with : Federer's attitude makes up for a jerk ala Andy Roddick. Sorry if that picture's a little blurry.
The second one's where his little antics are mentioned. The spitting, the racquet in the wall and the leaving the autograph session.
As for the Speak white comments, "this is North America", etc. they've all been heard on the radio by a friend of mine who's pretty reliable. I will ask him if that's what he really heard.
I know the articles are in French, someone probably understands it here, it's pretty late and I don't feel like translating. Maybe tomorrow.
The second article's title says it all. "Roddick: Bon débarras"
means "Roddick : Good riddance"
. Damn! Pretty harsh.
Anyhow, the second article pretty much says what you mentioned earlier : the part about blowing off the media, leaving an autograph session for kids early since he couldn't understand what they were saying
, spitting on a water bottle (of a kid - I guess they mean ballboys?
) when he missed a ball and the part of the racket (it getting stuck in a wall
) after Djokovic's match is also mentionned. Yikes.
Roddick didn't make a good impression. That's for sure.
I'm going to read first article in a minute.
Thanks for the links though.
edit : in the first article "Mettons que cela compense, très heureusement, pour un con à la Andy Roddick"
