My idol!

Andy Roddick is my idol. I look up to him in everything I do. He never gives up, even when the going's tough and he never frets over points and puts a smile on his face.

Out of anyone in the "media" world, he's the only one I can look up to. Not to name names, but anyone in the music business is not really a role-model, actors can act their way through interviews so you don't really know if they're being sincere sometimes, but Andy, he's always sincere!

So yeah. All that to say he's my idol, and one day (maybe this summer!) I hope to meet him. It'd be so fantastic to be in his presence; to be face to face with my role-model idol!

Re: My idol!

Yes, Andre is my idol-of-idol! XD Hehe! That's funny.

I just wish he'd get back on the right track though... his last two loses (in the Pacific Life and the Australian) made me severely depressed. I like Lleyton, but he's kinda... well, mean and I don't think he deserves to win with the attitude he has half the time.

Umm, yeah. I live near where the TMS Canada is going to take place. If I'm lucky, I'll go twice. For sure once. And I'll be hunting the practice courts for Andy. >>

Re: My idol!

Okay, maybe he did give up at the Australian Open. >>

I don't think he gave up at the Pacific Life Open though. o_o;
And I didn't see TMC, whatever that stands for... ^_^;
