Congratulations to Andy Roddick on winning the 2003 U.S. Open and his frist grand slam title!
He truly deserves to be the 2003 U.S. Open champion.
Andy had a very tough draw and he had to endure the seemingly endless rain delays and match postponements and that had to be very frustrating.
And he played under great control in the final. I was pleasantly surprised how well he played.
Andy Roddick has been put under an immense amount of pressure by the American media to be the next great American men's tennis player. But he's handled himself with class and dignity. He's even learned to control his emotions. And he's starting to fulfill the American media's great expectations. But he doesn't need to be the next great American men's tennis player. He just needs to be the best tennis player he can become. And the rest will fall into place.
Well done Andy!
