hello
I just want some info.
Roddick withdrew half-way through from his match, with Blake.
Could any-one please give me specifics about what was or is wrong with Andy Roddick.
He was having a good season and i thought he would be one of the favorites at Wimbledon.

He rolled his ankle...

Roddick said the right-foot injury did not seem serious and he hoped to be ready when Wimbledon begins on June 22.

“I’m going to do everything I can to play at Wimbledon,” Roddick said. “We’re scheduled to get it looked at again tomorrow and do some scans on it and see where we’re at, but initial tests showed the stability was OK. … I’m not walking in here saying I’m going to be out six weeks or anything like that. We’re looking at days, not weeks.”

Roddick was injured in the third game after running back on a lob from Blake. After failing to hit the ball between his legs, Roddick stumbled on the edge between the grass court and surrounding concrete.

His ankle and foot were taped after Blake had held serve for 4-3, but Roddick retired after the next game.


“I was just going back after I hit the shot, and there’s a difference in height between where the grass court ends and where the concrete goes, and I just unfortunately stepped at a bad angle,” he said. “It kind of just twisted a little bit. Running straight ahead I was all right—side to side was suspect

I hate it, when there is a difference in height between. When I had the first luxation of my knee disc it happened because of a step where I snagged. :mad:

He'll know more tomorrow when he gets out of bed. Ankles are tricky business.
