Default Roddick: "People want to get rid of me"

Andy makes an excellent point it really ticks me off that people act like he is a scrub .


Heres the official article.

To be honest out of all the old guys on tour I think I'll actually miss Roddick the most, so personally I don't want to get rid of him.

I'm wondering the same thing. Was he referring to Bogomolov by any chance?

Default Re: Roddick: "People want to get rid of me"

But the guy who is two years younger probably isn't a former #1 who's ranking has been steadily dropping for a while. Up and coming is an expression that would make no sense applied to Roddick currently.

I've been trying to get rid of him since he was number 1 in the world almost a decade ago.

Default Re: Roddick: "People want to get rid of me"

i don't think anyone WANTS to get rid of Roddick but obviously it's no fun as a fan seeing him play nowadays when their is little faith that he can go far in tournaments.

love the guy and would like him do well at Wimbledon some more but his career is almost over and it's not that anyone wants to get rid of him as much as life is going to rid him from the sport naturally; can't help or change the fact that the body weakens and players lose speed as they age

People WANT to get rid of him? Oh really Andy? Talking just from my point of view i just find his game boring. I don't want to ged rid of him but i just don't like him and i can't see him causing any damage on the top players anymore

Roddick must be frequenting MTF. I knew it.

Default Re: Roddick: "People want to get rid of me"

He's just a complete hack now, simple as that. I've always found his press conferences entertaining, but his game is disgusting and his serve has lost potency. If he plays for another 2 years it'll just be pathetic.

playing the victim card andy, i see...

maybe if you weren't such an asshole on the court people would want you to stay around. Nowadays, he's not even in tournaments long enough for a good old fashioned outburst.

Default Re: Roddick: "People want to get rid of me"

I still remember the classic Duck article from Mac's '03 Wimbledon magazine which had the headline "Andy Roddick has been around so long, some may see him as a spent force... yet he is only 20 years old"

most absurd piece of writing ever
