That's how it should be and I like it to be that way with any player who retires, specially the top ones.

Talk about hypocrisy. Spewing BS about not wanting to pollute the thread and then going and doing exactly that. Typical Noletard.

Default Andy Roddick, Retirement, and Age 30 Something

I'm not sure how often players announce their retirement in a press media, but I would be curious about reasons on why Andy Roddick wants to call it quit after this year's (2012) US Open. After the 2009's Wimbledon final, which he was defeated again by Roger Federer, there has not been notable great performance (at the grand slam level). An old age could be a factor like everyone else and Andy also has to cope with some injuries.

While many players in their 30s would experience decline in performance, there are players older than him that are still playing:
- Tommy Haas: He has the determination that make him seeded in this year's US Open. Too bad he lost in the first round, but I believe he will be back in the Top 20 soon. He would be fine for at least few more years.
- Lleyton Hewitt: His toe has been acting up at a certain time (not exactly know when). With a family, he is still playing for who knows how long. He may retire at any moment.
- Radek Stepanek: This guy is up and down. Most of the time he would be lucky if he make it to Third Round in singles. He does better in doubles. Maybe he should just focus on playing doubles after all.
- Juan Carlos Ferrero: He doesn't show up in this year's US Open. Is he retiring or does he have any injury? He has been up and down.
- Tommy Robredo: He is back at this year's US Open. He lost early in the 2nd round, but this could be considered a short term accomplishment. How much further will he go into remains to be seen.

Right now there are two players in their 30s in the Top 10, which are Roger Federer and David Ferrer (both of them are older than Andy Roddick). I believe there will be more and more 30 something in TOP 10 in the future. Andy could be back in the 10 in the near future if he does not call it quit.

I think it has to do with drive and determination. Andy seems to be losing interest and motivation in the game to keep it going. It could have been due to the physical ailment or knee injury at the beginning of this year. Medical advice could have advice against playing further, who knows.

So, I know that media like ESPN, Tennis Channel and others have mentioned what Andy would like to do post US Open. What do you think is the real reason(s) behind Andy Roddick's retirement?

garson, his shoulder has finally fallen apart on him and would most likely need surgery. He was looking at a 9 month to a year of rehab and I guess he doesn't want to go through with that. He said this stuff in his presser.

It's fairly simple. The players you site either are no longer in contention for the major titles or never have been. It's not only about age. If you cant meet the expectations you set for yourself, of course your motivation dives. Andy i suspect realizes he's just no longer in serious contention for the major titles, so doesn't care to go down that road. Just time to move onto other things. He's got plenty of money so just not much incentive left to keep playing to ultimately loose the titles he really wants.

I don't really follow press conference that much. I guess this explains and it is understandable.
