Re: Entry List/Fact Sheet (updated 10/12/07)

Does anyone know why Roddick is out? I checked the ATP website a few days ago and it said Madrid was his next tournament.
he conveniently has 2 charity events scheduled this weekend...he also played two exhibition matches this week so I'm sure the foot isn't too much of a problem...he's just very unfocused

Roddick appeared just fine on Tuesday night when I saw him in Baltimore. :shrug:
That's what I ment by "Offical reason". I read on his website about a gala for his charity foundation that will take place today in his hometown. I assume he didn't start planing this two days ago so did he ever plan to play in Madrid? Anyway... he has a right for a private life and if he doesn't want to play Madrid that is ok. And do we know how serious this injury is? Maybe the ankle is ok for a charity match but not ok for daily practice or a match against Federer. :confused:

The Americans know more than me on this one, but I think his priority for the rest of the year is Davis Cup, with all other commitments being secondary. If he does have a niggling injury, he is probably not wanting to risk it...and it isn't as if his Shanghai place will be in jeopardy at the end of next week.

Yeah, he was wearing ankle braces on both ankles, but moved just fine to me. It might be something minor. I think he had these charity things already scheduled, but it's his life, he can do that if he wants to.
