Andy Roddick is underachieving? You cannot be serious!
Andy Roddick got kicked out of the US open with a 3rd round loss to the immortal John Isner. After a short rebirth at Wimbledon, taking Fed to 5 sets and beyond before finally going down in defeat. People had large expectations going into the US Open, the only major that Roddick has won back in 2003. Well dude did what he always does. Act like a baby, turn his cap backwards crooked, and bail out of a grand slam in the early rounds.
His fellow countrymen James Blake and Sam Querrey also got knocked out today(Blake is down 2 sets to none so I’ll go out on a limb and say he’s out). It would be fine for Roddick and all Americans to suck at tennis, expect for the huge press that follows them and artificially hypes them as the next great thing. Have anyone accomplished less for the notoriety they have received than Roddick. Dude is like 1-19 against Federer all-time. Not exactly the next Sampras, Aggasi, or McEnroe. Marat Safin has 2 grand slams; as does Jevgeni Kafelnikov. Russians are better at tennis despite playing drunk half the time.
How about we all get off the Andy Roddick bandwagon and wait until Lebron picks up a tennis racquet.
