I used to be a big Roddick fan, but his antics have worn me out.  That crap over the foot fault call in the Isner match was just ridiculous.  And HOW DID HE NOT RECEIVE EVEN A WARNING from the chair for throwing his racket??  It is amazing to me how afraid some officials are of these guys.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Good to see you around Jamesdster!

I agree with you on Roddick.  But he's an American and when he plays in America...seems like he can get away with a lot of stuff!

That was pure B.S.!
I've always thought that there's plenty to like about Andy (not Murray), but as he ages it seems to me there's plenty to dislike as well.
....and it appears to be getting worse. :(
CONK da ball!!!
