    Just saw Martina Navaratilova and Mary Carillo just said "Roddick looks like this is the last Wimbledon" as though he is saying goodbye to wimbledon for the last time. Is Roddick really retiring ?

    It is pretty much a consensus he will retire at the end of this year, or perhaps more likely right after the U.S Open.

    they also think poly strings are more powerful than natural gut.

    Don't listen to these two guys. They mostly have no clue what they are talking about.

    That's right. Anyone of us here can talk like them but no ones will listen to us and get paid like them.

    You've misunderstood. She said "the last Wimbledon" not HIS last Wimbledon.

    For the intellectually challenged that implies that there will be no more Wimpleduns ever again.

    It's tough for him to stay in shape and win with his mediocre skills. so may not return back. he himself isn't sure as he told in presser.

    I enjoyed his tennis and look forward to hopefully his commentating in the future either way.
