    Roddick hit a between the legs shot against Tipsarivich today, but I don't know at what point in the match and I watched the whole thing and didnt see it. Does anyone know when or have a video if possible of it?

    I think he needs a shot between the legs if he is going to win Wimbledon. Looked very tentative at times today.

    what? one trick pony rod?

    The only reason why a rod is any use on grass is because of his 5000 mph bullet serves.


    it is hard to believe the other dude ranked 101st? he put up a good fight (he beat greg in the Davis cup!).

    Once roddick gets a good run at a slam, r finally wins a tourney he's gonna get the confidence and the "One trick poney" will be improve....

    That was such a close match in the 3rd set....
    so many times his serve pulled him out of trouble....
    and he was down 5-4 in the tiebreaker...
    then a easy run in the 4th set, which i didnt see....
    maybe this is his wakeup call?
    come on Andy....

    That might be worth a shot, but I'm not so sure it wouldn't hurt his mobility.... I don't think you can really play tennis in the fetal position

    Between the legs shot? Andy needs a shot in the brain. He was inspiring in 2004. Now he looks like he's gone through what should be 20 years on tour in 2.

    Meh... The shot was impressive... But was stopped by Tipsarevic's fine block volley at the net... Heh heh heh... What a backfire...

    Yeah I saw it. It was nice. To me, it was kind of a 'show-off'. It looked like he had plenty of time to turn around and do a passing shot, but he went for the flashy move... and lost the point. Ah, well, at least, he looked like he was having fun, at the moment.

    I think it was at Queen's Club 2005, but don't recall which match.

    How long was he out or did he just try to play it off as a joke?

    i think the fellow was looking for a picture/video of the shot of roddick hitting the ball between the legs .. not picture of him squeezing himself between the legs .. ..

    Yes, your right, Show off tennis like between the legs shots and many other of Roddicks can be quite entertaining. I am a big fan of Roddick, but I still dont find it bery entertaning to see him grab his balls.
