Andy Roddick on Good Day Atlanta

It's really a mystery why American men cant play for ****e. My guess is a lot of the athletic talent is going to the Big 4 sports and soccer

Secondly , they need to start sending these kids abroad to Europe for train. Even Murray and Safin left their home countries to train in Spain and learn stamina, consistency and point construction by playing on clay and using that foundation to boost their HC games.

with so many countries involved my guess is they have a better shot at making a living playing baseball, basketball, etc.. than tennis these days

The usta won that slam by making juan carlos play 4 straight days. Roddick was first on court every round.

Roddick is the most overrated pro of all time, look at his record vs the top10
Yes, let's look at one random stat from his career to make an overall decision about him.

No one's saying he had Big 4 consistency. And most agreed he was a borderline HoF candidate, at best. We know who he is.

Always good to hear him talk. I don't think I've ever been bored listening to any of his interviews, even now almost 7 years into his retirement.
It was great to have him as a guest for The Tennis Podcast last week. The host kept pushing to get him back into tennis because he's far too entertaining and insightful to only hear from him once or twice a year.

Best moment in Roddick's tennis life:

Geez, this match. Young Rafa might have been able to take it to Fed even back then, but he had zero chance on this day, not against the serve and forehand he was faced with and certainly not on the older USO courts. Roddick's power was on full display from the word go - I remember in his opening service game he blasted a 152 MPH ace that Rafa half poked at, half dodged. He let off the gas a little in the third (and to his credit, Nadal pounced like the fierce competitor he was and still is) but then Roddick put the clamps right back on and reasserted himself in what seemed like the blink of an eye.
