Hi, I'm Andy Roddick, Check This Out

Here's a video of a great between-the-legs shot Andy pulled off in his exo match with Josselin Ouanna yesterday. Unfortunately he lost in two tiebreaks but he did beat Mikhail Youzhny today 6-3 6-2. After pulling out of Madrid with a stomach bug, this small exo is the only way Andy can get in some match play before Roland Garros begins Sunday.

The draw for Roland Garros is out, and this would be a great draw if it were Wimbledon. But it's french clay and unless a miracle occurs I don't see how Andy will get past David Ferrer in the fourth round. If he can escape from Paris injury-free I will be happy. At this point in Andy's career it's all about winning Wimbledon.

Peter Bodo would rather not have to watch Roddick play Jarkko Nieminen in the first round:
No. 6 Andy Roddick versus Jarkko Nieminen: Roddick has played exactly zero matches on clay this year, having pulled out of Madrid with a stomach bug. I like Andy Roddick; it pains me to see Roddick lose early in tournaments, and Nieminen is a crafty, somewhat eccentric stylist with a deep bag of tricks. This is a perilous one, and it's way too early in the tournament to bite my fingernails down to the quick.
