Andy Roddick won his second out of his last three tournaments over the weekend in Atlanta. Granted it wasn't something on the caliber of Miami or any other Masters 1000 or a Slam, but a win's a win. And knocking off someone like John Isner along the way is nice, too.
Now, it's off to London for that little event called the Summer Olympics. Serious competition abounds on the grass courts of Wimbledon, but crazy enough, I think Roddick can consider himself among the top-flight players. I say crazy because who pegged A-Rod for a contender at the beginning of 2012?
I don't know about a medal but I am sure he will be doing some damage on the grass courts. One thing's for sure, his preparation couldn't have gone better.
An old friend of mine and I used to talk tennis for hours, whether it was our own games or what was happening in the pros. I've started Tennis Talk, Anyone? to, well, talk tennis with an even broader crowd! My name is Van Sias and I've been playing for 20 years now, and not only am I player, I'm a huge fan of the game as well: pro, amateur, you name it. I'll post links to news items related to the sport, and offer my own personal opinion, predictions and hopefully get some of yours as well.
