People say, “You retired too young.” And I counter that by saying “I got a head start on the rest of my life.”
Andy Roddick, who along with four-time slam winner Kim Clijsters and four-time Paralympic tennis wheelchair medallist Monique Kalkman-van den Bosch, will be inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame. During his highly-consistent career Roddick was an ATP World Number One, won the Davis Cup, was in the top 5 for 187 weeks and memorably won the US Open. Since his retirement the 34-year old Texan native has concentrated on his family, broadcasting career, commercial real estate companies and the Andy Roddick Foundation.
Great guys of tennis, these Andy s… 🙂
It was really fun watching the Australian Open. I was happy for Roger though I do hope Andy Murray wins it one day.
Andy is my Number One, but Roger is not too far behind… So classy players these 2!
I’m not sure Roger’s feet ever touch the ground when he plays. He seems to float ha. Andy has done so much for British tennis.
You are my go to sports guy. Terrific quote
Thank you kindly. I really do love tennis.
I never would have known
Haha, I like what he says. It’s witty but very true.
It’s always up to the athlete to decide, but I do prefer it when a player goes out nearer the top rather than slogging it at the lower levels and losing to players who he would have beaten in his prime. Especially in tennis.
I think it’s best to go out on a high and be remembered like that.
