Entries in Andy Roddick (54)
From a man who owns Superbowl ring to one that earned a green jacket from Augusta National - celebrities, Olympians, and fellow tennis players flooded Twitter to wish Andy Roddick well after he retired from tennis today at the US Open. Here are some of their tweets:
Congrats Andy Roddick on a great career RT @sportscenter: Andy Roddick salutes the crowd after playing the last match of his tennis career.— Drew Brees (@drewbrees) September 5, 2012
On his 30th birthday (and a full moon) Andy Roddick held a press conference to announce his retirement from the game of tennis. Above his the press conference. He will be missed.
Breaking! Andy Roddick still has hair!! Last time I checked, his hair sitch looked like this. Oh what a little gel and some photoshop can do....... I jest, I jest.
This month, the dashing (hair or no hair) American tennis star is on the cover of Jezebel's Digital Magazine and in typical A-Rod style, he "serves up some sass."
In the interview for the mag, Roddick talks about what it was like seeing his wife Brooklyn Decker padded up for the movie "What To Expect When You're Expecting", how pissing people off comes naturally to him like "breathing air or drinking water", how boos are really "backhanded compliments", and who is the real A-Rod (him vs. Alex Rodriguez). It's a pretty awesome interview. Click here to check it out!
There were smiles all around as British royalty collided with American tennis royalty at the All England Club. A capless Andy Roddick greeted Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall today while the Duchess took in a little tennis with her hubby Prince Charles. They sat in the royal box (of course) to watch the 2nd round match between Roger Federer and Fabio Fognini. After the match, Fed gave the most graceful bow (of course) to the royal couple.
I'm not sure what the rules are pertaining to how to greet a Duchess, but by the smile on Camilla's face, it seems like Andy could do no wrong. He was definitely working his All-American charm.

SAP Ambassador Andy Roddick has had his fair share of memorable Wimbledon moments in his career. In this video he reflects on Wimbledon traditions, his 3 finals - that he's "lost to some guy named Federer" - and how he would like to catch "lightening in a bottle." Do you think Andy will reach his ultimate dream before he retires? Enjoy!
Thank you to SAP Sponsors for sharing this video!
Sometimes, being a manic fan can the most rewarding affliction in the world. Waving the Swiss flag in 2006, cheering on Novak Djokovic in 2011 in mispronounced Serbian, raising a knee and fist in time with Nadal in 2010; all good. At some point, though, things take a turn for the worse. Supporting Federer now without losing your dignity? It’d be easier to show more grace running naked up the street. Vamosing on Nadal can’t be easy either, and yelling for Murray? Well, who said that’s ever been anything but bad news? But heartbreak won’t stop a true fan. These are the people that admit they’re a little obsessive, that take the good times with the bad, and don’t stop being crazy for their player just because times are tough. Chances are, we all have a little mad fan in us.
But we’re not just about poking fun at others. So for our final three posts, we the writers at On The Go Tennis, will open up about our own fandom.
