Andy Roddick Leaves Wimbledon, Uncertain of a Return

As the three time runner up at Wimbledon Andy Roddick walked off the court after being beaten by Spaniard David Ferrer in the third round at the All England Club, he blew a few kisses and waved at the crowd in such a manner that rumors have already begun to surface that the 29 year old former US Open champion might not be making a return to the famous courts of London anytime again.

With his 12th attempt at winning the most famous Grand Slam event of the tennis calendar up in smoke once again, Roddick was, however, adamant that he had not come to any decisions regarding his future in the game.

Speaking at a press conference after his loss, Roddick stated that on a personal level, he played a far better game in the defeat to the seventh seeded Ferrer than he had done in a long time and added that he was looking forward to returning to the All England Club in a month’s time to take part in the summer Olympic Games.

Andy Roddick added that he played according to his strengths, and the turning point of the match came when his forehand clipped the net at set point and after that, he couldn’t get back into the match. He went on to add that he was excited to return for the Olympic Games and if he can maintain the same momentum, he can make the lives of others on court very uncomfortable indeed. In spite fo the defeat he is still only available at very short US Open odds.

He also made it clear that he still enjoys playing tennis, but admitted that playing at the same top level for a consistently long period of time is a tough thing to do for any player and he is no different, though the tennis betting offers may make it seem like he is. Andy Roddick also added that he is proud of what he has achieved in his career so far.
