2010 has been a good season for Andy Roddick. Scratch that, a great season. Writes CNN-SI.com‘s Jon Wertheim:
[Roddick] is someone who has spent almost an entire decade residing in the top 10. He is a limited player who has done everything in his power to improve. He is a fighter. He is a professional who takes his career seriously and ambitiously. He is a mensch — the most recent evidence being his participation in the Champions for Chile fundraiser on the eve of the Key Biscayne final. He is also a 27-year-old playing perhaps the best ball of his career. After reaching the Indian Wells final, he went one better in Key Biscayne, taking the title and beating both Nadal and the surgingTomas Berdych along the way. Roddick may or may not ever win that elusive second Major. But it’s worth remembering that players with a lot more native talent have achieved a lot less.
Well said, if I say so myself. So here’s our question this week:
Will Roddick win ‘that elusive second Major’? Does he have it in him? Or will he, as Wertheim writes, be remembered as the guy who worked hard and did the best that he could have? And if he does have a shot at that second Major, where will it be? When will it be?! Let us know in the comments section.
