sunday survey: austin on andy’s mind

by

If everything is bigger in Texas, this may as well be one of the biggest moments of Andy Roddick‘s life. The announcement a couple weeks ago that his adopted hometown of Austin, Texas, will host the Davis Cup quarterfinal between the U.S. and Spain on July 8-10 this summer potentially pits Roddick against Rafael Nadal in a showdown that could be one of the highlights of the American’s career.

Roddick and others were buzzing this past week when the USTA pre-sale tickets went on sale (80 percent of the entire venue) for the event at the Erwin Center on the campus of the University of Texas and sold out with two hours – America seems to be pretty pumped, too.

General tickets went on sale yesterday, with prices ranging from $90 to $500 for weekend tickets. Last time these two squads met on American soil it was the U.S. who prevailed – but the Spaniards were without Rafa. So what about this time? Will Roddick pull out an epic win? How important do you think this tie is? Tell us in the comment section!

    Not sure what kind of shape Roddick will be in after Wimbledon…

    Good point, Paula! His Davis Cup performance will probably hinge big time on how he performs at SW19. Though – I think no matter the outcome in London (good or bad), he’ll be motivated to either prove himself once again or continue a high.
