This image is somewhat misleading. Being one of the humblest men ever to grace center court at the world-renowned Wimbledon tournament, Andy Roddick was so genuinely gracious in a gut-wrenching, soul-sapping defeat.
However, he was distraught, having fought through an epic, deciding fifth set—consisting of 30 nerve-wrecking games, only to lose to the most unforgiving and brutal of opponents.
As Rodger Federer accepted his unprecedented 15th Grand Slam title, he couldn't help but kick his exhausted, down-trodden opponent while he was down.
As if I needed more inspiration to register my disgust in an article that documents the names of the five most arrogant athletes. They pollute our television screens and corrupt our sporting venues with unmitigated conceit.
Roddick will most definitely not be named among the top five. He is by no means arrogant. The picture is merely a tribute to the tragic end of his Wimbledon campaign.
So...here they are.
