French Open 2011: Andy Roddick Withdraws, What Does This Do to His Legacy?
French Open 2011 sees the downward spiral of Roddick’s legacy
Andy Roddick will not win the French Open this year.
According to Forbes.com, the former U.S Open winner and Wimbledon finalist had to withdraw from the French Open due to a right shoulder injury.
The injury had previously forced Roddick out of the Italian Open. The likelihood is he’ll rest and gear up for Wimbledon this summer.
The sad news for Roddick is this is just another missed opportunity to win a Grand Slam title. While it was a longer shot that Roddick, who has just one grand slam title to his credit, was going to win, it’s always just another damning mark on his resume.
Roddick may best be known as the greatest player to be crippled by Roger Federer’s career. At the time that Roddick was reaching his prime, Federer was embarking on one of the greatest runs in the history of tennis. His dominance led him to 15 grand slam titles(the record) and casting a shadow so large that Roddick would never be able to escape it.
At this point Roddick, the emotional and occasionally diva like tennis star, can only hope that he can manage just one more grand slam to lend more credibility to his career.
That’s the only thing he can shoot for.
