(December 2, 2012) No. 11 Nicolas Almagro stopped the recently retired Andy Roddick 6-4, 7-5 on Sunday at the Miami Tennis Cup exhibition event held at Crandon Park, the home of the Sony Open. The win marked the first time Almagro had never take a set off of Roddick. While Roddick was on the pro tour he was 2-0 versus the Spaniard going 4-0 in sets. Almagro said it was a good match after the win. “I’m really happy with my tennis today,” Almagro said.  “I think I can do better, but it’s the end of the season, and I’m a little bit tired.” In between the hard-hitting rallies, the players mixed in some “hit and giggle” tennis which entertained the fans. “I enjoy playing tennis still, and it was never about me not enjoying tennis,” Roddick said after the match. “It was about me not being able to commit to being a professional tennis player.” So what’s next for the 30-year-old American? No training certainly for Roddick  but more golf. He’s back to full husband duties following his wife model-actress Brooklyn Decker around. “The tables have turned.”   © MiamiTennisNews.com
