FLUSHING MEADOWS, NY – The 20th seed Andy Roddick postponed his retirement by advancing to the fourth round of the US Open with a 7-5, 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4 win over Italy’s Fabio Fognini on Sunday.
“I am trying to keep all of my emotions together. All the support I have received over the past few days has been truly humbling,” said Roddick.
“It was a pretty physical match. You know, we had some ‑‑ we were moving it around a little bit. But, no, I mean, I don’t go in expecting anything. You go in, you just try to play your game, and sometimes it goes like the other night and sometimes, you know, you kind of ‑‑ got away from me a little bit and I had to get it back in the fourth set. That’s just the way it goes sometimes. It was pretty physical out there. I have the rest of tonight, all day tomorrow, and I have a feeling they might give me some time on Tuesday, as well.”

Bernard Tomic didn’t want to be the bad guy who ended Andy Roddick’s career, so he dutifully got wiped in the second round of the US Open by the American 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 on Friday.
Tomic hardly put up a fight in the final set, winning just five points and lasting only 22 minutes. His poor showing prompted commentator John McEnroe to accuse him of tanking.

As Andy Roddick's career morphed from a promising, ace-filled beginning into a frustrating, Roger Federer-filled end, the American tennis star worked hard to adjust his game to accomplish what he could.

After beating Italy's Fabio Fognini 7-5, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 in a physically and emotionally exhausting battle that lasted exactly three hours in front of a vast, adoring crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium, Roddick has to prepare himself for another possible farewell.
It could come on Tuesday evening -- presuming...
The U.S. Open has been going well so far this year, with none of the rainouts or other squawking that plagued previous years rearing its head at Flushing Meadows. The biggest news has perhaps been American star Andy Roddick announcing that this fortnight will be his final time on the tennis courts, followed closely by former champ Maria Sharapova confirming that her ring finger is...

Tennis star Andy Roddick Announced that he will retire after the US Open. That’s odd, I thought he retired right after the 2003 US Open because he hasn’t done diddly squat since then. Too soon? No because I would rather be Roddick and go home with that trophy of a wife he has in Brooklyn Decker than some metal server dish.
Fighting in the upper...

Andy Roddick shocked many in the tennis community this week when he announced his impending retirement at the 2012 US Open. (He even surprised some who don’t follow tennis so closely, as my grandma called to tell me, with much concern, that she heard the “cute American tennis player is retiring.”)
Would you rather be Andy Roddick or Roger Federer? I was heavily influenced by the internet on Friday which lead me to write this blog. First, I saw the actual post on Barstool New York. Then I read this article about how Roger Federer single-handedly prevented Roddick from becoming an elite tennis player….
Look I know we’re often bullsh$itting when we write blogs on a day-to...

Every match that Andy Roddick plays at the 2012 US Open could be his last, since announcing his upcoming retirement at the end of this year’s tournament.
Good news for us because that means we will see Roddick’s smoking hot wife and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker sitting in the stands rooting for her man at almost every match.
This is Decker looking very...
