Roddick aims to bounce back in disappointing year
Andy Roddick is hoping to bounce back from a disappointing
season at the Queen’s Club grass court tournament.
The 29-year-old American has always been happy to put the clay
court season behind him and turn his attention to grass, a surface
he has excelled on by reaching three Wimbledon finals and winning
the title at Queen’s four times.
The seventh-seeded Roddick says: ”When I get on a grass court
it just feels natural to me. I don’t feel I’m fighting myself like
I do on clay.”
After a first-round bye, Roddick faces Edouard Roger-Vasselin of
France or Kazak qualifier Evgeny Korolev. The start of the warmup
event for Wimbledon, however, was delayed by bad weather
Roddick also competes in doubles with another four-time former
champion, Lleyton Hewitt.
