Roddick aims to reignite disappointing season

Andy Roddick is hoping to reignite 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 on four occasions.

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.

However, the start of the warm-up event for Wimbledon was

delayed by bad weather on Monday.

Roddick also compete in doubles with another four-time former

champion, Lleyton Hewitt.
