Regardless of who you were rooting for today, you had to feel a bit bad for Andy Roddick following his 16-14 in-the-fifth loss to Roger Federer, the man who has now beat A-Rod on 19 of 21 tries.
In his post-match interview with Sue Barker, Roddick was beyond brief, answering his questions quickly and striding back to his place at the net, obviously overcome with defeat and grief in what was the longest Wimbledon finals match ever.
Federer (who can blame him?), was beaming in his interview. Though he tried to console Andy with a “I’ve been there too, buddy,” it didn’t quite seem to work. Will Andy ever win Wimbledon? Another slam? We sure hope so…
