Why every time roddick lose, there is an excuse?

I am sorry, I know he is ill and evrything, but why everytime he lose an important, he is 'visibly ill', 'vomiting', 'appeared injured' or 'appeared in pain'



I am sorry if I offend anyone, but it is very coincidental that every tiem he lose an important match, he is ill or injured, maybe he should condition his body better

An article about his lost in final today

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- Davide Sanguinetti won the second tournament title of his nine-year career and his second of the year Sunday, beating an ill Andy Roddick 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 in the final of the International Tennis Championships.

On a warm, sunny afternoon, Roddick appeared to vomit at least twice, including once at his chair shortly after Sanguinetti closed out the victory with an ace. Roddick was playing with a chest infection and fever, coach Tarik Benhabiles said.

The defeat was the top-seeded Roddick's first in five career finals.

The No. 5-seeded Sanguinetti beat another American, Jan-Michael Gambill, in the semifinals. The 29-year-old Italian won his first ATP Tour title just last month in Milan.

Roddick looked lethargic for much of the match, bending over after long points and often hanging his head.

``C'mon, Andy, pick it up a notch!'' a fan shouted midway through the second set. Roddick responded by raising his thumb and briefly showed signs of life, breaking Sanguinetti for the only time in the final game of the set to even the match.

But Roddick double-faulted on break point to lose his serve for just the second time and fall behind 3-2 in the final set. During a changeover with Sanguinetti ahead 4-3, Roddick became visibly ill and briefly left the court with a towel over his mouth.

Sanguinetti held serve for a 5-3 lead and held again for the victory and a $51,500 first prize. Roddick won $30,300.

Don't worry about offending people. It's the truth. He's a drama queen and needs an excuse every time he loses. Or, if he just wants pity from the crowd.

At least you're sorry that you are offending people, I would be among those people... most Andy hatters aren't as polite!!

Well I'm not a doctor but I'm pretty sure that the flu and viruses can affect anybody, even the most conditioned athletes. And it would be dumb to say that a top 15 player isn't in good condition... look at Lleyton at the Aussie Open... anything can happen!

In case you might think my most haters aren't as polite comment was directed at you Scotso, it wasn't... although it very well could be... when I started writing my message, yours wasn't up yet!

The only reason I wrote this is because I saw the headline in a website shouting 'Super fit Roddick through to semis" implying that he won two match in a trod on a day. Don't you think it is ironic that media is behind him so much, and the fact that yes it is coincidental that Andy is injured but it happen everytime he lost a big match an injury or illness or a bad line call. it is way too conincidental

I seriously doubt Andy made himself vomit

Lets face it he is a bit of a drama queen.

I think he is a bit overrated anyway. Ok he has an amazing serve but there is so much effort in every shot I wonder if he can hold up. I have never thought much of his backhand either. He is fantastic for the game however, but still overrated so far...

Well it is possible that he was feeling fine one day and then sick the next day... I know it has happened to people before And he, or the media for that matter, doesn't blame ALL his losses in big matches on injury, illness or a bad line call. You are obviously not an Andy follower because all you seem to know (or remember) about him is this tournie, the Aussie (or maybe French) Open for the injury and the line call at the U.S Open... if you did follow Andy week in and week out like me you would know that most losses, such as last week to Andre in the semis, were not blamed on anything except the fact that Andre simply played better... i'm not saying you should follow Andy I'm just saying that until you do don't start saying EVERYTIME he loses he says this and he ALWAYS does this or that... And as far as being over-rated, ok maybe he is but that's not a reason not to like him... hate the media for that... all Andy does is play tennis!

Oh I don't hate him Angel, I just think he is overrated and yes, this is the fault of the media. and Andy probably puts that little bit of extra pressure on himself because he thinks he something extra special. He is, but I think he is too immature as yet to win the big ones.
