you know, i'm going to get a lot of flack for bringing this up again, but i have to bring it up. roddick lost today (no major surprise) but he actually was very, very sick. he was puking on the sidelines in front of the spectators, had a 2 set lead, and squandered a match point and STILL played 3 more sets. below is an excerpt from sports.yahoo.com/ten, and i just wanna give him props for finishing the match. this was part of the davis cup, justine's was a grand slam final. give me bad rep or whatever you want, but this just proves that justine has no sportsmanship whatsoever, and that i am so dissappointed with her.
"Roddick vomited several times on the sidelines during changeovers and took a timeout because his right hand cramped up during the third-set tiebreaker. Dehydrated, he spent a long time after the match getting fluids through an IV.
Roddick, who said he definitely would be available to play on Sunday, wasn't sure what caused him to feel nauseous. He said he hadn't eaten anything unusual.
"That was the worst I've felt after a match," he said. "I've cramped before, but I still felt like I had energy. This time, I felt drained."
Pavel realized Roddick was in trouble.
"I saw that his body was not fit any more," Pavel said. "Sometimes, when somebody's injured, he's going to hit as hard as he can and try to shorten the points. I sensed it in the fourth set.
"My strategy was to make him run a lot." Roddick was up 7-6 in the third-set tiebreaker, with two serves coming up. But he lost both and Pavel went on to win when Roddick netted one forehand and hit another long for the final point of the set. "
