Roddick boycotts Dubai b/c of Peer

Sorry if this has been posted already, but it's news to me...

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

Andy Roddick, who won at Memphis on Sunday, withdrew to protest the Emirates’ decision not to grant Israeli player Shahar Peer a visa to compete in last week’s women’s event. Israeli Andy Ram was granted a visa and is scheduled to play doubles this week.

Andy is such a stand up guy. I dislike Peer but this is what the williams sisters should have done but they are so into themselves that they forget about how they struggled with discrimination when they first came on the tour.

Roddick withdrew but won a tournament of equivalent points to make up for it, so it's good that he didn't lose anything by withdrawing.

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

How much does ATP fine Roddick?

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
