    Can't wait for the US Open to begin. I am wishing VERY HARD that Safin takes it all. I know that it is improbable, but I just want his fire to translate into a trophy instead of just a broken racket. It would be a perfect way for him to end his professional tennis career


Hahaha. What are the odds of that happening? Pretty low.

I want Roddick to win, mostly because I'm a patriot!

But seriously, I want Roddick to win because it will create interest in the sport in the US. The US hasn't had a dominate male figure in tennis for quite some time, and the US only cares about a sport if they win in it. Soccer/football is a great example of this, the US would only care if we actually won. We only back winners.

So Roddick wins, and alot of interest is generated in the player and the sport. We start talking about if this is finally his time, if he has matured as a player. With a few more wins, we can start talking about how he should be ranked higher. If he can be placed in that top group.

And he came so close in Wimbledon. I have expected him to pull out and win it. Darn. Here is hoping he goes all the way.
