Wimbledon: Gentlemen’s Singles Final

Dear Andy Roddick,

I’ve never been a huge fan of your game: mostly because of its dependence on your HUGE first serve and lack of variety. Plus you remind me of Stiffler in the American Pie movies. But I have been impressed by your effort this season, when you seem to have decided to go all in.

And now the final at Wimbledon against Federer, who has more or less wiped the court with you in earlier W finals.

Congratulations on not folding when he had you at break point 5-5, and for going on to break him to win 7-5.

I hope you can win two more sets, and your first Wimbledon. Even if you can’t, you’ll have changed at least one casual tennis fan’s opinion.

ETA: What a match! Tied in the 5th set, 12 games all! Andy’s serve hasn’t been broken yet through the match, with Federer’s sets coming via tie break.
