Big news today in the US Open as Andy Roddick announces his retirement after playing the US Open. I started watching tennis about a decade ago at then end of Pete Sampras' career. When Roddick won the US Open, I thought he would be the next Sampras and win more Grand Slams. Little did I know that a fellow by the name of Roger Federer would get in the way. Anyway, it was a wonderful career. He's the second big name player who is retiring after this year's US Open. Clijsters will also retire as well. I've been a big fan of Clijsters since she came out of retirement after having a child. I didn't expect that she would do so well winning a few Slams. Best wishes to both of these players.
