Andy Roddick TENNIS STAR
The husband of 2010 SI Swimsuit Issue cover model Brooklyn Decker won the ATP Masters 1000 series Sony Ericsson Open outside Miami
How do you rate winning the Sony Ericsson?
Andy Roddick: I had a good month. The Masters 1000 events are the ones just outside the Slams. I made a final earlier in the month in Palm Springs. And then to win in Miami, it was a real good month for me.
How much pressure do you feel from the American tennis fans who pin their hopes on you?
AR: It's always there. To be honest, it's something that I've kind of been touted with since I was 17. And if there is pressure or expectation there, it's normally a good thing. That means people think you're good enough to pull off something real big.
If you could win one grand slam event....
AR: It would be Wimbledon.
Do you think Roger Federer felt sympathetic toward you after he beat you in that epic final at Wimbledon last year?
