Andy Roddick among Tennis Hall of Fame inductees

Andy Roddick among Tennis Hall of Fame inductees

ooking around the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Andy Roddick thought about all the things he is not.

Not as good as the historic greats, especially Americans who preceded him into the Newport shrine like John McEnroe, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi. Not as good as the modern Big Four - Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray - who stood in the way of him winning more than one Grand Slam.

"I'm not the best of all time. I'm not going to win Wimbledon. I'm not the best of my generation. I'm not the most well-behaved. I'm not the most polished,'' Roddick said in a speech Saturday that was sometimes funny and sometimes poignant.

Andy Roddick threw his trophies into the trash

Andy Roddick threw his trophies into the trash

Can you believe this??? Former world number 1 and US Open champion, Andy Roddick threw almost all his trophies into the trash.

His wife, Brooklyn Decker, commented in an interview, “He did it one day when I was out of town. [He] decided that these don’t mean success to me, these don’t define me and I don’t really care to have these material things sitting around the house, so he threw them in the trash. I think he saved a few but they are not on display.”

Roddick, who now works a lot at the Andy Roddick Foundation and participates in exhibitions, is a TV commentator, Twitter and Periscope personality, now thinks what he did is was not the best desicion.

On July 22, Andy Roddick will be inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, along with a former women’s No. 1, Kim Clijsters.

Roddick, who retired in 2012, won the 2003 US Open and reached the No. 1 in the rankings. He also played in four Grand Slam, finished in the top 10 for nine straight years from 2002 to 2010 and led the United States Davis Cup team to win the trophy in 2007.

“It’s really, really hard for me to look at myself in the context of the people that are in the Hall of Fame; I feel like they are Michael and I’m Tito,” Roddick said, referring to the singer Michael Jackson and one of his older brothers. “Tito got to play some pretty cool venues, too, but it’s weird for me.”

Roddick beats Murray, makes Miami Cup final

Andy Roddick beat Andy Murray 6-2, 6-3 at the Miami Tennis Cup exhibition event and will face Nicolas Almagro, who defeated John Isner 6-3 6-4, in the final.

Murray, trailing 2-5 in the first set, surrendered his serve in the eighth game when he sailed a backhand crosscourt wide.
In the second set, the Scott saved two break points from down 0-40, but couldn't convert the third to give Roddick a 5-3 lead. At 15-0, Roddick double-faulted twice in a row, but went on to win the final three points of the match with a service winner and two forehand winners.

"If we had gone three sets I would've had a full body cramp and it would've been awkward for all of you," said Roddick. "There's no comeback (to tennis for me). Andy was nice to me tonight."
