Word out of Cincinnati today is that Andy Roddick did indeed have, or still has, a case of mono.

Speaking to the press today, Roddick said, “”I pulled out last week on the advice of doctors. I got some blood work done in Washington, and then again in Texas, and one of them came back positive. I’ve been dealing with a mild, mild case of mono for the last couple of months that I wasn’t really sure about.”

He went on to say, “They think I’m fine now. They think I’m most of the way through it, if not all the way through it. It’s kind of a mental relief opposed to wondering why and if I was out of shape.”

A couple of months? In that case shall we strike all of Roddick’s results since his Miami title a la Roger Federer from the start of 2008? Does Dudi Sela get an asterisk for his win over Andy at Queen’s? Yen Hsun Lu?

Here we go again.

At least Roddick sounds like he’s okay now, and he’ll need to be given the section of the draw he’s in at Cincinnati with Soderling, Djokovic and Nalbandian.

Federer, John Isner and of course Mario Ancic have all been afflicted by the virus.

(I’ve added the video from Roddick’s press conference – Tom).

Ancic, Roger, Isner, and now Roddick. Who will be next?


Now you can see Says:

Now you can see what even a mild, mild case of mono can do to a player. Now think back how Fed was able to still pull through to Aussie Open Semis when he had a bout — and the finals of the next two grand slams. Tells you about his class and talent.


Kimmi Says:

those who were wondering how federer played tennis with mono..this is a good example. looks like you can still play tennis with “mild mono”
