Andy Roddick is already training “down under” in Australia where he begins his 2011 tennis season with a title defense in Brisbane.
In the interview below, Roddick gives his thoughts on 2011 outlook and his game.
Here are a few snippets:
“I definitely don’t feel like I was well prepared for the last little bit of last year,” said Roddick who lost his last four matches. “And it showed.”
“I feel like i had a pretty good off-season and excited to start this year fresh.”
Roddick also said he’s feeling as fit or as “right” as he’s been since last May, just before he got hit with a mono virus.
“I think it’s the first time I’ve felt right since last May so when you are fit it takes a lot of the mental pressure off. You feel like you can play any way you want so I feel fresh and I feel enthused and ready.”
Roddick beat Radek Stepanek in the 2010 Brisbane final. He finished this past year No. 8 in the ATP Rankings.
