There’s no doubt who is in charge of potential Andy Roddick-Serena Williams mixed doubles pairing, it’s Serena!
When asked what the status was of their hopeful partnership at summer Olympics this July in London, Roddick joked, “You have to ask the boss lady.” And that boss lady is Serena.
“I’m in. I’m way far in,” said Roddick.
Serena is again skipping Indian Wells, but she and sister Venus are still scheduled to play in Miami in two weekends.
Roddick, who’s been hit hard with injuries this year, said that he’s finally healthy and feeling good about his game. I feel fine. You know, every week is better,” Roddick said. “I played three matches in Delray and one in The Garden, and that was in a pretty short period of time. It was probably more than I have done for a while. You know, so better and better.
“I’m in a lot better place than I was two weeks ago, that’s for sure,” he said.
Ranked No. 31, Roddick opens his bid for a first Indian Wells title against Lukasz Kubot of Poland. Kubot beat Roddick the only time they played at 2009 Beijing.
