Andy Roddick Says “Ask The Boss Lady” Serena About Playing Olympic Mixed Doubles

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.

A rod has broken L Kubot when he was serving for the match. Hope Andy can get away with th set and the match!

RZ Says:

I get that Serena and Andy are friends, but I’m not sure why she’d choose to play with him when she could choose to play with one of the Bryans or Mardy Fish, who are all better doubles players than Roddick.

Elke Says:

Go A-Rod, we love you

Joan Says:

You are the best- even when you do not win. Go andy

Mikey Says:

I am so happy Serena is not playing in Indian Wells. Wonder why? Ask all the American fans who root for players from other countries when the top two American players are from Miami, Fl. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to go figure? I hope she never plays at Indian Wells again.

Mikey’s an ass. Comments like that are not welcome,
especially in the tennis community. I think the two
sisters are a very well spoken and a credit to their
sport. They took a lot a shit from bigot’s like this
Mikey, and they do not deserve it. They have always
conducted them selves as lady’s and showed great
sportsmanship. Their well rounded and apparently were brought up with good values. Show some respect.
