Contemplating the nature of Roddick’s injury

...With the announcement that Roddick has also withdrawn from Indianapolis, I find myself contemplating the impact of his injury from a broader scope. Clearly the US would not have lost to Croatia had Roddick played Davis Cup. Clearly Dmitry Tursunov and Dudi Sela would not be the top seeds in Indianapolis had Roddick not called in sick. An injured Roddick is not good for American tennis.

Because let’s face it, as exciting as Djokovic and Murray may like to believe that they are, American fans are uniquely interested in the trio of Nadal, Federer, and Roddick.

No Roddick was bad for the US open series as he was one of the only players that would play the non 1000 level events in the series. I think that the twins are going to knock Fed out of Canada leaving only Cincy for him to get ready to defend his crown in Flushing. Nice to see Nadal coming back in Canada but with the knees he shouldn't play too much hard court tennis. At least we had an all American final in Indy. Did you watch? I sure didn't!
