  1. The rising tide of young American players

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    One of the most useful proverbs for tennis is the expression "A rising tide lifts all boats." It doesn't hurt the argument that it was one of the favorite sayings of a true titan of the game, the late Arthur Ashe. Just think about it: Remember the S...

  2. Reason to celebrate in San Jose

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    For a moment, it seems just like old times for American tennis again. Five U.S. men are now lodged in the quarterfinals of the SAP Open in San Jose: Andy Roddick, James Blake, Mardy Fish, Sam Querrey and Todd Widom. Wait, there's more good news! Wido...

  3. Don't dispute the pageantry of Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The reason Davis Cup is such a great event, and why the basic format should be preserved at all cost, was in great evidence during Day 1 play. To fully understand why, ask yourself these questions: • How would you like Andy Roddick's chan...

  4. Roddick's big gamble

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It's always a pleasure talking with or listening to Andy Roddick; he's got that Nebraska boy's penchant for common sense combined with a quick, sharp mind and a streak of compulsive honesty. In a tangential comment made during a conference call the o...

  5. How far can the French fly?

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It wasn't exactly Barack Obama-grade hope, but during the first week at Roland Garros, the U.S. men -- sans Andy Roddick, who missed the second Grand Slam of the year with a right shoulder injury -- gave American fans plenty of reasons to feel optimi...

  6. Good to be Andy

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    All in all, it's a good time to be Andy Roddick. Despite a rough start at the Australian Open (where Roddick lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round), he's caught fire. In the past two months, he's won two tournments, beaten each of the elit...

  7. Connors: Therapist and coach

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Now that Andy Roddick and Jimmy Connors have split, many fans and pundits will assess the relationship and decide it was a huge success in one sense: Jimmy Connors managed to turn Andy Roddick into nearly as big a jerk as Connors himself was in his h...

  8. Beware France

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    I have just five words for the U.S. Davis Cup squad now that the first-round of the competition is over: "Well done and ... beware France." Andy Roddick and his crew, the defending Davis Cup champs, survived the ugly weekend on ugly clay in Austr...

  9. Kudos to the captain of America

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    It's unequivocally true that the U.S. Davis Cup squad that beat Russia in the final this weekend to end a 12-year U.S. drought is Andy Roddick's team. But by the end of the final, it seemed equally true that this was U.S. captain Pat McEnroe's Davis ...

  11. It's plug-pulling time

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    If you were the promoter of the Thailand Open right about now, somebody with a bullhorn would be looking up at you on the ledge, pleading with you to step back, think it over, and realize what a good life it really is. That's because Andy Roddick, Ra...

  12. Best in show at Davis Cup

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    The come-from-behind Russian win was spectacular and Andy Roddick's third-day heroics for team USA were the definition of "clutch", but the most compelling story at the end of another Nationalistic Orgy Weekend (aka Davis Cup) wasn't about the Big Da...

  13. What you won't see at U.S. Open

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    We have a pretty good idea of the things we're likely to see at the U.S. Open, starting on Monday, which include: humongous serves from Andy Roddick, Ivo Karlovic, Tomas Berdych and John "wild card" Isner, ice cream cones so expensive you have to buy...

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    Gee, Sunday felt just like old times again! Two Americans (Andy Roddick and John Isner) in the final of the big summer hard-court tournament in Washington, D.C. and a faux American, Maria Sharapova (but she's a true-blue Russian to the bone, honest!...

  15. Roddick rebounds on red clay

    Peter Bodo, TENNIS.com

    If you think about it, there couldn't have been a better way for Andy Roddick to get over the licking he took from Roger Federer in the Australian Open semifinals (Roddick won just six games) than the Davis Cup weekend that ended last Sunday. Going...
