Roddick likes his chances
Published June 25, 2007
WIMBLEDON, England - Enough with the clay. Andy Roddick was thrilled to get back to the grass.
After bowing out in the first round at the French Open, Roddick figures he'll have much more success on the manicured lawns of Wimbledon. He won the grasscourt tuneup last weekend at Queen's Club for the fourth time.
"I feel like a good player again when I step onto the grasscourts," said the No. 3-seeded American, who faces Justin Gimelstob in the first round today. "There's a certain sense of excitement, anxiousness. I got over here really early. I had to guard against getting too fired up the first couple days in practice because there was still a long time before I was even going to play a match."
He has reached the final twice, losing to Roger Federer in 2004 and 2005.
Top-seeded Federer counts Roddick among the threats. "If Andy's in form, I think he's in good shape because I think grass is one of his best surfaces."
Wrist injury forces Murray to withdraw
The man widely considered Britain's best hope for a strong showing won't be playing.
Eighth-seeded Andy Murray pulled out Sunday with a right wrist injury.
"The doctor has advised me not to play and that I probably need about 10 days to be ready. Unfortunately, I don't think it is going to rain for the next 10 days," Murray said. "I love playing Wimbledon because of the great support I get from the British public, and that is what I will miss the most."
Murray was replaced in the field by American Kevin Kim.
