Just two days after what may have been Andy Roddick’s most emotional match, it wasn’t unforeseeable that Sunday could have been his last. Like a baseball team that plays lethargic on a Sunday afternoon following a late night walk-off win, Roddick had to quell Friday Night Lights residue. After four sets however, retirement was delayed once more.
Roddick defeated Fabio Fognini 7-5, 7-6, 4-6, 6-4 and continued his fight against putting down the racquet. Once again, even in a half-filled Arthur Ashe stadium, the Flushing fans made their presence felt for their American.
