Andy Roddick showed up to his first tournament of the year sporting a new 'do. The 30-year-old American arrived in Melbourne for this week's Kooyong Classic with a freshly shaved mohawk.
"I'm pretty sure I only have a year or two left with hair, so I decided to have fun with it while I did," Roddick said during the introductory news conference.
When you already have a retreating hair line, expensive sports cars and a supermodel wife, this is how late-career crises manifest themselves.
Later in the press conference, Roddick sniped at a reporter who asked whether his wife, Brooklyn Decker, would be attending next week's Australian Open.
Roddick's dry humor is funny, but it's even better when a reporter is up to the task and gives it right back to him. Nice work, Australian guy whose wife is attending the Open.
The haircut and press-baiting didn't help Roddick in his 2012 debut. He lost to Gael Monfils, 7-6, 7-6. Maybe he shouldn't have worn a hat.
