Busted Racquet - Tennis

Unlike, say, being a ball boy at an Andy Roddick match.

The 2003 U.S. Open champion sat with ESPN's Chris Fowler after his first-round win on Tuesday night and took shots at all tennis analysts who have the audacity to give their opinions on his erratic play:

Since the video quality is mediocre, here's a handy transcription:

"Tennis analyst is the easiest job in the world because whatever the person does, if it works you just say that's what's good, and if it doesn't work, you guys go, 'He should have done the other things.' So, you know, I'm pretty convinced that I could be a tennis analyst when I'm done ...

"It just doesn't take much thought... If I'm grinding and I'm winning, you guys are like, 'He's reinvented himself.' If I'm playing like crap and pushing, then, it's, you know, 'He's horrible and he needs to hit the ball.' Everyone's an expert but I'm better than most of them, I believe."

Notice he didn't say anything about how easy it is to be a tennis blogger. That's because Andy must have heard how tough this job can be. Just yesterday my mom didn't even cut the corners off my PB&J when she made me lunch and brought it down to me in the basement.
