We’re finally back, after a long weekend of watching tennis at the BNP Open, we’re ready to share some of the things we saw at the tennis tournament. We caught a glimpse of Andy Roddick warming up before his match against Ivan Ljubicic in the finals. As he headed to the locker room, you can imagine the rush of fans lining up to get his autograph – we were able to get a couple of close up pictures of the world #8. He wouldn’t pose for a picture with us, but that’s ok, he’s a busy guy. 🙂
Although Roddick lost the tennis match, it sure was close. Roddick and Ljubicic were pretty much battling serves back and forth – Ljubicic cranked a serve at 138mph. The first set, Roddick was given 3 break chances, but was unable to convert them so he settled in going to a deciding tie-break, which he lost.
It was a great tennis match if you were there and we’re sure it was great on TV too. It wasn’t the outcome that most of us were hoping for but that’s ok, it’s always great to watch Andy Roddick play some great tennis. Ljubicic finished out the second set – and the win – in just over 2 hours 7-6, 7-6.
We wish Andy Roddick the best of luck in Miami where he will be playing at the Sony Erricsson Open.
We’ll be back shortly with more post and pictures of the BNP Paribas Open.
