One final goodbye for Roddick
NEW YORK -- Since he announced that this U.S. Open would be his final tournament six days ago, all eyes at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center have followed Andy Roddick.
On Wednesday, there were two more -- brown ones -- watching Roddick from Los Angeles. Pete Sampras, a five-time champion and eight-time finalist here, won his last match in the 2002 final over Andre Agassi at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
It was a year before he made a formal retirement announcement.
