Little Old Andy Roddick

To listen to Andy Roddick over the last two weeks, you’d think he was closer to the end of his career than the beginning. He said before the Open began, “I still feel like I have another Slam in me. At least that’s what I’m shooting for.”

Then he said this today about his potential quarterfinal date with Roger Federer: “I’m excited. I expect a lot of myself. I don’t think anybody else really expects much from me.”

Is he purposefully lowering expectations so he can surprise all of us? Or because he won’t?
