1. Overachieving Andy: We've heard for years about what Andy Roddick isn't. He isn't Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal. He isn't a stylist. He isn't a multiple Grand Slam winner. He isn't a clay court specialist. Maybe it's time we recast the discussion and talk about what Roddick is. He is someone who has spent almost an entire decade residing in the top 10.

He is a mensch -- the most recent evidence being his participation in the Champions for Chile fundraiser on the eve of the Key Biscayne final.
