Federer is a machine

In the Australian open semi-finals, Andy Roddick, yet again, got spanked by world #1 Roger Federer 6-4, 6-0, 6-2. After the match, Roddick delivered a pile one-liners and jokes were of little consoluation after this humiliation:

“It was frustrating. It was miserable. ... It was terrible,” Roddick said. “Besides that, it was fine.” Later, one reporter commented that his performance in front of the media was better than his performance on court. “No (kidding),” Roddick said. “If there were rankings for press conferences, I wouldn't have to worry about dropping out of the top five.”

I am not sure why Andy Roddick is so disappointed in this loss. When you have trouble beating a computer generated stick like Pong, you can’t expect to beat a machine like Federer. After seeing your face all over ads this past year, you should now realize that Anna Kournikova isn't the best person to model your tennis career after if you want to hoist some hardware. Her career path will just lead to a bunch of teenage boys masturbating to your picture.
