Andy Roddick Becoming the Norma Rae of Men’s Tennis; Final Moved to Monday

Andy Roddick and the other gentlemen comprising the remaining field of the US Open have advocated for the moving of the men’s final to Monday.  They have won their fight.

Roddick, who has been embroiled in a series of rows with officials over the state of the courts, said it was time players joined forces and took a stand on issues they felt strongly about.

“I have been trying to tell people that talent normally wins in negotiations,” the American added. “If (U2 singer) Bono doesn’t want to go on tour, then it all falls apart.

“But until we unite as one voice, then we’re not going to get what we want. Therefore, we don’t have the right to complain about it.”
