Andy Roddick hilariously live-tweets the Wimbledon final

Sunday July 6th, 2014

Andy Roddick got sucked into the drama of the Wimbledon men's final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic and live-tweeted his analysis and quips during the match, with both revealing and humorous results. The former number one retired in 2012 and now serves as an analyst for Fox Sports Live.

Roddick knew what it was like to face both Federer and Djokovic at the majors. He finished his career with a 5-4 record against Djokovic but it was Federer who remained his career foil. He was 3-21 against the Swiss and went 0-8 against him in the majors. Nowhere did that track record sting more than at Wimbledon. Roddick played in three Wimbledon finals and lost all three to Federer, and the most heartbreaking loss came in 2009 when he held serve for 37 consecutive games only to be broken serving at 14-15 in the fifth set to lose. It was the only break he surrendered all match. 

So yeah, this tweet was funny:

His wife Brooklyn Decker's follow-up tweet might have been even better:
