Watch: Andy Roddick airballs smash

By C.W. Sesno,

In a second-round match against Bjorn Phau, Andy Roddick went for a Pete Sampras-esque 'Slam Dunk'. Unfortunately, he mistimed his jump and totally whiffed on what seemed to be a relatively easy overhead. Roddick would go on to win the match 6-3, 7-6 (1), 6-3. And, to his credit, the botched smash wasn't as bad as Petra Kvitova's at the Australian Open.
