Andy Roddick might be an American tennis player, but nearly all his business interests are actually based his France.
Going into yesterday’s match against Robin Soderling, Rafael Nadal was 31-0 at Roland Garros and was aiming for his fifth straight French Open title. The odds of Nadal losing Soderling, the 29th ranked player in the world, were extremely high. How high?
