Invoking the spirit and swagger of his new "advisor" Jimmy Connors, Andy Roddick still couldn't beat Roger Federer.
Tied at one set all, 5-5 in the third, Roddick turned to Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe and said he was having too much fun. He proceeded to drop the next seven games and eventually the match to Federer, who becomes the only man to win Wimbledon and the U.S. Open each year for three consecutive years.
