RODDICK: I just started listening to him like a year and a half ago. What do you think about Martina winning the mixed doubles championship at this year’s Australian Open at the age of 46? The coolest thing about Martina is that, even with all the success she has had, when she walks into the players’ lounge, she wears beach shorts and just hangs out. JOHN: I’ve always loved women’s tennis because of the great players—Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova. But [we get less coverage] when we’re in a foreign country. It would create more interest because there a lot of neat personalities [in the game right now].The song was introduced on February 9, 2007 via Moore's My Space page. Bille Jean King is a good friend of mine, and she is still 100,000 percent into tennis. RODDICK: I remember when I was first coming up, Billie Jean would come up to me [and say], “Oh, it’s great what you’re doing! JOHN: Very few people still love to play at that age. JOHN: If she sees a kid playing well she gets excited about it.
On some songs I haven’t played for a while, I forget the words. RODDICK: There are some days when you wake up and you’re not feeling great and practicing is the last thing you want to do. There are a bunch of young Americans coming up right now, which is pretty exciting. JOHN: Right now you’ve got the Williams sisters, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, and yourself. JOHN: Are you friendly on the road with other players, or do people keep to themselves?The chorus is led by drums and two guitars, and the song ends with a guitar solo.It is Moore's fifth collaboration with James Renald, who wrote her 2002 single "Cry" and other tracks on the album Wild Hope. What makes men’s tennis exciting is that you don’t know the outcome before you go in. I grew up watching Pete and Andre [Agassi], and Jim [Courier] and, at the end of their careers, [John] Mc Enroe and [Jimmy] Connors. You can pretty much pick eight players, and six of them will be in the quarterfinals. RODDICK: It’s tough for little girls to play the Williams sisters, who are these powerhouse athletes.
