A sign of the times: Both Andy Roddick and Juan Carlos Ferrero, each ranked no. 1 in the world in 2003 (Roddick won the USO over JCF after JCF had captured the French), pulled out of the French today. Roddick cited a shoulder injury, as did Ferrero. Cue the their-careers-are-done obits now.
Throwing in the (clay) towel: As @TheSliceTweets pointed out, A-Rod’s shoulder seemed just fine in Tuesday in Nice.
