Andy Roddick’s last match as a twentysomething would not be his last match at the 2012 U.S. Open. Even as Roddick’s 30th birthday approaches Thursday, his serve was old school in a 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory. “You really don’t see that shot,” Rhyne Williams, who took the loss, said glowingly about Roddick’s serve.
