American Andy Roddick was upset by Kevin Anderson 6-4 7-5 in the first round of the China Open and then stormed out of the post-match press conference after taking exception to a journalist's line of questioning.
"I didn't serve very well. It was unacceptable," American Roddick told a tense post-match news conference after losing to the South African.
The 29-year-old American then snapped at a Chinese reporter who asked him if he was considering retiring.
"I think you should retire," he said before abruptly leaving the media room.
How to play from the baseline
The expression “to endure the rally” is about those indeterminate moments of a rally where none of the players is leading.
The ability to endure the rally is fundamental when you play a “long rally”, because it offers you the chance to measure your opponent’s strong points and vulnerabilities, besides letting you position as best as possible for your next offensive shot.
