Seren'a close friend Andy Roddick says her return is what tennis needs.
Roddick thinks that women’s tennis has not been in good situation without Serena:
"I mean, I think, no disrespect to any of the women that are playing right now, but I think women's tennis needs that dominating figure."
And a defense of her 2010 Wimbledon title would not be an impossible accomplishment for Serena, according to Roddick:
"I don't think it would shock anybody if she came through and won it again. It's very smart of her to play a lead-up event [Serena's playing Eastbourne], especially after being gone for a year."
Also, Roddick admires the extra things Serena brings to tennis:
"She's a great champion, but she brings pop culture to tennis. She brings crossover appeal and creates storylines even when she's not trying which, at the end of the day, is a healthy thing for our sport."
I mean these two are great friends and they go way back, and yes I did once hold hope they would marry because seriously, they get along pretty well and known each other since dinosaurs roamed the earth.
Cute presser guys...
