I had a chicken fajita pita one time at Jack in the Box and it tasted pretty good. Going down. Problem was, it wasn’t nearly so pleasant a situation the following day. That most likely was the case for Andy Roddick, although there is no confirmation that he was snacking at Jack’s.
Roddick admitted Monday that a late-night fast food meal after a match last week in Indianapolis was what slowed him down in a semifinal loss on Saturday to Frank Dancevic. At the time Roddick complained of “a stomach bug or something.”
But Roddick says he started feeling better several hours after that loss, and proclaimed himself ready to play Tomas Zib on Tuesday in the second round at the Legg Mason Tennis Classic, a tournament Roddick has won twice.
Word of advice, Mr. Roddick: when you’re a professional athlete in the middle of training, try to stay away from the nation’s finest food spots. You’re making some serious bucks, the least you could do is afford to pay a nutritionist or chef to come on the road with you, right? Either that, or maybe it’s time to learn some discipline at the trainer’s table.
