I've called Andy Roddick a lot of things, but gutless is not one of them. Super ups to him for pulling out of Dubai because of Visa-Gate:
American Andy Roddick says he won't defend his title at the Dubai ATP tournament next week in protest at the UAE's refusal to grant a visa to Israel's Shahar Peer at the WTA event.
``I don't know if it's the best thing to mix politics and sports, and that was probably a big part of it.''
Roddick's announcement is a blow to the sponsors of the Dubai event which has also been stripped, through injury, of world top two Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
I'm still really bummed, though not surprised, that Nole and Muzz are still playing.
