What he said:
“Cramp in your ass, you can’t sit on it anymore. Makes it tough.”
Andy Roddick expounds on Rafael Nadal’s cramps collapse at his post-match interview.
Yeah, not to put a dampener on the story, which I know you guys think is really big, but people cramp after matches when you’re cold. It’s just something that happens. It’s just unfortunate it happened in front of you all. Every single player in there has had that happen before. Every single one. What we do, we run around, run miles and miles and miles and miles on the tennis court in nasty weather. You throw nerves in there, I mean, it happens. As long as it doesn’t happen during a match, you’re fine.
What he really meant:
“Have you ever seen a guy stand when he’s suffering from cramps?”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Cold weather, nerves and plenty of running. What a cocktail for adrenaline.”

India’s chances of progressing further in the Davis Cup World Group were dealt a severe blow by an unkind draw.
India have to contend with top seeds Serbia in the first round to be played in the first week of March, next year.
The Serbs have Djokovic, Tipsarevic , Troicki and Ninad Zemonjic in their ranks.
The Indians can count on Paes and Bhupathi to win their doubles rubber but the other two points will have to come from Bopanna and Somdev Devvarman.
Somdev is capable of springing a surprise but the dice are heavily loaded in the Serbians’ favour.
