NEW YORK, N.Y. - If Andy Roddick is willing to go through the necessary steps to return to competitive tennis, the U.S. Open would offer him and pal Mardy Fish a doubles wild card next year. Roddick complained on his Fox Sports Live podcast this week that he wanted to play doubles with Fish at Flushing Meadows next month — until finding out that the 2003 U.S. Open champion is not eligible to compete currently. Roddicks last tournament was the 2012 U.S. Open, and he later officially filed for retirement from pro tennis. That paperwork removed him from the sports anti-doping program, which is why he cant enter this years U.S. Open. Roddick would need to have three months in the drug-testing program before being eligible to return to competition. On Wednesday, U.S. Tennis Association spokesman Chris Widmaier said the organization would be willing to give Roddick and Fish a wild card for doubles at the 2015 U.S. Open. Roddick, who turns 32 on Aug. 30, said that he and Fish had talked recently about the idea of teaming up in New York. Roddick said its something they had originally dreamed about when they were teenagers. But Roddick began thinking about it again recently as a way to allow Fish to have another positive moment in tennis. Fish, a former top-10 player and Grand Slam quarterfinalist, has dealt with health issues and hasnt played a competitive match since August 2013. "Weve been friends. We went to high school together. We went through our entire careers as brothers, as Davis Cup teammates — the whole deal — and selfishly, I wanted to see him have an awesome time on a tennis court again," Roddick said on his podcast. Roddick also said that for him, it would be "a one-time thing; there were no thoughts of a comeback of any other sort." Cheap Nike Huarache China .

After falling behind in the first half due to Tennessees strong shooting, the Gators stepped up their defence down the stretch and won 67-58 Tuesday night for their 16th consecutive victory. Florida also beat the Volunteers in Knoxville for only the second time in its last nine attempts. Florida had allowed opponents to shoot just 38.4 per cent in its first 22 games of the season before Alabama shot 55 per cent in a 78-69 loss to the Gators on Saturday. Tennessee shot 62.5 per cent in the first half Tuesday, but the Volunteers made just 29.2 per cent (7 of 24) of their attempts after halftime. "We didnt press a lot in the first half," Florida coach Billy Donovan said. "The game I thought for us just got kind of stagnant. ... We wanted the game going up and down the floor, to really get into a racing game, and I thought we pressed predominantly most of the second half. We didnt turn them over a lot, but it was just disruptive in terms of flow." Scottie Wilbekin had 21 points and six assists and Michael Frazier II added 11 points for Florida (22-2, 11-0 SEC). Wilbekin and Frazier both made key 3-pointers down the stretch to put the game out of reach. Jarnell Stokes had 20 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee (15-9, 6-5), which was seeking a victory over a highly ranked opponent to boost its NCAA tournament hopes. Jordan McRae had 17 points and Josh Richardson 13. When the teams last met, Florida routed Tennessee 67-41 in Gainesville on Jan. 25 to hand the Volunteers their most lopsided loss in Cuonzo Martins three-year coaching tenure. Tennessee shot 26.8 per cent (15 of 56) overall and 1 of 19 from 3-point range in that game. "We knew we were a better team than that first game anyway, (even) while it was going on," Richardson said. "We came out and played as well as we could today, and they just outplayed us." Tennessee fired up the crowd by having the players walk through a walkway in the Thompson-Boling Arena stands to get to the flooor, allowing fans to greet them on their way.dddddddddddd The student section behind one basket waved orange glow sticks as Tennessees starting lineup was introduced. That atmosphere might have caused the Vols to get a little too amped up early on. After a basket by Stokes gave the Vols an early 2-0 lead, Florida went on a 10-0 run by scoring seven points off five Tennessee turnovers in the first 4 1/2 minutes. But once the Vols settled down, they capitalized on their strong shooting to pull ahead. Tennessee outshot Florida in the first half but only led 34-33 at halftime because of Floridas ability to force turnovers and grab offensive rebounds. "I was really encouraged coming into the half, just for the fact wed shot 36 per cent from the field and they shot 62 and were down by one," Donovan said. "Thats generally a recipe where youre down by 12 to 15." The shots Tennessee was making in the first half stopped falling after halftime as Florida grabbed a seven-point lead. The Vols got back into the game by stepping up the intensity on defence even as their own shots werent falling. Tennessee cut the lead to 55-54 on Stokes three-point play with 4:32 left and had the ball with a chance to take the lead after McRae blocked Wilbekins shot. It was the type of scenario that could have caused the Gators to start thinking about their recent history of frustration in this building. Instead, they created a different finish this time. Tennessee forward Jeronne Maymon committed his eighth turnover of the night, leading to Fraziers 3-pointer that extended Floridas lead to 58-54 with 3:32 remaining. Wilbekin, who had missed his first five attempts from behind the arc, also drained a 3 just more than a minute later to pretty much seal the victory. "I think it has a little bit to do with experience," Wilbekin said. "Four seniors (in the starting lineup). Its been a while since weve had four seniors on the team. Just stepping up, making big plays on the offensive side and on the defensive side especially, staying locked in and not letting up in the last moments of the game." ' ' '
