Roddick was concerned. A right shoulder injury last year had forced him to withdraw before the French Open, but the trainer all but assured him there was nothing structurally wrong. I felt like I could hit it straight ahead OK,'' he said. ''I was just lacking movement and wasn't able to snap the ball off too well with sports shoes sale Adidas Devotion PB Running Shoes Black Blue. I don't feel like I had my best serve today.
