London - (Ass Mess): Internet spread betting index Aintgottaprayer.com has told punters that betting on Andy Roddick to break his duck and finally win the Men's Championship at Wimbledon this year is like wagering on George Bush's ratings to rocket above 90% approval for winning the Iraq war.
Despite other less honest sites claiming Roddick's 9/1 price is overwhelming value and 'an absolute steal' canny backers are staying away in droves from any ante-post wagers involving Roddick who they believe is not just hexed but largely mediocre on grass save for a good first service 48% of the time.
"Siege gun server Roddick looks a great alternative to Roger Federer to win Wimbledon" one site says which also offers on three legged Aidan O'Brien-trained three year old no-hoper George Washington winning anything other than a donkey derby race at Royal Ascot this year.
Yet Roddick still remains calm and convinced he can take another masterclass in humiliation from the immensely laid-back Federer who once again looks like he will wipe the floor with the fidgety little Roddick - if only just to amuse himself and keep himself fit for another season.
Punters are warned to dismiss any site that is quoting odds on Roddick winning anything at Wimbledon this year.
His game is over save a few minor events that will matter diddly-squat in the earnings rankings.
