(AP) -- More people want to ask Andy Roddick about a Grand Slam final he lost than the one he won.

Yes, that 16-14 defeat in the fifth set against Roger Federer at Wimbledon in 2009 seems to spark more conversations than Roddick's straight-set victory at the 2003 U.S. Open, the last time any American man won a major championship.

"For better or worse, it's going to be the `09 Wimbledon final. It's the match people want to talk about. I'll be in a coffee shop and people want to talk about it.
