Oklahoma City:

Two weeks after calling for pro tennis players to unionize, Andy Roddick says he doesn't think any action is imminent and any labor movement in the sport will be "thoroughly thought out."

Roddick said on Sunday night it was striking that players didn't have a collective voice when the weather caused a condensed schedule and other issues at the U.S. Open this month. He said there is "certainly a conversation" about the best interests of players now, although he doesn't expect much movement until the majority of players reconvene in Shanghai next month.

Roddick was in Oklahoma City for an exhibition match against Mardy Fish. He and his brother, John, also teamed up for a doubles match against Fish and David Martin.
