Andy Roddick On USA Goal That Was Stolen By Ref: USA Got Mugged (VIDEO)

US Open tennis champ Andy Roddick spoke his mind on the disallowed US goal against Slovenia in Friday's World Cup game--a goal that would have meant a win for the US, who came back from a tough 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the 81st minute.

Asked whether he understood the rules of soccer, Roddick replied:

I understand the rules of football so well that apparently when two Slovenian guys mug an American guy, the American guy gets called for a foul.
