But none of the other courts have stopped play. He better not have done this just so he can talk to Brad, the little cheater.

Re: Andy Roddick asked for a break and he got it!!!!

Well it was raining very, very lightly when Roddick walked off, but stopped in about 30 seconds - Mario complained and didn't want to stop, but by that time Duckboy was off the court. Previously he had complained and moaned about a nearby car alarm going off, and then the band that were playing in the eating area Strange that Ancic and the other players didn't complain. Now all the other matches are continuing - including Bjorkmann/Woodbridge, and words fail me about the arrogance of Duckboy so I will leave it and just quote what Boris Becker said in his commentary on TV:-

"Andy should remember this is not the Andy Roddick Show it is a Wimbledon Semi-Final".

Well said Boria and Come on Mario!!!

I'm really pissed off. This is really weird. I hope it doesn't disturb Mario cause this is just not fair.

Re: Andy Roddick asked for a break and he got it!!!!

maybe Andy is paranoid b/c it turned out knifeman was a hitman hired to assassinate him--yes, assassinate

if Mario is good enough player, this wont bother him--so i dont think there is anything to worry about

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Re: Andy Roddick asked for a break and he got it!!!!

The whole situation is disgraceful and the umpire has allowed himself to be intimidated.

Well, Boris also said that he would have used the same "trick" (rain interruption)...

But honestly, and since play wasn't interrupted on any other court, i think this move will really be seen as a bad one against Andy.

Basically the decision is neither.

Andy asked for an interruption, then the referee used his talkie to contact the director board or something (Allan Mills maybe) and he got the instruction to stop the play...

But all in all, Andy was the one to ask for the interruption and it wouldn't have happened without it.

Nothing. The referee sayd : "Play suspended" before Andy start to serve.

-edit-
There was a local rain on this court soon after the play was suspended.

Do you see any umbrellas on that picture?
I guess the weather is very local in Wimbledon , rains on one court and not on the others.
