Red face is Duckboy the third William sister?

he seems to think that the solution to every challenge on court is always to generate more power and to hit even harder.

i am surprised that Brad the trickster has not taught him that this is not always the way to go.

makes me wonder is Brad an effective coach or simply an excellent scout?

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Re: is Duckboy the third William sister?

Well I can see Federer having a few more victories over him at Wimbledon if Roddick continues just with all out power, he's definetely improved his backhand but needs to work on a lot more variety of shot and what federer does so well is mix up the pace of shot which would be of great advantage for Andy Roddick if he could introduce this into his game.

Re: is Duckboy the third William sister?

TC, I think Brad Gilbert is both an excellent coach and an excellent scout. Roddick was playing well against Federer until the last rain delay and that hurt him. Federer has more talent than Roddick does and is a better grass court player than Roddick is. But Andy had Roger in trouble but didn't get the job done in their Wimbledon final.

And TC, LOL @ your third Williams sister quip. But the third Williams sister is said to be Maria Sharapova.

Egalite!

I find it a bit ironic. Before the match I was pretty sure that rain delays were going to be in Andy's favor because of the coaching situation. I thought that Gilbert would fill him in with tactics and positive outlook.

Re: is Duckboy the third William sister?

The rain delays would have helped Andy more had he been in the losing position, but on both accounts, he was winning so what can Brad tell him the rain delays helped Roger relax more and he started to do things out there. And why did a whole bunch of posts get taken out of this thread I only see 4 posts but this thread had at least 30 or them beforehand

Yes, he was winning, but I looked at the statistics at that time and was very surprised to see- 87-89 points won in Andy's favor. Besides, second set was very weird by Andy's standards( lost serve 3 times).

i didn't actually. there was some glitch as i posted the thread and the next thing i saw were two threads. i tried deleting this one but that is not an option on this board. check for yourself.

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.
