Re: LA Practice Day Report (Pictures, Videos coming soon)

Nice report Deb, thanks.

Maybe I'm a little slow on the uptake, but what has Spadea done to upset everyone? I'm aware that some of his book upset a number of his colleagues, and I have to say that he isn't the most "pleasant" character (although not obnoxious) but it isn't uncommon for these "characters" to find others with similar traits.

And Spadea's fashion sense... At Notts he wore a red and white stripe cap (on sideways for a time) with blue and white stripe tracksuit.

He's just so incredibly obnoxious. what's funny is that 3 years ago when I went to this same practice day, I noticed the same exact thing - that everyone ignored him.

Well.... it's strange. He was moving ok, etc. In fact I was impressed with how healthy he looked until he started talking to Doug a lot and stopped hitting topspin forehands...then near the end of the practice I was like, wait, he hasn't taken any serves at all It's weird, because he said in Cincy that what was bad was like on the left side of his neck/upper spine, he said the opposite side from where his shoulder was a problem etc. But then yesterday he does everything except - serve, overheads, and he sliced a lot of forehands b/c he said hitting them hurt, which doesn't seem to make sense with something wrong on the left side. Honestly, I dunno what that would be but he certainly can't win matches without a serve and a normal forehand (even if his forehand is sucktastic right now). So I imagine if he can't hit them by Wednesday, he couldn't well play. According to his site he won't play til Thursday night.

Hm, okay, thanks, I've never heard of him so at least I don't feel badly about not recognizing him

working on the pictures now

Here's a video of how Andy was hitting forehands, for those interested. The pictures are all there but I'm just labeling them then I'll post some samples here and the link etc. http://www.flickr.com/photos/debstah...7606530170638/

Re: LA Practice Day Report (Pictures, Videos coming soon)

yeah, now when I look closer I see he`s older than Zverev, but otherwise he`s so similar-tall,lefty,nike clothing,also same face-features...

Roddick goofing off - I'm not sure what he was trying to do, but he did it like 5 times during the practice and was really amused with himself for trying.
Roddick practices running down dropshots
Roddick Practicing - you can see the messed up FHs here
Roddick 2-minute drill 1 - hadn't seen this one before - he was running around slicing while John fed him balls, and I guess the goal was to keep the ball in play for 2 min while they were timed on a stopwatch
