Thanks for posting these. Sheesh...JMPD looks even more fragile and gangly when he goes shirtless. He just seems so thin!
Deb- did you see any of Fernando's interactions with fans? I have heard several accounts from different tournaments about how Verdasco is one of the nicest guys on tour.
Well for a skinny guy, JMDP hits the bejeesus out of the ball
he looked very gangly and skinny and tall in person, more so than i had remembered before. But man, he was crushing it.
As for Verdasco, I've seen him practice before at IW and honestly, never really seen much interaction with fans (I left his first practice before it was over, some guys were waiting for him to sign their tennis stuff, but I don't know what happened).... but in general he seems always to be in a pretty good mood - intense during practices, but smiling and stuff like that, so I can't say for sure based on what I myself have witnessed in terms of actual fan interaction, but he definitely seems like a good-natured guy
Thanks, I just know that when people say shoulder, most immediately think of the front of the shoulder. It looks to me like Roddicks is in the back of his shoulder, and does have some nerves involved. According to my ortho, that's what puts pressure on the trap, which in turn tightens up the neck. That's when I noticed the other day that A-Rod had similar limitations in movement that I do. Hopefully his will heal quickly, he's a lot younger than me. Thanks for your kind words..
Well, his shoulder problem that took him out of RG and should've taken him out of Wimbledon was an inflamed rotator cuff. He says that's healed. This one, he said, was on the left side of his neck near the spine but on the left side. I have no idea beyond what he says in press conferences. Maybe your ortho is better than Andy's doctors and they haven't discovered the real problem
Holy Fucking Shit
Awesome pics Deb!
