Becca, why are you mocking legendary tennis writer Bud Collins? So, he's not quite the prognosticator that I am! But he knows so much about tennis. And I've enjoyed his work for many years!

By the way Becca, I'm picking Agassi and Roddick, too. The only thing that can stop Roddick is his foot injury.

Egalite!

the cat, you are welcome to love bud the spud.

But as far as I'm concerned, 200 year old men who call 19/20 year old women "sex with a tennis racquet", as he did with Anna- are dirty.

Furthermore, more often than not I find his pre match analysis' to be laughable.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Becca, I enjoy his writing and commentary most of the time. But I don't love him! LOL!

How did you know he said that about Anna? By the way Becca, he was kidding!

Egalite!

Let's get back to the thread. Hewitt and Roddick are the clear favorites in their matches. Right?

Egalite!

the cat - Hewitt has beaten Agassi three times in a row now, right? *too lazy to check* So he is for sure.

Andy is if you only look at the head to heads, but I wouldn't say he is the *clear* favourite..

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

That's not nice, Becca! I know Hewitt has Agassi's number. That why I thought he might be the clear favorite. Roddick has the Deer in the headlights look! What a dissapointment. He's being schooled by Sampras. Wahe up Andy!

If Sampras makes the final, he won't have enough energy left to win the final. Just like in 2000 and 2001.

Egalite!

all i want is for Queen Pandy to give the Android a good match so that he has no energy left to beat Agassi in the finals. but apparently i'm asking for to much.

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)

lol
tennischick you're funny!

I like bud. I have yet to see an article by him bemoaning/celebrating the death of men's tennis and for that alone he has my undying gratitude and eternal devotion.

By the way www.tennisreporters.net has a good article in defense of mens' tennis directly rebutting the NYT (f******g a*******s)

Funny you say this - last time I heard Pete was going to lose in the first round this year

Keep proving 'em wrong Pete

Yes, the match record is 4-2. Hewitt has won the last 3 times and he won the match in Adelaide about 5 years ago...but they have never played in a Slam before, so it will be whoever wants it more badly
