Re: Roddick on Clay

He got married and is on his honeymoon. Roddick is NEVER one to shy away from things, even if he struggles on the clay courts. This was obviously the best time for him to take off and get married since the clay season is never a huge points season for him anyways. It would be stupid of him to do it during any other season as his ranking will suffer greatly.

Clearly not a fan.

Re: Roddick on Clay

He's not on his honeymoon, he's too busy track training with local radio show hosts in Austin, making eggs and starbucks runs, photographing his dog, and telling the world about it on twitter how a propos, he just posted that he's coming back in Madrid

Re: Roddick on Clay

Andy picking up injuries on clay which cuts into his grass season, yeah I miss him on clay too.






"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

In all seriousness, when's the last year he made it out of the clay season uninjured? I can't even remember.......shoulder, ankle, back/neck, knee, those are just the ones i remember off the top of my head

Today, Andy tweeted that he planned to play Madrid. This was after he ate soy eggs in the morning, ran Bobby Bones off the track, went to Starbucks afterwards, took pictures of his dog in the car, got pissed that Miami lost to Atlanta, and had a smoothie before hitting the practice courts. Tonight, he'll probably watch the other b-ball playoff after he drops his wife off at the airport back to NYC.

Thought you might like to know.

It's been a few years, hence why I don't care if he skips clay altogether. His body rejects it wholly.
