Bamos.

"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."

Re: Madrid R1: Blake takes out Hanescu 6-2 6-4

That surface has nothing to do with clay.

Blake produced some good shots, but it was also obvious why his results are less than decent on clay. After hitting approximately two shots cross court he went down the line, some of them attempts to hit a direct winner. Even juniors know that is pretty much a suicide on clay. Worked for Blake today, but RG will be a LOT slower. He might actually have to use some topspin with his shots there.

Of course he does, but wasting his clay talent and time on these nobodies will jeopardize his chances against Tsonga in FO final.

I am quite sure that he knows what that term means. Or at least he heard about it... on TV... or something...

Blake has a topspin forehand....but it really doesn't fit with his style of play. He has to go guns ablazin or he just gets out of sorts.
