Re: Sky sports - gill reyes interview

Reyes is a very thoughful, Zen kinda guy. that's where Agassi gets it from i think. i'm glad that Steffi likes him or he'd be out of a job

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)

I read an interview from him for an Argentinian newspaper and he seemed like a great guy and really down to earth.

Re: Sky sports - gill reyes interview

i've seen that interview twice now and i think it's brilliant some of the things he said were actually really beautiful and got me kind of emotional i loved his "i made it throuh the rain" thing that was really sweet who'd have thought an interview about andre would involve robin williams and barry mannilow quotes lols.

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Sky sports - gill reyes interview

also liked the way he spoke about andres training for the different surfaces ie:
during the clay season, the ball is hit with more topspin and bounces up so he will work on the upper body, but during wimbledon it doesnt jump up so much so he doesnt do much upper body work

Re: Sky sports - gill reyes interview

yeah i thought that was interesting especially as my main problem is my knees it's interesting to here it all, i also thought it was a great insight into him and the way he works i think it's great he says he'll just get the info and let Andre get on with it. I've always had alot of respect for andre but that interview just gave me even more respect as it were.

Good Luck to my boys
