Unhappy The Atp site has a tribute to Todd Martin....

...but they didn't make one up for Rios and Ferriera. I suppose when Kafelnikov does finally announce his retirement we can forget about ATP setting up one for him too. I don't want to take anything away from Martin because he does deserve one but I guess only the "PC Press Good Guys" get one.

Rios just kinda disappeared. Same with Kafelnikov. Takes much of the thump out of their retirements.

As for Ferreira, I'm sure they had something on it there.

They mentioned Rios's retirement but didn't go into detail about him and let fans leave messages for him.

Also throw in this one fact. Todd Martin was much much much more involved in the business side of tennis than any of the players you mentioned.

Was it Martin or Ferreira that was the ATP president for a while? The players council.... Another of the guys I like. It's nothing political... right!? lol

Dirk's observation is absolutely correct.... i can understand what's going on, but the atp is supposed to work for all players and fair should be fair.

Re: The Atp site has a tribute to Todd Martin....

i didn't put Rios in my Old Balls Appreciation thread bec he played in la Republica Dominicana (PanAm Games) after he announced his retirement so i was confused. must make it up to him

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)
