MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

Hmmm. I see a trend about. Roddick threads no longer drown MTF, and Coria seems to have replaced him as "Mr. Unpopular."

Well, let's see...


(Full disclosure: I'm a Coria fan. I like his personality. I'm not a Roddick fan, but give him props for the Houston sneaks.)

This is like a choice between stepping in shit or a bird crapping on you.

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

It's like a choice of dying, you have a choice of which way you want to die, but the result is exactly the same.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

Hmm, I am finding it VERY difficult to choose. I may say Coria, but only just.

too funny.

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)

Yes, this was a good one

I voted for Coria, of course

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

For the record I did vote for Coria, it wasn't really that hard of a decision.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

of course Coria will win this poll (thanks to my and other votes).

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.

I assumed you would judge based on prefered gamestyle, so it went without saying

I lack direction.

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

As the choice was between these two - and just these two, there was no choice - it had to be Coria.

Re: MTF Showdown: Roddick v. Coria!

and i assume that the Duck will not win a poll on this board unless it's "who would u like to see lose in Houston?"

He has a good shot at "of the TMC players, whose hairlines is receeding the most?" too.

It wasn't just on gamestyle, but Coria does use something called a brain when he is on court, more than our esteemed ace machine is capable of doing.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
