Another reason i don't like roddick

watching the tape of his semi i realized one more thing i really don't like about him. the commentators keep talking about his charisma and how he interacts with the crowd and respects his opponents, but, i have realized that he only does that when he is winning. the moment he gets down in a match he turns into a little bitch constantly argueing and screaming. there were literally tears in his eyes towards the end of the hewitt match. remember playing goran in 2001. he threw himself onto the ground and had a hissy-fit. anyways, just one more reason to hate him...

btw, has anyone noticed that no one sits next to mattress mac the entire row is empty except for him. lol

have you noticed that Mattress Mac starts clapping wildly when the Duck gets a point, and the minute the camera zooms in on him he stops. poor guy. he's trying so hard to undo last year's mistakes ya gotta grant him that

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)

Re: Another reason i don't like roddick

hey croat you could have posted this in any other thread about roddick on the front page, there is 10 at least.

i dont blame you for being bitter as Roddick is on a 8 match winning streak against croat players

Its funny how you dont like Roddick and you are croatian after all the croat players must adore roddick just look at how they try to play the same game style as roddick. I think at tennis schools in croatia roddick must be very popular.

Re: Another reason i don't like roddick

ummm...no. most tennis fans there can't stand him. if you think most players play that style of play, then you know nothing about (recent) tennis history

i am sure the croatian tennis schools are covered with roddick posters, coaches keep saying roddick quotes and they are forced to watch 10 hours of roddick matches per day.

No, croatian tennis schools are filled with posters and quotes of the most knowledgeable tennis fan ever, Hitchhiker.

Watch 10 hours of Roddick playing? Thanks for the excellent tip on how to cure my insomnia.

Re: Another reason i don't like roddick

Come on, now... you really expect Andy to be thrilled and personable when he's losing?

I'm usually all for hating players... and Andy certainly gives you enough ammo... but you guys take it quite far with Andy.

There needs to be a middle ground between the WTAWorld and this board.

Venus & Serena are basically the female equivalent of Andy... and if you peep one negative word about them, you're banned and burned at the stake. Here with Andy, it's just fine and dandy.

Re: Another reason i don't like roddick

look at it this way. goran had charisma. he could lose his top, but he always had fun out there. i remember he was once getting his ass kicked by guga and there were two airplane seats on court and he fooled around with them during the changeover. roddick just strikes me as too fake.

Yeah, it was INCREDIBLY charismatic and funny of Goran to call that linesman at Wimbledon a 'faggot' I was rolling in the aisles.

That's your opinion. There were people who couldn't stand Goran and found his stick a little tiresome.

My question is why are you giving someone you don't like so much power over you? Why don't you concentrate more on the players you like instead of the one player you apparently despise?
