Wink Best excuses if Roddick and/or Fish win a set or a match in Sevilla

In analogy to the "best excuses if Gaudio wins a set or a match in Houston" thread, let's also have one for the big underdogs in the Davis Cup final

Sure, that goes without saying, we all know that Fish completely, thoroughly, totally, fully, entirely sucks sooooooooo much on clay... and ditto Roddick, of course!!!!!


So what will be the best excuses if Fish and/or Roddick win a set or even a match ( ) off the Spanish team?


I'll start right away...

- Carlos choked as usual
- The Spaniards have been inhibited playing in front of this 26000 people home crowd, the pressure to win was too big on them
- it was clear that Ferrero is going to lose a set/a match because he had poor results over the whole year
- Ferrero's back started acting up again
- ....


continue the list... and I expect you to be creative... even though, similiarly to Gaudio's performance in Houston, we probably won't need any at all...

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: Best excuses if Roddick and/or Fish win a set or a match in Sevilla

A thypical one would be - Fish played the match of his life...

I don't think -hopfeully- we'll need to use them, as you say, though


Favourite players:

Nadal ~ Fish [Fisho] ~ Ferrero [Juancho] ~ Hewitt [Llautó] ~ Nalbandian

I don't think "Fish played the match of his life" is an excuse, is it? I mean that would be an actual compliment to Mardy

It is meant to be the excuse the Spaniards would use.

no, I think the Spanish team is above using excuses. I think it's folks here at MTF she was referring to

Oh Thanks. Then my excuse is:

''I NEVER said that the Duck would DEFINITELY not win a set. I just said that hell would freeze over first. You Duck fans are always picking fights on these boards, you are all scumbags, you are all dumb, you should all be banned. GWH was right.''

You've apparently never read a Ferrero post match comment before.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Roddick amazingly really has taking to this surface and crowd like a duck to water
Roddick has ducked all the pressure form the Spanish to win this set
Surprisingly Mardy hasn't looked like a Fish out of water
The Spanaird is playing like a Mardy no risks

Good excuses IMO

Ferrero's new Head raquect didn't work. "The raquect failed me. I'm going to switch to Babolat, like Andy. Look what he did today"

"Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another" .. Madonna

Drooling after Schuettler, Bolelli, Volandri, Starace (short haired version), ToJo, Tursunov, Alves, Petzschner, Simon, Qureshi, Steve Johnson
