nice stats Duckfan/thread-starter

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: Best players coming back from a 0-2 set deficit / losing after a 2-0 set lead

Just wanted to remind of Albert Costa 3 times comeback from 0-2 RG 2003:

R128 Roitman, Sergio (ARG ) 181 6-7(3) 2-6 7-5 6-2 6-2
R32 Lapentti, Nicolas (ECU ) 66 4-6 4-6 6-3 6-4 6-4
Q Robredo, Tommy (ESP ) 20 2-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Suprise Superise Becker at the top he was such a good strong and confident player.

I'm not afraid of anyone, but sometimes I'm afraid of myself.
-Justine Henin-Hardenne-

Life it's a great game.
-Andre Agassi-

He was too good. I would suggest to his next opponent that he doesn't look to me for advice.

Aaron

I think I was at all those matches at the USO. But the best was when he booted Andre in the 1st rd, 1st match on Louie in '91. Not a 5 setter, but my fav, nonetheless.

I don't like Becker very much and never have. He used to be a slow starter unless he was playing indoors and his arrogance that he wouldn't be beaten helped him in these times.
I loved Becker but you are right about his arrogance. He could've been a much greater player if he had put in more work off the court. Yes, other than indoors and grass, always, always the slow start.

I will always remember his comback against Derrick Rostagno in the U.S. Open as I was on the grounds that day but not at his match. He also had great comebacks against Andre Agassi in Davis Cup down 6-5 in the third and against Courier in an indoor tourny in Brussels I believe winning 7-6, 7-6, and 7-5 int he final sets.

In a lot of other matches, Becker didn't have much of a fighting spirit. Against McEnroe (both of them) in Australia, against Haarhuis at the USO and some others.

Do you remember how out of shape AA was in that match? His stomach fat was hanging out of his shirt. It was truly unbelieveable.

I was happy to see Todd Martin tied for second. I know about his comebacks against Rusedski and Moya, but I can't think of any others. Where can you find the list?
