Re: Roddick Pulls Out of Madrid

James Blake's site said the same thing a few hours before, and that site gets its info directly from James.

why the "hmmmm" ?

Re: Roddick Pulls Out of Madrid

Silly, he could do with some more match practise. And he would be better off hitting a few volleys. Clearly nothing he's doing in training is working

Of course he needs the matches - it's why he played doubles there in the first place, except that they scheduled his doubles after his singles, which is not what he was hoping for obviously. According to Blake's site, he couldn't keep any food down. You cannot play if you haven't eaten properly, it's not worth the risk. He can't help getting sick, that's no one's fault lol

Fair enough. He still needs to ditch Goldfine and hire me though

That's a different story entirely, visit his forum for a less hateful discussion of that than what will surely transpire in GM Of course, Dean can't be blamed for him getting sick

Re: Roddick Pulls Out of Madrid

The knee(s) are a popular excuse these days, it has that air of validity since Safin is sidelined for real with that injury.

I personally love reading the reason "stomach" on draw sheets as the reason for withdraw

But he will be all better for Lyon as they are surely giving him a huge appearance fee for committing to the event months ago.

I blame Dean for everything. He obviously made him eat the wrong food

lol, the ATP site this morning said "sickness" - but then James's site posted what I already described, so yea, it doesn't sound like a made-up excuse, unless Andy is so devious that he would have James email HIS site to post false information (which, I do not think Andy is so clever)

He can also get a Wednesday start which gives him basically 5 days to get better, which should be long enough to recover from anything short of like a full-blown flu.

He may not be playing well right now, but he's not a total idiot - he knows he needs more matches in.

I don't know the story just seems...convienant that's all. If he really is sick then I hope he gets better and can return to play soon! Being an Andy fan has just been really frustrating this year

I understand, believe me I do, but you'll quickly learn that starting a thread here in GM maybe wasn't the best place for that There's plenty of venting going on in the Andy forum
