Roddick out of TMC?

I find it hard to believe that he would announce it so soon, but it says so in this article from Fox Sports.

Source

Quote:
LLEYTON Hewitt remains in doubt for the Tennis Masters Cup in Shanghai and may join world No.3 Andy Roddick on the sidelines.

Hewitt is battling groin and toe injuries while Roddick is nursing a sore back. The season-ending tournament starts on Sunday. Hewitt, twice a Masters champion and beaten in last season's final by Roger Federer, has not played since the Thailand Open in September.

Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Roddick, Hewitt, Andre Agassi, Guillermo Coria and Nikolay Davydenko make up the field with Argentines Gaston Gaudio and David Nalbandian likely to slot in if any of the top eight withdraws.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

Sorry amigo but I think you have misread this! When I read this I got the impression that there is a possibility that both Hewitt and Roddick may have to sit TMS out, not that Andy has already pulled out. This is made clear in the final lines of your quote which includes Roddick as one of the eight man field (for now anyways!!)! Easy mistake to make though! Hoped I have helped clear this up!

Vamos RAFA, FELI y NANDO!!!!!!!

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

I think that sentence was badly written. For the bit that you have bolded, I interpreted the same thing, but it may have been a bad attempt at trying to make headlines dramatic.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

Hell-llooo its foxsports! When have they ever been a reliable source for tennis news?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

I really doubt Andy would skip TMC, unless the back injury is more serious than thought - I don't think anything reliable has been written to tell us exactly what the injury is.

The relevance of this thread wasn't to discuss Ljubicic anyways.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

I hope not, I hope everyone feels fit and healthy to play and it is a good tournament (after so many washout since the U.S.O). The 8 players have all done good this year, and it would be so exciting!

Hewitt has a very good reason for not being there and it is agreeable to see him giving priority to the important things in life.

Andy; who knows how much of a production that injury inParis was? Whether he appears or not depends more on what his media relations and money people tell him to do than on any principled action on his part.

I really doubt Andy is going to TMC. I think the writing is on the wall with that one.

But it's fox sports in Australia and the article was written by Leo Schlink, he tends to have inside information.

But yea, it's a poorly written sentence - he hasn't announced anything yet, but he will have to make his mind up by like tomorrow or so.

It is a poorly constructed sentence, because it does not match with what is written at the end of the article:

"...Argentines Gaston Gaudio and David Nalbandian likely to slot in if any of the top eight withdraws."

Bad grammar. Roddick hasn't made any announcements.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

All they seem to know is that Andy had back pain throughout the Paris Masters - nothing new here.

Re: Roddick out of TMC?

Well, the charity thing he was supposed to be at is tonight, and someone from MTF is going, so I guess whether he shows up there and if he plays will be hints... and here's a better-written article. http://www.eurosport.com/home/pages/...to787005.shtml
