Can't wait to see Andre back on court

I think he will prove himself to be my name.

Stella Artois is so open this year it's gonna kick ass. Andre is gonna kick ass. I hope Roddick doesn't have a premature ejaculation moment on seeing the green stuff.

Anyway, back Andre now at 33/1 to win the tournament.

Re: Can't wait to see Andre back on court

Same here...I thought he would skip queens and go straight to wimbledon so to have him fit and healthy at queens is a real treat. Everytime he steps on court you just get that special kind of feeling! Just a shame he has to play someone like henman in the first round - hardly an ideal match to say the least. Apparently he has been looking really strong in practice with the boiling hot weather helping his back no doubt.

As far as Roddicks concerned he has a lot of points to defend which is going to be very difficult considering he's been playing crap for months now. Even though its on grass im not expecting him to be the force he was in previous years during the grass season.

Re: Can't wait to see Andre back on court

also looking forward to watching Andre come back, despite that he's playing Henman..
great match and not long to go infact, 2nd match on centre court tomorrow so i'll sit back and enjoy it and hope Henman wins.

Re: Can't wait to see Andre back on court

Really excited to see him play on grass again.

At this point in his life, it may be a surface that accentuates his strengths (few would have said this early in his career). He can keep points short and hit winners rather than having to grind. His transition and net game, while certainly not at the level of the great serve-volleyers, is also smarter than it used to be. It was a shame that he had to miss the last two Wimbledons.

Last of the moon-and-volley specialists.

I believe in luck. How else can you explain the success of those you don't like? ---Jean Cocteau

How old is Agassi, betterthanhenman? What do you think, can someone in that age play Wimbledon?

Are you a real person?

Can reach the US Open final at 35, but can't play Wimbledon at 36? Good point you make.

Re: Can't wait to see Andre back on court

As much as I like Agassi and enjoy seeing him play...I hope he chooses to put a winning return on hold for at least another week

That was quite a mirracle and I still have problems believing it. To play Wimbledon in 36 and without any recent match play, that is even harder.

Re: Can't wait to see Andre back on court

Will be good to see him back if it is, as we assume, the last time for him.

Will also be nice to see some different faces come to the fore after 2 months of clay - Roddick, Hewitt, Agassi, Henman, Blake, Ancic - step forward please - it's your turn now
