Re: The Rain Haters thread

i mean, if roddick was scheduled to play first initially i would understand their choice! but why do they give him priority when he wasnt scheduled first before?

Re: The Rain Haters thread

as boris said during wimbledon this is the wimbledon semi final, not the andy roddick show! and this statement is the same for what has happened today, its not the andy roddick show at toronto

Re: The Rain Haters thread

this changed schedule is not fair for both jonas and jiri, they will have to play 2 matches tomorrow and they are not exactly young

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I understand it's very unfair for Coria and Hewitt that they were scheduled to play before Roddick, but I understand this decision, after all, Roddick did win the tournament last year...

Re: The Rain Haters thread

I think it's so funny to notice how some people tend to see in every change an advantage for a player they obviously hate/dislike/can't stand and how they are complaining about it

"awwwww *cry* they changed the schedule *cry* everything favors Roddick now *cry* everything is rigged for Roddick's advantage *cry*"

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

LOL. You should've heard them last year when all the mouth-breathing Roddick haters were working themselves into a frenzy when it rained at USO and they blamed Roddick's eventual win on everything from rigged shot spots to El Nino to Al Capone's grave being robbed.

I can't wait to see what they come up with this year.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: The Rain Haters thread

Well it's irrelevant anyway as Andy's match was cancelled too. And the way it's looking they'll be lucky to get any play at all tonight. Tomorrow is going to be... ONE. BIG. MESS.
