Question What if Sharapova AND Roddick win the USO?

Everyone knows I like Andy, but Pova is definitely #1 on my "Who to root against" list. I think the USTA, WTA, and ATP would go crazy if their cover boy and girl won this year. Maybe then, they'd live up to the hype following their repspective GS wins. Andy maybe Andy might get some respect.

I won't be very happy on either count, because I can't stand Sharapova and it would be Federer was beaten.

It would be a disaster and the sky would fall in and the earth would boil into space. We must not let that happen.

Re: What if Sharapova AND Roddick win the USO?

Andy Roddick has a good chance, but I expect Maria to lose to Justine despite Justine carrying injuries as she is so determined and will give everything; I think the Australian Open was not like Justine at all and she must of been in a terrible condition to concede so easily.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.

They will be looking at their trophies when they are bonking and then Roddick will say "oh! Pong".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Good one!

If they both win, I think the press would have lots to talk about the next few days, and there would be speculation and all that sh*t. Fine w/ me, as long as Andy wins.

Re: What if Sharapova AND Roddick win the USO?

If they both win, I think that there is a chance that they could make the cover of Sports Illustrated since SI lurves Sharpie and there would be the whole "Amercian tennis is back!" thing. However, if the Texas/Ohio State game today is a doozy (they are the #1 and #2 ranked college football teams) or if there is fantastic game tommorow during the first Sunday of pro-football, either of those could be on the cover instead.

I like a lot of players.

Re: What if Sharapova AND Roddick win the USO?

You stole my line, Clara! SI has always dissed tennis big time. When was the last time a tennis star was on the cover? I was furious Pete didn't make the cover after winning his 7th Wimbledon. Some guy for the Oakland A's on the cover. I can't remember if it was Giambi.

Re: What if Sharapova AND Roddick win the USO?

Do they have a champions ball or anything? Would they take pics together?

That would be two upsets though...I'm hoping for both.

Rooting for: Roddick | Federer | Blake| Fish | Bryans | Gasquet | Querrey | Baghdatis | Verdasco | Kimmy
Missing: Andre | Safin | Women's tennis

Roger Federer is there so the probability of them winning the finals shoud be dismissed
