No they just decided they couldn't hake it with the men anymore so joined up with the ladies, that was always their exit strategy to begin with

Harsh. I know Roddick's forehand isn't what it once was, but still....

With medical advances available to the players you just knew that one day someone desperate enough to win would try it.

They have to be politically correct.

No more than 50% of Stadium matches can be ATP.

Renee Rochus.

"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."

Didn't that happen before I remember reading about the male tennis player who got a sex change in the 80s and tried to play a womens match. I guess they let him play but he/she lost in straight sets to the women's player that they played against...anyone know what I am talking about?

Re: OUCH - Indian Wells Tournement Officials diss Roddick

From Wikipedia.org:

Renée Richards (born Richard Raskind August 19, 1934) is a physician and professional tennis player.

In 1975 she underwent sex reassignment surgery.

In 1976 the United States Tennis Association denied her entrance into the U.S. Open. She challenged the ban, and the New York Supreme Court ruled in her favor in 1977.

Tennis career as Renée Richards

As Renée Richards, she subsequently played from 1977 to 1981, achieving a ranking in the low 20s. [2] She was ranked as high as 20th overall (in February 1979), and her highest ranking at the end of a year was 22nd (in 1977).

Her greatest successes on court were reaching the doubles final at the US Open in 1977, and winning the 35-and-over women's singles. [3] Richards was twice a semi-finalist in mixed doubles (with Ilie Nastase) at the U.S. Open.

Coaching

She later coached Martina Navratilova to two Wimbledon wins.

WOW! That's amazing, I can just imagine if something like this happened today. It wouldn't even be close, the number 300 ranked man would rise quickly to the number 1 on the womens rankings...domination worse than anything imaginable.

I'm not sure I agree - there maybe less testosterone but the way muscles are set up etc must stay the same? Says something that in her 40's she was ranked low 20's

Re: OUCH - Indian Wells Tournement Officials diss Roddick

You're totally welcome.

Fumus, I agree with you about total domination if something like that ever happened again. Look what else I dug up-

Kaarsten Braasch? Who's he? Tennis player from Germany, now retired from playing on the circuit. Known for four things.

# In 1998, he was lounging around at the Australian Open. Williams sisters, then on the up-and-up and full of immense self-belief, announced to anyone in earshot that they believed they were good enough to beat the 200th-ranked player on the men's tour in a practice match. Braasch was within earshot (perhaps smoking his 7th of the day). He was then ranked 203. He volunteered, then went off to train, Braasch style: some golf, some shandies.

Then he played Serena, beat her 6-1. Venus immediately after, beat her 6-2.


I remember reading that he was a CHAIN SMOKER as well!
