Thumbs down Getting the hell OUT of Rome!!

They're leaving tomorrow

4.28.2004 -

We are splitting tomorrow for Rome. This will give us a few days to practice on the dirt before the Italian Open kicks off. Any tournament that Andy enters he’s going to be a strong contender and he always has high expectations for the big events. Obviously this is not his favorite surface, so we are getting there early to build up the kid's legs and lungs. He’s had a good week or so of R&R and now it’s time to go grind.

I’m getting pumped up to do some clay court scouting. This will be my first look at Coria on clay. I’ve never seen him live on the dirt. I’ve scouted him on the hard courts but it’s a different ball game on clay, especially since this guy has not lost a match on the dirt since last year's French Open semis. Coria and many of the other clay courters have really stepped up their games on other surfaces, which makes all the events on the tour even tougher to win.

Re: Staying away from the pizza in Rome

Re: Staying away from the pizza in Rome

Naldo, only so much you can mention in the thread, plus we know about Andy's weakness for pizza.

They're gonna be getting there several days before he has to play, I think that's fine.

But I guess he missed the memo about Coria pulling out - he's gonna be pissed lol

Re: Staying away from the pizza in Rome

Naldo, I think they were practicing here before. I don't think Andy's been bumming around til now and then they'll leave! I still think 4 solid days of practice is enough But yes I suppose it's never too early lol

Re: Staying away from the pizza in Rome

Coria isn't even going to BE there.

Which Brad would know if he would bother to read the posts here.
