Done.

Now we have a little piece of the internet to talk about John's deep analysis of Andy's game and other things, like when they talk to him on TV. The game plans are also very interesting.

My second thread ever we'll see how it does it might be redundant.

Re: "He's hitting the ball well" and other deep thoughts

"He needs to hold serve and look for an opportunity to break."

Thanks for that, John.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Only as redundant as his mind seems to be when talking about tennis. It's like he's lost the will to live analyse.

But it doesn't matter. I love thee, Saint Johnne the Chubby until the end of time!

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Duh because he is super coach.

Hold serve and break. Who would have though.

It could be fun to have all John match "observations" in one place. For comparative purposes to see how Andy's game is going. Not to poke fun at him or anything like that.

His thoughts on Andy's whole career would span, what, 16.5 sentences.

All variations of the same thing.

I'd really like to hear John coach from a psychological standpoint he doesn't really strike me as being able to excite the kids.

Re: "He's hitting the ball well" and other deep thoughts

Is there where we're storing all of John's pithy musings?

"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: "He's hitting the ball well" and other deep thoughts

aww, poor John, it must be hard to be forced to write an analysis of every one of Andy's matches aimed at 12 year old girls.

Re: "He's hitting the ball well" and other deep thoughts

It's easy really, he holds his breath for a bit...kills several thousand brain cells, then types away. Easy teenybopper speak everytime!

God forbid he actually talk in depth about tennis. They'd get confused and just carry on uploading topless photos of Andy. That's what being a fan is REALLY about after all, no?

Re: "He's hitting the ball well" and other deep thoughts

*tries doing what sarah said john does*

I h3aRt aNdY!!11111!!!
He hit the ball well and his serving percentage was better.



Your right that really does work. Although I don't think I held my breath long enough it only lasted like 45 seconds.




Have we posted his insight from the final yet?
