Re: Montreal media not disappointed to see Andy leave

Hmmm this sounds very un-Andy to me! I've seen Andy several times after a match signing quite a few autographs, and even after a loss (however this was at Kooyong, not at a 'real tournament'). While he signs a few, he doesn't always have a huge smile on his face; after you win/lose you just want to go and have a rest, but you sign autographs because it's the right thing to do. I hope, and believe the 'speak white' comment is not true/was said as a joke and has been taken out of context because it doesn't sound like something he'd say and it'd be disappointed if he did say it and mean it.

So many people go on about how Andy's a horrible guy in real life, but I'm yet to see any proof of that first hand, so I'll wait until I see it before I believe it, but it's sad that the press in Montreal aren't happy with him. Making enemies it not the best way to go about things!

It was in GM last night.

While I believe that Andy was pissed and blew off signing autographs, I do not believe the "speak white" comment occurred. Furthermore, the article's pejorative use of the term "cowboy" raises a whiff of the snottiness of the Canadian media regarding the USA which undermines its credibility.

Re: Montreal media not disappointed to see Andy leave

Hmmmm I find this strange too I have seen Andy play many times and even when he has lost and not happy he has signed a few. When Rafa lost the other night to Noly he just walked off the court and didn't sign any does that make him bad too? The racket smashing I can believe that is not unusual BUT the "speak white" - what a strange comment. Having spent the weekend in Montreal and my French is not great, I can understand how frustrated u may get when someone comes at you talking in a language you don't understand. However u deal with it and try to adapt perhaps it was in the heat of the moment. May be he was just being his usual jerk self!!!!!

Re: Montreal media not disappointed to see Andy leave

Heehee ya know another day another tornament - a couple of years ago in Toronto Roger lets rip a really rude word and then also he said that his loss to Noly in Monteral was "insignificant" - I actually find that comment insulting to Noly did anyone else take it like that????

Re: Montreal media not disappointed to see Andy leave

"Speak white" is such a wierd expression that it raises doubts for me about the whole report. I can honestly say that, in all my years in Texas, I have never heard that expression.

Re: Montreal media not disappointed to see Andy leave

Parts of the accusations sound like Andy, others really do not.

I do not think Andy smashed the raquet into the wall. More upset than Andy about the loss of the match, the raquet lept to its death, careening into the wall. It must be concluded that it was (another) suicide.

But there must be something exceptionally disturbing about Roddick swearing, because there is a report every time he utters an explicative, followed by a surge of shock and indignation. (alright, maybe not every time, but all to frequently)

I noticed that too. I thought latching on to the term, "insignificant" was quite a dig. But, Roger would never do something like that, it must have been Andy pretending to be Fed.

I'm glad this was moved to the AR forum, now Re or Deb can close it.

Looks like we got our answer. Ten-Isse-Fan clearly has no idea what a tabloid newspaper looks like.


"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."

Le Journal de Montréal is half bullshit and everyone knows that.
It's one of the worst newspapers in Canada.
They like controversial articles that will make people react; basically it's the tabloid version of a serious newspaper. Anyone who denies that clearly never read La Presse or Le Devoir - I don't think any of those newspapers would go writing something like "pour un con à la Andy Roddick". They have no credibility whatsoever.

The article doesn't mention the "speak white" thing - I don't think he said that.

Andy Roddick Maria Sharapova
Novak Djokovic Maria Kirilenko


There is only one thing that separates my cooking and my grandma's. You see when she's in the kitchen it seems like no one is there. When I'm cooking, I let the whole world know! There's flour all over the kitchen counters and ten feet away on the floor, I call everyone to let them know I'm cooking, and I finish that off with a mass email to my friends with a picture of what I cooked.
- Maria still rocks harder than the world. No matter how long it takes before she gets her cute little self back on a tennis court.
