Wimbleduck--This year is the charm. 05' is alive...

I don't care what happens as long as I see...

1. Andre make the qrts.

2. Henman vs. Federer(preferably with Federer winning, so we can see no. 3)

3. Federer vs. Roddick(preferably with Roddick winning a long match where both play their best)

4.That fat naked streaker dude, interrupts a women’s match again. I watched that last year and it was sooo funny!!(You know he gets paid to do that?. He paints ads on himself and the companies pay him)

5. Robby Ginepri, Mardy Fish, James Blake(is he still alive?), Vince Spadea and Taylor Dent all surpass previous years results and the Americans are all around past round 3.


Good Luck Andy! You are on track for your second Grand Slam!

This one will kinda happen if Guillermo Coria gets past the second round of Wimbledon. I vowed on his forum here to run around Wimbledon all day naked (or as long as it takes for the police to arrest me) if he does gets to the last 32. This promise could turn out to be far worse than the one Mcenroe made at Roland Garros about Henman.

So anyway Go Andy!!! Is it possible Coria will be unseeded and will draw Roddick in round one or two?

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

LOL Good title Skyler

I just want Andy to play well. If he loses I want him to lose to someone who just plays better. I'd like to see him not in Henman's half but I know there's a 50/50 of that happening and if they both make it to the Semis and Tim beats him then that'd be ok

And I want it to be a normal tourney, none of the crazy shit that happened at RG please LOL

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

I would like to see Henman in the final --- the atmosphere would be INSANE.

I also think a Federer/Roddick rematch could be exciting if Andy plays well.

I want Andre to win his first match. (And the six after that too, lol).

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

LOL that makes me feel so much better. If I have to do it, I'll have myself painted with the words menstennisforums.com so the forums can benefit in some free advertising from my moment of stupidity. But I shouldn't worry until after I see the all-important draw, right?

MisterQ: I don't think the atmosphere would match that classic Wimbledon final between Pat and Goran.

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

I agree, it will be hard to match that 2001 final, especially because that was on a Monday, and the crowd was so much more vocal than usual.

would be nice to have a close final like that again

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

I hate how people call Andy the duck as some sort of insult, because I think it is sooooo cute! He's our duck!

GO WIMBLEDUCK!! I really am going to shut-up and have a lotta faith! I want him to win sooooo bad. And he will!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

Re: Wimbleduck--Cheering for Andy at Wimbly!

I reckon a rematch of last year is most probably on the cards and would be the best possible final - hopefully with Roddick performing a lot better!

I love how we hijacked a formerly insulting nickname and turned it into a symbol of empowerment. Aah! The power of Duck Love!

And MisterQ, I agree with you on all three wishes.

"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."

I have yet to make a tourny title, maybe it will yeild some good luck..

I havn't been in the forums as much as I used to, so I kinda feel like I have fallen out of the group! This week, I will be around to cheer Andy for every match!

Well if you look anything like the girl in your avatar, I doubt anyone would mind your streaking.

Coria unseeded? I think not and if he is, I will feel bad for him having to face Andy in the first round.

Good list list Q!

I would like to see Henman win "the big W", that would be great for the sport. If Roddick gets knocked out, I will root for Timmy "The Hustler" Henman.

If Roddick is in the final and it's Henman vs. Federer in the semis. I dk, I guess I am torn, it would just be a "popcorn match" as either way I don't care as long one has to face Roddick in the final.

Even more than Roddick, Henman, or anyone else winning Wimbly, I will be rooting for Andre. If Andre could win another Wimbly that would be even more incredible for the sport than Henman winning Wimbledon, I will be cheering Andre all the way, even if means cheering against Andy!!
