I was going through some old tapes the other day, and came across the one of Andy vs Nalbandian at the 2003 USO. I want THAT forehand back, hell he just let that thing rip. I miss it

How so? granted it was his first match of the year but his match against Ljubicic was hardly "as he needed to play" - it was just as uninspiring as any other Andy match of late

San Jose Once Again
Posted By Andyroddick.com Staff On 20th February 2008 @ 14:30 In Spreen Says | Comments Disabled
On to San Jose. After a successful Davis Cup Tie in Austria and a week off, we have arrived in San Jose. Nice to play here in the US for most of the next couple of months. Besides a trip to Dubai we will be playing here in the states through the first couple of weeks of April. Always nice to have shorter trips and it is also nice to not be fighting jet-lag. I have made many trips here to San Jose and it really is a good thing that it is an indoor tournament because this time of year it always seems to be raining here. Andy is getting ready for his first round match here and we are looking forward to a good week.

Oh Dougie, faulty memory. It has rarely rained in San Jose for the last five years. This week is one of the wettest in a while. tsk tsk.

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.

I'm not ready to be entirely optimistic that this won't all go wrong yet but winning the first set in 22 minutes and only dropping one point on his serve is a good start for Andy.

if Nishikori even plays 2/3 as well as he played against James on Sunday, Andy will lose, no doubt. This kid Nishikori has serious talent, he comes to the net and he goes for his shots and Andy's passive play will fall right into Nishikori's hands - even James said his problem on Sunday was playing too passively. and "passive" for James is still way more aggressive than Andy's been lately, so, 2nd round upset loss coming right up tomorrow night

At least I have no expectations, so no stress if I follow it

Why are my favorite tennis players all trying to piss me off this week?

Please Andy, be BamBam tomorrow. Please.

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.

Re: The "Let's Just Hope He's Still in the top 10 When it's Over" Spring HC Season Th

As I am Japanese, I have mix feeling about next match against Kei Nishikori. I am glad Kei won first ATP title last week and that is 16 years since Shuzo Matsuoka won ATP title in 1992.

But I am Andy fan and I want Andy to show he was No.1 in the world and to win this match. Some Japanese fan are very excited upset coming tomorrow but I am kind a scared.

Good luck Andy!
