RODDICK POST MATCH INTERVIEW

Andy Roddick's post match interview after beating his friend Mardy Fish:


Q. How did you feel today?

ANDY RODDICK: I feel pretty good. My goal was to you know, Mardy is an attacking playing player, and if he was going to attack make him do it from deep in the court, and I was able to do that. You know, I played pretty solid.

Q. How much time have you had on clay for the last couple weeks?

ANDY RODDICK: I mean, I've been training at home, but it is never really the same as an actual tournament atmosphere, especially coming from American clay courts trying to practice and coming over here. It's a little bit different. So, you know, it's good to be able to get through the first one so at least you're getting some matches in.

Q. Apparently there's been some discussion in the Spanish camp about where they're going to play the Davis Cup: Madrid or down by the coast. You guys have any preference about that?
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I hadn't really been following, to be honest. I mean, it's three or four months away, so... There's a lot of the big events between now and then to be honest, so it's not something I think about daily. I'm sure wherever it is it's going to be fine. It's always nice when there's interest. I heard something like ten cities actually bid on it, you know. So any time there's that kind of, you know, attention drawn to tennis and that excitement it's not going to be a bad thing.

Q. What's the thing you like the most on clay, and which of the thing you dislike the most on clay?
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I mean, I enjoy the challenge of clay. It's obviously probably my toughest surface, so, you know, that makes the wins that I do get that much more satisfying. What do I dislike? Obviously it's slower. It takes away a lot of my weapons which isn't fun, but that also plays into the first answer I gave you.

Q. Sam was saying in Monte Carlo that he found his serve could go through the surface and he enjoyed that, and he had more time to set himself up for his shots. Were you surprised that he did well in Monte Carlo first visit, and does any of that relate to you?
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I mean, I think we're all surprised that he did that well. You know, as far as he has some bigger swings than I do. He doesn't really play in center court as much, so that probably makes sense. He has pretty loose strokes and big windups. As far as having more time, that would make sense for him. I don't really think we're outside of serving the ball hard, I don't really think we're that similar was as far as the way we play.

Q. You were saying the other day that you're prepared to stay over here the whole time through the French. In past years you've gone home between. What's different this year as far as your schedule?

ANDY RODDICK: You know, yeah.

Q. That's it?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah.

Q. Usually you go home between the two?

ANDY RODDICK: I have sometimes in the past; sometimes I've stayed. I've done each. But I'm here and I'm scheduled to play Hamburg. After that I'm scheduled to play Dusseldorf as well. I left that week open before, so, yeah.

Q. Maybe just putting a little more into the clay court season this year?

ANDY RODDICK: Just hanging out, man.

I didn't see the match but it looks like a solid start for Andy, which is good because he hasn't had any match play on clay at all for weeks.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

First Outing On Clay

Posted By Andyroddick.com Staff On 6th May 2008 @ 17:07 In Coach's Corner | Comments Disabled

Andy played well in his first outing on clay this year. He hit his forehand well and did a great job of forcing Mardy to go for low percentage shots. Andy has the day off tomorrow, and we will continue to get more comfortable on the clay.

Yeah, everyone has to, yeah, overuse this word in their posts until, yeah, andy does another, yeah, interview. Yeah.

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.
