well Andy did say that he planned to propose during some "time off" in April, we should've known that that also meant time off from training!

No tennis on my TV until Roland Garros. It's tennis off-season for ALL Americans not just the players.

btw, Thread Goddess (whoever you are ), I disagree with this title "Yay, Let's Just Win 1 Match at RG, k?" Clay Season Thread. Andy has shown us plenty of times that he is capable of winning one measley match at RG, but he has yet to show us that he can get to the QFs which we all know he's perfectly capable of doing if he would set his mind to it. I wish there was some way we could convince him that RG is really Davis Cup.

"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."

Perhaps we can send all of the netheads over there to fool him?

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.

He hasn't won a match at RG in what, 3 years? I think asking for 1 win is good for now

btw, Andy looks like the real shlub now, after James took a late WC into Barcelona. Good one Andy, impressing us as always

Good idea. We'll send the J-Block in for James too, to fool him into thinking he's playing at USO.

Andy's just manipulating his schedule carefully so that he peaks in Dusseldorf. It's all part of his master plan.

I'm half tempted to take my nethead now. Fingers crossed he'll play the days I'm there... and yes, I am going at the start of the week.

Hmm well I don't mean to brag (well yes I do cos I don't do it too often) but we were spoilt all week once again with good tennis from Monte Carlo. Yesterday's final was awesome yet I am confused as why Roger suddenly has these kind of melt downs oh well onwards and upwards.

At this time of year I am always surprised if an American plays on clay but well done to Sammy for beating Gasquet - no mean feat. Hmmm can't wait until Rome which begins next week.

Much as I'm glad to have tennis on my TV, since it doesn't happen often, I don't understand why they can't do a better job at MC. It's so difficult to see the ball and I lost count of the number of times they lost feed.

IMO, the only good thing about the clay season is that the grass season is just around the corner. Guess Andy and I have something in common after all
