Re: The "Maybe Andy Can Learn from the WINNER SWIMMERS before the USO" Summer HC Thre

They could have, but people were leaving so it would have gone flat.

Still really pleased about this win for him. Very pleased.

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 went to bed with a smile on my face and I woke up with a smile on my face. You'd think it was MY birthday.

*edit*

Adding photos.

Re: The "Maybe Andy Can Learn from the WINNER SWIMMERS before the USO" Summer HC Thre

I really enjoyed that, even the first set, and not just because I'm a Gulbis fan.

It was exactly the sort of lesson Andy needed to expose what a lightweight he's become. Ernie basically reminded him how a powerful aggressive game is suppose to be played. In the end I think it did rub off a little on Andy's game. He was a little more aggressive and used the pace he was being fed.

Also unlike most players Ernie didn't mind playing at the fast pace. In fact he was often up out of the chair (after the change of ends) at the same time as Andy, just as enthusiastic to get going. It was fun to watch. I think that was one of the things that helped Andy. Unlike most opponents, Ernie never tried to slow things down to make Andy struggle to find a rhythm.

Re: The "Maybe Andy Can Learn from the WINNER SWIMMERS before the USO" Summer HC Thre

Thanks for the photos Deb. Brooke is cute, I really don't understand when other women insult her looks (okay, not women, childish Roddick fans). She may not be classically model beautiful, but her face has personality. She's such a tomboy/sports fan, no wonder they are engaged.

Yeah, still in the after match glow. All is right with the world today.

I'd love to see exactly how beautiful some of her critics are. She is definitely very pretty.

All your messages have been so happy and cute today Fee! I wish I'd seen the rest of the match, I only saw the bit where he was losing so I feel more relief than anything!

Re: The "Maybe Andy Can Learn from the WINNER SWIMMERS before the USO" Summer HC Thre

I love Brooklyn, she's adorable. I like that she's not there for the attention and in fact doesn't like it at all. She was cute with Doug late in the match last night, you could tell how nervous they were. Anyone who finds anything bad to say about Brooke is just a jealous immature bitch as far as i'm concerned

Re: The "Maybe Andy Can Learn from the WINNER SWIMMERS before the USO" Summer HC Thre

Count me in as a Brooke fan. She and Doug were funny the way they were giggling and goofing during Andy's match. I've had to ban several people from my blog because they kept posting really rude comments about her. I think she's great for Andy, she's made him grow up some, she helps ground him (not that he wasn't already grounded but still...), and I like that she's not a classic beauty but more a girl next door beauty.

I just know that when they get married they're going to have kids right away. The pitter patter of little baby ducklings.

"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."

Deb! I'm glad I think Brooklyn's pretty or I'd be scared to come by here.



In other sad news, I will not be able to watch Andy's match tomorrow if he's on third. But, maybe it will be better for my heart.
