Nah, I'm not going to laugh at you (for that reason). I'm not a dude, and v-cash is now called 'credits'. Its that money under your name, and you get it for posts and threads and stuff (but I'm only teasing you about wanting to make more of it).

3 seconds of biting his lips? That really doesnt mean anything at all (except that he's out of good lip balm and that one tiny piece of dried skin is bothering him). The rest of your paragraph sounds a lot like the other Roddick fans, you really should join us (come on, you know you want to).

Andy Roddick's website is now called andyroddickfoundation.com.

Clearly something's amiss.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: Roddick Fires Roddick, Hires McEnroe

I guess they didn't bother changing the title. Maybe Andy Roddick Foundation is a whole new player? or Maybe Roddick is changing his name. But who cares. I personally think McEnroe can't coach. He just looks like he has no clue all the time.

Re: Roddick Fires Roddick, Hires McEnroe

Sorry to disappoint you cyrusking, looks like no real drama after all *patpat*

In the market
Andy Roddick's brother John will no longer coach him, and the top-ranked U.S. player will look to hire another full-time mentor this fall, according to his agent, Ken Meyerson, who called the parting of the ways "a normal, healthy development. … John's been traveling for 3½ years. He has an academy in San Antonio. He has a life. There were issues after a couple of matches, but there's no animosity.'' Roddick will work with U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe through the Davis Cup semifinals late next month, then assess who's available in the coaching ranks and possibly have a trial run during the indoor season. But Meyerson said he'll urge his client not to rush. "Andy's at a critical juncture of his career, and I don't think he should be piecemealing it,'' he said. "I want him to believe he can win these big events. It's a little trickier now, because he's older, and the old 'you can do it' speech doesn't work anymore.'' Roddick has benefited from the counsel of Tarik Benhabiles, Brad Gilbert and most recently, Jimmy Connors, with whom he split amicably earlier this year. John Roddick is in New York but has not been present at his brother's practice sessions.

Re: Roddick Fires Roddick, Hires McEnroe

See, I told you they would do a statement.

I remember early on when John was named to the position, there were questions about his academy and what the travel would do to him. He invested a lot of money in that academy and it was just beginning to take off when he started to coach Andy full time. I think he was always supposed to be a temporary solution, he just stayed on longer in the end.

PMac is a good temp (and believe me, I know temp work!), but he is not the long term solution that Andy needs. That would be someone with the intials 'Dr.' before his name.

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.

That is all. as for the drama, there's the fairytale
You said John is definitely not in New York. Now you post the article saying he is not in New York. Is that a correction to your other post?

No, I meant that John is not working with him at the USO - this is undisputed at this point and I said so. I'm not going to take your bait with these semantics especially considering its complete irrelevance.

Huh? He's not in NY and he's not in NY?

To answer the question I think you are trying to ask, it's clarification. John had not been seen at Andy's practices, so that much was true. ESPN says he is in NY, but not going to practices. They gave more specific info that fans would not necessarily know just from observation.



More astonishing, to me, is that this statement means that Ted Robinson was right about something when he made that comment last night. I am very surprised.

Have no fear, he and Mac were just discussing their surprise over the fact that Higueras is in Roger's box. They still have pretty much no clue what's going on

I heard that, restored my faith in humanity. Now if only Mac could learn the foot fault rule.
