Re: The "Isn't it already the off season?!" fall season thread

Thanks for all the photos and videos. That's a bad scoreline playing someone like Evans but at least he won. David Ferrer was not able to recover from his jetlag/DC matches and lost to Sela so I guess it's all good.

What does Andy need to do now to stay in the hunt for Shanghai? What happens if the Del Pony Express turns into Indoor God and starts winning everything?

Related note: how the heck did Stan sneak into the top ten?

"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."

Re: The "Isn't it already the off season?!" fall season thread

Yeah I know but it's like a delayed reaction with me. Maybe I should have said "How the heck did Stan manage to stay in the top ten this long?" He's almost like another Davydenko.

few highlights in the ATP video http://www.atptennis.com/en/multimed...ault_video.asp you can see his nice set point and match point and a very short interview

and for the Chinese-speakers here is Andy's press conference http://www.chinaopen.com.cn/news/200.../1942518.shtml

I think the wedding was planned long before Andy committed to the Beijing tournament

Re: The "Isn't it already the off season?!" fall season thread

well Andy certainly seemed to come out on top of all of the DC players. nice to see a win, even if it might not have been the best.

Thanks for all the photos, much appreciated as usual.

I almost shed a tear. Andy, if not for the sake of your tennis, at least find a coach so Doug has someone to talk to!
