What a dumb article. Cliff Drysdale aside, no one calls Andy "A-Rod" anymore.

I wonder if these drug testers would actually show up during his honeymoon.

"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."

I suppose to keep the sport clean this is a necessary evil but isn't it being a bit over zealous as well? Hmmmm.

SAP Video Diary is back, the first video was posted earlier today, nothing much to really say about it. Both Larry and Doug aren't with him (Doug has the week off, getting married, of course, and Larry's off, too). Neither is Dillon. He's only with Ken, massage lady Georgia, and Graham Cross ("who is single and ready to mingle" ).

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

Re: The "OMBG, Andy's Trying to Set the Jet-Lag Record" Spring Indoor/HC Thread

What a lucky SOB tonight.

Tommy's gonna be a lot of trouble, though, probably. Maybe Andy can replicate his last win against him... which was in San Jose, four years ago.

Re: The "OMBG, Andy's Trying to Set the Jet-Lag Record" Spring Indoor/HC Thread

Oh dear what a bad fan am I? I got so caught up in watching Rotterdam (I can actually see the tennis online) that I actually forgot Andy was playing. Oh dear the Tommy I guess be referred to here is Haas? The last time I saw them play live was in Houston and Andy lost and then the next match Haas withdrew (bah).

Re: The "OMBG, Andy's Trying to Set the Jet-Lag Record" Spring Indoor/HC Thread

Andy, please stop losing to Haas. I know he's a bad matchup for you, but still
========================
Two-time defending champion Andy Roddick took an impressive 6-3, 7-6(2) victory over the virus-ridden Ernests Gulbis. The SAP Open decided not to purchase the Hawk-Eye line-calling system, which one official estimates costs between $250,000-$350,000 per week. Roddick thinks it’s worth the investment. After one questionable call in the tiebreak, the steamed American yelled out “Pay for the replay system, you cheap ass!”
BTW: Roddick hit a 150-mph serve, believed to be the fastest in tournament history.

Roddick struggles to quarterfinals at SAP

8 hours ago

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Andy Roddick struggled and James Blake made it look easy as they advanced to the quarterfinals at the SAP Open on Thursday.

Roddick had his hands full as he defeated Ernests Gulbis 6-3, 7-6 (3). Last year, Gulbis gave Roddick trouble at the U.S. Open when he took the first set before the American rallied to win the next three to take the match.

"I guess I started off pretty well," said Roddick. "But I thought he started serving really well in the second set."

Roddick had his hands full with the Latvian, who didn't seem flustered by the hard-serving defending champion. Roddick is trying to win the tournament for a record fourth time.

Roddick used serves clocked at 150, 147, and 142 mph to easily win the first set. But Gulbis almost turned the tables on Roddick in the second set, matching him point for point until the losing the tiebreaker.

Although Gulbis had six double faults, he constantly flustered Roddick with his strong serves and return game. At one point after being aced, Roddick tossed his racket to the side in disbelief.

Roddick's unforced errors gave Gulbis the opportunity he needed to challenge.

It was a little frustrating to not be able to get into a rhythm at all," said Roddick. "And then he started hitting first serves for second serves. If he's making it there isn't much I can do. A lot of the time he plays pretty high-risk so you are kind of at his mercy."

I remember that point, it was Gulbis' first. I thought Andy was gonna lose his rhythm and fumble some after that and go to a third set, but he didn't.

I imagine that's about what Andy's appearance fee is for the tourney, he could be free to donate it to the cause
