Thumbs down Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

My family and I recently came back from the Toronto TMS where we were fortunate enough to meet all the players. I have to say that I was quite disappointed at how cocky Andy Roddick has become. I remember first seeing him in person two years ago when he was still a rookie. At that time I was absolutely in awe of him, he was great with the fans and took time to sign autographs for everyone. However, this time around things were a little different. Although I cannot deny that Roddick is a true entertainer, I must say that he has become quite full of himself off-court. I watched him practice and was surprised to see how many fans he left wanting autographs and pictures.
No wonder Roger Federer is #1, he remains as humble as he used to be before climbing up the ranking. Roger has the same number of fans (if not more) and he always manages to sign a lot more autographs than Roddick does. Roger also makes eye contact with the fans. Therefore, I encourage fans to approach him if they get a chance because he is 'da man.'

Federer vs. Roddick singles record: 7-1
Go Roger!!!!! Take the US Open title away from Andy just like you did in Toronto!!!!!!!!

Really, you should post this in the General Messages forum, and then there will be a wider range of opinions, than what you would get here, plus it's inviting a negative reaction by posting this here, whether you want this or not.

This is the Duck forum, and let them congregate in peace.

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

It is sad to know for me as Andy fan.
I have heard some people who met Roger said same thing like he is humble and has eye contact with fans. Andy is not so much.

I have never seen him so I can't say anything absolute certainty, but thinking about Andy's looks, I think he gets more attention from teen girls than Roger, some girls are too aggressive (rip his shirts, etc) and he seems to try to escape from dangerous fans..lol

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

Someone here (deb or mani, not sure who) said once that Andy had said: "It's hard to please everyone cos if you got 400 people waiting for your autograph and you spend an hour signing 200 you still have 200 unpleased people."

You should take on count the fact that in 2002 or 2001 when you first met him he had probably half of the fans the now has. That's why some not-that-high-ranked players seem to be much more nicer... because they might not have as many fans and the high ranked have so it's easier to talk to the fans and sign everything.

And even if Roger is #1 I'm pretty sure Andy has more fans. Specially 'groupies' that might not even know anything about tennis but they still go meet him just because he's a hot piece of ass (which Fed certainly isn't )

Anyway... I know I shouldn't be feeding trolls but poor them, I dont want them to starve

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

This gives me a chance to post a different troll sign.



Nishy, I would take this latest trolls' words with a grain of salt. Andy himself said that you can't please everybody. You could sign autographs all day long and hundreds of fans would still walk away disappointed.

And if it makes you feel any better, I've heard a lot of nasty rumors about Roger and his lack of fan-friendliness but it's not worth repeating because chances are, those are rumors spread by haters just like this one about Andy was.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

The thing people don't understand sometimes is that Andy is way bigger than he was two years ago. And now, of course, it may appear like he "doesn't care" about his fans anymore. I don't think that at all, I think he's just trying to "escape from dangerous fans" (as said by Nishy ). Of course, I'm sad for you gogo_guga that you think of him like that now, but think about it, you can't really say he's cocky if you didn't even talk to him. He didn't say anything rude to you or anything, so maybe you're just really disappointed as how "paranoid" he was

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

yes u are totally right roddickbabe10-- he even said somewhere (i dont remember where though...) that he would like to sign everyone's autograph and take a picture with everyone, but as much as he may want to, its just not possible.

Re: Andy is sooooooooo cocky!!!!!:(

Andy always signs some autographs after he loses. I see very few players that sign after a loss.

Goodness knows Agassi doesn't.
