Re: Yay French Federation, You Got Exactly What You Wanted. Nice Try Anyway, Andy.

I watched the match up to 2-3 in the third set. Midway through the second set, Andy told the umpire and the referee that he could not see. He was actually pretty composed about it. The referee said that they would not go past 9:30, but they did.

Monfils was continuously jacking up the crowds with his hand raising to increase the noise. I do hope that he plays an American at night at the US Open. I would like to see the NY crowds take a crack at him.

Notwithstanding the scoreline, I actually thought that Andy played fairly well. It just seems like Monfils was on fire. That said, I hope Federer crushes him (and I cannot stand Federer).

Andy should still take away a lot of positives from this French Open. He played his matches better and smarter than any previous time.

Sucks, but wasn't unexpected, esp. considering how much the tournament people pulled to make it the best for Monfils. Still, he reached the goal he had set out for here at least and I'm quite hopeful for the grass season. Andy.

And I'm not even gonna bother with GM on the match. I'm sure they're all bashing Andy happily.

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

I thought the match should have been suspended after two sets. Andy would compose himself for Monfils' service games, then lose composure in his service games in the third set. I hope Andy draws Monfils at USO and has a night match. Welcome to the jungle Monfils.
Overall, I'm pleased with the result. Andy just needs to learn to take the calmness to the court when people try to get under his skin.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

DAVIS CUP CHAMPS FOR 2007!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO USA!!!!!!!

His press conference is on the rg website. He was actually pretty composed and said that at this point his opinion was irrelevant. He gave Monfils his due and was very complimentary - now he is on his way to London and grass whoo hooooo!

In this forum, nobody should. Andy played well, hit the ball well, returned well, served well...if he plays like that he'll surely be a factor at Wimbledon. I just hope he's on Nadal's side of the draw.

This French Open is shit, no?



*edit*

Found this over at ESPN chat:

Kim, PA: Did Roddick mail it in yesterday?

Greg Garber: (12:37 PM ET) Kim: There were times when it looked to me like he wasn't trying his hardest. Now, remember, Roddick is one of the most earnest, hard-working guys to the Tour and unlike some guys (who shall remain nameless) have a reputation for tanking. Roddick was angry at the way he was playing and unhappy with the pro-Monfils crowd and the umpire who kept the match going into semi-darkness. I was surprised he was as civil as he was in his post-match press conference.

This video shows highlights of Andy arguing with Enric Molina.

"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."

Andy sounded really positive in his last tweet
