Re: The "Never Mind Andy, Stay on your Honeymoon til Queen's" Clay Season Thread

Only teens and 20-year-old people who just watched him the last 4 years would be SHOCKED by this behavior.

Lucky Andy? When is his life lucky and tennis situation lucky?

He never cared about tennis longevity and greatness. We all know that his clueless, selfish family would NEVER intervene. Did you think Brooklyn married him because she was sure that love will remain the same, 10 years down the line?

You're stepping back into teenyland.
"Federer Teenybopper" Fumy, you said Federer was in horrible form against Andy last year.

I wish Monte Carlo was still mandatory. That way he would only be able to skip one without having to miss one of the HC masters series and so he might actually play a full clay season!

sad but true! he'd probably just skip one of the HC MS willingly to avoid playing on clay.

sooo..... turns out Andy never had Rome on his calendar, and yeah, it was mandatory so he had to enter it, then withdraw as late as he could. He is still on his honeymoon.

I agree, he should have moved the wedding up a week since he knew he was going to skip Monte Carlo, that way he would still have made it to Rome and kept some points on the books. Oh well.

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.

Re: The "Never Mind Andy, Stay on your Honeymoon til Queen's" Clay Season Thread

His brothers and mother absolutely enjoy his charity and Davis Cup appearances. They get to participate; sometimes they get the media's profuse praise (Andy got ridicule).

They were invited to his activities with no restrictions by Andy, obviously. It interfered with his game and attitude during Federer's success years.
They avoid thinking about breaking a rule (tennis) and U.S. Law (Divorce Court).
John attempted to coach Andy to find out what could happen as the coach, not because he wanted Andy's best tennis, fitness and mind strength. He laughed on TV when Andy barely moved in the Wimbledon quarterfinal and hated to fight again with Federer.
John's tennis academy is hardly a success
.
Lawrence didn't spend time with his daughter but his mother had his daughter at Andy's Cincinnati match.

His schedule is all about exhibitions and sudden plane trips to tournaments because he feels guilty. Thanks to Agassi and his mom's incessant reminder "Don't regret life without charity".

Blake always plays Davis C., not because he wins, but because he's awarded for Andy's work and wins. Do you believe Captain McEnroe gives much value to Andy's abilities? He wasn't even sure that Andy's fitness did anything for his footwork and confidence.
Andy failures against Sampras, Agassi, Hewitt, Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Gasquet, Ferrer, Kohlshreiber, Blake, Gonzalez, etc. made him feel no anger. He told Chris Russo "tennis is more than talent. Roddick has the SERVE. He would have 1 more Slam if Federer wasn't here...." I didn't realize that no one else was Andy's opponent. There were no quitting in Australia, French Open, mental quitting, injury, no awful line calls, and no lethally bad coaching!?
John Mc and Tracy Austin verbally excreted:
Andy should admit he couldn't ever have Djokovic's talent and weapons. And Andy is supposedly working extremely hard with nothing but a serve and many players have no problem surpassing Andy's One other shot: Forehand.
Well, at least Regis Philbin, Agassi...& Sampras agree with them. Cry for them...

I'll give you 25 cents if you can go for seven days without mentioning Andy's family in any of your posts.

Or not honeymoon immediately after the wedding. Lots of people have delayed honeymoons. A wedding day is a big deal, it's easy for us to say, oh just move it up a week, but he should've gotten married whenever he wanted. but I don't see a need to take what's clearly a pretty long honeymoon at this point in the season. I know, the tennis schedule doesn't make it easy. And I don't think what Roger did was necessarily a good idea. It's just particularly crappy for Andy b/c it seems that this is/was probably his best chance of making the 2nd week at RG, but with one tourney preparation and what's clearly going to have been a pretty extended break from even picking up a racquet at all, let alone merely getting some solid work in with Larry practicing on clay, it's now pretty hard to see him having a good result. That's why it's disappointing but again, he clearly doesn't care as much as 1) he has pretended to and 2) we seem to care.

Bonus: Sharing the same anniversary, Andy, Brooklyn, Roger and Mirka could've then been able to make many happy celebrations together for years to come. Think of the bond!

Maybe there was something on Brooke's schedule that prevented it?

"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."

He thought he was winning Davis Cup after November.
Marriage and bedtime can't happen in December. She must pose in her warm birthday suit... Snow Magazine.
Life is long to Andy. Davydenko loves winning and trained for tennis on his honeymoon day....he'll never understand the pain Andy and his sweet relatives endure. Unending days in the dangerous war zone called the kitchen.
