Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

This is from the Indy website:

ANDY RODDICK WITHDRAWS DUE TO RIGHT HIP FLEXOR INJURY
INDIANAPOLIS… Wimbledon runner-up and two-time Indianapolis Tennis Championship presented by Lilly champion Andy Roddick, 26, has announced his withdrawal from this year’s tournament. Roddick’s coach Larry Stefanki made the call late today citing a right hip flexor injury that also kept him out of the US Davis Cup match against Croatia.
“We are obviously very disappointed that Andy will not be able to return to Indianapolis, but we support his decision 100 percent to put his health first. We know that some fans have planned their vacations and a night out with friends around Andy’s Tuesday night play and potential to earn his third title on finals weekend, so we can only imagine how disappointed they are also,” said Indianapolis Tennis Championships Tournament Director Kevin Martin.
“On a positive note, however, fans will still be able to see great tennis at the tournament this year and enjoy numerous fan friendly events throughout the week. In addition we are working to secure one additional player into the main draw. Robby Ginepri’s acceptance into our main draw freed up his wildcard. The # 17 player in the world and the second highest ranked American James Blake is our leading candidate.
“This is one of those instances where our tournament must support the decision by Andy and his medical team to do what’s best for Andy and American tennis versus what’s best for Indianapolis. We will look forward to seeing Andy back on the hardcourts very soon and performing at the high level we saw him during Wimbeldon. We wish him a speedy recovery for this hip injury, and of course we hope to see him headlining for us at next year’s Indianapolis Tennis Championships.”
The Indianapolis Tennis Championships, the first tournament in the hardcourt season, will feature several ATP tour veterans, including 2007 Champion Dmitry Tursunov, 2005 Champion Robby Ginepri, Sam Querrey, Taylor Dent, Marcos Baghdatis and many others. This year’s Indianapolis Tennis Championships will be held July 18-26 at the Indianapolis Tennis Center on the campus of IUPUI. Tickets for the Championships can be purchased online at tennisindy.com or by calling 800-622-LOVE.
The Indianapolis Tennis Championships Presented by Lilly is a world-class ATP Tour event held annually in Indianapolis and is a part of the Olympus US Open Series. The event traces its roots back to 1921 and has hosted such notable players as Pete Sampras, Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors, and Andre Agassi. For more information, please visit www.tennisindy.com.

Whyyy... oh well. I hope his hip gets up to par soon enough.

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

Exactly, he's fine, he just hasn't been practicing. That's ok, he deserves it.

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

Now, I think, we will probably see him in Washington. If he plays both Washington and L.A. and the two masters events, that means 4 consecutive tournaments before USO. I think this is high risk to injure himself again...

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

Yeah, probably not too smart.. just a shame b/c indy and LA's fields are so incredibly weak, either should be an easy title win for him

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

You are right. A title would be so good for his confidence, and mood in general, after That final.

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

On the other hand, weak challenger-like fields hold no interest for elite players so even if it means an easy title win for Andy what he really needs (and works best for him) is to face good players, not waste his time beating down the likes of Kunitsyn and Berrer and then re-injure the hip.

I hope he skips Washington too, he should focus on the masters before USO. It's time for the other Americans to step up in these small events (hint to Sammy and Johnny). Andy shouldn't have to carry the entire summer series by himself.

*edit*

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

I'm 100% sure andy's hip is fine. he had the same thing after the 2004 final and ended up having an excellent summer after that. He shouldn't have to carry the tourneys in terms of ticket sales and stuff, but I don't think winning a tournament is ever a bad idea for him, and he's a confidence player so getting on a good roll can't possibly hurt.

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

I think one tournament - L.A or Washington would be fine. Just not to go cold into the masters events.

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

I hope he starts playing again soon. I don't blame him for maybe taking a bit of a break after the final though!
