Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

Yes, like I said, I generally agree... but he surprises us so often (good and bad) it's almost impossible to predict what's best for him at this point

If there is something that is something that is always good - being healthy.

Quick! Somebody be my 100th follower on Twitter.

"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 am sorry I do not remember if Andy played Los Angeles last year. I really thought he only played in Washington. I think you know best. On Andy's website, it does not say anything about Andy playing Los Angeles. Tell me if I am wrong.

Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

This has to be the best excuse I've read yet and of course the UK ragsheets report this story from his Twitter.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/ten...s-postman.html

Sweaty Andy Roddick lost Wimbledon final because he didn't change shirt enough, insists his postman
By ALEX KAY
21st July 2009


Sweaty load: Roddick's mailman told the ace his wet shirts were weighing him down.

Ever since he was edged out so narrowly by Roger Federer in the Wimbledon final, Andy Roddick has been trying to find out why he lost, desperate for some closure, an end to the mental torture he has been suffering.

Was the Swiss mentally tougher than him, was it just a case of bad luck or were the Grand Slam gods conspiring against him?

Well, as the American found out yesterday, all he needed to do to find out the

Sweaty load: Roddick's mailman told the ace his wet shirts were weighing him down real reason for his defeat was ask the postman. Yes, the world No 5's mailman held the answer all along.

'The mailman just knocked on my door,' said Roddick on his Twitter. 'He informed me that the reason I lost the Wimbledon final was because I sweat a lot and don't change my shirt enough during the course of a match and it weighs me down. If I had only known.'

Wise words from the mailman indeed and great news for Roddick, who now knows what he will have to do to win the US Open for the second time in September.

Unless of course he chooses to doubt a man who opened with the line 'I don't know anything about sports or tennis but...'.

But why would he? Nothing else has worked. In fact, Roddick has already set to work on finding himself a new, lighter outfit for Flushing Meadows, which certainly hugs the skin a bit more and should prove the difference if he finds himself opposite Federer come men's final day again.

Although Roddick will no doubt be delighted with the mailman's revelation, his coach, Larry Stefanki, will surely be looking over his shoulder in the next few weeks.

If the change to lycra pays off, Roddick could be turning to his postman for advice in other areas of his game. Who knows, he could be posting new records in the near future with a string of first-class performances.

Let's see if there's another ticket sales spike.
