Re: Fall tourneys thread

Mark's playing with Andy because Mahesh is injured and it's hard for a doubles specialist to find another decent doubles player on short notice who hasn't already pre-entered with someone else.

Mark tends to play with Americans if Mahesh has a week to week injury or another commitment (Mark played with Mardy Fish in Delray Beach last year and Memphis this year and partnered James Blake in Basel of 2007).

Maybe Mark can trade some volleying tips for some suggestions on how to hit a bigger serve.

Go Knowles, Murray, Hewitt, Ivanovic, Tursunov, Mirnyi, Ancic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Djokovic, Gulbis, Nieminen, Booray and the Bryans!

Thanks for the info Fitz (JMG's playing in Sacto this week, by the way). I saw Mahesh posted something on Twitter about a trip to NYC, figured that might have something to do with it. Hope they are playing again in time for the WTF (I get perverse pleasure typing that acronym).

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.

Yes it did! I woke up with a bit of a sore throat and half my office is sick so I'm trying to do everything to avoid getting sick

Yes, we will have to get together when I get home!

Re: Fall tourneys thread

I really don't have any words, didnt think he would crash out in FIRST match. The racquet certainly suffered too

Have fun Deb!

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

Um, what the fuck? Not prepared after a month off? Really? Maybe you should've gotten there before Sunday?
========================

Defending champs out in Beijing
Oct 6, 2009 1:47 PM| By
China Open defending champions Andy Roddick and Jelena Jankovic were both upset in their opening matches, missing key opportunities to gain points towards their year-end tour championships.

Roddick, the third seed here, stumbled out in straight sets to Polish qualifier Lukasz Kubot, 6-2, 6-4, while China's Peng Shuai defeated the eighth seed Jankovic, 4-6, 7-5, 6-2.

Roddick, ranked sixth in the world, was the first to admit that his centre court effort at the Olympic tennis venue was less than stellar.

"I didn't play well," a sombre Roddick told reporters after the match. "I don't know if I was super-prepared, and it showed. I was trying stuff out there and nothing seemed to be working too well."

Roddick, 27, said he was feeling the fatigue after a long season, with the ATP World Tour Finals in London still six weeks off, and that players needed more of a break.

"I certainly have not been shy about saying that at a certain point, something's got to give, and there has got to be some time to get yourself right physically and mentally," he said.

"And right now, that's just not the case. And you're seeing that with Roger (Federer) and (Andy) Murray being out in Tokyo."

When asked how he would prepare for next week's Shanghai Masters, Roddick replied: "I certainly need to put some time in."

Roddick is currently sixth in the race to London, but has not yet qualified for the event.

"I missed an opportunity here this week. You certainly want to get confirmed into that tournament sooner rather than later," he said.

Then he should pull out rather than embarrass himself against a nobody. But really, after having a whole entire month off, I can't imagine how he could be so "tired" - he's had more breaks this year, long breaks even, than he probably has ever had.

Re: Fall tourneys thread

I'm not surprised. He clearly wasn't ready to play, and his brain was probably still on vacation. It's hard to get excited about the indoor season.

"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."

Except he wants to qualify for London and so far he isn't making a big effort.

He wants to win fantasy football more than he wants to win London.
