The eyes of the tennis world turn to Basel

In the ephemeral world of sport, monumental events like the Davidoff Swiss Indoors Basel are a rarity and an expression of quality. One year on from its inclusion in the premium class of the ATP World Tour 500 events, the world’s third largest indoor tournament is celebrating its 40th jubilee with an outstanding show, which will have tennis fans all over the world looking forward to Basel with great anticipation. This year’s field will be headed by the sublime Roger Federer (ATP 1), the Serbian title holder Novak Djokovic (ATP 2) and America’s great comeback-king Andy Roddick (ATP 7), three absolute superstars.

...

Roddick – back again after a seven-year break

After a break of seven years, the public will be treated to another chance to see America’s mature comeback-king Andy Roddick. The ace-machine with his cannonball service will be making his appearance under his new coach, Larry Stefanki, eight kilos lighter and correspondingly more successful, after treating himself to a physical course of fresh cell therapy. In Indian Wells Roddick stormed his way into the final, and then went on to take the title two weeks later in Miami at the Players Championships in Florida. The American has fond memories of Basel where he lost to a certain Roger Federer at the quarter-final stage in both 2001 and 2002. In 2003 the Texas star progressed to the semi finals, before being eliminated by the Argentinian David Nalbandian.

PMac: Roddick Grew Tired of USTA Demands
U.S. Captain Warns USTA to Be 'Careful Not to Alienate Top Players'
by Richard Osborn
May 6th, 2010

No one can question Andy Roddick’s allegiance when it comes to Davis Cup. In 23 ties dating back to 2001, the Texan has compiled 31 singles victories for the U.S., second only to Cup stalwart Johnny Mac’s 41. Injuries aside, he’s always been there when his country has come calling.

When, in January, the 27-year-old announced that he would forgo the entire 2010 Davis Cup campaign due to a lingering knee injury, it was clear that it was a difficult, emotional decision.

“I’ll miss it, for sure,” said Roddick at the Australian Open. “It’s been a big part of my career so far. I don’t know if I’ve shut the door on as far as forever goes. We made the decision later on last year. That’s when my knee was still hurt. We didn’t think it was smart to be switching surfaces from hard to clay to hard, time zones, all that. Probably want to do that as few times in the year as we had to. That played a big part.”

Roddick then echoed Andre Agassi (whom Patrick McEnroe pulled back into Davis Cup service in 2005), saying, “I never wanted to be one of these guys who played when it was convenient. I feel like if you commit at the beginning of the year, then you commit. Last thing I’d want to do is have those guys go battle early in the year, then me waltz in and try to play later in the year when they’ve been the ones to get the team to that point.”

But there’s apparently more to the story. In his book “Harcourt Confidential: Tales From Twenty years In the Pro Tennis Trenches” (co-written by Peter Bodo and due in bookstores in June), PMac claims that by the end of 2009, Roddick “was growing a little tired of the extraneous demands of Davis Cup.”

“He was pissed by the way the USTA started nitpicking the players’ phone bills, or insisting that Mike Bryan’s girlfriend take a cab and pay her own way to the airport when she had to leave a tie a day early,” writes McEnroe, whose Davis Cup contract runs through 2011. “It was petty stuff, easily averted, and a transparent attempt by the USTA to show who’s in charge. But the reality is that the USTA has to be careful not to alienate the top players.”

Andy Roddick is a Big FatHead

Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas and Aleksandra Wozniak join the Fathead Team

LIVONIA, Mich., May 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Fathead®, the leading brand in sports and entertainment graphic products, serves up the dramatic likenesses of three of tennis' most popular and captivating professional tennis players in the world. Led by American tennis superstar Andy Roddick, he is joined by top 20 ATP World Tour singles player Tommy Haas, and top WTA Tour Singles Player Aleksandra Wozniak. Fathead is best known for its officially licensed images of professional athletes, animated heroes, entertainment characters, team helmets and logos.

Fathead's new trio of tennis players have each entered into multi-year agreements with Fathead. Roddick and Haas will be the first players on the ATP World Tour to brand Fathead images that capture the players in eye-catching, on-court action. Wozniak is only the second player on the WTA Tour, following Maria Sharapova, to join the Fathead tennis roster.

"We are thrilled to have three of our clients at Lagardere Unlimited join the Fathead tennis roster. With Andy and Tommy being the first ATP players on Tour to have their own Fathead images, I am confident their international popularity will grow the Fathead brand and products amongst the tennis fans and industry tremendously," commented Ken Meyerson, President of Lagardere Unlimited. "I am excited to have a Fathead and hope tennis fans enjoy this fun promotion," added Andy Roddick.

These three accomplished athletes join the Fathead Team with astonishing tennis resumes. Roddick is a current Top 10 ATP World Tour singles player, the 2003 US Open Champion and recent 2010 Sony Ericsson Open Champion. Haas, who has been ranked as high as No. 2 in the world, is known for his powerful single-handed backhand and incredible ability to adapt to his opponent's style or the court surface. Wozniak is Canada's highest-ranked women's singles player in the world, known for her one-two punch of a huge backswing followed by a lightning fast whip-through.

"Today, through an exciting new partnership with Lagardere Unlimited, we are able to provide fans of Andy, Tommy and Aleksandra's with Fatheads of these incredibly popular tennis stars," said Nathan Partington, Fathead VP of Licensing.

A "Fathead" is a big, bold, life-size wall-graphic and has become the "must-have" item for fans of everything! Real. Big. Fathead athletes are approximately 6 feet tall by 3 feet wide and come with cool extra images for added impact and value. Fatheads are designed with a special adhesive backing that enables them to be placed and moved from any surface with no damage. The Roddick, Haas and Wozniak images can be purchased at www.fathead.com.

"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."

Re: 2010 Andy News Thread

Andy will be on the Jonathan Ross show again tomorrow night (Friday, June 4).



Guests: Andy Roddick, LL Cool J, Nina Wadia, Nitin Ganatra, Eminem.
It's that time of year when a token tennis player arrives to talk about, well, tennis. LL Cool J saunters in, two bargain basement Eastenders replace Christina Aguilera and there's music from Eminem.

Also, moniquesourdif twitters this:
Pick up The Daily Telegraph on Saturday you will find a special AEGON British Tennis supplement featuring an interview with Andy Roddick.

Re: 2010 Andy News Thread

A new Andy Roddick Tennis Center being built for underprivileged kids. Maybe this belongs in the JERK thread?
