Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

So it looks like Andy's clay season begins and ends at Roland Garros. This is how it should have been all those years.

"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."

Seriously, Tangy! It would be incredibly hilarious if he actually managed to win RG, I mean pigs might fly and all first but you never know....it would be something!

Andy has no pressure whatsoever going to RG. Nobody expects him to win so wouldn't it be great if he won. My God, beating Nadal or Fed in the final.....hahaha. That would be the biggest upset.......

I think if Andy were to win RG, MTF would completely implode.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

I think the world is more likely to end in 2012 than Andy is likely to win RG.. OK, maybe it's about equally likely

Thank you for the reminding. I'm sorry, my fault.

What? You guys don't think he can do it? I think that's the real reason why he's withdrawn. He doesn't want anyone to see his super secret clay court plan to win RG. He wants to slide under the radar and KICK ASS when people least expect it.

That's right Andrew Stephen Roddick: I'm on to you.

And when the daylight's fading we're gonna play in the dark til it's golden again

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

Okay, RA, we need to get you to a spa day. I think Finals are sending you around the bend. Just remember, we are all here to support you in your time of need, just give us a shout.

He'll be a finalist for sure, beating Roger in the semi's, but then he'll lose to Murray in the final. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it.

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.

Andy in Paris WTF! I would have thought he had jetted home to the States for a few days.

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

Maybe he was worried about the volcano which apparently is erupting again?! Imagine if he did come back to the states for a few days and was stuck here because he couldn't get back in time for RG? Oh gosh people in GM would be demanding he be burned at the stake for missing the ENTIRE clay season, it's a good thing he's already in Paris!

Just remember afterall his secret plan is to win the French Open!

Re: The "Nice of you to show up, Andy" clay season thread

why would he go back to states ? he was already having problems with jetlag, going to States for 5-6 days and then back to Europe doesn't make any sense
