Great. He can go shopping in Paris after that.

Federer in the QF?
But Andy's rusty anyway so it's not like he had a chance to go far anyway, I'd rather him to get the bad draws in tournaments he can't really win and the better draws in tournaments he has a good chance to win.

Maybe he'll surprise us! Didn't he almost beat Roger in Madrid last year when he made it to the QF?

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

I am more worried about Montanes, Gulbis or Youzhny than Federer.

Yeah, Montanes just beat Roger, Gulbis is in-form player... He can win a match, but after that...

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

All-American clay final at the Nole Open! Samburger and Johnny are the real deals. It's about time some of the other guys stepped up.

I think Andy will be fine in Madrid. He usually plays very well after a long lay-off, you know he's itching to crack that ball.

"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."

You guys are so funny, at this point to any Roddick fan the draw should be totally meaningless. Minus Federer that is a constant.

He really could lose to anybody
He could also win.

How does he know it's a 24hour virus? It could well be a 12 hour virus or 6 or 48...
I guess Doug knows everything.

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

It's food poisoning (or a severe food allergy), if he means he can't venture far from the bathroom (there's really no such thing as stomach flu or 24 hour virus). He should be okay once it's out of his system but he might feel fatigued from fighting it. Fluids, fluids, fluids, and whatever nutrient dense food he can keep down.

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.
