Cool Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)



Who or what will be standing in Andy's way during the Euro indoor season? Last year his results were OK (two semi's), but he's never won on carpet. What gives?

2003
TMS Madrid, Spain
Massu took Andy out in Round 16

Basel, Switzerland
Fat David knocked Andy out in the semis 5-7 5-7

TMS Paris, France
Tim Henman also rubbed Andy out in the semis 6-7(4) 6-7(7)

This year, he's adding Thailand to the carpet (he's never been here, has he?) and instead of Basel, he's going to Stockholm to try to steal Mardy's title away from him.

So how do his chances look this year? Think he can pick up any titles?

"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: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

He certainly should be able to win one of the 4 tournaments he's playing. I don't see him winning in Thailand b/c the field is real strong and he'll be way jet-lagged but he could certainly pick up either of the two TMS tourneys or Stockholm.

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

I think he can win at least one title. I'm hoping he still goes to the Thai open. He might not the way he is serving against Skrypko.

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

he's gonna go to Thailand, even PMac was saying that he might not play this dead rubber b/c of his trip. If he were to pull out now then serious :retard: problems

Andy's game should be pefectly suited for quick indoor courts. I see no reason why he shouldn't have a strong indoor season. But that doesn't mean he WILL have a strong indoor season...

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

He's got to learn how to play more flat off his forehand when playing on carpet. At the USO, he was hitting more flat shots than I've ever seen him hit, so it's a good sign. Don't know how he'll do during the indoor swing, it's all up to him.

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

i think andy should be able to win one of the tournaments. the thailand one is probably not the one, for the reasons you guys have already said, i dont need to post them again. but at least andy should be able to make the transistion to the indoor season and get in some good matches.

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

Andy should be able to pick up any of the four tournaments he will be playing in, and he has no reason not to.

Big fat mean Andy Don't take away Mardy's tournament in Stockholm just because he got a medal and you didn't

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

Why wouldn't Mardy go to Stockholm to defend his title?

Re: Munching the carpet (Euro indoor season)

I'm sure Mardy was just PAID more to go to St. Petersburg. He's not taking that week off or anything, he just decided to play somewhere else. It happens all the time - like Andy is playing Stockholm instead of Basel which he had played for three years. It's all $$$$$$$$ lol
