Re: Spring Hardcourts

Something about Indian Wells brings out the silly side of Andy. And I'm glad he and Novak have gotten past that awkwardness and are good friends now. Is Andy following Nole on twitter yet?

Roddick Jokes Around In Press Conference

http://www.10sballs.com/2011/03/11/r...ss-conference/

Andy Roddick played fun with the reporters and Novak Djokovic at a press conference earlier today. When asked what he thought Djokovic was saying about his win streak (who had just completed an interview and was in the adjacent room), he claimed that he thinks Charlie Sheen and Djokovic are both talking about “winning.”

The fun didn’t stop there, as a followup question was posed about Djokovic, Roddick declined to answer until the Novak had left. However, moments later, Novak appeared from the separate room with Roddick rushing him out, claiming, “they are asking me questions about you!”

Living up to his name, the “Joker” shouted back to Andy and the crowd of reporters, “Follow me on Twitter!” To which Roddick, retorted, “but you don’t say anything funny!”

The entire room was erupting with laughter, and his playfulness continued throughout the session. A couple questions were posed asking Andy to talk about his zest, but lacking a clear definition of zest, Roddick didn’t have a response.

If every press conference was that fun, Desert Rat might have a new career.


Andy Roddick Indian Wells Interview: Novak Never Says Anything Funny on Twitter

http://www.tennis-x.com/xblog/2011-03-12/6550.php

Q. Where do you think Novak is right now?
ANDY RODDICK: He’s in that room. (Laughter.)

Q. What’s he talking about?
ANDY RODDICK: Right there.

Q. Just talk about his year a little bit. He hasn’t lost a match since London.
ANDY RODDICK: I don’t know. I think him and Charlie Sheen are just talking about winning, you know. No, really.

Q. Charlie Sheen is still talking. You’ve known him a long time. You’ve played against him.
ANDY RODDICK: Get out of here because they’re asking me a question about you. This is awkward.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Follow me on Twitter.
ANDY RODDICK: You never say anything funny.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: You don’t like my tweets?

"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: Spring Hardcourts

That is hysterical. Still want more Andy-Andy-Novak action, two clowns and the dry wit. They could take that on the road.

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.

Re: Spring Hardcourts

Good match, can't deny it. Hope he can get through Gasquet. Richard looked good vs Mezer, it is going to be tough.

Btw, why there are no pictures posted here anymore?

Re: Spring Hardcourts

i thought the match against john would be more difficult, but he just kind of fell apart and looked defeated in the second set of what i saw.

better stay pumped and have his head on straight against gasquet.

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

Re: Spring Hardcourts

So, I gues with this performance Andy blew his chances for Wimbledon. He surely is going to be out of top 10 after Miami. After that is the clay season, he can't gain many points, and he is going to be seeded 12-13 or something at Wimbledon, which means one of top 4 in 4rd round. Bad things will happen.

Re: Spring Hardcourts

Gasquet was on a blinder last night.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Let's be honest: it was going to be nearly impossible for him to duplicate last year anyway. He was always going to have an uphill battle.
