Andy won. Thank goodness. He needs to send Feli a nice gift basket for that break back. At least he got some tough matchplay in and Lopez was one of the toughest customers around.

Those socks are more Woman's golf than the visor.

Good win today, didn't expect him to pull it off to be honest. I hope it's okay if I post here, i mainly reside on the Simon forum.. I never know how clique-ish the players forums are (still sort of learning the ways of mtf) i'm a huge fan, supported him since 2004 pretty much, and anyone who is a fan of Andy's is a friend of mine

Gilles Simon
Dimitrov • Mahut • Paire • Hewitt • Raonic • Berdych • Gulbis • Murray


Thanks for the memories... Andy Roddick.

Re: The "Grass is back AKA Andy arrives to a tourney 5 days early" thread

i'm wondering about those socks as well. i thought he'd be back to his ankle braces on grass. just waiting for an injury to crop up now.

(tho his legs do look pretty fantastic there. )

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

Some information about the ankle braces: http://www.yardbarker.com/tennis/art...s_club/4924171

"Just trying to flash the calf a little bit. Everyone comments on how my wife (model Brooklyn Decker) has nice legs, so I decided to display them also. I can't come second in the family in everything."

Re: The "Grass is back AKA Andy arrives to a tourney 5 days early" thread

omg, that's all his press conference was about


AEGON CHAMPIONSHIPS

June 7, 2011

Andy Roddick

LONDON, ENGLAND

Q. Everybody enjoyed that match, Andy. Welcome back to the grass. How did you enjoy that?
ANDY RODDICK: I didn't enjoy it when I saw that I might play him second round, I'll tell you that much.
I felt great on the grass. This is one of my favorite tournaments in the world, and I'm just so happy to be back here in London.

Q. What did you get out of that match? I mean, I know Queen's is all about Wimbledon, but Queen's is about Queen's, as well. What did you get from the match?
ANDY RODDICK: Well, you play a match to try to win a match. You know, we come over here for Wimbledon, but we're trying to win this tournament. You know, I knew it was going to be tough. He's a very good grass court player, serves big.
A couple points here and there, I thought I started returning real well there in the third set.

Q. Indeed. Now, we must ask, because we have noticed something down below.
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah.

Q. Let's have a look. We are going to move the camera down. Only the socks.
ANDY RODDICK: What did you notice down below, Andrew? (Laughter.)

Q. Well, we were just having a little look here, and it looked fairly clean-shaven and the little pop socks, as well. What's the idea?
ANDY RODDICK: Just trying to flash the calf a little bit, you know? That's it.

Q. You don't want any little bobbles on the back there, like the girls wear, just to keep the socks up?
ANDY RODDICK: Well, no. Everyone comments on how my wife has nice legs, so I just decided to display them, also. I can't come in second in the family in everything.

Q. Never compete with the wife. Andy, have a good week. Good to see you back.
ANDY RODDICK: Thank you.

Andy beat Anderson, 6-4 6-4. Started not so great apparently but then was solid after. He'll face Verdasco next.

Re: The "Grass is back AKA Andy arrives to a tourney 5 days early" thread

Really, he's looked pretty crappy to be honest. Aside from the surface helping his slice serve, there really isn't any change in his play. He just slices and loops from the baseline waiting for errors and then intentionally drops the ball short and then tries to make a quick pass. Hopefully after a couple more wins and the confidence grows he'll be willing to take a few more risks. Don't get your hopes up.

Andy? Hope? Please. All I hope for in a match is no bagel or breadstick.
