Un bref séjour en France - Andy at Roland Garros Thread

Didn't see a clay season thread and I'm pretty sure Andy is going to be playing in Madrid next week (at least, according to his website, he is).

Hopefully he can grab some points in Madrid and Rome and RG...so his seeding will be a bit higher for Wimbledon. I think that's all us fans can really hope for, right? (oh yea...fitness and health).

I would like to remind you guys that Tim Henman made the semis at RG after never making it past the 2nd and 3rd rounds there! If Tiger Tim can do it then maybe there is hope...right?

Re: Claymation - Clay Season Thread?!?

According to his site, he won't play Rome. Which is sad, because I bought tickets...

When Henman made semis at RG, he was top 10 - different draw. Andy has to play the big guns in 3rd round. Every win is bonus right now, anything above 2nd round - great. At least on clay.

So he'll play Madrid but not Rome? What's he going to do, go back to Austin? What a waste.

Sources?

I'm going to change this thread name to "Skipping the Clay Season"

Edit:

Right hamstring injury...He's not playing Rome as well.

Re: Cl-vaycation (::) Skipping The Clay Season Thread

Again!? Things became really desperate and sad. Andy can't stay healthy even for a couple of months, regardless of playing a tournament or not.

Re: Cl-vaycation (::) Skipping The Clay Season Thread

Look at that, he hasn't step foot on clay yet and he's already injured himself.

"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: Cl-vaycation (::) Skipping The Clay Season Thread

I don't believe it. If he's not healthy enough to play right now then there's no way he'll be fit enough to play Wimbledon.

WOW.

Although Andy will likely not be appearing anytime soon on the tennis court...he did make an appearance on a free tote bag that I got after I purchased the new propulse 3s.

Andy responded to Ivan's tweet this weekend. No word though on his health, though or when he'll be back or if he'll be back for the French.
