Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Meh. I don't feel so bad now that Andy Murray lost in the first round in three sets, too.

"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: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Well, I really like the optimistic post by Fumus, hopefully, he is right

At least Lleyton/Andy doubles team won Ok, it's probably just a meaningless doubles match, but it is so cool to see those two warriors from the previous decade battling it out together. I mean, I grew up watching these guys, it is just great to see them playing together. I really hope that the next match will be streamed, so I can watch them in action

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

It's good bc Andy needs time on court in a real match atmosphere doesn't matter if it's meaningless doubles. He's lost a ton of singles matches in a row but let's not forget the last one he won. If he's healthy which it sounds like he is, what he needs is confidence.

A little unexpected but good news, imo.

Good luck to Lleyton/Andy pairing tonight against the doubles specialists

Not giving up the ghost just yet it seems. He wants to play...and play into form.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Andy finally snapped his losing streak after Querrey retired down 2-5. Probably not how he wants to win, but a win is a win.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

well it's at least encouraging that he said things have started coming together in practice the last couple days.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

OMG Andy wins FOR REALS this time! Only 4 ue's. His serve is looking like a normal Roddick serve. He's hitting the ball more confident now, it's so good to see again. Hope he can keep it up.

"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: 2012 Grasscourt Season

W/UE ratio was 20/4 today Andy served 7 aces, so excluding those it was 13 winners from the match.

Overall fine performance, and thanks to tennis God that he was able to convert his 8th matchpoint, otherwise it would have been a very disappointing experience. Good luck against Fognini now! And judging from how Andy tries and fires himself up, he really wants to win and is really going for it. Very nice to see.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Well, his press conferences appear to be getting more optimistic, that can't be a bad sign.
