Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Apparently Andy and Lleyton are teaming up for doubles as well.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

It's great how these two great fighters became friends through the years. At one point, about 2003-2006 they did not get along very well.

That's cool, I remember when Andy teamed up with Andre there oh so long ago.


Mister Q said, "They'll play one up and one back...Andre on the baseline and Andy 5 feet behind it".

Those were the days.


Is Andy actually in London yet?

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Just saw that Nalbandian match was moved to the court where Andy/Lleyton should be playing. Something happened, I just hope Andy is not injured again.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

It must be Hewitt who's injured because Andy's now teamed to play doubles with Roger-Vasselin.

Did you guys see this?

Andy Roddick Admits 2012 May Be His Last Wimbledon

Say it ain't so, Andeeee.


"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

Andy's playing against Roger-Vasselin. He and Hewitt are last on Centre tomorrow. I think they've been postponing/taking doubles off the schedule every day b/c of rain.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Andy may or may not win this match but he looks terrible. It's depressing.

I do have to add though, that he seems to be moving more comfortably here than he has. Maybe grass will make him flip a switch, who knows.

Well, Andy lost. Pretty much nothing else left to say.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

He looks terrible and slow and insecure. Andy really should call it quits. He can't win one a match. I hoped he could get to 600 wins before he retire. Obviously this is not going to happen. After the Olympics will be the perfect time.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Nah he'll do it at/after a us open. Can't imagine he'd retire anywhere else

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Oh my He had that one chance on the matchpoint, it was a good opening, Roger-Vasselin left a free space for Andy to pass him at the net by going BHDTL. And he sent that backhand at least few meters out.

It is sad that it has gone so far that part of me is happy with the fact that he didn't lose 0-2, but managed to make it as close as it was. When he got broken in that 1st set, I thought it is gonna be 0-2 without any doubts.

22 aces, 79% 1st serve, and still a loss. Another disappointment. I am very sad now

Yes, you are right. He better play Wilmbledon, Olympics and than make a final appearance at the USO. There is no point in finishing with 20 consecutive losses.

Re: 2012 Grasscourt Season

Meh and bleh.

I wouldn't count Andy out. He looked healthy out there. He can play himself into form but he'll need some luck to go further than maybe the 3rd round of Wimbly.

I think we'll see a return to form sometime this summer and we won't see a retirement until next year. In the article Tangy posted, Andy was sorta saying it could be his last Wimbledon(as if to say anything can happen)...but not that it would be.
