Favorite Shot to watch Andy hit.

I still love Andy's forehand, I have tried desperately to copy it. The way he cranks up fires and he leaves the ground. WOWSA...you know that ain't coming back. What's your favorite Roddick shot?

( pssstt..It doesn't have to be his best shot, it's just your favorite to watch him execute)

Re: Favorite Shot to watch Andy hit.

I would have to say the forehand. Just something about that shot that looks great to me. I think he has one of the best forehands on tour.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

Re: Favorite Shot to watch Andy hit.

VOLLEYYYS, because everytime he pulls off a sweet volley, i think maybe becoz at the moment its quite the rarity, i love his forehand too, him ripping up the line has to be one of my favourite shots in tennis today though.

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Re: Favorite Shot to watch Andy hit.

Wow everyone likes the overhead...I like it when he just slams the overhead right in the face of his oppenent and he hits it soo hard they can't do crap except look at the ball shoot off the court like a rocket.



Better than Pete?

Re: Favorite Shot to watch Andy hit.

I have to say his forehand. It's great to see him run around and crush it for a winner. To me it's the most attractive to watch, although it's a really violent swing

He's really improving that shot, isn't he. I mean, 2 years ago I never would expected to see backhands like he's been doing the last couple months I think eventually it will become more of a weapon

if he can continue to produce shots of that quality more consistently it can only mean good things for his game...and if he can then his game will be to watch!!!!
