Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

For the ones who don't know...

In the change over of the end of the second/begining of the third set Andy went to the lockers room and he took forever to come back. Lleyton was already waiting for him in the court and Andy came in running. So the ultimate question is what is it that he did that took him so long

He probably just changed clothes. Here they said that the lockers room is not too close to the Rod Laver so it probably took him long to get there and come back. But I bet he had to change his shorts, shirt, socks and shoes.
Of course he could have done it on court

that oooor he had diarrhea.

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

thanks for filling me in.

why did he have to change all his clothes?!

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

exactly Caro...and here they said when they went in to find him he didnt have his shoes or socks on, so that was a delay as well. After losing that TB he probably just wanted to get a fresh start with new clothes and all that but obviously that backfired on him. And he shouldnt have taken that long either...but yeah.

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

I've never seen him do that, and I hope to never see him do it again. It was bizarre, odd, unnerving, and every other negative word I can possibly think of. I'm still baffled by it. The whole thing just makes me shake my head.

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

well he was sweating ALOT so maybe he wanted to change them to be dry! i think he probably went for a shower and got confused by the water draining the wrong way so went to flush the loo and saw that did it too and just got hynotised!

Good Luck to my boys

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

He for sure didn't take a shower. He would've gotten in big trouble if he had. He changes his shirt in matches all the time, but for some reason he thought it would be a good idea to actually leave court - well obviously it wasn't - he got into a tussle with the tourney referee, he took WAY too long, and it didn't help him regroup, in fact it obviously really hurt him. So I hope he learned his lesson and will never pull that shit again.

He was probably washing that number two ranking right off him and then flushing his career down the toilet.

Re: the ultimate question! lets here the theories

He's changed his clothes before as well. It was during the summer of 03 when he was having his brilliant run. I think it was at the USO vs Ivan the retard and he changed everything because it was hot. If it was just a shirt change, he would have done it on court, he does it all the time, but I'm sure he also changed everything else.

i don't have any problem with him changing if he wants to change i'm fine with that the women have been doing it all tourny and they don't play as many sets all i wanna know is why it takes 8 minutes to get changed? if he needs help maybe next time someone (me) will have togive him a hand getting his clothes off! of course i might not let him put them back on again

Good Luck to my boys

Re: the ultimate question! lets hear the theories

They said on ESPN that he had a pretty bad argument with the tournee referee --- anyone know what that was all about?

Re: the ultimate question! lets hear the theories

He sat down with no socks and shoes on a chair.
Probably afraid to confront reality on the court. It's a 2-3 minute walk to and from the locker room.
Maybe it's proof that he feels relieved when he's not playing.
Not too long ago, he said that he welcomed some rest from important tennis competition.

Re: the ultimate question! lets hear the theories

Who knows that break didn't help any if anything it made him worse. I think it was cuz he had time to think about the shit he piled up for himself knew he couldn't really dig himself out of but still doesn't give him the right to just blow the set like that.

But my theories are....

He probably went to have a temper tantrum and kick the shit out of something because he knew the match should have been done a long time ago and he should have been in the finals but instead he was down 2 sets to 1.

or...

Went to find one of his practice racquets to " accidently" lose grip of to hit one of those asshole lleyton fans.

or.....

He went to contemplate should I or shouldn't I throw this match and make an ass of myself so the Aussie's have something to cheer about aww.. that's so sweet Andy

2012 SEASON IS HERE!

GOOD LUCK TO|ANDY!| | JAMES ! | ROGI ! | RAFA !| MILOS!| NOVAK! | MARDY! | RICHARD ! |ROBBY !| TOMMY!| JCF !| GAEL!| DAVID!| |CARLOS!|

YOU ROCK BOYS!!

Re: the ultimate question! lets hear the theories

See, a 1-dimensional player tries his best, but has trouble winning.

Andy isn't 1-dimensional, but believed that winning a slam made him a great player. Suddenly, he acted like a burden was lifted from his shoulders.
He was like Dennis Rodman, hyped himself to the media & made a nose dive.
Of course, the right decisions aren't there yet.
His body & mind need harmony, but he won't listen.
No tennis player can depend on talent alone.
Some guys have more agility, so they might have an easier time with returns.
Andy knows he is not as strong as 2 years ago. Therefore, he's afraid of injury. He doesn't scramble hard for the ball 'cuz he thinks
his serve is #1.
That's why he's not fired up & joyful anymore.
It's his return game that made him #1.
Too bad, everyone had doubt about him from the beginning.
