Re: The Captain Obvious Thread.

5.25.2005 -

All of the big guns got through today except Henman, who lost to Luis Horna, not a huge surprise since the Peruvian likes the dirt and plays like a poor man’s Gonzales. Today was a good day for the Americans; no losses. (Yeah but how many played? 2? ) Andy should do well tomorrow, as it is expected to reach a high of 92 degrees. This is a big advantage for him when the court speeds up. My top three picks are 9-0 in sets, which bodes well for their chances to reach the semis.

The Gilbert families, minus Z-man, are all flying from CA to Paris. It will be Zoe’s first trip across the pond. Hopefully Tatiana will win tomorrow so that they can see her play later in the week. (oh god does he really call his son Z-man?????? Poor guy And, does he have multiple famILIES? )

I used to think that coaching and playing on the tour was difficult, but working all day until 1:00 a.m. is a lot harder. The good thing is that I can’t lose a match in the booth.

That's a statement so obvious that it's like it is from the Captain Obvious himself!

Re: The Captain Obvious Thread.

Wow...This guy's really excited!!!!
I can't forget when the curious Captain kissed up to
Ljubicic. He enthusiastically asked him about the Croatian T-Shirts
during Davis Cup, "WHAT'S THIS????!!!!"
That was shown on ESPN Classic.

Why not be a sport and add Todd Martin, Mal Washington and David Wheaton to the list? The surface would play a role, but you gotta go with Gilbert.

Re: The Captain Obvious Thread.

On the Tennis X forum someone posted a comment regarding something that Brad said during the late night French Open Review on ESPN. I guess someone asked Brad what he thought about Dean's work with Andy. Brad supposedly criticized 3 things. Did anyone see this? Just wondering what Brad said..........

"Work like you don't need the money, Sing like nobody's listening, Dance like nobody's watching, Love like you've never been hurt." - Mark Twain

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Re: The Captain Obvious Thread.

I didn't see it so I can't say, but I'd guess one of the things was about him standing so far behind the baseline... and of course, Andy's been doing that since he was a short little kid who had to scrap, and Brad didn't help him improve that at all either. I'd be interested to know what he actually said too, though.

Re: The Captain Obvious Thread.

Coaches don't make the player. Sides, Andy has vastly improved on alot of stuff since Brad's departure. Leaving Brad was a good move.
