holycrapdeath. (The Funny Andy Thread!)

Why haven't we started this before?

Anyway, this is from AR.com. We can build this up and add funny things Andy says
----------------
Humorous Andy Quotes

By Lucy Flory
2005-04-05

Andy often has a lot of friendly and funny banter with the press in his post-match press conferences. Andy makes jokes (and bloopers), when he wins or loses. AR.com has looked back over the years and selected the following collection of some of the funniest interview exchanges!

Q. What's the best thing about tennis to you?
ANDY RODDICK: The best thing about tennis to me?
Q. Yeah. What keeps you playing it?
ANDY RODDICK: The cheerleaders. Wait, there are none (Wimbledon 2002)

ANDY RODDICK: The wind was blowing, the dogs were barking, something got in my eye. (Andy, after his loss to Rusedski at Wimbledon, 2002)

Q. Diving into the crowd. I take it that was just kind of a spontaneous thing.
ANDY RODDICK: No, I planned to hit a between-the-leg shot, run down a ball, run into the crowd. That was all in the works from the beginning (smiling). (US Open 2002)

Q. Harassment in the locker room yesterday? Were people talking about it to you?
ANDY RODDICK: You guys think you're clever with your livestock questions. I've heard it six times already (laughter). Anything you guys are coming up with, yeah. (Wimbledon 2004, after Andy’s appearance on “The Weakest Link” when he infamously replied "baaa" to Ann Robinson after being asked the name of a female sheep.)

ANDY RODDICK: When it started raining and people said, "It's the survival of the fittest," I said, "oh, God. That's not good, is it?" (US Open, 2003)

Q. You looking to perhaps convince Reebok to make a sleeveless shirt for you?
ANDY RODDICK: No, if I wore a sleeveless shirt, people would try to feed me after the match. If you got the guns, go for it. I got two breadsticks sticking out of my sleeve. I'll stick with sleeves. (Australian Open, 2003)

Q. You put your ID on before you left the court. Have you been stopped somewhere around the courts?
ANDY RODDICK: I get stopped everywhere (laughter). You'll see 18 guys walking before me. I'll be the one pointed out. I guess they think I'm trying to sneak into the locker rooms. (Wimbledon 2001)

Q. Did you ever try diving?
ANDY RODDICK: I used to belly flop (laughter). (Wimbledon 2001)

Q. In that first set, that man had the sign. Looks like you saw it, reacted to it.
ANDY RODDICK: He rants and raves, yet he's been out here both nights watching. You know, maybe he needs a hobby or something. Get him a set of cards, you know. (US Open 2001)

Q. You knew Jack back from junior days. Did you imagine this might be one of the guys you might be playing at the US Open?
ANDY RODDICK: No. Of course, you never think about those things when you're ten. I was worrying how I was going to get money to buy a Frosty at a vending machine. I wasn't worried about the US Open then. (US Open 2001)

Q. Who is the best ping pong player?
ANDY RODDICK: Me. Stupid question. (Laughs) (Davis Cup v Slovakia 2002)

Q. Can you remember what you were like at 15? Did you have that kind of composure?
ANDY RODDICK: I was trying to learn how to tie my shoes at 15. (Monte Carlo 2002 talking about Gasquet)

Q. You dropped your serve first game in the second. Was that as a result of the anger?
ANDY RODDICK: I think that was more a result of me flogging forehands seven feet wide all day than anything (laughing). (Monte Carlo 2002)

Q. Are you going to be wearing a cap or a visor this week?
ANDY RODDICK: Down to the really nitty-gritty questions. (Laughs.) I don't know. (US Open 2002)

Q. Competing with James for the hair?
ANDY RODDICK: I can't compare with James. He's got that Sideshow Bob look from "The Simpsons." I don't know.
Q. Getting closer?
ANDY RODDICK: Just laziness. (US Open 2002)

Q. Do you remember when you were first asked for an autograph, the first autograph you signed?
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I think I was at Roland Garros when I was 15, walking around. I was playing quallies, I think someone asked me. They said, "Hewitt, Hewitt (laughter)." (US Open 2002)

Re: holycrapdeath. (The Funny Andy Thread!)

Well no it's not the most creative idea, but hey it inspired me to start this thread, so we can build up the list as new things happen or as people discover old ones (cuz there are bazillions more than this, obviously) - I can even edit them in the first post so we have a running list all in one place. Plus they're always funny, even if you've read them before

Oh well, I thought it was a fun idea

Re: holycrapdeath. (The Funny Andy Thread!)

I love it Deb. ...I desperately needed this today, so thank you

and here are a few more

You said it, I didn't. I can't think of anything funny to say that would not get me in trouble. I'm going to leave that one alone."
-- Andy Roddick, replying to a media question as to whether the new long pants worn this year by some of the Spaniards and other players are "too metrosexual."

"If I'd known it was going to be this cold, I wouldn't have done it."
-- Andy Roddick on his new short haircut at the Masters Cup in Houston

"Neither will you."
-- Andy Roddick during an on-line ESPN-sponsored chat answering the accusation "...you suck and you will never win a major again so what do you have to say about that?"

"Yeah. I said, "Get him, help me out." Compliments, no, I just wanted the bee to get him. I mean..." - Why Andy wanted the bee to sting Roger Federer during their semifinal match, Wimbledon 2003

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light

Hahaha, wouldn't it be funny if he actually signed them 'Lleyton Hewitt' ? Then there'd be these little teenyboppers running around like, "ohmygosh, i have lleyton's autograph omg lolz fo sho im so kewl!" But they'd actually have a fake. Hahaha.

Re: holycrapdeath. (The Funny Andy Thread!)

I don't know where this quote from ( a friend post several quotes of several players)

"Rod-dick...I had years of psychological issues with that."
-- Andy Roddick.

That is one of my favorite quotes!

And another bunch of quotes here:

Quote:
"The way I see it, the more matches I win, the cooler I get..."

"Why don't you turn the machine off and use your own brain?" - Siebel Open 2004

Umpire: "I couldn't see"
Andy: "You're supposed to see for a living" -Australian Open 2004


"That's so bad, so bad ... I'm surprised you can count to eighteen!!!" -Australian Open 2003

"We thought it [my rabbit] was a boy at first, but with rabbits you can't tell for the first couple of months. We initially named the rabbit Stiffler [after the character in the film, American Pie]. But now we think it's a girl so we may have to change it's name to Phoebe." –Andy

"It is all your fault... but nothing personal" -Andy to Chair Umpire after a loss

When asked about his rescue of Elmo during his semi-final at the Aus Open, 2003: ”Elmo's a very important person in my life. You've got to have Elmo's respect. You don't want to piss him off” ...Elmo's response: 'If anybody's seen the top of Andy Roddick's hat, could you please return it?' -Australian Open 2003

"My hobbies include underwater fire extinguishing" - Andy on his hobbies

Oh, I so remember the match against El Aynaoui at the AO 2003... Andy was so pissed at the umpire (death glare!)
And I'm not even going to comment on the Elmo thing since it's really disturbing *lol*

Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. - Muhammad Ali
--
Andy Roddick - Marat Safin - Tommy Haas - Mario Ancic - Xavier Malisse - Andre Agassi - Pete Sampras - Jimmy Connors
