Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

Jen, nooooo its making me sad too and then i saw your av and i was like even more

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: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

The first thing I noticed about Roddick when I saw him LIVE was that he has a big butt. The first thing that I noticed on TV was his serve.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

I was casually watching one of his matches on TV and all the commentators and their moms were hyping him up as the "next great American player to follow Sampras and Agassi". I kept my eye out for him and his personality and passion got me into him. Oh, this was during the summer of 2001.

Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

It's ok, Deb We all want the 2003 version of Andy back (mentally, at least; I prefer his new more well-rounded game).

So do I, Jen. Hopefully, this year will be another vintage year for Andy.

Quit trolling my thread, Chloe. j/k When I saw Andy LIVE I noticed his serve first: it was loud, it "popped", and people were literally ducking out of the way to avoid injury (no, I'm not exaggerating). On TV, I noticed that his butt looks bigger on TV than in person (esp. when he wears white shorts).

"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: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

I noticed his success as a junior..... and his name that made the boys roll on the floor laughing and making up nasty jokes about it.

Then I noticed he beat Sampras.... and bingo! I was and then he won two clay tournaments in a row and had Benhabiles as his coach, I was even more I fee so betrayed.

I love the sound his serve makes live, I could use that sound for ambience music in my home. I must remember to record if I see him over the summer.
Ahem, I'm a little obsessive about such small sounds in tennis, still beats the grunting noises other players make.

I'm not really sure what I first noticed about Andy (too long ago) but it was probably a mixture of all of the things listed. I'm not selective when it comes to Andy's likeable traits.
I agree star, the Sampras match really made me him even more.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

1st thing: incredible power
2nd thing: personality (I noticed he has a loose tongue, he is often cool and funny when talking to people or on press conferences)
3rd thing: passion (winning some difficult and big matches in 2003)

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

omg yes the sound of his serve live is really scary. No one else's serve pops like that, not even other people with big serves.
