He saved double MP vs Haas at the Olympics last year (doesn't it feel like the Olympics happened ages ago?) He also saved MP vs Ljubicic at RCA last year. And he saved an almost-MP at Wimbledon vs Bracciali this year (remember that dive volley he hit? that saved his ass )

Loss was expected with that back injury. Still a decent scoreline vs Ivan who has caught fire again these past few weeks. Now he's got a little over a week to rest up his back/shoulder and to be ready to go for the TMC. He does have a pretty good shot at it, it all depends on his injury/how sucky Federer will be.

LOL GM is a fricking joke. How could people accuse Roddick of faking something like this?

Oh well Roddick battled hard and overall i think this tournament was good for him. Reaching the semis of a TMS and barely losing to a Player who is considered to be one of the best on this surface while playing his best while not being at your best is nothing to feel shame at (wow that was confusing). Hopefully Roddick can get well in time for Shanghai and improve this offseason.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Oh, I'm not surprised at all. They've done it before, but they are just like that. They hate him. That's why I haven't gone in there since yesterday even when he won that match. I just could not care less what they think. All those people who say and think horrible things about people they know will get their due - I believe in karma

For sure. He didn't have that sort of shameful look he's had after some of his bad losses recently where he was like, omg I don't even want to be out here at all I hope the black hole sucks me in. He looked more like he felt badly for letting down the crowd and stuff, which is sort of ironic since they were behind him 100% based on the effort he gave yesterday and was giving today (today was especially loud support, I think in part after what they had seen last night with Gaudio totally tanking it in for no reason, they appreciated that Andy was trying as best he could). I mean to be fair, Ljubicic wasn't at his best either. Even the commentators said a few times that he really wasn't doing much special. He did play the one excellent return game at 5all in the 2nd, hitting a couple return winners (then again if andy had been fit enough to get to them they may not have been winners), but after the match, the commentators were like, well these stats are pretty meaningless (b/c on the face of the stats, Andy played alright lol). I mean, the way Ljubicic was playing, if Andy had played like he had against Hrbaty, he absolutely would have won. But, unfortunately, he simply could not do that. I think andy would've lost to almost anyone he played today, so yes, the fact that the scoreline is relatively close is a positive that Andy badly needs to take away from the match.

Unfortunately now he has a long plane ride to look forward to, that certainly won't help his back.

He's supposed to go to Shanghai in just a few days (so that he has a few days before the start of the tourney to get acclamatized, etc).... so it's really two long plane rides in a span of a few days. And it also doesn't really leave him much time to get better before deciding to go. I'd rather him go to Shanghai and decide there whether to play b/c then if it IS better at least he's there plenty early to get used to the different conditions and time zone and all...

Regardless, there are positives for 2006 I think...... I hope.....

And the above post is why Deb is the bestest (yes I know this isn't a word) moderator ever!!

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 "allez Andy, you cancancan do it" Lyon and Paris thread

aw *blushes*

But I was just thinking.... anyone who saw that match today, if they saw when he got treated the first time and if they saw the close-up on his face where he was closing his eyes and grimacing with pain and still think he was faking, then honestly, something is not right in their heads. I mean honestly, the poor kid was in fucking agony and anyone with a shred of compassion in their soul would see that.

While I am disappointed that Andy lost, I am glad he is getting out of Paris. From the media, it sounds like things are deteriorating with the Islamic rioters.
