Re: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

Here's the part from the latercera.cl article about Andy not going to Shanghai (sorry its a translation):

The American Andy Roddick will not be presented to play the Masters Cup of Shanghai, for which its place will be occupied by the Argentine David Nalbandian, that figured until today as first acting.

The desertion of Roddick, who suffers from a lumbar problem, was confirmed today by a source of first line of the male circuit of tennis.

Re: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

It seems like all these Spanish-speaking sources (and so far it is only spanish-speaking sources) are generally saying the same thing and getting the info from the same (as yet unnamed) sources. still nothing in any english-speaking news, American or elsewhere.

And if this stuff is accurate, it really hurts Leo Schlink's credibility, and he's one of the best tennis writers in the world - he broke the news first that Andy ditched Brad last year... I mean he knows his stuff and this makes no sense.

Re: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

sigh...

"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

if Andy doesn't go to TMC, i think we should all get together and bake him a big Get Well cake and bring it to him

I've Google news'd every language/news source. Nothing but the one that's been mentioned - the Reuters of South America? And the source they state is shaky to me. I've also checked the Masters site in Chinese - nothing. Not even the Swiss papers, and you'd think they'd all be there following Roger around this week. So I remain hopeful.

Ok, AR.com step up to the plate and provide us some reliable news. Isn't that what Andy's official site should be for?

We all know they don't really do THAT, right?

That doesn't mean anything. Several news sources have been "reporting" on Andy's withdrawal all day long.

~the Argentine press has no reason to lie as it directly involves one of their players.
The Argentine press would love to see another one of their own get into the MC draw so their reportage is questionable, imo. I repeat: there has been no OFFICIAL word yet on his withdrawal.

I don't understand why people are jumping the gun on this.

"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: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

I think if Andy was officially out, the ATP tennis site would have something up. The TMC doesn't have anything out either. Someone get Andy's ass on the phone.

QUACK IT LOUD....QUACK IT PROUD!!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK TO: ANDY, HAAS, MARDY, BRYANS, JAMES, DJOKOVIC, MOODIE, ROBBY, MOYA, SAFIN, GICQUEL

DAVIS CUP CHAMPS FOR 2007!!!!!!!!!! WAY TO GO USA!!!!!!!

Re: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

I put a message on to Tennis Week's message board - they tend to check it early in the morning eastern time.

Probably will come out - true or false - somewhere else before then but just in case.

I know, it's all coming from one source.

Athena is from China and she says the news there is contrary.

Who knows what to believe at this point

Now for a moment of brevity in all this drama:

Andy translates to "peacefully enlightens" on the China Masters Series site.

Re: Git Yer Ass to Shanghai, Andy! -- TMC thread

I'm staying online until I find out for sure whether Andy's going to Shanghai or not (so I can change the thread title appropriately).

On hiatus, just because.

I know you said your real first name on one of the other threads, but I forgot.

On hiatus, just because.
