Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy
Beating Lleyton in Cincy- not just the win, but the manner of the win.
Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?
Nando match, again. His post-final wimbledon speech (they always make me proud to be his fan because they make my heart smile and then I laugh, lots!). Also, all the Charity/Foundation work makes me proud, though that's not strictly a moment. Heh.
Match that made you cringe
A good few too many, I guess losing to Muller@USO sticks out, though not the maner of the defeat- just the whole 'talk him up- mojo rubbish' that surrounded the whole thing. It just felt deflating afterwards- and teh mojo stuff made me cringe.
Biggest disappointment of 2005
Wimbledon final (even though it was as expected), RG performance (as usual), Davis Cup match vs Ljubo...I couldn't really pick just one answer to that!
His best win
Hewitt, Cincy match/Hrbaty, Paris AMS.
His worst loss
USO vs Muller.
Best Roddick Match (win or lose)
vs Ferrer in Lyon.
Best moment (on or off court)
Beating Lleyton (C'monnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!11!!1!!)
Worst moment (on or off court)
ranting at the ump, AO
Acasuso match, yep.
Best Andy quote in 2005
off the top of my head:Q. Gosh, that's pressure.
ANDY RODDICK: Bud, are you feeling the pressure? What does it feel like? How are you coping with being the only journalist to wear a shirt like that?
Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Anyone good. |:
Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
I thought the AO (blasted hewitt)
Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
I don't think he will win one, sadly. Most likely to win USO.
Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
I don't care
Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?
No, he should stick at it with Dean, as some things gamewise are definitely moving in the right direction (volleys, omgheart111!!!1!11).
What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Volleying, his backhand slice has improved very slightly...
What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Sort your head out. Also, stand closer to that damn baseline. KthanksAndy.
anything with colour.
The white but I blame Wimbledon for that, too.
Process of elimination only says the Lexus ones win by a landslide.
Need you ask? Mjomoojhjshsjo or however you say it.
Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
In terms of game, he is much improved, his head this year was much, much worse. So a mixture of the two.
How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
B for game, D- for 'Where's your head at?' mentality. So I'd say a C overall.
and yes, he should be doing better.
