Re: The well, at least the discussion was fun for a day not-really-Delray-Thread

I'm glad they're not showing Davis Cup on Espn.
I can't stand the "party and babysit Max" atmosphere.
Andy can't handle pain anymore-- emotional & physical.

He cried and apologized for losing in 2002.

Winning includes being honest.
It's not bad to look disrespectful just because you cancel a few
tournaments & charity exhbitions.

Apparently Vince was playing really well and Andy was pissed off at the wind (damn you mother nature ) but he still beat Vince I guess if one is too close in a practice set with Vince Spadea, something is wrong. Vince sucks

But this info was coming from your BFF What's he gonna say, Vinnay was sucking?

Andy doesn't usually get upset when his opponent plays well, he usually gets upset at himself

Hey Pinkster, how's the hit count on your site these days?

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: The well, at least the discussion was fun for a day not-really-Delray-Thread

I read this first in GM and then here. I read it like 10 times. I thought I was sort of misunderstanding something you know.

But Andy was going to try to qualify for a tournament.

I mean... WHAT THE FLYING FUCK?!

Thank god he's not playing. That'd just be a plain waste of time.

Re: The well, at least the discussion was fun for a day not-really-Delray-Thread

I, the evil one, hate Rodd, the sacrificial duck.
Sacrifice potential by being the heart-felt hero for "friends."

He knows he jumped into the arms of coaches just because they lived in the US.

(he knew that we knew he lied) Andy begged for special treatment from "American hero tournament directors."
He and Dean lied about his ball striking. What pride can he lose now? His balls are gone!?

Andy can fake that he loves Slams + Davis Cup...
The fact is he loves AMERICAN EVENTS with good chances to win....
(Andy should be ranked #50. Live by the unremarkable serve....die by it too).


Pat Mc sucked butt pathetically. "Players aren't taking all tournaments seriously."
Andy can only think about DC, now that his career is over.
I'm sure Andy will sacrifice his career to play Davis Cup for Daddy Pat.
Pat, the 2 faced sycophantic minion, repeated ad nauseum, "The game is not filled with big servers! GREAT for us! The men's game is deeper + better than in Laver's era." REALLY, PAT? Mr. Unbiased Pat, my ass.



When he got scared of Fed, he decided to wimp out before he had more nightmares of another loss.
Haas & Davydenko choked away possible 4 set wins. No reason to deny it.
Marcos was weak at break point chances, but
PATMC can only call him a genius with GREAT COURT SENSE.

Re: The well, at least the discussion was fun for a day not-really-Delray-Thread

Always two sides to the story. Very interesting. And it would explain why Andy was so upset. Because by the time he had that practice, he knew that it had hit the press. Man, the tourney messed up bigtime on this one, I'd say.
===============================
Coach: Roddick felt deceived by tourney director

By Harvey Fialkov
Staff Writer
Posted January 29 2006

DELRAY BEACH · Andy Roddick's coach said that his player's change of heart regarding his last-minute request to play in the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships on Friday had little to do with him having to play in this weekend's qualifying rounds.

Because the three allotted wild cards had already been given to Mardy Fish, Andre Agassi and Sargis Sargsian -- Agassi's close friend and hitting partner -- Roddick, who decided Thursday night to enter the $380,000 event to help prepare for the upcoming Davis Cup tie against Romania, was prepared to earn his way into the 32-player draw, a rare route for top-ranked players.

``Why would Andy fly in from Texas at his own expense to play?'' asked Roddick's coach, Dean Goldfine. ``Sure, it would've been easier to get a wild card, but it didn't have anything to do about playing qualifiers. Andy couldn't justify being out there playing their tournament when he felt deceived by [tournament director] Mark Baron.''

The only issue of contention that Goldfine would specifically address had to do with Roddick's agreement with the tournament not to publicize his participation in qualifying until he actually was playing.

Baron called this a ``misunderstanding.''

Baron said earlier in the week when he was aware of Roddick's intentions to play his tournament that he asked the ATP to expand the draw to 48, which would net a fourth wild card. He knew that wasn't a realistic request on such short notice.

``I called Fish's people to see if he was healthy. They said he was ready to play,'' Baron said of Fish, who has undergone two wrist surgeries and has been off the tour for the past five months. ``There was nothing else I could do. Andy wanted a wild card, and I had none to offer.''

Fish, who like Roddick is represented by SFX, said he never felt pressure to give up his wild card to his friend, but he suggested that the 300th-ranked Sargsian, 32, who retired after the U.S. Open, should have.

``I think everybody knows the one who should get pressure a lot,'' Fish said. ``I didn't get [a wild card] in San Jose, and Sargis got one there as well. It's kind of a bummer for both of us.''

Baron said he would never ask a healthy player to give back a wild card and didn't ask Sargsian.
