Re: the WTF ARE YOU DOING PLAYING THIS TOURNEY?!?!!??!!?!?! Delray thread

oh my, im super excited for this!
to be honest, im quite impressed with andy for using his initiative with playing the tournament and for 'lowering himself' (although it totally isnt) to playing qualies. this really shows that he does want match practise and he'll get it any way he can.

because these lower ranked players won't (or shouldn't) be hard for him, he can practise lots of new tricks in preparation for DC

woot for this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well maybe he'll really get to work on his return game.

"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

AR.com is so phucking useless. Check out this latest sugar-coated PR release from them about Andy playing the quallies:

Quote:
In a completely unpredictable and inspired move, Andy has elected to play in the International Series Delray Beach qualifying tournament this weekend. Andy’s decision to compete in the tournament came after the wild card entry deadline, placing the top ranked American in territory reminiscent of his junior days.

This unprecedented and remarkable decision is a first for the men’s tour. Our sources at the ATP report this has never been done before. The closest was Goran Ivanesivic back in 1991 playing a tune-up tournament in Nottingham prior to Wimbledon. Goran did play qualifying and was put in the draw as the #2 seed.

"I guess the simple reason is that Andy wanted to play matches," agent Ken Meyerson reacted to his star client’s spontaneity.

Qualifying rounds begin Saturday. Check back to Ar.com for more of Andy in Delray Beach.

Go Andy!
Oh please STFU, Ken Meyerson. Why do these a-holes always feel the need to downplay stuff like this? Who are they trying to protect? Who do they think they're kidding?

I'm really starting to hate ar.com. Can't they be real? Just for once?

"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."

My God!

I spend an afternoon playing with Mae and away from the computer, and the world goes crazy.

Oh well! At least being a Roddick fan is never boring.

no doubt they'll get their poo together because our very AmazingAndy is playing and because it's so "wow"ed by the tennis world, im sure they'll be capitalizing on the sudden interest in the tournament
