Lightbulb Best Andy Roddick matches?

Hey all!

As a relatively new Andy fan I am trying to build up my video/DVD collection of some of his best matches.

So far I have:

- 2001 QF US Open w/ Hewitt
- 2001 French Open w/ Chang
- 2003 QF Australian Open w/ El Anayou
- 2003 Queen's Club w/ Agassi
- 2003 Cincy final w/ Fish
- 2003 US Open w/ Nalbandian and Ferrero

That's it. I don't have any from 2002. I feel like I'm missing a whole bunch of great matches. Wasn't there one where he beat Pete Sampras? I don't have his Wimbledon match w/ Federer, either.

If anybody has any good match recommendations that I should definitely have on tape please let me know!

Thanks!

"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: Best Andy Roddick matches?

damn.... I don't have any of those. I suck!

In fact the only ones i've even SEEN are
- 2003 Cincy final w/ Fish
- 2003 US Open w/ Nalbandian and Ferrero

I'm still kicking myself for missing the AO. I'd love to have your tape/dvd collection LOL

Re: Best Andy Roddick matches?

I love everything you have listed, Tangerine. My fave of course was the AO match with Younes.

I'd also recommend:
-2002 U.S. Clay Court Championships F w/Sampras
-2002 U.S. Open 4th round w/Chela
-2003 Montreal SF w/Federer

Re: Best Andy Roddick matches?

My favorite Andy matches:

when he defeated Rogi for first time... it was really intense, anticipated... he had nothing to lose

also, winning the US Open... not so much I love the match--but love the end, his reaction, his emotion, the awestruck of his face--seeing a man cry!!

With each passing season, I discover new reason
SAMPRAS --> Rios --> KUERTEN --> Kafelnikov -->
Federer --> Hewitt --> RODDICK --> GONZALEZ -->
NALBANDIAN --> Benneteau --> Davydenko --> Mathieu -->
TURSUNOV --> Mantilla --> KIEFER --> NADAL -->
Karlovic --> Odesnik --> Stepanek --> Monfils -->
??

All great but add Friday's TMC @Houston vs Coria.
Tennis doesn't get better than that.

Re: Best Andy Roddick matches?

Thanks to everyone for their suggestions! I have been taping the Houston matches as well. Although I missed the last set of Andy's match against Shuettler and the award ceremony!

I was just rereading the original post and saw this.

The one where he beat Sampras was at the US Mens Clay Court in Houston and I don't know if that's generally even televised in the US (next year it'll be on the Tennis Channel).

As for the Wimbledon match, Andy totally got taken to school. Fed just whomped him (sort of like last night in the TMC SF except that at Wimby Andy was actually trying), definitely beautiful tennis but as an Andy fan and not a big Federer fan, it's not something I'd really like to watch ever again LOL

Re: Best Andy Roddick matches?

I saw that one live!!!!!

Bush came in during the middle of a point to take a seat.

That was a great tournament for me. I saw Coria live for the first time and I got to see Andy beat Sampras.

Re: Best Andy Roddick matches?

It was easy for me! Except I was really nervous that Sampras would win.

Andy's beating Samrpas early on was one of the first things I liked about him.
