Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

I think it might have been Fee, because I've read it, and I usually only read stuff that is posted here.

"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

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Thought so, that's why I asked first.

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.

I don't know what to think of this? Go Andy?

Vinnay, on the other hand, has plenty on his mind....

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

He hit poor forehands/volleys/backhands/serves? Any common reason for those problems?

Lack of knee bend.
Not maintaining a trim body.
No desire to win tournaments (satisfaction with a quarterfinal/semifinal finish)
Everyone laughs at his disastrous techniques

Confidence gets you nowhere without long hours with repetitive tennis lessons and many matches. A great sparring partner didn't show up?
You think he's interested in winning Slams year after year by:
1 Giving lame excuses like "I have to help my friends" + "I didn't plan to be a pro player" +
+ "I have to rest for Davis Cup" and "I can do nothing. You've gotta applaud opponents"
2 being a sobbing, spoiled brat who can't get free trophies.
Andy loves being a fool in front of opponents
(Indianapolis, Indian Wells, Miami, Cincinnati, US Open --ring a bell?). Ljubicic loves this.
3 Treating tennis as a joke hobby
(nonchalantly arrive late at tournaments because team competition/TV shows are bigger priorities,
play with injuries to embarrass himself,
throw away matches,
donate points, games, etc.)

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Gilbert rejects Roddick criticism
Brad Gilbert says recent criticism of Andy Roddick is unfair.

The American has not won a Grand Slam title since the 2003 US Open and recently went out of the Australian Open in the last 16.

But Roddick's former coach Gilbert told BBC Sport: "More than anything, his situation is about how much better Federer has been since 2003.

"He's like the Tiger Woods of tennis. Without Federer, Andy would be winning a whole lot more tournaments."

Federer has ended Roddick's Wimbledon hopes for three years in a row, including the last two finals.

"Let's remember, Andy is still number three in the world," said Gilbert.

"The two in front, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, are outstanding players, and Andy is only 23, a year younger than Federer, so let's give him time."

Like Andy said, "Brad has genius skills.http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/4686428.stm

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Brad.

Roger is the least of Andy's problems right now. His early exits at RG, UOS and AO had nothing to do with Roger. Unless Brad thinks Andy's mental problems are because of Roger? I don't think so.

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Why are so many arrogant people giving Andy faint praise?
Several "Brad's perfect for Andy. Roddick's a lowlife" bandwagon jumpers. PatMc thought he was smart by pointing out Brad's constant need to prove how invaluable he was to ESPN (lied about Andy, Brad being a fake, patriotic Roddick supporter + giving bold-faced, false scouting reports on TV). PatMc is no different from Brad.

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

I have to admit that I'm thrilled. Andy hasn't accomplished as much as he should have under Dean.

It was a great decision by Andy.
