Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Guys:

Just got the word this evening...it's official...Andy Roddick has dismissed Dean Goldfine as his coach effective immediately. Andy's brother John Roddick will assume the coaching duties full time!!!

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Okay, I know some of you are going to jump on SA, but remember she (he?) has been right before, so let's just wait and see what happens.

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: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Sagroove, where did you hear this?

I'm shocked.

and I shouldn't be.

"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."

I cannot reveal my sources but PLEASE trust me, it is 100% factual. I am sure it will hit the media very soon possibly by tomorrow.

I know many in here think I am always full of rubbish BUT everytime I have posted something before the media does, I have been 100% right.

Trust me guys, it is 100% factual.

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Did he call London and hire Adam?


Just kidding. My first reaction to this is dismay. To me, it means that Andy may not be seeing the real problem (himself). I don't know what to think of John, I know nothing of his tennis knowledge. I had a good impression of Ginger when I met her (which someone has since tried to dissuade me of for some reason). That's all I have to say about that (for now).

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

Oh, I believe you Sagroove. Definitely.

So Fat brotha John will be Andy's new coach, eh? I like the idea. I like it because I've heard that John was a more talented player than Andy in his day, and after seeing John with Andy at Wimbledon I had wondered why he didn't coach his little brother? John Roddick is capable of doing everything I've been wanting to see: of getting in Andy's face and not being afraid to piss him off; of lighting a fire under his ass.

The news hasn't even been confirmed and I'm already excited at the prospect.

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

If this is true then it's a great move. I'm not sure how good big brother is but it's worth a shot. Hopfully Big Bro can help with Andy's mental toughness and actually form a solid game plan. A plan B would be nice instead of standing far behind the baseline and being defensive. Dean's had his chance to help Andy but it wasn’t enough. If the real problem is just Andy shouldn't a coach be able to help with that? Andy doesn't seen to be a stubborn person. He followed Dean and Brad's advice with varying results.

Andy is in a bit of slump. When that happens change is often good. I'm not placing all the blame on Dean but he is part of the problem. I feel that Dean's taken Andy as far as he could and now is a good time to part ways.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

I'm still not sure what my opinion on this is. I mean obviously, what Andy has now isn't working, but it's not Dean's fault. A coach cannot magically make Andy play better.

I still think he needs a psychologist. And if this means no more Max, then

Re: Roddick Fires Goldfine!!!

As long as Andy goes back to his POWER game and takes risks again with his massive forehand and stops with this pansy shit, he can change coaches 282034 a year for all i care. It is troublesome to see so many coaching changes in a fairly short period of time, but he did gain something with every change of coach (he matured big time with Gilbert and started to realize how to use his strengths, he became more solid and much more fit with goldfine) so hopefully his brother can do all of that and thensome?

Andy Roddick.Fernando Verdasco.Richard Gasquet.Tommy Haas
