Re: The "Fire It Up, Andy!" Indian Wells Thread

Good luck to Andy at IW, i hope his break helped him short out his issues. At this point i don't care about the draw at all, i just want to see Andy attain his level from Cincy last year. Crosses fingers

Re: The "Fire It Up, Andy!" Indian Wells Thread

I'd prefer he attain his level from Cincy THREE years ago

I agree, but still his performance over Ferrero and Hewitt would be a big improvement over what he has done this year so far. Still, sometimes mental issues are changed quite abruptly and you see huge changes in attitude and performance. Double-crosses fingers

I agree Merton, I think Andy's form at Cincy last year was the last time I saw Andy playing anywhere near like the old Andy--smart and fast and powerful. He still wasn't terribly confident but he pulled through some tough matches. And of course, beating Hewitt was icing on the cake. His reaction afterwards was precious.

Hopefully this week off will have given Andy some time to regroup and think about what he wants to accomplish at IW. I don't want him playing in fear anymore. It's not right.

"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."

IMO he was playing better at Lyon and Paris in the fall, before he got hurt. At the beginning of this season he even mentioned that he felt like after the USO last year he picked it up and was being more aggressive and he was. He didn't even drop serve at Lyon, didn't do anything unnecessary to extend matches like he's been doing, etc.

Yes, that's true. He was playing some great tennis then, too. Too bad I wasn't able to watch any of the Lyon matches.

Well I only saw the last set against Monfils that someone posted to download, but he was impressive in that. Plus he straight-setted Santoro and didn't lose serve to him so that's impressive. Plus, that match against Hrbaty in Paris right before he got hurt, I mean that was one of the best matches I've EVER seen him play. And then when he was hurt against Ferrer the way he fought was impressive, etc.

We know he has it in him, he just has to find it
