This was his attitude in Davis Cup, Rome and Hamburg. Paris's just a place to relax with friends.

He claimed "I don't move well on clay", (Brad Gilbert loved hearing that, as he believes Blake's greater on clay).

Yet, Andy ballooned to 197 pounds, stuffed himself with pizza and hotdogs (before the Chang 2001 FO match).

2 years ago, he was violently ill after cramming pizza in his stomach + stayed up at night with Lauren Bedford (the rebound "smiley girlfriend") the night before a French Open match with Todd Martin....too bad a clay courter didn't win the 1st match easily to end Andy's misery instead.
Heya, you have me in tears with this post. The stuffing himself with pizza and hotdogs had me going for the tissues.

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Can Andy drop to 6th in the rankings after the clay season? David will probably shoot ahead, Ljubicic is not that far behind and neither is Davydenko. James could also drop a couple of places with Gaudio and Coria closing in. Oh well.

Maybe, just maybe Andy plays above expectations and makes to the 4th round of each clay tourney and manages to keep his rankings high enought for Wimbledon.

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

He'll be 5 next week - David and Ljubicic already ahead of him. Davydenko lost early at Monte Carlo so he is a ways back already. He could drop to 6 but he will probably still be seeded 3 for wimby anyway b/c of the formula.

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Andy might even do well on clay. Who knows he makes to the 4th round at RG. I'm already assuming he will earn 1 solitary point from each mud tourney.

He could think "clay, Russia, clay, DC, clay, Marat, clay, DC, clay, champion, clay, USA DC champion...clay" to get some inspiration.

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

It wouldn't be wise seeding Andy 3rd, afterall he is still number 2 on grass and Rafa is no challenge on grass.
Is Andy playing Barcelona.......he can grind a few points.

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Valencia was last week, and no Andy's not playing any of the smaller Euro clay events.

The Wimby seeding will be done by the formula and I'm pretty sure Andy's too far back to be able to get the #2 seed.

Boo. I was thinking that would be true. The third seed isn't necessarily in the top half is he?

The Tennis Diet:
On the eve of the Roddick/Cilic match, my brother made Seafood Marinara. Can't eat it,
it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
I also did not eat Curry 'cos it rhymes with Murray.


I fangirl for Roddickulous, Youzhless and the Djoke.

Does it matter? Is Andy gonna make it to the semis anyway?

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

If Andy should win Queen's again this year then I would not doubt that Wimbledon would seed him No. 2 again.

"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."

Re: Fun in the boring mud! (the Clay Season thread)

If they use the same formula as they've used the past 2 years, I don't think it'd matter. I think Andy's too far behind Nadal to be seeded 2 even by the very grass-results friendly formula. They don't just pull the seedings out of a hat.

What he has to do is try to gain points on the clay season so he is closer to Rafa. But the odds of him grabbing a few hundred points on clay are.... almost negligible.

YES. It has been long enough since Andy last played a match for me to slip back into blind optimism, doncha know?

it's not part of the diet; it is enemy food. ie. Marin-ara Cilic.
