Re: The "injuries still suck" RG thread

edit

Here's something more interesting: Roger's comments on the American men and clay. I love that Roger's the No. 1 player in the world and he has to deal with questions about Andy and James And I agree with his assessment that there's really no reason why Andy can't make it to the QFs with these draws he's been getting.

Q. Considering it's another tournament where there's no Americans in the second round here, no American men, what advice would you give to the United States Tennis Association to help remedy the problems we're having on clay?

ROGER FEDERER: Well, I mean, I don't know (smiling). I don't see it as a problem as serious as maybe you guys see it. The players, they know they can do good stuff here at the French Open. I really thought ?? actually, I believe if Andy would have been in good shape, I would have seen him at least in the quarters, honestly. You know, Blake beat a good player. Unfortunat ely, he lost today. I mean, they all know they can play on clay.

So I just think it's a matter of being able to back it up match after match, you know, giving yourself opportunit ies. And sometimes, you know, when you don't play enough clay court tournament s leading up to the French Open, that's hard to do. So maybe that's what they should be doing more often.

But, listen, I'm not going to start giving advice to the other players. They know what they've got to do for their games. I don't think the USTA has to do much.

Q. You think it's more bad luck than something systemic in the US?

ROGER FEDERER: I mean, it's obvious that they all grow up on hard court because that's the surface they have in the States. The weather allows it, too. It's normal that they feel much more comfortable on hard courts. You have also other players now, you know, who can't play on hard courts because of the movement and everything.

I mean, you have to give the Americans a break, too. They didn't grow up on this stuff, but they can still play on it, they can still be dangerous. It's just maybe they're not the big favorites like they are elsewheres.

"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 know Davydenko got to the semis at last year's Roland Garros, so I think the only way he can gain points is to make it to the final. Mario will gain points because he only made it to the third round last year. He'll probably crack the top ten.

Re: The "injuries still suck" RG thread

Thank you Tangy.

its odd, i mean what are the trainers supposed to do, stick a tongue depresser or something down his throat?

come to think of it why was he not heimliched? its supposed to force caught objects up.
thinking of the position, id believe he would be partial to a little of that.

Re: The "injuries still suck" RG thread

Well, the heimlich done right is actually quite dangerous and I've only ever heard about it being used when someone is actually choking (aka they can't breathe)...obviously rafa could breathe lol. What i found bizarre is that the trainer and doctor didn't do ANYTHING for him! I don't want to say he was faking but it arguably was like he just wanted to sit down for a couple minutes

No one could be worse than Tim Ryan. The other morning, the camera was showing the statute of Suzanne Lenglen at the front of Court Lenglen and Ryan was blathering about it being a statute of the Four Musketeers.

Mary Jo was rendered speechless.

Hopefully he can defend most/all of his grass points and then pick up some points at USO.

Classic Andy TV: Late Night with David Letterman

June 7th, 2006 05:53 pm
By Andyroddick.com Staff

What do Andy’s first serve and David Letterman’s top ten list have in common? “They’re something you can always go to. It’s always going to be funny,” Andy reveals.

In a black shirt and blue jeans with a distinctive large hole on the knee, Andy appeared on the ‘Late Night Show with David Letterman’ as a part of his media spin following his 2003 US Open victory.

“It has a nice ring to it. I never dreamed it would happen so I’m thrilled.” Andy divulges the feeling of joining a long list of legends, as the US Open champ. Andy shared with Letterman about his quick move from Nebraska, discussed the property of a hat as a “sun repelling device” and revelled in Pete Sampras’ retirement at the beginning of the tournament. “That was amazing,” Andy enthused, before joking it “was one less person to play this year.”

So while we prep up for Rome, take some time to visit our Photos/Videos section to re-live this, and more ‘Classic Andy TV’.
Once again they show themselves up for being the geniuses that they are
