LOL I love you, Nat.

I bet Andy's pumped for Monte Carlo Roland Garros Houston.

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.

Re: Loving the mud! (the Clay Season thread)

So Andy (and his brother) are doing an exhibition thing with the Bryans on May 3 in Charleston

http://www.familycirclecup.com/pages...331170647.html

That's 5 days before Rome starts.

I mean, I don't even know what to say.

i didn't realize the Roddicks and Bryans could get more stupid. It doesn't matter where Andy and twins are ranked.

Even though I bash the clay and it's elitist snobs in GM a lot, I actually like the clay season. After months of fast court playing and seeing the same players over and over again, the clay season is nice respite from the usual. Plus Roger won't be as dominating as he is throughout the rest of the year. And it will be interesting to see if Nadal can defend all his points.

Clay season is the only time I actually pay attention to players like Puerta and Mutis, and it's short enough so that I don't start to get bored with them (hardly any of them have any kind of personality, save Nadal). I also like the fact that they keep playing even when it rains, as opposed to Wimbledon where two raindrops shuts all the courts down for five hours.

Noelle, re: your comments about keeping your blog updated, it's hard work isn't it? No wonder Pro Tennis Fan said she was going to give her blog up this year, it's a lot more work than I thought, and probably more for you because you are covering tennis in general, both men's and women's, while I focus mostly on Andy. Still, it took me two days to finally update my blog about the Ferrer match and when I did I got messages from people asking why it took so long and if I was mad at Andy for losing. No, I wasn't mad. It's been very busy at work, and I like to get my thoughts organized before I spout off on my blog, anyway. Plus, finding all those links and photos makes my eyes go cross-eyed.

Re: FamilyCircleCup, I don't see anything wrong with Andy & and the Bryans doing an exhibition five days before Rome?

Daring prediction: watch Andy get Verdasco again in the second round.

"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."

Because they should be in Europe practicing there to be properly prepared?????? Playing an exhibition on green clay is not gonna help Andy get better results. Obviously he's not gonna go to Europe to play MC (well we figured he wouldn't anyway) and come back to Charleston to do this and go back. So after Houston he has like 3 weeks until Rome - will he even be hitting on red clay at all for three weeks? Sorry, I think that's disgusting

oh the twins are doing alright in the rankings, with all those finals...
It's Andy we should worry about; if he fails to defend Houston, Ivan will pass him... once out of the top 4, it means Andy gets hell in QF in slams, instead of SF... If Andy doesn't defend Wimby final (thx to his dismal performance this year dropping his seed) he'll fall further, if he gets caught below the top 8, he gets hell in the 4th round instead...

Re: Loving the mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Well I like the clay. What can I say? Kind of spices stuff up every few months I guess. And you have to think differently as a player out there too but you all know that

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: Loving the mud! (the Clay Season thread)

Well, "disgusting" seems like a strong or inappropriate word to use.

I think Andy should hire a hypnotist to convince him that all the clay matches he'll be playing is for Davis Cup. Then maybe we'll start seeing some decent results from him.

And Naldo may actually have a point: this new topspin crap he's been using may actually benefit him on the clay.

"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 ...
