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

Good idea Andy. Lets skip the Masters that plays the closest to RG because judging from your past results its safe to say that you have a handle on it.

I guess Roddick must be the greatest player to ever play the game.

Yes definitely bad timing but maybe there is more to it? Obviously I don't know. I am just trying to look for a silver lining or some such nonsense here.

Just stop sucking on clay. If he would refrain from that, his schedule would look awesome year after year.

But wouldn't playing a proper schedule and playing a lot on it and practicing on RED Clay and preparing properly for the big tourneys by getting there way in advance... wouldn't that all assist him in his quest to stop sucking on clay I mean, playing Houston then practicing on green clay for 3 weeks and getting to Rome 4 days early is not gonna help him stop sucking on clay

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

Kind of off-topic but I was wondering if anyone knew how many challenges Andy has made so far and how many he's won? I have it at 0-2 but I have the impression that he made 3 challenges? Anyone know?

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

He went 1-2 for the whole tourney I believe - he definitely got one right against Ferrer

He's not going to win a title.
It wouldn't matter how "controversial" and "unproven"
my posts look. It's not like Andy's so politically correct, angelic and uncontroversial.

I think that would be very easy in theory since clay tastes horrible. But then I think Andy likes the taste of clay which is why he sucks on it so much.

On hiatus, just because.
