Re: The "Clay is for girls!" Rome thread
As long as your "I'm Neither Spanish nor Talented Enough....So I'll stay as a Lucky Overpaid, Pale White American DC Hero. I'm Past Peak Age and an Overweight, Stupid Modest Loser" act is alive, you've no time left.
Your serve is a joke compared to 2 years ago.
You're at basketball games, exhibitions and the Playboy mansion
more often than on clay and hardcourt (keep hoping for Wimbledon wins;
you're still In Love with Ignorant Bliss.... Don't try political correctness...it never worked. Then again, your conservative folks love no changes!
You could've lost in the 2nd round last year....Be a media muppet crying in front of Federer, Spaniards + journeymen. Give excuses and get reassurance from Bro and Mommy).
Q. In your mind, you think you can get back on top?
ANDY RODDICK: On top, I mean, I don't know. I mean, we'll see. I'm gonna try. With Roger playing the way he is and able to play on all surfaces, I think it will be difficult for anybody.
But, you know, as far as Nadal goes, you know, if I'm playing well on any surface but clay, you know, I feel okay about my chances.
Q. But "clay," capital letters?
ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, well there's -- fortunately, we can play seven months a year on clay, right? My favorite surface, I can play about three weeks.
Q. What's the feeling when you come over here to this European tour? Is it dread? Is it hope? What's the feeling?
ANDY RODDICK: It just depends, Bud. There are some years where I've played so many matches early on in the year, you know, on hard and stuff that you know you kind of have to take more of a break after the hard court season. I've come over here not feeling prepared for this stuff.
But this year I haven't played many matches, and I had three weeks off after Houston to really train on it. So this is the first time in my career I really, really needed - needed - to do well on this surface.
