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

common sense I guess? He played it last year, and I doubt he'd bother going to Germany to play Dusseldorf if he isn't gonna play Hamburg....

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

Yeah, if Andy misses Hamburg he would really deserve a collective bitch slapping from all of us. One planned dismissal of a Masters is barely acceptable, skipping two for no reason is completely unforgiveable.

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

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

As far as we know he has no plans to miss it. I can get pissed at Andy with the best of them but get's give him the benefit of the doubt on this one unless and until he pulls out

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

That was one of my most poorly written posts ever. I was actually agreeing with you, Andy will play Hamburg, of course. He's played it every year and I don't see him skipping it this year.

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

oh I know I was just saying

He didn't play in 2004 but.. we forgive him for that one.

Of course, I'd actually rather he play Monte Carlo than Hamburg. Those conditions there are so bad it's not even really great preparation for RG. Monte Carlo is probably the closest

But whatever.

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

Was 2004 the year of the fire in Rome? Yeah, that one was excused, he had a note.

I figured you understood my post, but it was still poorly written. I wish I knew what the deal with Monte Carlo was, it can't just be scheduling there has to be more to it. I know one doubles player who went once and was so completely unimpressed by the whole tournament that he said he would never go back, but I don't remember why. This intrigues me.

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

Yea it was.

Maybe that has something to do with it, maybe those guys just don't enjoy it there for whatever reason, figure they can get one week off at home all in a row and they've played houston and gotten some matches on red clay and they'll just show up in rome ready to go. I'm actually ok with Andy skipping MC, but I wish that he'd go over a week BEFORE rome and play one of the smaller tourneys then.

or something non-tennis related.
Why would his brother not realize or not care that Andy's lack of passion, poor footwork and
overmuscular, slower body will lead him nowhere? Do you believe playing w/Ginepri in Germany will make Andy love tennis? He's afraid of hurting his loved ones; he's depressed as hell...even while he played Davis Cup.

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

When you think of all the diversions over the years, parties, charity dos, exhibition matches, girl friends, hanging out with friends, TV appearances etc. it must make life look a whole lot more fun off the tennis court than on it. Once a tennis tournament has to fit in with those other activities Roddick has shown that he will offload the tournament (cf Shanghai v an exhibition match).

The clay season outside America is too much like hard work so he'll pay lip service to being there for a while, because he's supposed to be a professional tennis player. Then he'll turn up for Queens and Wimbledon trying to recapture lost glory, but may well find that a lost work ethic, previous defeats to other players ranked lower than him and intermittent motivation prove his downfall for good.

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

I'm tired of the congratulations for his family and friends because they're happy and satisfied (his mom's unconcerned because Andy's supposed to be left to make his OWN schedules and tennis choices and somehow John will save his career).
In contrast, he and his family can't stand hearing criticism about him; he only listens to advice from people he knows (PMc, Americans).
It's taboo that Andy behaves wiser than older people.
Comments "do nothing but hit crap out of the ball" and
"geniuses move in slow motion...they can't lose to me" "He's a legend...I'm a goof"
+ "I'm slower minded" took their toll on him.

Andy learns nothing as he attends sport award shows as a humiliated loser + parties at Hugh Hefner's (it's not funny anymore). The pain on his face was devastating.
The media and fans hate to say the painful truth about his life & relationships, but they still pay to watch him lose.

Do we know why Andy pulled out of MC? I just saw that he wasn't in the draw in GM...

Because he didn't want to play. He hasn't played for years. None of the Americans are playing, they didn't give a reason. We can only guess as to why.
