Re: "Get off my lawn, Federer!!" (Andy's Wimbledon thread)

Ok, now that we have the thread name out of the way (good name btw), I am looking forward to the draw. I guess seeds are announced tomorrow and the draw comes out on Friday, correct?

Need ideas for a new signature...

Good to see you guys have a sense of humour; I like it. Maybe a continuation of your title can be sth like: ...I just watered it w Cheetos. [I know, it's dumb, but I like to continue the Pandy Cheetos eating thingy... for his strength].

People have accused us (andy fans) of a lot of things, but a lack of sense of humor isn't really one of them

It is practice week here at Wimbledon. Andy played well at Queens and just came up a little bit short against James Blake who played a great match in the semi-finals. We are now fully focused on getting ready for the start of Wimbledon next Monday. It really is a nice week here at Wimbledon. It is pretty quiet around the grounds of Wimbledon and you can walk around and enjoy the club in a state of peace. Because come Monday it will be the crazy place Wimbledon is during the tournament. It also is nice right now because the practice courts are not packed.

As we get closer to the weekend things will pick up and get more busy around the grounds of Wimby. Andy is getting in some good practices and using the week to get in the gym and be as strong and fit as possible for next Monday. Lets hope the weather stays nice like it is here right now and. Wimbledon is so much more enjoyable when it is not raining. Hope everyone is doing well.

This Fed fan likes it.

Fan of: Federer Safin Haas Nadal Santoro Agassi Tursunov's blog

"I couldn't even tell you who the No. 1 ranked tennis player in the world is right now," Federer said. "It's probably me, still. It is, isn't it?" The Onion

Russophilic member of the MTF Perv Squad--objectifying Tarpischev, Kafelnikov, and Volkov like whoa.

A sense of humor (as well as a strong sense of hope) is an absolute requirement to be an Andy fan.

Cheetos are one of the all time great foods (even as you get old and have to switched to the baked version).

Re: "Get off my lawn, Federer!!" (Andy's Wimbledon thread)



Roddick hopes his luck will change this year

LONDON (Reuters) - Andy Roddick has an enviable record on grass and possesses all the weapons to succeed at Wimbledon. All he needs now is a slice of good fortune.

Backed by his thunderbolt serve, the American has displayed his flair on the lush green lawns by lifting the oversized Stella Artois trophy three years running.

Each time he has gone on to reach the latter stages at Wimbledon. Each time he has run into an impenetrable brick wall named Roger Federer.

For the first time in four years, Roddick arrives at the All England Club without the Stella Artois title in his possession and the Nebraskan believes that it could turn out to be a good omen when the grasscourt grand slam begins on Monday.

"I feel like I'm serving well. I feel like I'm returning well," said the 23-year-old Roddick, who followed up his last-four showing in 2003 with two successive runs to the final.

"Coming to your favourite surface and coming to one of your favourite tournaments, the recipe's there for something good to happen."

Roddick wants to make up ground at Wimbledon after his claycourt season ended abruptly with an ankle injury. He will also be aiming to end a 10-slam drought for the U.S. men.

Having lifted the 2003 U.S. Open title just two months after Federer's debut grand slam success at Wimbledon, Roddick had been expected to challenge the Swiss for many of the top awards.

While Federer's trophy cabinet now displays seven grand slam prizes, Roddick has failed to add any major silverware to his collection.

The lopsided nature of their rivalry has irked Roddick.

"It's tough knowing that you're a better player than you were two or three years ago but not having a lot to show for it," said the world number five, who has beaten Federer just once in 11 meetings.

MEASURING STICK

"It's not fun losing in a grand slam final, especially in a tournament that you just want to win so bad. Just not being able to match somebody, it's frustrating.

"I think I've proven over the last three years that I probably am the second best grasscourt player.

"Roger's the measuring stick ... I don't know many people in history who would beat him. I just hope he gets bored or something."

Since Federer is unlikely to get bored of winning anytime soon, Roddick knows he will have to rely on his own strengths.

He adopted the right approach for a set and a half in the 2004 final when his frenzied attack put a spanner in Federer's usually impeccable timing. But the world number one's mesmeric skills eventually doused Roddick's fireworks.

That was the last time the American has even taken a set off the Swiss.

Considering he has not won a title this year, Roddick knows he will have his work cut out if he is to become the first American man to hold aloft the famous gold cup since Pete Sampras in 2000.

"I would give anything to win Wimbledon," declared Roddick, who has a 37-4 record on the slick surface since 2003.

He is putting so much pressure on himself I am really afraid of what it will do to him if he doesn't do well at Wimbledon.

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.
Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light
