Re: Coach Roddick

Hehe. I wish I could've seen that. Who won?

"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: Coach Roddick

Scratch that, this was in my tennis-x newsletter

"Brad Gilbert beat Michael Chang 6-4 in their one-set exhibition Monday night at San Jose."

Re: Coach Roddick

heeeeeeeeeeere we go...... sounds like fun times for sure
----------
Roddick rides Gilbert
By Geoff Lepper - MARIN INDEPENDENT JOURNAL

SAN JOSE -- When it was all over, Andy Roddick commandeered the microphone for one last good-natured poke at his coach, Brad Gilbert.

"All I know is, my coaching record's better than Brad's now," Roddick said. "I'm undefeated."

That's mostly thanks to Gilbert, the 42-year-old from Piedmont who overcame an 11-year handicap to best fellow retiree Michael Chang 6-4 in an amiable, chatter-filled exhibition for charity Monday night at the Siebel Open.

"You didn't miss a step, BG," tour veteran Justin Gimelstob announced to a postmatch press conference. "You had that forehand shimmy down the line working like old times."

Gilbert was sick over the state of his game at the start of the match, even though he had worked out Saturday and Sunday with former student and current Marin neighbor Andre Agassi.

Gilbert lost the first game -- "Oh no, I am really going to get shelled," he thought to himself -- but a solid forehand winner in the second game helped him regain the technique that led to 20 tournament titles, including a win at this event in 1989.

"That helped relax me," Gilbert said. "It was like getting the first hit in a baseball game."

Gilbert followed up with some impressive work attacking the net, prompting Roddick to exclaim at one point, "So that's how you serve and volley." ( )

That was hardly the only comment from the loquacious Roddick. The 21-year-old, who hosted 'Saturday Night Live' in November, clearly relished a chance to turn his humor against the coach who helped him win a U.S. Open crown and ascend to the No.1 ranking late last year.

Any inhibitions disappeared when Roddick was given a live PA microphone.

After the changeover between the third and fourth games: "Brad just told me he was about to cramp. ... Everywhere." ( )

After Chang broke Gilbert to even the match at 2-2: "Way to lose your break, Brad. Just do five pushups, please."

After Chang pushed Gilbert farther and farther back before closing the point with a forehand winner: "Brad, you're almost in Mexico hitting those backhands. The umpire had to move, actually."

Both the Andy Roddick Foundation and the Chang Family Foundation received donations of $10,000 on behalf of the players.

"I wanted it to be light-hearted and just to go out and relax," said Chang, who retired after last year's U.S. Open.

Re: Coach Roddick

Some more from the SF Chronicle. Sounds like Andy was in really rare form LOL
------
Men are living in the moment

Dwight Chapin, Chronicle Senior Writer

Opening day was a compelling mix of the past and the present.

Before the night matches, there was a ceremony honoring 14 former U.S. Davis Cup players -- Art Larsen, Vic Seixas, Tom Brown, Ted Schroeder, Kramer, Barry MacKay, Erik Van Dillen, Martin, Brad Gilbert, Michael Chang, Justin Gimelstob, Rick Leach, Dent and James Blake, along with the three members of the 2004 U.S. team -- Andy Roddick, Robby Ginepri and Mardy Fish -- who, coming off a win last weekend over Austria, all are entered in the Siebel Open.

In a nice touch, the current trio jogged around the pavilion floor carrying an American flag, just before the playing of the national anthem.

The then-and-now theme continued in the first match of the night session, a charity exhibition featuring a pair of former tournament champions, Gilbert and Chang, both of whom are retired.

Gilbert's very vocal coach, throughout the match, was Roddick, the No. 1 seed here this year, who obviously relished the role reversal with Gilbert, who normally coaches him.

Roddick sat on the sidelines, microphone in hand, and not only offered Gilbert pointed instructions and criticism, but did a more-or-less running commentary with the crowd, showing a sense of humor (perhaps developed in a host's stint on "Saturday Night Live") that should stand him in good stead when he decides he's had enough tennis.

At one point, chair umpire Mark Cook ruled that a serve by Chang was a "let," but Roddick said, "I'm overruling you."

Roddick, who thus gave the point (and a game) to Chang, added, "I have always wanted to do that."

It turned out that it didn't matter to the eventual outcome. Gilbert held on to win the one-set match 6-4, and earned $10,000 for "Kids in Distress," a charity Roddick supports. Tournament director Bill Rapp then announced that $10,000 also would go to the Michael Chang Scholarship Fund.

Chang, in his prime perhaps tennis' most intense competitor, was a cheerful foil throughout the match. Like everyone else, he's aware that Roddick set a record with a 150-mile-per-hour serve against the Austrians. After connecting on a 112-mph ace against Gilbert, Chang turned to Roddick and said, "That was only 38 miles an hour slower than yours."

Re: Coach Roddick

Another barb, from tennisreporters.net:
----
Andy Roddick did a running commentary for the crowd throughout the Gilbert-Chang match. His best line: "Hey BG, just so you feel good about yourself, do you want me to set the radar on kilometers per hour?"
