Re: Wishing at the Wells

LOL. Nice thread title, star.

"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: Wishing at the Wells

Draw is done on Tuesday, 1pm local time (according to the IW site). Play in the men's draw starts next Friday and since all seeds will get 1st round byes, Andy & co won't be playing until next weekend I guess.

(Slightly OT: it's amazing that with two weeks to play a tournament, how they can still schedule semis and final on consecutive days. What's wrong with these folks?)

Re: Wishing at the Wells

Wow, I was just going to come into this thread correcting my mistake about the draw release thing. And I find that jtipson has corrected it already. More people come in here and read than I thought.

Hope you don't mind me making the correction , I was only on the IW site yesterday checking to see when the draw came out myself. Normally when I post first thing in the morning GMT there's nobody else around because the US is asleep .

Have to say that I like reading the Andy forum (his and Roger's are the only ones I generally read), even though I'm not a big fan of his. But you guys have a lot going on here.


And Wyvern, yeah, I know the US Open does the back-to-back scheduling too. <rant> It sucks. Last September the USTA was even talking about extending the US Open to make the scheduling better. Well, they don't need to - every other GS gets manages to schedule the same number of matches within 2 weeks and give the finalists at least one day off, so they could too if they wanted to. But unfortunately they let TV and revenue rule, even when it hurts the players. That's pants. At least for IW/Miami the semis are only best of three. </rant>

Re: Wishing at the Wells

Too bad jackson the Masters Series finals should always be best of 5 sets, but Mr Advertising Dollar /TV revenue rules the way with some tournaments.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
