Fumus, you are a poet and you don't know it!

I don't know what's up with Spadea these days. Could it be his pact with the devil?

yea, I would be sure he was on his way out he is 30yrs old and playing his best tennis what the hell is going on here? It's like he's taken after some other peoples examples ala El Anouyi and Agassi

Re: Not tryin' to be rude but who is this Spadea dude?

He played this well several years ago, and then he took a nose dive and actually set the record for the most losses in a row. He became a joke. Then he went back to the challengers and rebuilt his confidence and slowly started pulling himself up last year through qualies and then results in the main draw.

Re: Not tryin' to be rude but who is this Spadea dude?

Do I think it will be tough, yea I think it will be really tough. I know that Roddick is the better player and Spadea must know that too. Roddick is faster, hits the groundies harder and has a bigger serve. It's just Spadea is going to force Andy to beat him. Andy needs to play well. I orginally had Spadea picked for this match, then I had Roddick in straights, so I keep changing my mind it's a toss up. It really is. Roddick has the talent, Spadea has been playing great tennis so that is the matchup.

It's gonna be tight and definitely will be a popcorn match.

Oh, and I'm sure Andy is getting to know Vince intimately now (no, not like that).

Re: Not tryin' to be rude but who is this Spadea dude?

IMO the match will come down to Andy's serve. 56% or whatever first serves in against a great returner just will not cut it. He'll have to be close to 70% IMO to win. Either that or have the returning/volleying/groundie match of his life.

ewwwwwwwww

I want Andy to win, and I sort of want to watch the match, but watching Spadea play tennis..........

Someone said he had changed his annoying service motion. That would be a plus.

It wasn't a popcorn match. And I had my popcorn ready.

lmfao Jace. I much prefer the result we got to a popcorn match. I only like popcorn matches when I don't care who wins.

No popcorn match, sorry Jace. Guess we'll have to wait for the coria-roddick final for that.

"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."

Me too. Sometimes it's "whatever it takes for Andy to win". lol
