Montanes then Ramirez-Hidalgo? Their pictures are in the dictionary next to "Spanish Dirtballers"

The organisers will make sure it's hard green clay. Oh well, I guess we don't really expect Andy to collect many points in the next season anyway. Whatever he gets it's a bonus.

Re: "No idea what to call it b/c the Houston draw sucks" clay thread

Well the good news is that he probably won't play on Sunday, so he can rest a bit and get to Houston fully fit. I just like to see him do well there b/c he loves it there so much and it's the tourney's last year there. it's basically his hometown tourney and has had a ton of great memories there, so yeah.

Andy's game plan on clay this year: Stand as far back behind the baseline as possible. 10 feet for hardcourt, 20 for clay.
Where is the barfing smilie when you need one.

Like father, like son

what are you talking about Deb? Andy is practically a dirtballer

Have you seen his loopy forehands and horrid court positioning?

Then he'll definitely go out & lose the first match.
