It would be nice if Team Mandy played a few more events. They might even have a shot at qualifying for the TMC.

Re: IW Final: Fish/Roddick def Mirnyi/Ram 3-6 6-1 14-12

I can't imagine Andy doing it often. He's gotta be tired. I can see why they're a good team though, I saw Mardy play doubles with james a few times and Mardy loses all that sour negative stressful stuff he so often has in singles, it helps him relax. With their serves, Mardy's returns and volleys, and their groundstrokes, it makes sense. Plus they're friends so they have a good on-court rapport. Their second title together But it definitely would be nice.... my two fave players Such a shame no one was able to see this

I would argue this is better for Andy's game than hours spent on the practise court. He should consider doing this for Miami and the clay season to see how it goes.

But you're right, I know he won't.

Re: IW Final: Fish/Roddick def Mirnyi/Ram 3-6 6-1 14-12

Yes, I agree with you, it's especially good for his transition game which we saw earlier today is the worst part of his game left (IMO). It's definitely good early in a tourney especially these longer ones with days off, obviously playing an hour long doubles match is better than practicing for an hour.... but to play 2 matches yesterday and 2 today....he's got to be a little tired, even if it's just mentally. He's taking a fairly long break after Miami b/c of his wedding and whatnot, so he might well play doubles in the clay masters events, he has before.

Mandy.




"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."

Viva Andy! Viva Mardy!

Some people in the crowd were calling the team Fish n' Rod. Kind of cute.

Anyway, you all know the story. Mardy just could not stop smiling. When the announcer asked Andy if they would continue in doubles, Andy took a deep breath and said: We'll see? With that kind of question at the end. Mardy said he would love to, and it was always fun with Andy. Andy said Mardy carried him. True to some extent, but Andy did well too. The crowd was so in to it. It was a great finish to the day.
