A nice clean new start for Andy in the city on the Alster Sea, Hamburg Hansa Stadt.

05-05-2004, 02:24 AM

Let's hope you're right about the fresh clean start.

Please don't mar the clean slate. :)

05-05-2004, 02:32 AM
lol yeah...please don't!!!!!!!!

ok I've decided that all I'm asking of Andy is to win 2 matches in Hamburg. Is this too much to ask? Has he ever made it to the third round at Hamburg? It can't be THAT hard, can it!?

GeorgeWhitler's so unthreatened by Andy's clay game that he needs to tease Andy's fans. awww Tennis Warehouse forum also has a guy named Deuce who rambled
about being unbiased too.
Suffering from Roddick ENVY. :haha:

Should we join George's Infamous Name Cult?
This April Fool's day man fell deeply for young Andy.
Don't share your Andy love with him too much. His ego might explode!!!!!!

lol heya!

05-05-2004, 04:46 AM
Wise advise from Heya, Deb. :)

05-05-2004, 04:50 AM

Andy Withdraws From Tennis Masters Hamburg
by: webmaster

5/6/2004 -- Due to soreness in his left knee, Andy Roddick withdrew today from next week's Tennis Masters Hamburg. Andy has returned home to Florida where he will spend the next few days recovering. He will then begin his preparations for the French Open.

damnit it...the knee is a factor i guess :sad:

goddamnit :sad: I'm glad he gets to go home a little but he better get to Paris really early if he's going to play - not just two or three days.

Damnit damnit damnit. Andy's gonna be 0-2 on European clay this year isn't he.

05-07-2004, 12:19 AM
ugh ugh ugh the more I think about this the more disappointed I am. I don't see how he'll be able to win a match at the French with absolutely no match practice. And his luck he'll get a really horrible draw to boot. :sad: :sad:

05-07-2004, 12:21 AM
too bad :o :o

he won't show up in Hamburg :sad:

05-07-2004, 12:22 AM
are you going to the tourney Neely?

gah this just SUCKS.

05-07-2004, 12:23 AM
aaww deb :hug:
i just want him to get to the second round of RG which i think isn't gonna happen :sad:

05-07-2004, 12:28 AM
no, finally I didn't plan to go there but I was thinking about it long time as I knew that I am going to have a very easy next week and a visit in Hamburg wouldn't have been a kind of problem

lol, you see... in the end I am finally doomed to watch the matches as a couch potatoe on TV at home :rolls:

05-07-2004, 12:30 AM
LOL well sometimes just watching on tv is nice :) I like watching tennis on tv!

yea, Mani.... that's the problem. All I really want is the third round, so I guess I'm wishing for a little more than you but still, winning 2 matches isn't THAT hard is it? LOL.

I know this isn't his fault, but it just gahhhhh... I keep defending him, saying he really does want to improve, blah blah blah and then things just keep happening to prevent that. Plus it's so frustrating to see such valuable opportunities to add rankings points in a season where he's normally not done well. I really thought this clay season would be different :sad: :sad:

05-07-2004, 12:31 AM
Too bad Neely.

Where do you live? Sorry if I already asked that.

05-07-2004, 12:46 AM
Where do you live?
exactly in the opposite corner of Germany, in the south-east part of the country, about 30-40 minutes by car southwest to Munich

05-07-2004, 12:47 AM
Such horrendous luck.
He's so damn naive!
I'm surprised he said nothing till today.
Why do we have to wait so long for him to play well!!!!!
Lifting people and standing at the balcony made his knee worse.
Damn bad shape!!!! :shout:

05-07-2004, 12:48 AM
Oh nooooooo :bigcry: :sobbing:

05-07-2004, 02:22 AM

Deb don't get your hopes down, seriously I think this will help him. He gets away from Rome first of all,:fiery:, now he can clear his mind and forget about what went on there, now it's just a question about how his knee is. I think it'll be allright, now he's got more than 14 days before Roland Garros starts. His knee should heal up fine, and he can really practice on the clay. This sort of reminds me of when he crashed and burned at RG 03 and went straight to the grass in London, and look at what happened, he improved a shitload on the grass and was the dominant grass court player alongside Federer. I just hope his knee problems aren't serious and it's just that it's precaution. Had it been serious I think we would have heard more from him or about the situation, so my mind tells me its just some precaution. He'll get pased that 1st round match at RG i guarantee it:rocker2:

oh and :hug: to Andy

05-07-2004, 02:27 AM
I really hope you are right Naldo. You and tangy always come along with the calm reassuring words :) I'm kind of glad I'll be mega-busy starting tomorrow through next Wednesday or so.... and from Sunday afternoon til we arrive home I won't be able to read ANYTHING at all so I think that total break from everything will be really good.

But anyway.... again I hope you are right. He has to do well again on grass - he has a good deal of points to defend what with the Queens title and Wimby SF!

Please Andy, just win ONE MATCH at the FO. Before I really wanted you to win 2 matches and make R32 but now I'll be satisfied if you just win won

I'll be looking for him to do even better than what you want for him Deb. ;) I want at least a round of 16 from him at the French. But really, AT THE VERY LEAST he needs to make it past the 1st round. It will be some consolation prize at least!

05-07-2004, 02:43 AM
At least with Andy's pullout from Hamburg you won't be going crazy wondering what's happening during his matches, Deb. ;) :lol:

05-07-2004, 02:45 AM
lol tangy that's true....

(I have a feeling I would've ended up caling star from podunk mississippi or whatever and asking her what was happening LMFAO!)

05-07-2004, 08:08 PM
*does the Dance of the Good Draw Gods* :dance:

I'm almost sure he'll have the worst of possible draws...
I know, i'm pessimist... :banghead:

something tells me that... nooo... i hope i'm wrong...:awww: :unsure:

gosh. i'm weird :retard: :silly:
