If he was so badly injured, why didn't he retire? Was he REALLY that worried about losing $40,000? That's chump change for him.

Congrats, Tomas :hatoff: better keep serving like that if Haas fails as pig matador (he'll probably end up as pig doormat)

The title of this thread. :rolleyes:

Good win for Berdych. :yeah: He's shown again why he's such a strong indoor player.

Andy's tie-break record keeps getting worse and worse. There was a time when he won 9/10 TBs, but now he doesn't even win half of them. :confused:

What's wrong with gloating anyways, so your guy won you can be happy, it's just you didn't see anyone in that thread talking trash about Grosjean. Roddick was injured today, he continued to play, was hardly slaughter but a well contested match that could have gone differently if Roddick wasn't injured. So lets stop this slaughter talk, say get well Roddick, good match Tommy. Lets get ready for Nadal v. Berdych next round it's gonna be a great match.

Andy has played through injury before when he probably shouldn't have, and he has retired several times. If the trainer tells him finishing the match is not likely to cause further injury, then he keeps playing and finishes. If the trainer tells him he's not sure or he might injure it more by continuing to play, then he retires. Pretty simple :shrug:

Andy is no different; when he retires it is because he could risk further damage, etc. I can list probably 5 other matches off the top of my head alone where he's played/finished a match hurt when he maybe shouldn't have:) Plus I am bored and tired and have nothing better to do at work right now ;)

Good win by Tomas, he plays well against the bigger players and he has improved his consistency this year, inspite of what some commentators are saying about him.

Before Roddick had the problem with the ankle, he was struggling to get a read on the Berdych serve and as for whether he should have retired, well that is his choice and his only, if it was very bad then he'd have retired.

Well I picked it actually for a few reasons. The Duck doesn't have a great record in Madrid, the power from Roddick doesn't bother him. I mean 7-6 isn't surprising at all, especially when both have the serve going.

The one annoying thing was they both decided to wear the same outfit albeit with different sponsors.

Roddick should be back for Paris. I thought Berdman blew it in the 1st set with that missed volley in the TB, and he had all the bps in Roddick's first service game, but the Duck served well on those points.

That tie break was critical, it was so close that the winner of the 1st set would get a serious boost for the rest of the match. Andy was not good enough to close it out one mini break up, it is interesting that his tiebreak record has deteriorated relative to his 2003 days.

On a side note, I think this win is also important for the DC tie next year, it is hard to see Andy winning on indoors clay against Tomas now.

That tie break was critical, it was so close that the winner of the 1st set would get a serious boost for the rest of the match. Andy was not good enough to close it out one mini break up, it is interesting that his tiebreak record has deteriorated relative to his 2003 days.

On a side note, I think this win is also important for the DC tie next year, it is hard to see Andy winning on indoors clay against Tomas now.

You'd think with his serve Roddick would do well in TB's, then again his return is so-s0, so that costs him. Pretty much right whoever got the TB was going to get some extra confidence.

Well, as for the DC, it does depend on who the second player is for the Czechs, since Novak is retiring.

Why is it BS? Because you don't like him? Andy has played through injury before when he probably shouldn't have, and he has retired several times. If the trainer tells him finishing the match is not likely to cause further injury, then he keeps playing and finishes. If the trainer tells him he's not sure or he might injure it more by continuing to play, then he retires. Pretty simple :shrug:

It's BS because, although he said he wanted to "give Tomas the win he deserved" in the press conference, the only thing that was keeping him from retiring was the fact that he would get fined $40,000.

And if it's not the case that he kept playing because he didn't want to lose $40,000, then why did he find it necessary to ask for the tournament supervisor to clarify whether or not he would be fined?:rolleyes:

I'm not quite sure why you're so pissed off at Roddick. So what if he didn't retire because he didn't want to lose $40,000? Maybe that much money is chump change for Roddick, but it's still a heck of a lot of money. I would have been pissed more if the Duck had that kind of mindset, and just told himself "I'm better than this, so I don't care." That's just plain conceited.

If you're pissed off at his comment, Roddick and other athletes are paid to keep a certain kind of image that doesn't hurt their reputation. Saying "I just didn't want to lose money" would be a big no-no. It's not just Roddick that would say that. Anyone would, and does.

Unless you're just pissed off at Roddick because he's Roddick, and have to find something to be angry about. Nothing I can do for you there.

It is hard to see Andy winning a 5 set match on clay against Tati Rascon, let alone world #11 Rafa killing Tomas "berdman" Berdych.

You think Bill Gates or the Google boys would give a flying fu*k about 40k?

Everything is relative, and when you're worth millions (or billions), then 40k is nothing.

I've seen Andy lose more than that at the Crown Casino. :rolleyes:

He'd lose more money than that if he injured himself more and couldn't play for the rest of the season.

And I can't be a Grover fan and not a Roddick fan? :p

Horrible example. You said it yourself, these guys are billionares. Bill is worth 50 billion. Believe it or not, millionares do have limits. What's being argued about, however, is not so much the money itself but player's attitude about it and the reaction it may/may not recieve. "Image is everything."

As for the gambling thing, gambling always finds itself in a whole different factor. Arguments based on betting ends up inconsistant. Seeing as how long you've been here, I would presume that you're pretty knowledgeable about tennis and tennis players. And yet you have $0 vCash.

lmao... some of the finest quality :bs: I've ever read on here.

I have seen Roddick lose well over 50k in one night at the casino, so it doesn't seem he values money as highly as you think.

And what does vcash have to do with anything? :lol: Anytime I had a decent bankroll, Amanda the stupid sl*t took most of it away for no good reason, and later on I was actually in severe debt when I deleted my ridiculous blog. :lol: They also take it away when they decide to delete my posts - I wouldn't be surprised if this one is deleted, but oh well.

If you want to talk about gambling or want me to teach you about it, just ask.

Good win by Tomas, he plays well against the bigger players and he has improved his consistency this year.

It'd be great to see him improve his ranking too. Maybe top ten for the first time, then again he is likely going down after Paris...

Sorry, I misunderstood. If that's the case there, then all my previous examples towards betting probably wouldn't hold up a candle to this discussion and were for naught. Instead, it just means you're an idiot who can't string up posts good enough to simply exist. Sorry again.

Of course they will, however, please do not lump all Roddick fans together. Please point me in the direction where "Roddick fans" gloated yesterday.:wavey:

I don't lump all fans of any player together. There are decent Roddick fans, then again there are A-Rod's 'tards. The same holds true for Fed, Nadal, Ljubicic, Nalbandian and other polarising people. I'd say most vocal fans of one camp tend to provoke the worst 'tardness of the opposing camp, and vice versa, in a neverending circle. :rolleyes:
