Roddick has always skipped Monte carlo and this supposed injury can be a good reason to do it again

Rodd made it to the quarters last year. He should lose a ton-o- points, no ?

Montanes beat Ginepri in R1 last year, Maybe Andy's afraid, lol !

he will lose all 40 points not that match

I think he will try to play MC, he didn't play MC because it was too long trip from Texas with no time to prepare. Now he can make trip to Europe on Saturday and get used to courts I don't see a reason why he would skip it if he is 100% fit he could make one round or two just to get better Clay experience in 2007

He won't lose any points b/c houston wasn't one of his 5th best, and I bet my house that he won't play MC. Roddick has always skipped Monte carlo and this supposed injury can be a good reason to do it again"supposed"????? He reinjured it playing Davis Cup when he probably shouldn't have. He was ordered to not play tennis at all for 7-10 days. Come on :rolleyes:

I don't think American players need an injury to skip MC. Maybe they'll start playing it again next year when Houston's no longer on the schedule. :shrug:

If he isn't 100% fit he should skip I would like to see him in Monte Carlo but his health is more important if he skips it he won't lose anything and gain 3 weeks for recovery and work with with Jimmy to defend his QF from Rome which is possible with good draw considering the fact that Rome plays quite fast

Until they put a week in between, the Americans aren't gonna play.

His points are staying how they are and the next place he'll be is Rome.

04-10-2007, 08:38 PM
it is not so bad in any case it is better to rest injured leg longer , missing Houston is not big deal and Mone Carlo so I am sure he will be 100% in Rome , I remember last year when he missed almost whole US hardcourt summer swing because of injury it was huge scare not it doesn't mean anything he just need to go to Rome, Hamburg and RG and grab some points there he has only QF to defend with no points at RG and Hamburg

BRICKER: Roddick's Cup fervor costly

April 12, 2007

Andy Roddick is limping, his hamstring is swollen and he's going to be out up to three more weeks.

He'll announce, perhaps today, that he's withdrawing from Monte Carlo, which begins Monday. He'd already pulled out of this week's U.S. Clay Court Championships in Houston, where he had a six-figure appearance fee guaranteed.

That money, estimated at $200,000, was his if he didn't play Davis Cup last week, but Roddick's decision to play against Spain says quite a lot about his commitment to winning the Cup for the United States for the first time in 12 years.

The injury first occurred in the opening set of his match against Andy Murray at the Sony Ericsson Open on Key Biscayne. He quit the match, knowing that if he somehow won, he'd never get through the rest of the tournament, and because he wanted to be able to play Davis Cup a week later.

When he arrived in Winston-Salem, N.C., he knew the strong chances of reinjuring the hamstring and he didn't just ``tweak'' it, as some have suggested, in the second set against Fernando Verdasco last Friday. It was bad enough that he could not have played the reverse singles on Sunday against Tommy Robredo had the Bryan brothers somehow lost Saturday's doubles.

They won, clinching the tie and sending the United States into the semifinals against Sweden, Sept. 21-23, and giving the U.S. a strong chance of winning and hosting a Davis Cup final if Russia defeats Germany. If Germany wins, the United States would be on the road, assuming a win over Sweden.

If Roddick can run, he'll be there. He has made Davis Cup a priority that could only be exceeded by his desire to win Grand Slams. He's going to try to get back on court at Rome, May 7-13. Roddick hasn't been on clay since last year, and he needs to prepare for the French Open (May 27-June 10).

The plan is to start training by late April with Jimmy Connors, and the month after that is going to be exciting. Connors has so much to impart to Roddick, and you could make an argument that he'll be the best clay-court coach Andy has ever had.

Connors was 154-38 lifetime on clay (red and green), reached four semifinals at the French Open and, in 1976, was 25-0 on dirt, including the title at the U.S. Open, which was played on clay at Forest Hills.

http://www.andyroddick.com/2986/post-davis-cup-update/

Andy played a very good match on a left leg that was not 100%. After straining his left hamstring muscle during his quarterfinal match it was 10 days of treatment and hard work to get ready for the match. It was a great effort by Andy to pull things together and play tennis like he did. As many of you have heard Andy pulled out of the Houston Tournament. The decision was made because Andy would be in danger of making the injury worse by trying to play 3, 4 or even 5 matches in a week. Andy will spend this next week, resting, getting treatment, and working on things to make the leg strong. Andy should be back to practicing and on the court in the next week to 10 days.”
