What is it with these Serbs and their strategic medical time-outs? Is that something they actually practice and train for over there? Come on, girls, end this match already so we can see Andy play.

he's being completely outplayed from the baseline and just dropped serve very meekly :o

This is undoubtedly one of the worst Andy matches I've ever watched. That's not his fault, Dlouhy's hit 11 DFs in a set and a half, but Andy's put-me-to-sleep lack of aggression is really boring and disconcerting. You know it's bad when even Pmac questions whether Andy's "consistent and not too many errors but not at all aggressive" style of play is good enough against the top top players......and if he doesn't step up and in (literally) a lot more than this, Rafa will eat him for lunch.

tangerine_dream
01-14-2008, 04:39 AM
Yeah, this match is bad. I thought maybe Andy might use this to practice his volleying but he's hardly been to net. :o

Deboogle!.
01-14-2008, 04:40 AM
He could practice anything...... net, forehand, aggression, anything. There's no way he'll lose this match at all, but noooooooooo :zzz: It's just poor habit-forming for later when this kind of play will get him eaten alive.

jeahhh!
01-14-2008, 04:41 AM
Wow somebody looks cheerful :rolleyes:

This match is so dull :yawn:

tangerine_dream
01-14-2008, 04:44 AM
Andy looks crabby and very uncomfortable out there. It's a good thing Dlouhy looks even more uncomfortable.

*edit*

Nice medley of Andy's press conferences.

Andy better put the beat down on Dlouhy in this last set, I don't want to see Dlouhy suddenly get inspired and play like Gasquet at Wimby here.

:secret: Jankovic is playing injured and it may have something to do with her shoddy play in that match (and her decision to take an injury timeout).

Deboogle!.
01-14-2008, 04:52 AM
Her timeout was for her back at a very opportune time. But so was Paszek's. That match was just painful prolonged torture. Plus, I don't know how much sympathy I can muster for Jankovic, considering what she did to herself in the Hopman Cup, knowing this event was coming.

Feisty Lindsay having a long argument with the chair umpire. I'm actually glad they pulled away from Andy's match to show Lindsay's which looks more interesting.

Passive play, dinky moonballing, just more of the same garbage from the first two matches. :help: I thought maybe Andy would step it up vs Kohlschreiber but I guess he's not interested in doing well at AO this year. These so-called easy draws never seem to help him, it just gives him an excuse to be lazy for several rounds. He looks so flat out there. :zzz:

Roddick does not deserve to win this match. He is playing unbelievably badly, whilst Kohli is playing decent. Not the match of his lief, but enough to make Roddick look like a club player.

laure xxx
01-18-2008, 01:36 PM
What is he thinking? What is Jimmy Connors thinking out there? Is it that Connors is a poor coach, or is Roddick just too headstrong to pay attention to the things he should be doing?

He needs to lose to get better. If he went on to win this match with the way he's playing, it's just reinforcing bad habits. OTOH, if he starts playing amazingly and wins, I'll take that too. But it doesn't seem like that is a high probability right now...Mind you I have no idea what's going on in the match right now because my room mate changed the channel :shrug:

He had some (?) set points. One on his serve. It was extremely tight obviously, but then Kohlschreiber ripped a forehand return winner of Roddick's first serve to set up set point, and then...I think Roddick hit one out on the next point.

Okay, Andy is up 5-4. He NEEDS to break for the 4th set so he can serve 1st in the 5th!!!!!

laure xxx
01-18-2008, 01:59 PM
Yeah. He just played so conservatively on his set points, not showing a lot of respect for Kohlschreiber (who's winning well over 50% of the longer rallies). And of course then Kohli would get himself in a position to hit an easy winner or a drop shot. The quality of the drop shot doesn't even need to be that good, that's how far Roddick was/is behind the baseline.

Too much defense and passive play so he got what was coming too him. I just don't understand how many lessons like this it will take for him to stop doing it. Kohlschreiber was very very good but it still wasn't anything an Aggressive Andy couldn't handle.

Sadly yeah. Same old us fans with the same old pos-match comments. It's vicious. :awww:yep, and with each passing time he does this, one has to wonder how long. If he were playing his best and just missing, at least he would go down swinging. But to be so passive, to just let the balls sit there waiting for this guy to pounce, just like 2 years ago, there's no excuse for it because we know he can play better than that. I really do wonder why I bother sometimes.

nick, he's had way too many wakeup calls in the past 3+ years. I know there are some much better at this than I am, but I can't keep hoping anymore. one wake up call, two wake up calls, coaching changes, ok, i can keep hoping............................ but twenty....

He argued with the ump several times. Once b/c the ump didn't do anything about fans screaming during his serve, once there was a challenge and he was mad the point wasn't replayed, and a couple other times too
