Since we've been talking HC stuff in the grass thread I thought it was time... andy's schedule before the USO is provisionally Toronto, Cincy, LA, and DC. He plays World Team Tennis this Saturday night and that should air on TTC I think. And he might play Indy next week but he can't give the tourney an answer yet :o :lol:

C'mon Andy, stop sucking please :(

I've got BIG hopes for the US Open this year. He's skipping the Olympics so he needs to do well to make the decision worthwhile.

Remember Dubai, Andy. You CAN do it! :bounce:

Kudos to the USO production company for editing the commercials so quickly. I suppose they've been working pretty hard for the last week or so to cut Justin out of them.

Moving on... Am I insane, there is a part of me that wants Andy to play Indy...

You're not the only one Fee. I'd love for Andy to take a WC into Indy because he has had almost no match practise over the last few months.

I think he should play indy and pull from LA, so that it'd be 3 weeks on, one off, one on, one off, USO

Plus let's be real. Indy's weather is a lot like Toronto and Cincy's and NYC's..... LA's isn't and he's never done all that well in LA (let's not forget the 2006 debacle, while i guess it turned out well.............)

You were right guys....

"Martin is holding the third and final wild card with the small chance he can convince two-time Indy champion Andy Roddick to take it. "We're still having conversations and they haven't said no yet," Martin said.
Martin must make his decision before Friday's draw. Qualifying will begin Saturday."

They should do that for every ace he serves then maybe he'd play Indy instead.

So, are we really knowing tomorrow if he plays or not !? Do they really have to give the WCs before the qualies draw or that is just a myth and Andy could decide on sunday ???

Aw, the suspense is killing me..... :sad:

Deboogle!.
07-10-2008, 10:38 PM
Yes I think they would have to decide by tomorrow because the person who would get the third WC would probably be someone who would play qualifying instead so yeah, i think we will know soon. I would assume he's not playing unless something comes out that he is.

Um, you'd fly to Indianapolis just to see Andy? If you're going to do that, why not go where you know he will be, like Toronto or Cincy or DC? I'd say it's unlikely he's going to play Indy, so I certainly wouldn't buy a flight and waste my money on his idiocy :lol:

Roddick cites injury, pulls out of WTT match

Associated Press - July 11, 2008 12:34 PM ET

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Andy Roddick is citing a lingering injury in his decision to pull out of a World Team Tennis match on Saturday in St. Louis.

Roddick was scheduled to play for the St. Louis Aces in their match against Kansas City. But Aces General Manager Dani Apted says on Friday that Roddick's injury is too severe for him to play or travel to St. Louis.

In a statement, Roddick says he's been dealing with the injury since mid-May. He says he's seeing a specialist and has been advised not to travel.

He did not specify the injury. A spokeswoman for the Aces says the team does not know any details about the injury.

Roddick was the sixth seed at the recently completed Wimbledon but was upset in the second round. He didn't mention an injury after the loss.

I wanna know how an injury goes from being pain-free to "too severe to travel" when he hasn't even been playing. And, what the F is too severe to travel? As if flying from NYC to St. Louis on a private jet would be tough on his shoulder :crying2: :haha: I also wanna know why, if it was so "severe," he had to wait until late on Thursday to inform them so that now the WTT team is screwed too.

Whatever Andy. Play Toronto and play well, dammit.

Brain/Ass injury.

07-11-2008, 07:08 PM
This press release really makes me wonder. Let's take it at face value for a minute... does this mean that the injury was worse then he let on back in May and that he really should not have played the grass season?

Or, does the fact that (allegedly) the Indy tournament was in conversations with SFX this week mean that he's just using it as an excuse to get some more rest this week?

To me, something is not adding up here. Not at all. I don't like to doubt the information that comes out with Andy's name on it. I really hope that somehow, somewhere in the next few days he will do a blog entry or something to give us a more honest indication of exactly what is going on here.

Deboogle!.
07-11-2008, 07:16 PM
No, it doesn't add up at all to any of us, because even if his shoulder is really bad, that would mean 1) he lied throughout the grass season saying it's finally pain-free and 2) as I said, I still don't buy how a shoulder injury could be too severe to travel on a private plane for a couple hours.

I would sure as hell hope he wouldn't pull out of WTT with a "severe injury" and then show up in Indy two days later, that would be horribly poor form and as much as I'd like to see him play Indy, not under these circumstances b/c it'd make him look like a liar. However if, as of yesterday, he hadn't given the tourney a definite no, that doesn't add up with him telling WTT no the same day. if he knew thursday that he couldn't play WTT surely he'd know he couldn't play a full tournament a couple days later.

I blame ken. And Andy. But mostly Ken.

On Tennis: U.S. Open crucial for inconsistent Roddick
By RAVI UBHA

It's been a strange season for Andy Roddick.

He ended his jinx against Roger Federer and took out the mercurial pair of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in back-to-back matches at the Dubai Tennis Championships in the winter, boosting hopes the big-serving Austin, Texas, resident could return to the top four -- and stay there.

At the same time, Roddick exited in the third round at the Australian Open and second round at Wimbledon, his four-set defeat to unpredictable Serb Janko Tipsarevic at the All England Club downright ugly: a few second-serve returns barely made the net and left his support camp gasping in frustration. To remind, Roddick hasn't reached a Grand Slam semifinal since the 2007 Australian Open.

The next two months will thus be crucial, with Flushing Meadows his last real shot at glory because Roddick is electing not to compete at next month's Beijing Olympics.

Not a good start so far.

Roddick pulled out of a World Team Tennis encounter in St. Louis over the weekend because of the shoulder injury that sidelined him at the French Open and probably hindered his play a tad at Wimbledon.

The immediate prognosis is less than promising.

"Due to the same injury I've been rehabbing since mid May, I'm seeing a specialist and have been advised not to travel," Roddick wrote on his Web site.

Roddick wasn't scheduled to participate at the Indianapolis Tennis Championships that start Monday, although he's penciled in to compete four consecutive weeks beginning with the Canadian Masters in Toronto on July 21, the other stops being Cincinnati, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. Expect a withdrawal or two along the way.

Olympics not right fit for Roddick, many other stars
By Douglas Robson, Special for USA TODAY

Former Olympian Andy Roddick again will be carrying the torch for the USA this summer. But instead of Beijing, he'll be propping up the Olympus US Open Series with his high-profile presence.

Since tennis was reinstated as a medal sport in 1988, the Summer Games have played havoc with the already-overloaded tennis calendar. This year a number of players are opting out of the chance to reap glory for their country to focus on the U.S. Open and heal their bodies. Others are avoiding it out of ennui.

"I've already done the whole thing," said Mardy Fish, who nabbed a silver in singles four years ago at Athens but will bypass a shot at another medal.

Roddick's reason stems from his desire to be match-tough and fresh when he hits Flushing Meadows, the site of the U.S. Open, his only Grand Slam title (2003).

"It was tough," the sixth-ranked Roddick said of his decision a few months back. "Thankfully, I've gotten to go through the Olympic experience once, which I think is huge for any athlete."

New York is priority

Roddick, who lost in the third round at Athens and followed that with a quarterfinal exit at the Open, knows the price cross-continental travel can exact. This summer is no different, with the top men required to play back-to-back Masters events in Toronto and Cincinnati.

"This time I decided that (New York) was the priority," the cannon-serving Texan said.

Roddick and No. 41 Fish aren't alone. Other big names taking an Olympic pass include No. 15 Richard Gasquet of France and No. 45 Tommy Haas of Germany. Haas won a silver medal at the 2000 Sydney Games.

Nor are the Davis Cup teammates the only Americans. No. 71 Ashley Harkleroad decided to turn down an Olympic berth to improve her ranking after missing several tournaments this spring following surgery to remove one of her ovaries.

"I need to get some matches under my belt and get my ranking up," says the 23-year-old Georgia native, who kicks off her summer campaign this week at the Bank of the West Classic in Palo Alto, Calif. "I also didn't really grow up watching tennis in the Olympics, so I never dreamed about being in it."

Top female players who also opted out of Beijing include No. 8 Anna Chakvetadze, former No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo and 2007 Wimbledon runner-up Marion Bartoli.

Mauresmo, the 2004 silver medalist, has been beset with injuries this year, and her ranking has fallen outside the top 30.

"As I was not picked to play singles, and because I need to preserve myself from physical problems, I have decided not to take part in the Olympics to concentrate on getting ready for the U.S. Open," the Frenchwoman said on her website when she announced the decision.

Facing criticism

Bartoli, 23, also has struggled with injury and fatigue, but she has also had a contentious relationship with French tennis authorities, often opting out of Fed Cup.

Gasquet has been the object of severe criticism at home, particularly after he declined to play during France's Davis Cup loss to the USA in April.

Others, such as 2007 U.S. Open semifinalist Chakvetadze, might need a mental break. After finishing last year ranked No. 6, the Russian has had a subpar season and admitted suffering from psychological stress after an armed robbery at her Moscow home in December.

"Anna has no plans to compete in Beijing because her current form is far from ideal," Chakvetadze's mother told the Allsport news agency.

Ideal or not, top-ranked Roger Federer remains gung-ho on Beijing.

"I had two great experiences, but I completely understand (Roddick's) choice, I think, and everybody should," said Federer, who lost the bronze medal match in Sydney and crashed out of the second round in Athens to Tomas Berdych after serving as Switzerland's flag-bearer during the opening ceremonies. "The U.S. Open, for him, seems to be the biggest thing for him to focus on."

Some choices reflect the shifting priorities of globetrotting athletes. Lindsay Davenport can relate. She's been in both camps.

Seen both sides

Davenport has called winning the gold in singles at the 1996 Atlanta Games her "coming-out" moment, and a career highlight. Eight years later she skipped the 2004 Athens Games to concentrate on winning the U.S. Open. It almost paid off, but a groin injury contributed to a semifinal loss to eventual winner Svetlana Kuznetsova.

"I totally respect that," she said of players who choose to stick close to home and prepare for New York. "I did that in 2004. It was a conscious decision to put all my eggs into one basket and go for the U.S. Open."

Davenport, 32, says a big motivation to return to the circuit last year after giving birth to a baby boy was one more shot at a medal.

"Sometimes something has to sacrifice, and I think the players that are skipping it have participated in an Olympics before," says the three-time major champ. "They're at different stages of their career, and at different stages there are different priorities."

Whether sponsors and tournaments are applying pressure to stay home, particularly on Americans, is another possible motivation that players rarely discuss. Fish says he hasn't felt any extra cajoling to play the six weeks of Series events that conclude in New York. He admits that there are other considerations.

"Let's be honest: There are 13 tournaments with more money and more points," he said of the nine Masters events and four majors. "Hopefully, no one questions anyone's loyalty."

'Favorite events'

Fish is likewise keen to sweat it out at places like Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Washington, D.C., the sites of some of his best tennis so far.

"I love the smokin' hot weather," he says. "These are all my favorite events."

Fish, 26, understands when people question his sanity for skipping the Olympics. He and Roddick shared a suite in the athletes' village in Athens and had a ball meeting athletes of all stripes from around the world. Fish likens his decision to NBA players who once wouldn't have dreamed of missing out on a USA team nomination but now sometimes prefer to sit on the sidelines.

"Before I was like, 'How can they turn that down, playing for your country, the Olympics, the coolest thing ever?' " says Fish, citing the pressure, pollution and multiple time zones that a stop in Beijing would entail. "Now I understand exactly how they feel."

And like Roddick, he wants to give himself the best chance at home on a surface that brings out the best in his game.

"Andy wants to win Slams, and I desperately want to do well at the Open," says Fish, who has never gone past the second round.

Roddick struck a similar note.

"Switching time zones for two weeks, and then come back and have four days, and then you're starting the U.S. Open?" he said. "I don't know if that was the best preparation."

Like many cities it is our 1 week to shine and all the top players come so it should be a good week and whilst I am sure a lot of people will be disappointed I would want him to be totally recovered before playing again.

The most important thing for Andy now is just getting that shoulder healthy because he did not look 100% at Wimbledon or Queens. Regardless of the BS choking.

I hope he's healthy by next week for the Masters or he's majorly screwed for the summer season.

I remember that :sad: He was everywhere with AMEX in Toronto 2006 and poor baby wasnt there.... I remember I kept telling to myself that they were going to make a signing session with him in that AMEX tent... but well, injuries...

Anyway, back to 2008, let's hope he can recover soon so all of you can see him at Toronto :)

07-19-2008, 12:12 AM
It has nothing to do with "loving him" it's just his reputation. Even ESPN.com has a recent article that says he wouldn't have pulled out of WTT for nothing. Especially considering he hadn't played. He has played WTT under worse conditions than this. I doubt he's as hurt as the articles/press release made it sound, but I also doubt he just skipped it for fun b/c he didn't feel like because that's not who he is. And, I do not think he has skipped a Masters event for his charity event. Not even he is that stupid. But even if he was, at least his charity event is a great cause, it's not quite the same as what you are saying - that he just didn't feel like. Also the following day he magically didn't appear at the softball thing either.

Oj-Ala
07-19-2008, 12:19 AM
Well, last year he didnt go to Madrid because on sunday he was at Austin for his charity but yeah, as you said, it is a great cause and I can proudly say I have cooperated with that several ocasions so, Im not judging him or anything, actually Im defending him, if he decides to skip anything or to play somewhere, who Am I to judge him ??? I dont know what is in his mind, so....

For me everything is about love, so sorry, I love him and I wont critize him or anything, actually, as I mentioned, skipping that stupidity of team tennis whether he was injured or not is perfect to me, not to mention the softball thing....

If that is your opinion and you dont beleive he skipped that thing only "for pleasure" and you like ESPN articles, fine, I respect that, just respect my opinion too.

And I dont "love him", I love him :)

Ready For Toronto
July 19th, 2008 10:16 am
By Andyroddick.com Staff

A couple of weeks of hard work in the heat and humidity of Austin has Andy getting ready for Toronto. The summer hard court season is upon us and the first stop for Andy is Toronto. As always, many of the stops in the summer are played in some of the toughest conditions. The heat and humidity can get really tough in places like Cincinnati, Washington DC and New York. This is one of the reasons that Andy makes sure that his conditioning is as good as it can be. The fitness work in Austin gives you a little bit better chance of having success in the summer heat. It is time to get back to some tournament tennis and two big tournaments in a row (Toronto and Cincinnati). And of course for me Cincinnati is a hometown tournament for me so I always look forward to the ATP event in my backyard. But first a big week in Toronto.

Oh my, finally got some news about Andy! :sobbing:

Excellent!! at the same 1/4 quarter with roger, 2nd round potential opponent is Tips again! very fine! :o:angel:
Oh goody, a tough draw. Now he won't choke away any matches he'll just flat-out lose. Good luck, Andy. :p

OK, I want him to play Tipsarevic. And hope there will be a different tennis from Andy this time, and a different winner, of course...

Yes I can confirm he is here at last. I didn't believe the sign up board for practice courts when it stated Roddick and Coach but not only did John show up but Doug as well and then Andy practiced with Mardy and joked around a lot. His strokes were looking sharp and so was the serve and it was good to see him finaly on the courts once again. Also saw Nadal, Safin, Davydenko and Kiefer so it was a good day.

Thank you tennis lover and Deeboogle for the goodreps.

It's not that I don't like Andy. To me he is fine - although his movement of serve does get in my nerves :lol: - but I am not his fan either.

But thank you all for welcoming me here! :)

I guess I could introduce myself now. :lol:

I am a portuguese young lady named Raquel. And I am a fan of Nole.

Sorry guys I forgot to take the camera yesterday and besides I wasn't sure if Andy had even shown up but it seems that most of the top players are here. It is raining today and doesn't look good for the next couple of days either so we might have some backlogs. Heyho has been a strange summer so far.

Welcome arm, come by anytime. I'm a Nole fan too. :)

I just remembered that I flew over the Toronto site as I was flying into the airport on the 7th. Looked like a pretty decent facility, not too large, easy to get around. Might add this event to my 'someday' list. :)

well it was mainly eastern european countries that I would never usually pick as a holiday destination so it was a chance to see places I might never see again (briefly I know but better than never). I didn't get the chance to really explore and do daytrips or anything though but now I know which places I like and whether they're worth going back to. It wasn't ideal, in some places I would have preferred a bit more time but I had to go a long way in a short time so I couldn't do it exactly as I would maybe have chosen to. But I live in Europe so I can easily get a cheap flight to anywhere and go for a weekend or something. :p
