All 4 WCs to Italians no doubt.

Ferrero can always ask for one but he probably won't get it. Even though he's a former champion.

:spit:
on what basis?

I guess Fognini, Starace and Cipolla should be a lock for WC

4th one to Volandri maybe

Honeymoon??

He could have gone to Rome for his honeymoon :shrug: just like Rogi did with MC. Rome is a beautiful city well suited for a honeymoon :D After Andy lost in R2 they could go to Venice :cool:

Anyone know the official reason for Roddick's withdrawl?

adee-gee
04-23-2009, 11:44 PM
Probably watched RogiGOAT last week and decided gamming his new wife would be more fun than getting bitched on clay.

Though I guess the situations are different, I can perfectly understand Rogi wanting to get on court.....

PinkFeatherBoa
04-24-2009, 12:18 AM
Oh Andy, tsk, a honeymoon too far.

I'm interested to know what his reason was, as well.

alfonsojose
04-24-2009, 01:28 PM
oh yes, probably :lol:

Too much sex means less first serves in. On clay it's murder for Andy
