i woke up just now to see andy's lost the first set and... i really hope this isn't queens part deux. :awww: come on, andy. start playing smarter.

I don't like when Andy loses the first set. He's not good at playing catchup.

I'm afraid it is...
Here comes Llodra's break.
You can rest assure Andy will give Llodra full credit in the presser later.

:o hopefully andy keeps fighting (and something clicks and he starts playing better). but if he goes down two sets to love... yeah. smfh.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:14 PM
Llodra as a serve&volleyer obviously knows how to play AGAINST serve&volley too so while it's a much much better tactic it's not perfect either, the best tactic would be to simply overpower him.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:19 PM
I think Andy will get to a tiebreak and will look clueless there even on his serve despite looking good on his serve in the majority of the 2nd set.

Deboogle!.

Llodra as a serve&volleyer obviously knows how to play AGAINST serve&volley too so while it's a much much better tactic it's not perfect either, the best tactic would be to simply overpower him.Huh, how is that obvious? Just being a lefty doesn't make it easier for him to play lefties, does it? Just because you can do something doesn't make it easier to be reactive to the same kind of thing. That'd be like saying that b/c andy has a big serve, he knows how to return big serves. we all know how true that is :rolls:

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:21 PM
Well it's not obvious but tactically he knows what should be done against serve&volley unlike Andy, but yeah it doesn't look like he can execute it too well at the moment so that's good.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:21 PM
Oh please Andy please please please take it!!!
Yessssss!!! come on! OK this really should be more comfortable now, huge huge boost, especially mentally.

Deboogle!.
06-23-2010, 01:22 PM
the thing is, maybe all llodra is able to do on andy's serve is block it back. If andy takes that away from him, maybe he will panic.. maybe that is what just happened

Selby

Please, Llodra, do the thing that the French are so great at: Losing.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:35 PM
Phew, good escape.
Andy really has to stop with the WTA smashes and finish them off properly.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:39 PM
Yess great break now hold!

OnyxRose
06-23-2010, 01:40 PM
Good break Andy. Just don't drop your serve please.

Andy used to be so great at smashes...what has happened to them lately?

tsurupettan
06-23-2010, 01:43 PM
don't let llodra back into this, please hold.

eta: yay, ace.

Selby
06-23-2010, 01:43 PM
Another good escape but why is he struggling so much? It should be like it was in the 2nd set.

tsurupettan
06-23-2010, 01:48 PM
double break. this feels better. i'm glad llodra's slowed down (and andy's picked it up some? or at least is actually taking advantage).

Selby
06-23-2010, 02:16 PM
This is tough now, the momentum is with Llodra and I'm worried of a tiebreak, but Andy should really win it, it's just that there's always the possibility he'll play stupidly in this breaker.

Selby
06-23-2010, 02:23 PM
Crap Llodra seem to have figured out Andy tactically again, he has the upper hand, that's not good.

Selby
06-23-2010, 02:35 PM
A very very very good win, LOL at Andy playing football (soccer) :haha:

Deboogle!.
06-23-2010, 02:39 PM

Oh gosh, thank goodness Andy. Never in doubt, hahahaha :)

OnyxRose
06-23-2010, 03:22 PM
So glad he got a tough one to toughen him up a bit. Good job, Andy.

Selby
06-25-2010, 04:42 PM
Yeah this doesn't look easy either, and what really bugs me is that the court doesn't play like a grass court whatsoever

Selby
06-25-2010, 04:50 PM
Great! He breaks to win to 1st set, it's pretty much ideal.

Selby
06-25-2010, 05:22 PM
It's still a tough battle and Andy really should take his chances, the German is so up and down and unpredictable and it's very tricky.
I mean, 0-30 on 2nd serve and he's doing nothing, that's gonna cost him.
Edit: holy crap he's just blown 3 set points! That's so coming back to kick him in the teeth

Selby
06-25-2010, 05:43 PM
:help:

no words, just no words
Bye Andy!

I don't know why he is so good in making trouble for himself...

OnyxRose
06-25-2010, 05:53 PM
How he lost that second set, I'll never know. Three set points to losing the set.

Selby
06-25-2010, 05:55 PM
If he gives this break back now then surely it will be one trouble too many and there will be a very good chance he loses.

Selby
06-25-2010, 05:59 PM
He's just playing badly all around you know, nothing's looking sharp at the moment.
He just can't afford getting broken, that would totally kill him and lift the German to his best tennis, that would be end of match probably.

Selby
06-25-2010, 06:03 PM
Now this is just shocking, what a stinker he's playing at the moment.

OnyxRose
06-25-2010, 06:29 PM
Andy takes the third set. You could have been in the locker room by now, Andrew.

He's up 3-0 in the fourth.

Deboogle!.
06-25-2010, 06:36 PM
It's all good. Andy needs these battles early on to build up the reflexes for tight moments. Fed and Rafa and other top players have been pushed by much lesser players than Kohli and Andy seems to always have trouble with players who have really good 1-handers.

tangerine_dream
06-25-2010, 06:41 PM
Llodra and Kohls are/were very good tests for Andy going into the second week. This can only help him. :cool:

OnyxRose

Yeah, I'm okay with Andy getting battle tested. Far too often he's cruised against lesser-ranked players only to falter when he faces the top guys. He's met the tougher opponents by far of any of the top guys. And do fans of other players have selective memory? Andy always seems to get it up for the top players; it's the ones that are not top 10 or even top 20 that he seems to play awful. He wasn't great last year until the Murray match.

Selby
06-25-2010, 07:13 PM
Oh thank god he won that. It was as far from convincing as it gets but I guess in the early rounds it's affordable if you always tough it out and I guess that's what Andy did today. I was just worried that the German might be too good(you know, different class than Falla and Haase) to allow Andy to escape from that but he had his mental issues and that helped Andy under tight situations.
Actually today Andy's defensive game was reasonable but he wasn't aggressive at all and when he did try to be it wasn't sharply at all. Plus he's volleys were very very dull, they were much better against Llodra. Serve was good though, especially under tight situations but maybe a bit more consistency could have prevented facing all those break points.
Well we already know Andy can raise his level in the money time, he knows that too, let's hope he can do it again. Next round maybe he could still be not at his best(but he has to show some improvement) but starting the quarters he has to be 100%.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 02:47 PM
um why is andy having so much trouble holding serve :tape:

Selby
06-28-2010, 02:56 PM
Jesus Andy's so defensive he can't hit a forehand winner even from inside the service box. He's showing no intentions of even trying to attack and when he has to attack it looks so lame and weak. He's got nothing to offer other than his serve and Lu is the much better player today from the baseline.
Sure, he'll probably tough it out and get through again, but there'll have to be a really really drastic improvement in just one match if he wants to get any further than that, so I'm pessimistic.

06-28-2010, 03:03 PM
Somebody please make a gif of that running backhand DTL winner Andy hit, they're so rare they're special. :inlove:

Selby
06-28-2010, 03:54 PM
Same crap like friday, missing chances and then losing the set, you know he's playing really crappy when he can't even hold his own service points in the tiebreak.

Selby
06-28-2010, 03:56 PM
:haha::haha:

He deserves to lose really, Lu is outplaying him

Heather1229
06-28-2010, 03:57 PM
What the hell Andy...horribly crappy tie break for a guy who should win tie breaks with his eyes closed..ugh

is it as bad on tv?

Selby
06-28-2010, 04:02 PM
I'll say the same thing I said on Friday again: If Andy gets broken that would be GSM Lu because the serve is right now all he's got.

is it as bad on tv?
Much worse, Andy's being a choker pusher and Lu hits all the winners.
He can't even push properly really, he hits a lot of his weak shots to the net.

By far Andy's worst match of the tournament and it comes in the second week, amazing.

wake up andy !!!

Selby
06-28-2010, 04:37 PM
OK I've seen Andy playing badly, we all have, but I just can't recall a match where he hit so so so many balls into the net. All of his errors are to the bottom of the net! And it's not like he's ripping it, he's either slicing or trying to put topspin on the ball. It's amazing how bad he's playing, breaking new records.

Selby
06-28-2010, 04:42 PM
This is just stunning in every bad way, he's so losing this match, bye Andy.

Viky-cro
06-28-2010, 04:46 PM
he needs a miracle, not sure he'll get one

Selby
06-28-2010, 04:52 PM
With all the respect fuck off Andy
What a little choker clown
lost 5 points in a row, completely lost his serve, double faults, errors to the bottom of the net, choking, pushing, clowning.
I'm not watching this and I don't care about him, it doesn't look like he really wants it.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 04:53 PM
holy CRAP :haha:

Whatever. I had a feeling he would mess this up.

Selby

Wasn't Lu said to be injured? But "good" thing he isn't because he deserves to win.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:17 PM
well he apparently had a lot of stuff taped on saturday in his doubles match but he had yesterday off so obviously it's not that bad. this sounds like it's all on andy, though.<br>

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:23 PM
His body language :tape:
I think I saw him running around to his backhand :haha:
He doesn't really want it, it doesn't look so at least.
OK now I've stopped watching, promise.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:28 PM
that's ludicrous, we know that he wants it. i think if something like that is a problem, it would be that he wants it TOO much and starts pressing. We have seen him do that before at wimbledon. <br>

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:31 PM
Sure, he wants to win in his heart, but it doesn't look like he's willing to give all he's got and fight like he's never fought before, that's what I meant, because he looks off. It would actually be very good in this case if he wanted it "too much" and if he were overanxious and overeager.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:38 PM
How is he not fighting? It's not like he's losing 6-1 in this set. I mean, it sounds like he's awful and everything and that's fine (I mean it's not fine but you know what i mean:lol: )... but it doesn't sound like he's not fighting. <br>

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:39 PM
What to you think, should I turn it on again for the tiebreak (if he gets to it) or will I just see him finding new pathetic ways to lose yet another tiebreak?

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:40 PM
How is he not fighting? It's not like he's losing 6-1 in this set. I mean, it sounds like he's awful and everything and that's fine (I mean it's not fine but you know what i mean:lol: )... but it doesn't sound like he's not fighting. <br>

Yeah but he's just looking bitchy and grumpy instead of just being pumped up for each point.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:42 PM
I would leave it off but I almost never watch tiebreaks :lol:


I'm sure he's just annoyed with himself. we dont know what's going on with him, we never do. all we know is for sure he does not want to be in this position, i'm sure he is frustrated that he knows he could and should be in the locker room with a tough straight-sets win and instead he is here. no one would be happy about that.

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:48 PM
well, I'm pretty stunned. This is a bad low, even for him. Not sure what else to say.

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:48 PM
Why is he serving so badly in the tiebreaks? :haha:
It's beyond playing badly, it's just being a coward

Deboogle!.
06-28-2010, 05:55 PM
oy vey here we go <br>

Selby
06-28-2010, 05:56 PM
Wow there was a lot of luck involved there, especially in the beginning of the tiebreak.
Well, he's got a small chance now but he's got to be super motivated and super pumped, if he isn't after what happened then I just don't know what to say.

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:04 PM
Yeah, I just can't see Andy breaking him, I think it's more likely that we'll see a game that Andy misses like 80% of his first serves and then hitting forehands to the net.

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:12 PM
This is retarded even by this match's standards
Does he really want to break him just by running so far behind the baseline near the line judges and by hoping he misses smashes?

OnyxRose
06-28-2010, 06:14 PM
I can't stand Andy.

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:19 PM
No one could ever say Lu doesn't/didn't deserve to win this match

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:30 PM
Amazing player Lu, plays offensively under pressure, just like he should

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:36 PM
Andy doesn't even have the serve now, his speeds and percentages dropped, so basically he's got nothing now.

Selby
06-28-2010, 06:40 PM
70-68? :haha:
No I'm kidding, Andy will lose it today

06-28-2010, 07:12 PM
as bad as we all feel, i'm sure andy is feeling a million times worse, even though it his is own fault. sometimes knowing it is your own fault makes it even worse because its easier to blame others than yourself.

Selby
06-28-2010, 07:23 PM

No, I mean, I only feel terrible because I know how bad Andy must be feeling, so you know, not because I'm a glory hunter type of fan.
I mean, any loss he doesn't mind I don't mind and the more a loss makes him sad the same for me.

Viky-cro
06-28-2010, 07:37 PM
I've jut watched his press conference, he looked really sad, his voice was shaking
some one asked him if his going to be pissed tomorrow, the answer was of course, who wouldn't be, please bring some normal questions

Selby
06-28-2010, 07:47 PM
his voice was shaking
:sad::sad::sad:

He probably gave Lu full credit and didn't blame himself did he? Well that surd of things usually pisses me off but not today, not now, I'm just gutted and devastated for him, poor poor lad.

Yeah, he definitely gave credit to Lu and he looked really upset. Blamed the loss on his return game, which the commentators agreed with.

Selby
06-28-2010, 08:03 PM
ANDY RODDICK: Well, no. But, I mean, through three sets I was playing horrendously, I mean really, really badly. I mean, to the point where I was trying to think of how to put balls in the court.

Actually, I mean, I think the fifth set was probably the best set that I played as far as hitting the ball, you know, making him struggle to actually get through service games sometimes.

But when you dig yourself a hole, it's tough to get out, when you've given someone confidence, when they have their feet under them a little bit more.

Well at last he says the obvious.

This is crap. I mean no offense to Mardy or anything BUT he's losing to Mardy?! Ugh! Well, his goal was for match practice and he picked up some points, but my gosh, I could serve better than Mardy right now and somehow Andy still is losing....

P.S. I have no words for the tie break nonsense that has been going on, work on that buddy.

Deboogle!.
07-25-2010, 12:53 AM
No he didn't pick up any points, only 2 250 events count and he has a win and a final... as for the rest. yeah pretty much.

07-25-2010, 12:59 AM
well as my coworkers and i say to each other when we get pissed off when we care more than our bosses do, you can't care more than the owner of the company. in this case, andy is laughing at net, so i guess we can't care more than he does. :o :help: this is gonna be a long summer....

Heather1229
07-25-2010, 12:59 AM
Doesn't he pick up anything to counter the fact that with this crap play he won't be making the final of DC?

Good point, Deb! Yes, this will be a very long summer....March seems so long ago!

I like Mardy but he shouldn't be losing to him. Ugh.

Deboogle!.
07-25-2010, 01:01 AM
DC is a 500 point tourney so it's considered somewhat differently. all i know is that he had a max gain of 100 points in this event and that was if he won it. So he can't possibly have picked anything up from a semi, except some horrendous matches :D

Heather1229
07-25-2010, 01:04 AM
Oh okay, haha. I forgot that DC was a 500. Well maybe he's just preparing for the long haul, peaking early wouldn't be a good thing afterall..

Deboogle!.
07-25-2010, 01:05 AM
at this rate he'll peak around...oh, never :lol: it's one thing to be off and not yet in your rhythm. it's another to be outplaying a guy by a lot and losing to him when you've never lost to him before :lol: something's going on in his head and it's not getting any better

Heather1229
07-25-2010, 01:11 AM
Well the messed up in the head thing is clearly evident by the absolute craptastic tie breaks. I mean he lost a tie break to Ram 1-7. I just don't want him to fall out of the top 10, so maybe that should be the goal for the summer. Dear Andy, please stay in the top 10. Sincerely your long suffering fans....

Pretty much. Who knows. He wins miami, playing pretty damn good tennis, and since then it's just been worse and worse and worse. He better right the ship, soon, because at some point he'll go past the point of no return.

08-06-2010, 04:10 AM
well it was his own doing. not that I blame him for trying to be a normal person and spending some down time with his wife, but if he doesn't realize that time off seriously killed all the good stuff he had going, he's clearly not as smart as I thought. i understand not having a chance to build up matchplay, but he seems so mentally out of it I don't understand how that happened. And unlike 2006, the last time this happened, Andy clearly hit a rock bottom and then made a drastic change and started working his way back. This is going in the other direction, started out on a high and has then been on a steep downward spiral since. Not exactly a good sign.

Allez-Alejo

i think the rain delay helped andy some. before it i thought mardy was definitely playing better than andy, but with mardy dropping the first set after serving to stay in when they got back... mmm, i won't be too surprised if andy wins now. but maybe mardy will get his groove back.

well, tbf, djokovic was playing pretty poorly in that match, so andy didn't have to do much in it (though he still managed to get broken when serving for the match the first time :lol:). and before the rain delay (the ~hour long one), to me, mardy was playing better than andy, and it looks like mardy's getting that play back and andy's not doing much to try and stop it, so...

but yeah, it's still pretty ridiculous that andy's not able to close out these matches when he has the chance and should be. i wonder what's going on in that head of his. he's usually much stronger.

ps. Mardy's got the skinniest legs ever! I don't even know how he manages to run.

Deboogle!.
08-21-2010, 10:23 PM
but if he had beaten sod in 2 sets maybe he would've had more left for today. that match really took a lot out of him. Losing a set to Stakhovsky in the first round was also unnecessary. He can't throw sets away like that at the USO if he's not 100% physically. Even a day off won't be able to help him in best of 5 matches. Perhaps he had trouble closing it out because he knew he wouldn't physically be able to go 3 sets, but it was still in his head. That was an ugly choke, as were the games against Soderling and Novak, so, it doesn't really bode well for the USO unless his head and his body improve somewhat. Otherwise it'll just be another 3-4 round loss.
