I guess the Marat fans are a still peeved about his match this week. Thanks Star, for getting it (again). If Marat worked and tried even half as hard as JMG did in his match against PimPim yesterday, he would still be in this tournament. Shame really...

It's funny, I've been very neutral about Andy for about a year now, despite the fact that I used to be involved in a fan site for him and he remembered me when he saw me in February, but the hate for him and his fans on this board is really beginning to turn me back to him. I was originally a fan of his because of his game, because of the way he threw himself into every point he played, because it was so obvious that he LOVED being on court whether he was winning or losing, because he practically had to be dragged off court at RG against Hewitt even though he was injured, because his forehand can make it across the net at Mach speeds, because he hugged Gonzo after he lost to him in Cincy and said it was the most fun match he had ever played, because his service motion is not like anyone else's, because he looks like a train wreck when he approaches the net, and he doesn't care he just wants to win the point, because he regularly applauds fine shots by his opponents and I had never seen another player do that as much as he did, because Pete made tennis look like an unattainable art, but Andy made it look like anybody could play if they tried hard enough so I picked up my racquet again for the first time in a decade, lost 20 pounds and became a healthier and happier person, and because I met so many cool people that were also fans of his.

So, sorry if I did not fulfill your requirement of only talking about his game, but I don't know enough about analyzing tennis to do that. I just know that when I go to a tournament or turn on my TV, there are certain players that I like to see playing (okay, about 20 of them) and Andy is one of them. I think it's time for a subboard for the Andy haters to post their threads in because I am really getting tired of this topic clogging up GM when we have much more interesting and important things to discuss.

Many people like his power game, deal with it. I also like Federers game. How can anyone not? I like them both for different reasons.

Not another Roddick thread! *buries forehead in hands*

Fee summed it up pretty well- his game might not be as artistic and fluid as Federer's, but his power game is a nice variation- it's another style to look at in addition to the many other styles of play exhibited in the top 10.

It's the fire he brings on court, the mentality, the "I'm gonna take you on and knock you out no matter how bigger than me you are" in-your-face mentality that I like. I do not agree that he is boring to watch- I am never bored watching him play, there is always something going on, wether its a howitzer serve into the corner on break point down, or a down the line forehand bomb after a lengthy rally, or his amusing interaction with the umpire and/or crowd, his facial expressions and gestures.

And just for the record- I am not a teenybopper, I have been following the sport now for several years and have supported and watched all kinds of players from Sampras to Agassi to Becker to Courier to Ivanisevic to Muster to Rafter to Hewitt to Safin to Federer to Ferrero to Coria and on and on and on.

I don't know what you mean by your use of the word 'caricatural' (it might be a translation problem). And I don't think I've posted 'several times' about Marat, at least not since his loss this week. My first post was meant to be as useless as this thread, and to show that perhaps this poster should not take his frustration at his player out another player. No offense taken, no fuss created.

Deboogle!.
09-04-2004, 08:42 PM
Fine, I will write about Andy's tennis.

I love his serve, that is a natural god-given talent that he has that ability. He also has the mental ability to go for it when it matters the most (see: Match point 2003 USO SF, Match point 2003 AO QF, and the list goes on). For me it is absolutely exhilarating to see him plow down an ace at 140+mph. It gets my blood flowing. So what if it's the cornerstone of his game. I love it.

I love his inside-out forehand, how he can keep pulling you further and further out into that corner until he draws a forced error or a winner, I think it's pretty special. He's had the exact same technique since he was a kid and it's just one of those great signature shots that players have.

His overheads are unreal. I have a video file of one from his second round match at Wimbledon this year that I could watch over and over all day. The way he can either smash them flat or slice them away from the opponent is worth a :worship: in my book.

He has improved his defense and scrambling and all that kind of stuff and it's even winning him points here and there now. One of the more understated improvements he has made in the past year, IMO, it's tough to get a ball by him now and for a big bumbling guy, his movement is also a lot better lately since he started with Graybo.

He is serve-volleying much more, and with pretty decent success. Maybe the technique isn't pretty, but he's showing the dedication to add this facet to his game, even if it fails. But he has played a few matches this year where his volleying was especially good - at key moments, and has helped him win matches he might otherwise have lost (the Safin match at Indian Wells is the one that comes to mind the quickest).

You don't have to like him or his game or his personality to be able to admit that, even though he ended last year at #1, he has improved MANY facets of his game.

And I'm not a teenybopper either, thank you very much.

09-04-2004, 08:50 PM
you should be a HUGE sampras fan then since he did all that and volleyed consistenly...

fisher12190
09-04-2004, 08:57 PM
His serve motion is ugly and 2 see him serving aces all the time isn't pretty. If you look at sampras his serve motion looked natural.

The fact that you like fast 140+ serves shows that you don't enjoy tennis, you enjoy serving.

His serve and volley hits into the net all of the time.

I don't mind his forehand but I think he over uses it. No variety whatsoever.

His backhand? What backhand.

His dropshot? NOP

I'll agree about the overhead, tho. Most of the time when he gets to hit that shot the point is over.

3/6 for Roddick. 50% good serve, good overhead, goodforhand.

5/6 for Federer 83.333% no dropshot. but we must give Roger more credit for inventing new shots....

Blaze
09-04-2004, 09:03 PM
Sorry for changing the topic but I didn't want to start another thread and since this one was the hottest i decided to post here.

I know this has being asked before but I hear most people saying that the current core of players on tour don't have personality. When someone missbehaves during a match you always hear the commentators saying, "Oh he has so much personality." When someone is calm and collected, they have no personality. Therefore, is personality defined as the open display of emotions or to some extend rudeness on court or what? :confused:

fisher12190
09-04-2004, 09:06 PM
Roddick's "personality" is being an asshole on the court, throwing rackets, and arguing with the umpire. You don't argue with them just collect yourself and continue playing. If you argue you are probably worse off in future calls, and you will probably play bad after that.

Deboogle!.
09-04-2004, 09:19 PM
you should be a HUGE sampras fan then since he did all that and volleyed consistenly...

I am. Bigger than Andy, even. Good judgement calls otherwise, though HAHAHA. So anyone who enjoys good serving isn't a real tennis fan? Did I say that was ALL I like?? Oh god, thank you for breaking up the monotony of my day with this amusing stuff. I really appreciate it. Don't talk about overusing forehands unless you talk about Moya, he's about a million times worse than Andy. his backhand is worse, and he runs around it MUCH more often. Andy is actually working on his backhand and trying to improve it where Moya just keeps running around it. But no one whines about Moya's lack of a backhand. :yawn:

And, something being "pretty" or not is irrelevant. If you like watching "pretty players" then watch someone else, that's fine. But don't berate those of us that put other aspects of a player in higher priority. Whether a player plays "prettily" or not has absolutely no bearing on whether I like him or not. If you fail to see that there is more than one reason why someone might like a particular player, then you're farther gone than I thought. But again, keep it coming though, I need it for amusement.

Blaze, interesting points. Look at someone like Ollie today. He totally drew the crowd in with his emotion, his heart. But it was all positive emotion. He didn't yell at anyone or anything. Same with Baghdatis the other night, Nadal last night, etc. Exhibiting your personality can be positive. And it can be negative like what Massu and Nalbandian have done in the past week, and it can be a combination of both like what Andy will sometimes do. I'm not so much a fan of the negative stuff, sure, sometimes Andy says funny things to the umps and it's good for a laugh but I would much much rather he just get over it and stick to positive energy instead. But I agree, it's quite the double standard for the players. Not all that different to the double standard put upon some of the posters here at MTF :)

fisher12190
09-04-2004, 09:21 PM
let me get this straight you enjoy matches where serving is dominating the matches with aces and shots you can't get back? BORING.

I'm not talking about pretty players. I'm talking about fluid artistic and looking natural when playing tennis/serving.

Deboogle!.
09-04-2004, 09:27 PM
did I say that? no. ok then :) I enjoy the occasional ace. Plus, Andy is not the only player I enjoy watching. If I only watched one kind of player all day long that would be boring. But an ace here and there is exciting to me. not interesting tennis, but exciting.

Just for the record, Andy's not even on the top 20 for Aces so far in the US Open. Where's all the hating on PimPim and Moya and Feli Lopez and Gambill and Pavel and all the other players who are averaging more aces per match than Andy? OK then.

I will reiterate, I don't care if someone is fluid or artistic looking. That's not what intrigues me. If that's what intrigues you and draws you into a player or into being interested in a match, then that is GREAT and I'm happy for you that there are players out there that satisfy your interests. But it's quite a good thing that we all like different things, no? Why do you care so much what I like?

Keep going :)

But other hilarious statistics are that Fisher has (circa) 69 posts. The first one was anti-Roddick, and it appears about 92.8% of his total posts have been anti-Roddick. And he says others have no life? :haha:

Devoting his entire posting career on MTF to negative posts about one player...... oh yeah.... and asking for bad reps.

Please Please don't bad rep the guy. He just thrives on negative attention

:wavey: Fisher.

I think a fan is a fan and it doesn't really matter their reasoning. It's not Andy's fault that he's good-looking and has the kind of personality that might appeal to hormoning young ladies. But to assume that teenage girls are ALL he has is just narrow-minded. And to assume that every teenage female who likes him is a teenybopper who just thinks he's cute. Teenagers are capable of reasoned and logical thought as well.

OHHHHHHHH FISHER IT HURTS IT HURTS OHHHHHHHHHH

a teeny bopper = a young fan who likes the players looks and is obsessed with how players look.

so of course there will be normal teenage fans, but these arent teeny boppers. i hope you understand what a teeny bopper is now

Deboogle!.
09-04-2004, 10:01 PM
I know what a teenybopper is, thanks. What's your point? If you define a teenybopper as someone who is obsessed with looks, then you've answered your own question as to why Andy has a lot of teenybopper fans, no? That would be a teleological statement and you shouldn't really have to ask the question lol

i HATE him even more after last night. he looks at the speed gun after every serve even if the point is still going on. he lacks respect for the umpire and he also lacks respect for his opponent by hitting easy shots between his legs. and those stare-downs are fucking annoying. his game is so dependent on the intimidation factor, that's why he can't beat federer and can't beat anyone in the top 100 on clay

Roddick on blasting a 152-mile ace at Scoville Jenkins, who was playing his first Open match:

''I just wanted to welcome him to the court. I knew he was a little bit nervous, so I thought that I'd go at him and show him something early on."

Great.

Rick V
09-04-2004, 10:47 PM
It cracks me up that 2 of the bigger Roddick haters on this thread are fans of Safin and Marc Rosset(!).

As for Rosset, the guy was a tennis retard. He was the best example of a boring tennis player if there ever was one. And what did he ever do in a major? The Olympics you say? Pllllease. Face it - the guy had a crap game. He, not Roddick, was one-dimensional. And even that one-dimension sucked! Hence that illustrious career of his.

As for Safin, if total head cases are your thing then Safin is your guy. If being mentally fragile is a great thing then Safin is your guy. If partying with whores the night before your Austarlian Open final with Thomas Johansson (and then having them sit in your box during the match!) is your thing, then Safin is your guy. As for winning the same number of majors as Roddick, you might be forgetting that he is a few years longer on the pro tour. So he's played in a bunch more but still only won 1 (Yes, with all that talent).

And by the way, regarding Roddick's clay court play, he has won a couple of clay court events already in his career beating the likes of Fenando Gonzalez and Coria to name a couple. Look it up. Roddick's not a clay courter but his game is not "laughable" on clay either.

Of course, you're right about this Fisher guy, he sounds suspiciously like that guy who went over the edge a few weeks ago, posting all those anti-Andy threads and ranting in all caps.

I guess Mandy Moore thought he was good looking.

I think he's good looking, but not particularly sexy. There are better looking and sexier guys on the tour, imo, but I don't really just become a fan of a player because I think he's good looking.

Joe B,

I'll try to take a serious stab at answering your question. Part of the reason that Andy has so many young, teenybopperish fans is because of marketing. Now, first, let's admit that he does have those types of fans, that's reality. And most of them don't know anything about tennis and many of them don't seem to care to learn anything. Thankfully, those types of fans DO NOT belong to this forum (well, maybe one but she seems to be trying to learn more about tennis), but they do inhabit the boards at his official site and I just cannot go there anymore. These are the same girls that liked Ashton Kutcher last year and Josh Hartnett the year before that. They like Andy because he looked good in Rolling Stone magazine or whatever. Eventually, some of them will learn more about tennis and become tennis fans (which is good for the game) and some will move on to the next guy who gets a show on the WB network or does a movie with Hillary Duff. It's the nature of teenybopperism, but those are just the observations of someone in the 25 year old plus crowd and I could be completely wrong.

Again, please note that I do not think that any of the Andy fans on this board are teenyboppers, even if some are teenagers. There is a difference. Huge difference.
