Tournements that Andy is due to win!

I would say the number 1 tourny Andy is due to win is Wimbly :) , second to that is probably Aussie Open :) .

He always plays really well at both and has had some great matches at both. I hope this year, he gets his dues because he has paid them.

My list then goes like this...

1.Wimbledon
2.Austrailian Open
3.Masters Cup
4.Any European clay event...lol...any will do. :o

I agree that the #1 tournament he is due to win is Wimbledon. The second would be AO. Then IMO the Indian Wells AMS.

Wimbledon, obviously.:p

Then IW, would be awesome to see him win all 4 TMS events played on outdoor hardcourts. Plus the weather conditions should really favor him, though he needs to stop losing dumb matches there (03 QF to Rainer and 04 QF to Henman).

Wimby hands down :yeah: and its gonna happen next year coz of late i do not stop having dreams of Andy holding that golden trophy with a large standing ovation behind( including the umpire and linesmen, ball boys even cheering him meaning his perfomance would have been quit extraordinary ;) :))him.( actually I had that dream twice so far!) But starting with a win at AO would be also good :worship:

1.Wimbledon, Halle-even John McEnroe can win this
2.Austrailian Open
3.Masters Cup
4.Clay events, including minor ones
5.Everything else

There's Smarty Andy, who never slows down. He mows down his damn heroes too.
He never underestimates any opponent & never overestimates himself.

There's Bad Andy, the impressionable one who pretends he's stupid.
He tells himself, " I can afford to lose to people I respect."
This shallow, lazy, weak guy likes to date any smily girl who desperately beckons for attention.

nah let's be serious. I think he can win Queens, a few hardcourt TMS's, NO clay European tournaments (apart from St. Poelten http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/froehlich/6925.gif ). I also think he can win AO or USO but I don't think he can beat Rogi in Wimby unless the Swiss gets injured or smthg like that.

If we're talking about tourneys that Andy hasn't yet won that it's "time" for him to win, obviously I'm gonna go with the majority and say Wimby with AO a relatively close 2nd. I'd also really like to see him snag one of the indoor TMS titles - or actually any title on carpet. It's really time he win one :retard: And as others have said, IW. B/c it's the only North American Masters that he's missing, and the conditions there are so much faster than in Miami yet, as Naldo said, he has :bs: losses there :o

IW-
Just like elsewhere, Andy was too busy showing off 143 mph serves, even with poor fitness. Then, he did that again in Masters Cup against Schuttler.
He lost a matchpoint in Legg Mason '03. He kept slicing the ball badly in Paris '03.
As a result, happy-go-lucky Andy Wiener tragically ruined the overhead after kissing up to Henman. (IW)
Wiener isn't Jimmy Connors, that's for sure.
On the bright side, Andy let it be known that he's no one's bitch.
Safin & Haas found out fast.
The future decides his life, not the past.

Don't mind me, iza. I like to smack Andy around.

Yeah, this was one of the best things of his year... three straight wins over Safin, two of them after Safin hit his form and was really playing great, should really be good for his confidence. Same with beating Haas twice in a row finally :)

The future decides his life, not the past.

More Bullcrap. Clueless people spouting off about Andy's lack of skills.
They obviously haven't seen his true potential and they haven't seen how brainwashed, completely weak & lazy he was after he won USO.

It will be A TRAGIC WASTE OF TIME if Goldfine makes Andy negative and scared of opponents. Andy looked distracted and moved stiffly when he was around Gilbert, McEnroe and other timid people.

Joachim Johansson is a major force to reckon with in 2005 and Federer needs to watch out for this young man's brutal forehand (that took Roddick out of the US Open). He is improving by the match and also has a good all round game, yet I think Federer will prevail through the course of the year. The only way Hewitt, Safin or Roddick can beat Federer is when they play their A plus game and Federer plays his C minus game. Anything beyond that will be a massacre on Federer's part.

I guess the desperate boneheads in the media are as stupid as anti-Andy trolls. :rolleyes:

Don't worry about Duck Hunt. They want to get a reaction from you and to bump that thread up with the other trash threads.
The Roddick Depreciation thread was renamed to "Duck Hunt" by Rebecca.
She even admitted to me that she didn't appreciate the rude remarks that weren't
"light-hearted."
Hypocritical of her..of course.
She bet her money on Nalbandian during USO semifinal '03, so she started mocking and insulting fans here & @WTAWORLD. She's a David fan...
Fedex, rosie, sigmagirl, georgewhitler..etc. share her double standards.

Definitely Wimbledon, as I think his game is almost better suited for grass than it is for hardcourts now. :wavey: And it's not like Roger is much easier to dispose of on hardcourts now either. ;) So if Andy continues to make his one-step improvements at Wimby, he "should" win it next year. ;)

AO or Paris TMS comes in second, imo. Personally I thought Andy would have won that tournament (Paris Bercy) last year had he eeked out that close loss to Tim in the semis. Carpet suits his game perfectly and I don't know why he hasn't snatched a title there yet (probably the European tourney thing, ya know).

Andy's resume lacks breadth (when compared to his depth) so it'd be nice for him to win IW or another European clay tourney. He was almost due for a big win after his 2002 Rome showing but I guess he sacrificed his clay game for grass. *sarcasm, I think*

Then of course I'd love to see him 3-peat at Queens or Indy. This doesn't really go under the "which title is he overdue/due to win" but winning these would put him with only a select list of players who have won any tournament 3 times, much less 3-in-a-row.

Deboogle!.
12-24-2004, 10:34 PM
I know what you mean about 3-peat. I'd like to see him do it too, just b/c it's :cool: :yeah: I'd especially like it to be Queens, b/c it's a tourney with a great history, but there are so many players who play well on grass now, it's going to be hard.

If Andy keeps improving his volleying/transition game and keeps getting more comfortable on it, he will be VERY hard to beat on grass IMO. but he's gotta keep doing it and he's gotta keep increasing his fitness and stuff. Just getting fitter will help on clay, and I guess I'm kinda hoping against hope that the fact that he could hang with top clay-courters on their home turf on the absolute slowest clay-court possible will have given him a little confidence.

i was watching Andy's USO 2002 Match against Chela and courier made the comment how Andy really was still uncomfortable in Europe at that point (so he was like late 19/almost 20 at that point) and that he could play much better at home where he wasn't "homesick" (yes, Jim used that word)... I think that now he's 22/almost 23 when he's in Europe - this is no excuse anymore. There are some players like the Aussies, Asians, and South Americans (among others of course) who almost never, if EVER, get to play at home. So he's just gotta suck it up and deal with it and learn to be more comfortable there. It's not like he's unpopular in any of those places - he gets nice crowd reaction pretty much everywhere he goes. So there's no reason for him to be uncomfortable anymore. I think in Paris last year, he was also really reaching exhaustion stage and he just couldn't pull out those tiebreaks. This is another reason he needs to be more careful with his scheduling in the future!

Plus, for the next several years (at least), TMC is going to be waaaaaay overseas, so yea, it's time to step up.

Andy Roddick while obviously talented and driven doesn't have the
physical constitution to have a BIG career in the men's game. He may
win a couple slams ala Rafter, but he'll never be a Sampras or an
Agassi IMO. At the ripe old age of 19 he's already crashed out of 2
grand slams with injuries.

Some of Roddick's implosions:
Cramps, Roland Garros 2001, Almost lost to Chang because of cramping
Strained Hamstring, Roland Garros 2001, retires against Hewitt in the
QF
Sprained Ankle, Cincinatti TMS 2001, loses to kuerten 1st round
7-6,6-1 probably because of ankle.
Swollen Right Foot, Hong Kong Salem Open 2001, retires 1st round
Injured Ankle, Australian Open 2002, retires 2nd round


I hope he proves me wrong, but it appears the genetic makeup just
isn't there for the A-Rod.

He had a ton of injury problems early in his career, but since he's started wearing the ankle braces and stuff like that, it hasn't been a problem. He hasn't had that problem since Delray in 2003, thank goodness. he made it through 2004 with nothing major. Thank god and knock on wood that he can have more years like this. If he keeps Dougie on staff and keeps improving his fitness, he should be able to stay relatively injury-free.

Something else that Jim Courier said in the 2002 USO match against Chela is that he was kinda fragile but that as he kept growing and improving his fitness that he'd get stronger and have less injury problems. So far, that has turned out to be true. *knocks on wood again and crosses fingers*

J. Corwin
12-25-2004, 08:14 AM
Just interested, why do you think this Jace? :)

His serve, his improving volleys, his increasing confidence and belief on it, and most of all, the turn in results (relative grass versus hardcourts results)? lol :)

I think his groundstrokes and blocky returns penetrate a little bit more and stay low as well.

Wimbledon, of course!!!!

(for Andy) Wimbledon is three times more important than any fucking European claycourt event and RG together and, more importantly, it's the kind of surface Andy is naturally successful.

He can care for winning on European clay after he has won Wimbledon... so far it would be enough if he improved that much on clay that he doesn't bow out in the 1st/2nd rounds of most clay tournaments again next season. Making it to a few clay TMS quarters and maybe a 4th round at Roland Garros would be enough so far, IMO.

I'm going with Wimbledon. Andy has shown what he can do this year at the F against Federer and he has a very good game on grass. It would be nice for him to win the AO this January as well but IMO, he is DOOMED to win Wimbly this year over any of the other GS just because he's shown that he could win it and hopefully he stays healthy and steps up a little more for '05. Good luck, Andy!

Can anyone be really sure of that? Andy definitely didn't play his A plus game this year.

I may be nutty and wrong, but how do you describe some people who don't admit they're narrow-minded? It's not like I aspire to be GWH and Fedex.

He'll get Wimby after Tim Henman does. (Hey if Ivanisevic can pull it off, why not Henman)

Marat missed a lot of 1st serves and had to save break points at 15-40.
He also went down 0-30 several times before serving his way out of that.

Marat was down 5-2 in the tiebreak 4th set.
Federer missed 1st serves & double faulted, then hit the ball between his legs to lose his match point. He managed to serve 22 aces.
