Another shocking thread appeared in GM. Roddick can't beat him unless that guy
gets injured, has an off-day or loses a leg. Don't make me vomit.
OF COURSE, Andy WAS NOT INJURED & NEVER HAD AN OFF-DAY.
I'm sure that EVERYONE HERE KNOWS THAT ANDY REACHED HIS PEAK & WILL NEVER BE LEAN & STRONG ENOUGH to BEAT FED, SAFIN & HEWITT WHEN THEY"RE AT THEIR BEST.
I'm SURE that Andy IS ONE-DIMENSIONAL. :rolleyes:
HE WILL RARELY BEAT THE TOP PLAYERS.

In MTF, totally unmoderated, the duck hunters don't gather together in 1 sad thread, but they have to post the same bullcrap threads repeatedly.
Will the Andy fans stop replying with ridiculous, depressing posts about Andy's future?
I don't need to read "That guy needs to lose a leg for Andy to win."

Brad Gilbert loves Andy. He should show off his magical knowledge in ar.com. Andy must've changed his impression of him long time ago. I was apalled to see his
insecurity and obsession with 155 mph serves, especially during Davis Cup.
He's got to stop acting like he's a loser. If he just enjoys doing commercials (like the ESPN one I saw last night) and joking around instead of prepariing for matches, he won't win any slam.
I really don't understand how his family reacts to his laziness and lousy coaching.
The arguments with umpires don't bother me as much as his acceptance of failure. He must care about every tournament.

well, like andy, i cant seem to beat roger federer either. i mean, ive come close on occasion but his scary calls of 'come on' in a weird ass roger way always seem to put me off.....damnhim!

And Deb, this was the first year that they made it mandatory for all Honors and AP classes to do science fair. But apparently, this new rule is not going over so well and they may not make it mandatory next year.

But I don't know...I mean I'm all stressed about it now and will be until it is due but if I end up doing really well on it I will want to do it again and then regret it once I am in this position again. It is a vicious cycle.

Andy isn't the smirking, mean-spirited type, so I hate it when others show that behaviour in front of him.

I almost puke when I see players act like they're superior people, especially when Andy makes an unforced error.

I don't want Andy to talk arrogantly and to give fake celebrations after tourney wins. ;) :devil:

I was upset when Andy started behaving like Gilbert
(acting like white trash on the court + pretending that 2003 was perfect just because he saved 4 matchpoints + became #1).
Of course, he couldn't end the macho, immature behaviour that he learned from friends/family/athletes, but he can be his natural, sweet self again.
I hope and think he won't feel as helpless and hopeless like he did before 2005.
