Mardy vs. Robby matches are usually pretty good. I don't see Mardy beating Andy in Houston, Andy always plays well in Houston.

i'm really being dead serious. If Andy lost to Mardy on clay he should start thinking about retirement.

no arguments there chicka i'd be worried if he lost to mardy on clay, i'd be worried if he lost to robby on clay but maybe not quite so much.

K Mardy you are so much better than Robby so this score/H2H confuses me.

RANT.
Why must you suck? :o I swear, get your ass together. Technical changes do not come this slowly. :mad: I don't care if this is clay. WIN. NOW.

i think talent wise they're about even actually! but robby fights more.

I'm sorry, JJ, I have to disagree, I think Mardy's talent for tennis far exceeds Robby's. Robby has no weapon whereas Mardy has a great serve, fantastic volley and great backhand. Robby is like a poor man's Hewitt.

I agree, Jen. This is getting REALLY old REALLY fast.

i won't go into that coz you know i can't choose between the two! but i have to say pelase god never compare robby to that evil australian i hate hewitt with a fiery passion!

but anyway mardys problem is still the fight, he doesn't have enough fight and doesn't push himself hard enough, off the court or onit! i do think it's mostly in his head (ditto andy, ditto robby) he's gotta get himself together, but i still believe he'll get there. he has ALOT of potential! he's jsut gotta come to terms with it.

04-19-2005, 11:37 PM
I don't like Hewitt either, but their games are similar - except Robby isn't as fast, strong, consistent, or fiery. I don't think he has a natural flair for tennis like Mardy does, Mardy's game is so natural - when he's playing well it looks so easy for him. Nothing you say will convince me that Robby and Mardy are equally talented.

I didn't say anything about mentality, but yea, at this point Robby is better off than Mardy. But I've also seen Robby choke plenty.

Éowyn
04-20-2005, 12:10 AM
i think they're both as damn frustrating as each other. but at the moment mardy has lost his head and robby has found his! it make s a change robby usually frustrates me more.!
