Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy: Cincinatti SF vs Hewitt: He was in form and took him out!

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?: vs. Verdasco, in Rome. Gave Verdasco an ace on his match point and ended up losing the match.

Match that made you cringe:

Biggest disappointment of 2005: vs. Paul-Henri Mathieu, Montreal 1R, lost...

His best win: vs. Hewitt Cincy SF

His worst loss: vs. Gilles Muller US Open

Best Roddick Match (win or lose): vs. Braciali (? misspelt) Wimbledon 2R

Best moment (on or off court): When he wiggled his butt at Wimbledon ;)

Worst moment (on or off court): Eh, not sure.

Worst choke: Eek. not sure... I probably agree with Deb, though, Roland Garros vs. Acasuso

Best Andy quote in 2005: The Wimbledon "What does it smell or taste like" thing or "Hopefully sitting beside a really good-looking wife" LOL

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?: Hewitt, mainly!

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005: Australian Open

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006: Australian Open :lol:

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?: No :o

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?: No opinion... I think Andy's problems right now are internal, nothing a new coach could help. Maybe get a psychologist.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?: Backhand and net game!

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?: everything can be worked on, nothing is perfect, right? :)

Best outfit: Shirtless with shorts :lol:

Best commercial: The one with the girl in the Lexus yelling "TURBO TURBO TUBRO!" :lol:

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?: Concrete results, worse, but he's getting better at certains aspects of his game so it's all good! :)

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005? 8/10 :)

Biggest desire for 2006: Andy to play more doubles! It really helps his game, and he proved in Madrid he can win!

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy
Andy/Lleyton, Montreal.

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?
Andy/Verdasco, when he had the match because of a df yet he said the second serve had been in. :) Yeah he lost the match, but says a lot of him.

Match that made you cringe
Acasuso/Andy, If the concept I have of cringe is correct :sobbing:

Biggest disappointment of 2005
USO...

His best win
Against Lleyton in Montreal :)

His worst loss
The one that hurt him the most? I would say the USO and Wimbledon. The one that hurt ME the most?... USO.

Best Roddick Match (win or lose)
I would say one of the best was the one against Hyrbati in Paris. And the one against Lleyton was pretty damn good too.

Best moment (on or off court)
The day he hired Dean :hearts: and when he beat Lleyton :)

Worst moment (on or off court)
First round losses in USO and Cincy.

Worst choke
vs. Acasuso or Verdasco.

Best Andy quote in 2005
"Because I can sing and dance - bailemos".

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Tough one... I'd say Rafa but you know, I still haven't seen them play on hardcourt. It'd be interesting. But I'd say him, Marat if he comes back healthy and well, Lleyton. Same as usual.

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
AO. Maybe I had a tiny little hope in Wimby but... yeah you know who he was facing.

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
Sigh... I don't know, I mean... I wish I could say Wimbledon or USO or AO but... I don't think he'll win neither of them. So yeah I don't know. I'd say the one he has the biggest shot at is the AO.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
NO! :p Sorry, I'm very protective of my Andy. :p

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?
No. Never. Ever. EVER!

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
His BH and volleys. The latter mainly.

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
His brain.

Best outfit
Blue shirt and white shorts :hearts:

Worst outfit
Everything looks good... but I guess the ones in the cover of this magazine.. I can't remember which, the one where he was wearing that shirt that had 4485476564 colours on. :lol:
On court? None, all of them were alright.

Best commercial
LEXUS! All of them :lol:

Worst commercial
The Mojo one :o

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
Uh... that's a tough question. I mean, he has improved a lot regarding his tennis skills, as in volleys and backhand but he is mentally weaker, or so I think. Also, he has won 5 titles this year plus a Wimbledon final and AO semifinal. It's a really hard call...

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
Out of 10? an 8. Maybe 7.50 considering the stupid losses he's had but yeah, and 8 is fine. He's still #3 in the end :shrug:


I have a question!
Funniest Andy moment.
I say when he went and ran in his boxers outside in the cold :haha: Or when he sang the quote i quoted as the best quote (: lol.

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy
Beating Lleyton in Cincy- not just the win, but the manner of the win.
Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?
Nando match, again. His post-final wimbledon speech (they always make me proud to be his fan because they make my heart smile and then I laugh, lots!). Also, all the Charity/Foundation work makes me proud, though that's not strictly a moment. Heh.
Match that made you cringe
A good few too many, I guess losing to Muller@USO sticks out, though not the maner of the defeat- just the whole 'talk him up- mojo rubbish' that surrounded the whole thing. It just felt deflating afterwards- and teh mojo stuff made me cringe.
Biggest disappointment of 2005
Wimbledon final (even though it was as expected), RG performance (as usual), Davis Cup match vs Ljubo...I couldn't really pick just one answer to that!
His best win
Hewitt, Cincy match/Hrbaty, Paris AMS.
His worst loss
USO vs Muller.
Best Roddick Match (win or lose)
vs Ferrer in Lyon.
Best moment (on or off court)
Beating Lleyton (C'monnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!11!!1!!)
Worst moment (on or off court)
ranting at the ump, AO
Worst choke
Acasuso match, yep.
Best Andy quote in 2005
:shrug: off the top of my head:Q. Gosh, that's pressure.

ANDY RODDICK: Bud, are you feeling the pressure? What does it feel like? How are you coping with being the only journalist to wear a shirt like that?

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Anyone good. |:

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
I thought the AO (blasted hewitt)

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
I don't think he will win one, sadly. Most likely to win USO.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
I don't care

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?
No, he should stick at it with Dean, as some things gamewise are definitely moving in the right direction (volleys, omgheart111!!!1!11).

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Volleying, his backhand slice has improved very slightly...

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Sort your head out. Also, stand closer to that damn baseline. KthanksAndy.

Best outfit
anything with colour.

Worst outfit
The white but I blame Wimbledon for that, too.

Best commercial
Process of elimination only says the Lexus ones win by a landslide.

Worst commercial
Need you ask? Mjomoojhjshsjo or however you say it. :mad:

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
In terms of game, he is much improved, his head this year was much, much worse. So a mixture of the two.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
B for game, D- for 'Where's your head at?' mentality. So I'd say a C overall.

and yes, he should be doing better.

Against Hewitt finally

Best moment (on or off court)
When he did the whole balimos thing :haha:

Worst commercial
Do I smell the M word? and no not my name :ras:

Best Andy quote in 2005
The tag-team power rangers quotation.

ides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Hopefully, it won't be Andy's brain -- like it was in 2005.

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
None. I do think Australia was a wasted opportunity where Andy's 2005 TB travails began in the Hewitt match.

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
I will take any slam, but I am not confident. I hope Andy will win Wimbledon -- my favorite player winning my favorite slam.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
No. Andy needs to focus on tennis.

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?
No. However, they may need to bring in a better strategist.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Better physical conditioning.

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Temper control and when to approach the net.

Best outfit/Worst outfit
Pass. I cannot remember what I wore to work today, let alone what Andy wore this season.

Best commercial
Lexus commercials.

Worst commercial
MOJO - setting aside the US Open debacle, the ads were just cheesy.

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
Same.

On the positive, Andy did better in most of his tournaments than in 2004 (other than the US Open and Canada). I give Andy a pass regarding Miami because he was injured.

On the negative, competition went up with the rise of Nadal.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
I would give Andy a "B" -- but I am a soft grader.

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Andy :o

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
AO and/or USO, but I really wanted him to win Wimbledon

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
USO :tape:
But, I still want that Wimbledon title

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
--

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?[b]
No - I think Dean has done a great job, in terms of improving his physical fitness, and improving several aspects of his game. Moreover, most loses are due to some malfunction in his head :ras: So, can't really blame Dean for those...

[b]What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
In spells, backhand, volley, net-game

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Consistency in ALL aspects of the game (and that includes confidence), return

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy
Suprised? Uh... i'd say the Hrbaty match where he won like 1 and 2. Impressed would be when he pulled one over Hewitt for like the second time ever. Woot worthy indeed! I was impressed at how he dealt with having a back injury during Paris, especially against Ferrer :hug:

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?
Conceding the MP against Verdasco was good character, good sportsmanship. That made me real proud. Also bouncing back from the first round loss in montral and getting to the final of Toronto was pretty cool. Although the first thing shouldn't really have happened lol. Winning Queens too.

Match that made you cringe
That should be plural and i'm not gonna list them. I have things to do before i turn 20 :p

Biggest disappointment of 2005
Oh my god, Muller 1st round. In the US. In a slam. On his birthday. The less said about it the better. Also not progressing in the RG. Acasuso brings up some bad memories. The Dream team crashing out 1st round too :sad:

His best win
Against Hewitt, i'd say. Or i liked the 5-setters in Wimbledon...uh, what was it? Bracciali, Grosjean (?) and Johansson. All pretty tough. Good job.

His worst loss
Mathieu, 1st round.
Muller 1st round
And to top it off, Ginepri in Indy :o
(i didn't like the Acasuso choke. That loss was BAD)

Best Roddick Match (win or lose)
I liked Hewitt one again, Ferrero 2nd round was awesome.

Best Andy quote in 2005
There's too many and i can't remember. I liked the one about reading in the dark from wimbledon and making sandwiches with no pressure. (very paraphrased lol)

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Hmmm..tow groups of people. People in the top ten. And people not. It's Andy, duh :o

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
Frankly, i didn't bother thinking about it.

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
I won't bother again. Just to be safe.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
If it helps him, SURE THING.

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?[b]
No i don't think it's that simple. Deans obviously helping him, you can see it translating into wins slowly. He needs something though. Maybe a co-coach...or something.

[b]What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Movement around court, his footwork is a little better. Forecourt game is definitely better. Percentage serving i guess too.

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
EVERYTHING. There's not really anything to be complacent about now, is there? :ras: Work on the BH DTL. That shot is hot. And it works. Returning so he can break serve because most of the time the TBs are just not fun :(

Best outfit
The blue tee (: :hearts: So pretty!

Worst outfit
Um...i don't know. I don't think his RBK stuff was good this year. The Lacoste stuff is cool...all black is boring though!

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
Hmm..i think it averages out the same. They each were better and worse in different respects.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?[/QUOTE]
Ahhh, let me see. A consistent year with several shockingly low dips...that would get a C i guess. That's pulled up by ending the year 3 with 5 titles. For his own record i'd say like D or D+.

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy Andy's win against Hewitt shows that he has the game to beat the top players.

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan. Match against Verdasco where he gave him the point on match point even though he ultimately lost.

Match that made you cringe. Match against Brachiali where he almost lost and got in a lot of trouble for supposedly being rude.

Biggest disappointment of 2005
Roland Garros Match against Acasuso. He should have won that match.

His best win Match against Hrbatey where he won 6-1 6-2 is the best scoreline Roddick has had this year.

His worst loss Loss to Hewitt. If Roddick had won that match (which he had a great chance to) there would be a good chance that he would have won the finals and who knows what that would have done for his confidence and ranking. Unfortunately in the process of losing to Hewitt, Roddick was crucified because of a bathroom break, got Hewitt in his head, forgot how to play tiebreakers, and lost a lot of confidence.

Best Roddick Match (win or lose) Davis cup against Roddick. Roddick winning on clay and in 5 sets is virtually unheard of.

Best moment (on or off court) Winning any of his titles especially Queens.

Worst moment (on or off court) Losing 3 consecutive first round matches.

Worst choke U.S. Open match against Muller on Andy's best surface.

Best Andy quote in 2005 Too many to pick from.

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006? His mojo

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005 All of them (a bit wishful thinking there)

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006 All of them provided he makes the improvements i recommend.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006? If it makes him happy and helps him win.

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach? He should get a physcoligist and keep Dean. A coach can only do so much.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Volleys, Backhand

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006? Don't want to be mean but here is always room for improvement. Here are some of the things i think he needs to work on :

Forehand- Needs to start hitting it with confidence a foot inside the baseline not a foot inside the service box. Also it would be cool if Roddick could come up with some angles once in a while like Fed does.

Backhand- Be able to hit in consistenly especially when under pressure. Hit some down the line. Try to get a few winners with it.

Volleys- Going in the right direction but needs improvment. Also needs to improve approach shot. Can't hit it straight to the person and expect to make a good volley.

Fitness- Really good, but just continue to keep working on it.

Serve- As good as it gets, but of course Andy can keep working on placement.

Serve Return- Must do something so he at least gets the ball back into the court. It wouldn't help if he could go on the offensive by hitting a good service return.

Hit overheads with authority again.

Work on the mental game.

Keep working on movement which is kind of tied in to fitness.

Best outfit That blue shirt at queens

Worst outfit The 2004 U.S. Open shirt. That thing was so ugly that i don't care what year we are in. Also it would help if Roddick could get dry-cool material.

Best commercial Lexus commericals

Worst commercial Andy's mojo

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year? Worse

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005? It probably would be an A for just about anyone but i'm going to give Roddick a B- just because of his lack of big wins and stupid losses.

Worse. 2004 he was two points and a set a way from Wimbledon, he did equal or better in all the majors(except AO), and he won a masters in 04.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?

For a top ten guy, the number 3....C+

Um, it it helps him?

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?
CuteDean should stay. But he should get together with Vinnay's sports psychologist or something.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Serve placement rather then power. But there have been more dfs, so wtf.

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Keeping his shots PAST the service line. :o

Yes, that's great year for Robby Ginepri, Mardy Fish or Taylor Dent, but not for America's main man. Roddick went backwards in results and confidence, but we will give him and coach Dean Goldfine this: His game does look more well rounded now.
