Everyone thought he would not fall down the rankings when he was playing exhibitions + DC. Clueless media/pundits/commentators.

The thought of Andy not improving in his suffocating environment, never occurred to the Roddicks.

Hitting the ball earlier with better backhand by adjusting foot positioning
....and serving smartly weren't ideas either.
Minor techniques that kid players love to practice..
Apparently the Roddicks care about exhibitions instead of about winning tournaments.

I just noticed Andy didn't make the SF in the USO apart from the year he was champion. Oh dear.

Sampras said. "From what I see, he is able to play at a
higher level with less effort than the rest - a bit like me. You see

Excerpts from Wilander interview

History says Hewitt faces many unhappy returns after 25th birthday
February 04, 2006

Of the sport's 26 multiple grand slam winners in the men's open era, two thirds of their titles were won before the age of 25.

All-time great Mats Wilander and fellow former world No.1-ranked players Jim Courier, Yevgeny Kafelnikov and Gustavo Kuerten are among a list of celebrated players never to win a big one after turning 25.

Bjorn Borg won the last of his 11 the day after turning 25.

Boris Becker had collected five of his six slams by 23, John McEnroe was unable to conjure an eighth beyond 25 and Stefan Edberg's well had also run dry by 26. He had won four of his six majors before his 25th birthday.

I think when you're playing every point, every shot with your mind, not your body, at a certain point you will run out. There's a certain number of balls you can hit under pressure.

"Someone like Pete Sampras, he could stay longer because he didn't hit that many balls. He didn't take as much mental grind. Mental intensity is the key."

After landing four majors by 22, Wilander was forced to change his game as the power and aggression of Becker, Edberg, Ivan Lendl and company threatened to pass him by.

"I changed my game, not completely - I still did what I did well - but I added a few things. I added a lot more serve and volley, a lot more slice backhand. With that, your attitude changes because then suddenly it's like 'whoa, the great thing is to serve and volley now'.

Lleyton knows how to slice the ball. Or I know he does - he just needs to use it aggressively and he needs to use it for a purpose.

"He needs to serve and volley with a purpose, not as a surprise tactic.

"I did it after I won four majors and I didn't win one for two years. So I thought 'well, I have to do something'."

Wilander proceeded to snare three more slams in 1988

"You've got to take it to them. It's not enough to keep counter-punching. The guys are too good."

There have been some players to prosper later in their careers, most notably Sampras and Lendl, who each amassed seven slams after turning 25.

But they truly are exceptions, the pair contesting an amazing 37 major finals between them with Sampras winning on 14 occasions and Lendl eight.

Jimmy Connors accrued his eight slams at a steady rate between 21 and 31, grabbing four either side of his 25th birthday, while five of Agassi's eight have come after his 25th birthday.

Andy may have nice strokes on a water bed.
He's keeping his head a little above water at the Wimbledon duck pond.
I love rain delays.
The duck has trouble paying attention as the bullets fire at him.

Unlike other headcases, Andy returns for more trouble
....and fans know things start clicking only when he turns on the light in his head and thinks for himself.

Daddies/Mommies at ESPN love him as much as

5- Ivan Ljubicic
6- Ex-Rodd fans
