Yay French Federation, You Got Exactly What You Wanted. Nice Try Anyway, Andy.
 
Rome is next week and Andy actually has significant points to defend.... Where will he even be coming from and when will he arrive? Who knows? :D When's the last time he picked up a racquet? Who knows? :D That means Andy will probably win the title :D

Andy should just honeymoon through the clay season and come back in time for grass. :cool:

These would only be significant points if we didn't really think he was going to compete in the summer hard court season where he has nothing to defend really. So he can EPIC FAIL here but he'll probably win his patented one or two rounds before playing someone better on clay than himself. Madrid should be a really good tourney for him, given the elevation. *ZOOM* *ACE* lol

EDIT:
But also keep in mind he only has points from ROME and then nothing else really for the rest of the year, not just the summer hard court season as I mentioned up there. Andy could be top 4 or 5 realistically with how the next couple months play out.

He's got a final in LA (which I don't think he's playing this year as he's added Indy) and a USO QF to defend, then a lot of points in Beijing. So I wouldn't say he has NO points, but a few rounds at RG and a good wimbledon would certainly help. As for Madrid, I can't imagine Andy doing well there, he couldn't even do well in Madrid when it was on indoor hard. Rome's his best shot at good clay results b/c it plays so much faster.

It's not like he was out all of last summer. It's just that he wasn't playing very well for most if it and was repeatedly injured. He doesn't have much to defend, really it's a huge opportunity for him this year at both US Open and Wimbledon to nab another grand slam. All these years it's been Fed in the way, well he looks like he won't be a factor. So then it's about getting the ranking up, getting some luck and some good draws. He really needs to win a masters this summer. That will give him the confidence. Anyways, getting back on track...by his standards he doesn't have much to defend and his ranking should definitly rise.

As far as Madrid, well, it's hard to say because they haven't had a clay tourney there. He looked pretty good in DC when it was there. I wouldn't mind seeing everyone crash out (like they would at Hamburg) and Andy sneaking into the final to beat some mug like Robredo. I'm dreaming, I know. Back to reality it's time for Andy to step up and make the second week of RG. Seriously, there's just no effin' excuse not to. You're a top 10 tennis player, WTF mate?!?

You're not honestly suggesting that what Andy does on clay in DC translates to what he does in a regular clay tournament, are you?

We're still trying to figure out how to trick Andy into thinking that Roland Garros is Davis Cup.

You haven't heard?
Andy Britney Spears Roddick + Anna Nicole Roddick + Lipstick Pig Mommy + Charity Money + Federer-Accommodation + Humiliating Interviews + Excuses =
Grass + Hardcourt Failure

Don't forget, he lost a bunch of hardcourt 1st and 2nd rounds after going on taco McDonald's, coffee, and junk Bulimic binges. Then again, he couldn't avoid the fake personality and unathletic genetics. The rich lifestyle makes it easy to be ignorant of self-destructive behavior he could avoid.

He kicked out the Goldfine-Davis Cup-Todd Martin loyalty excuses.
Then, he finally shut up and kicked out John Roddick excuses.
It's time to kick out the fake guilty feelings for Blanche.

To a lesser extent, he avoids Nadal. It's fun for bipolar and paranoid delusional, addictive Andy to act like a hapless idiot loser, following the media's "Nadal is mostly muscles, Federer is genius" bullshit prejudice.
Only because he has no dignity left (is he retired, and just here for charity money counting?). He shamelessly pretends he's Mr. Tennis Law and Order (mocking umpires, insulting himself, copying so-called super star athletes) without thinking twice about his fans' waning respect for him and tennis.
This is definitely not the 1970s Tennis Respect Time.
