Roddick accepts spot in Delray qualifying tourney

In a stunning development, Andy Roddick, the No. 3-ranked player in the world, has accepted a spot in this weekend's qualifying tournament in an attempt to earn one of four spots available for the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

The 32-player draw was out of wild cards, so Roddick, who grew up in nearby Boca Raton, will be forced to earn his way in. Roddick was knocked out of the Australian Open in the fourth round 6-4, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 by surprising finalist Marcos Baghdatis, the 20-year old from Cyprus.

Roddick has played in the Delray Beach tournament four times with one final appearance in 2002, an upset loss to Italy's Davide Sanguinetti.

Roddick was unable to receive a wild card because Andre Agassi, Mardy Fish and Sargis Sargsian had already been granted direct entry into the draw. Agassi, an eight-time Grand Slam champion, was forced to sit out the Australian Open with an ankle injury.

Didn't Ferrero last year have to play qualifying in Hamburg or some other AMS clay court event?

So Andy wouldn't be the first to stoop to this. :o

I'm in class and TRYING MY HARDEST not to laugh out loud. I just don't understand why he'd want to play these extra matches. I think there are 3 rounds of qualifying in 2 days. I mean. DEATH WHY!!!! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!! He couldn't want matches this badly that he'd be willing to do this. LMFAO!! He barely ever had to qualify for tourneys when he was 17/18!!!!! In fact, he may never have, since he was always given WCs til his ranking was high enough.

I'm just in stunned and amused disbelief.


But Devotee, Ferrero played qualies b/c his ranking had dropped too low. Not because he didn't enter at first and couldn't get a WC b/c they'd been promised to other people :lol: :rolls: Ferrero wasn't 3 in the world at the time! :haha:

Re: the WTF ARE YOU DOING PLAYING THIS TOURNEY?!?!!??!!?!?! Delray thread
 
I just realized.... what happens to the draw!! It's supposed to be made Saturday, before qualies end. Andy would be #1 seed in the tourney were he in the normal way but this way they can't do that... I wonder what happens!?

This is more evidence that he needs a sports psychologist. Instead of taking time to play in this tournament, he should be interviewing for a personal sports psychologist. I'm not kidding at all.
