Default Re: Andy Roddick News Thread

I don’t really agree with this article. The only thing that is true is about coaches. Yes, Andy needed changes to keep himself going through his career.

But that is the end of it. Well, yes, Wimbledon final loss really hurt Andy, but the author forgets how well Andy played in throughout the first part of 2010 – particularly IW/Miami swing. And he even beat Djokovic in Canada 2009, fresh after THAT match. Also, Gerald Schoenewolf gives statistically incorrect information. Andy did not lost to Acasuso in first round of Wimbledon. Andy made the final, losing (again) to GOAT. So, basically the author points out two French Open loses, trying to make a point about Andy’s career, which is naive and stupid. So, mr. Schoenewolf better do his researches before making statements.

Andy’s career, game, ranking and so on is going down, because it was time for them to go down. He played tons of matches, year after year, hit millions of serves. His body can’t hold up as it used to, which is perfectly normal. And we can’t expect him to hit 145 mph serves for a period of 15 years or more. I also want it, but it cannot be.

Andy had a great career and if some points had gone his way, he may have been 3-4-time Grand Slam champion or even more. And would have won couple more Masters titles. Andy made mistakes, but blaming him for lack of self believe, really!? So, this guy better stick to psychology, not sports.

And sorry for my English, it is not that good when I have to express myself. I hope you will understand me and get my point.

He will be back in the top 10. Not a chance of retirement.

Default Wimbledon seeding at risk for Roddick

Quote:
Even though he is 7-10 on the year and lost in the first round of Roland Garros to Nicolas Mahut, Andy Roddick says he will not attempt to play the Nottingham Challenger on grass next week. The former No. 1 returned to the tour last week in Germany after taking almost two months off to rehab various injuries. He's currently ranked No. 33 and is in danger of being unseeded at Wimbledon, where he's reached three finals. Roddick is defending semifinal-round points at Queen's Club, which he will play. He is also planning on competing at Wimbledon and the Olympics.

Roddick said he never really considered pulling out of Roland Garros.

"Coming into this, I didn't have much to kind of prop myself up on," said Roddick, who lost three clay-court matches in Dusseldorf last week. "But I played a guy who it's not his favorite surface either, so there was a chance. You just don't know. So if everyone pulled out of every tournament when they weren't feeling great or confident, we wouldn't have a lot of fields that were much to write home about. We'd have about four people in most draws ... There are a lot of guys who know how to play on clay, and it's just second nature to them. I feel that way on grass, so hopefully I can turn it around there."

Default Re: Andy Roddick News Thread

LONDON, ENGLAND

E. ROGER‑VASSELIN/A. Roddick
6‑4, 4‑6, 7‑5



THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. What are your thoughts on that?

ANDY RODDICK: It wasn't that bad. I mean, I served 80% and had 22 aces. You know, the guy won I think five points on my serve in the first set and four of them came in succession and he came in on two first serves.
You know, it was better than what I have been doing. You know, I thought I had a look there in the third set, and honestly I felt like I was going to take that thing once I turned it.
Didn't work out that way.

Q. Would more matches help?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, but in order to get to two matches you've got to get past one. Unfortunately that's the way it's gotta go.
But I've come in here plenty of times short on matches and I've played three‑setters first round plenty of times, matches exactly like that. You know, just didn't go my way today.

Q. Do you think it's like the hamstring and it's hard for you to get going this year?

ANDY RODDICK: No, I don't know. That certainly didn't help. You know, today I didn't feel like it was ‑‑I've certainly played my fair share of very average tennis. I don't think today was ‑‑the result was not what I was looking for. The guy played great.
I didn't hit the ball too badly. I've certainly played a lot worse this year so far. But, yeah, you know, like it was alluded to, you know, both ways are contagious. You know, you win, you can hit the ball terribly and somehow you get through. It works against you until you find your groove. Certainly I'm looking right now.

Q. Fitness‑wise where are you? 80% fit?

ANDY RODDICK: I don't know. I'm fit enough to play.

Q. Is that the main thing you'll work on now before Wimbledon, or to find more rhythm on the grass?

ANDY RODDICK: I mean, there's a lot of things to work on.

Q. Are you going to play somewhere next week?

ANDY RODDICK: I don't know yet.

Q. You had an interview this week in which you discussed retirement. What made you decide to talk about...

ANDY RODDICK: I didn't really ‑‑I didn't really say anything. I mean, I'm not at the point where I'm going to deal in absolutes with my career. I'm not going to sit here and say, I'm going to play three more years. I'm not going to sit here and say ‑‑so take that as what you want.
You know, at this point anything is a possibility. It's something I said. You know, I don't think what was said and the way it has been interpreted is completely on the same page.
You know, I don't have certainty two, three years down the road. I'm not going to talk about that. I don't think I'm going to set the precedent on giving‑up dates on a day‑to‑day basis, either.

Q. Some players like Ljubicic said in advance it will be at a certain tournament. Do you think when the time comes, whether it's in five years or whatever, that's how you'll do it?

ANDY RODDICK: How would I know that? I have never done it before. I don't know. I don't know.

Q. Do you find yourself now thinking more of what will be, when it happens, what you'll do?

ANDY RODDICK: As far as afterwards?

Q. Yeah.

ANDY RODDICK: No, I don't really worry about it. Maybe that's another thing why it got taken away. I don't worry about after tennis, really.
I have great friends at home. My social life isn't out here. You know, it's more important to me probably at home.
You know, I have a lot of different interests, so I don't fear kind of the life aspect of tennis. I enjoy playing tennis. I'm probably different than, you know, most of the guys out here.
I enjoy the work still. I enjoy being up at the track early and hitting with the guys and, you know, putting in the hours. I don't know that I enjoy the scene of tennis as much, and I think that's backwards from a lot of people.
So I have thought about it, and I don't really worry about it.

Q. You have had so much success here, and you've gone out first match this year. Would that encourage you to come back next year, to keep playing?

ANDY RODDICK: Oh, I don't play one match for a year. I don't think that's something I'll ever do.

Q. Are you going to still play the doubles?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah. Yeah.

Andy Roddick

EASTBOURNE, ENGLAND

A. RODDICK/S. Querrey
5‑2 (Ret.)



THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. It's difficult to tell from that match, but is that a bit of a confidence booster for you?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I mean, listen, I didn't know he was ‑‑I didn't know he was dealing with something out there. You know, regardless of what he had going on, I hit the ball really well.
Last couple of days it's been really good in practice. I don't know why or how or what the, you know, what the process has been, but it's felt pretty good.
So, you know, we'll take it.

Q. Your first experience of this rather sedate surroundings of Eastbourne. What do you make of it?

ANDY RODDICK: No, it's been great. It's easy. You know, you walk home at the end of the day. It's nice. It's mellow. It's a good place to kind of‑‑ you know, there's always available practice courts. There is a long line of them. It's been pleasant so far.

Q. Do you need to sort of take a mellow attitude towards how you are and how you're going to be over the next few days, do you think?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I think so. I mean, you're here just trying to work. You know, I felt like this was the best place to do it. You know, you can't really replicate match situations in practice, so it's something I needed. You know, they afforded me the opportunity to play here, and, you know, I'm thankful for it.

Q. Looking towards Wimbledon, what is it going to take for someone other than Djokovic, Federer, Nadal to win it?

ANDY RODDICK: Good playing. I mean, I'm not really sure how to go about that. Obviously they've played great and they've, you know, been pretty selfish about Grand Slam titles for a little bit.
So it's going to take some extraordinary tennis and consistently over the course of a couple weeks. You know, with the exception of Rafa it's going to take digging out of holes. And you saw that with Roger and Novak during Paris. That comes from confidence. Even being a couple of sets down, they were able to kind of dig in and beat some pretty good players in their own right. You know, there's something to be said for that.

Q. State of the courts? Are they good?

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, they felt good.

Q. They have had a reputation in the past to be a wee bit uneven and a little bit...

ANDY RODDICK: Yeah, I heard that coming in, but honestly they have been‑‑ yeah, pleasantly surprised, yeah.

The public wrote off Andy but now he's back with two title wins. That should shut up the naysayers for a little while longer.
