Andy is mental and it's effecting me.

when as an individual you can feel better/worse all day because of something someone else did or did not do...well...then you've got it bad.

Im effected
and i can't help it.


& at this rate burnout is eminent for everyone.
...does he know the power he yields, really?

Default Re: *tell andy roddick the truth.

anyone who sees andy should just walk up to him and smack him upside the head, don't say anything, just smack.

and when he asks why you did it... just tell him that you were trying to smack some sense into him... (or say something less cliched. the words are really just up to you)....

maybe then he'll get it.

Default Re: This joke hurts. (*tell Andy Roddick the truth)

I think his people are telling him the true. Everyone can see what he is doing wrong and have an opinion on what he has to do to improve. Just by listening to John Mac commentating yesterday you could see he thinks Andy has to come to the net (althought it was not working at all) and hit the forehand using the legs (whatever he meant I dont' know). John Roddick thinks he has go back to his old ways and somebody else thinks he as to practice his backhand and so on.

I think he is listening too much. He should check his performance for himself - watch his old and recent matches and cry. He should also watch other players tapes as I believe he doesn't do this very often.

Default Re: This joke hurts. (*tell Andy Roddick the truth)

What kills me is that Andy lost in this last match, primary because he just didn't put away the shots he got from the middle of the court. The shots he's suppose to be waiting for! The "Thank-you very much" shots. He wasn't hitting the short balls with any kind of authority or pace, was putting way too much spin on shots he was going deep with, and just wasn't hitting any good topspin angles.

Credit to Murray, he kept giving Andy short angled shots that he wasn't comfortable playing (especially on his backhand side) and that Andy wouldn't/couldn't put away, and trapping Andy in the middle of the court, where he felt like he had to play volleys. He should have started moving back after hitting the short shots, like he said in the press confrence.

Andy lost on his game. It hurts.

Andy's being told the truth. I'm convinced of it.

While I'm with you on this, there's a difference between simply recognising the truth and internalising it. I'm sure we've all been in situations where we were in the wrong (and we knew it), but still tried to find some justification or excuse.

It's only with a little more time/maturity/hindsight that you really realise just how wrong you were and that there wasn't anything to justify it.

I think Andy may have been in the first stage for a while (since last years USO), hopefully this loss will be the catalyst that really gets him to think about things and seriously be able to turn them around.

Like someone said, Andy still has a few winning streaks in him yet - he's only 23 so he has time to work this through. He has time to get some perspective and figure out what he's really willing to change/capable of and what he isn't.

Well, that was my point, I guess. he's being told the truth but it's either not sinking in or he's not doing the right things to rectify it, etc. But I'm convinced on an intellectual level, he is being told by John and others. They're just simply not that dumb, none of them.

This has been going on way longer than last year's USO. USO 2004 maybe!!!! It's just really really reared its head this year. He still won lots of small titles and went deep in some slams so people didn't notice the really awful losses he had, but us observant fans did and we've been talking about this since the 2004 USO and shortly thereafter.

It's nice that he's hopeful and stuff but this "I'm just gonna keep working hard hoping something good will happen" attitude is a little passive I think. Bringing his brother back really was a good thing I think, but it hasn't really come to fruition yet, and it's been several months. I think Jimmy is a bold and gutsy step, but it might be what he needs.

Ultimately, I think he knows what's wrong, and doesn't how to fix it.

Andy is trying to use his brains - something he should have never tried.

quite true. thinking too much is probably his biggest problem. He's not playing the point, one point at a time. Even he himself said that he's playing his best when he's just out there playing and reacting and playing on instinct. it's when he thinks about what to do that he gets that tentative tendency back. Playing soooo fast that night against Mayer probably helped. he just wasn't giving himself any time to think whatsoever.
