You're welcome He looks like he needs a hug though

and yes, it does make him sound quite special. But consider the writer, Karen Crouse loves Andy lol. It seems a little over-dramatized but still seems like Andy did act courageously and did stay calm and did really help a lot of people out. That definitely deserves a couple of I'm still looking forward to reading what he says on AR.com. I wish they would've put it up right away instead of that tease and then nothing all day.

Yeah he needed a hug, but he wasn't as bad as I thought he would have been. I just thank God he was calm this morning so he wasn't as affected by it. Can you imagine if he was frantic this morning how shoken up he would have been recounting what went on

lol yeah... but from what we've seen before (like when he served out the USO, etc) the really really big moments seem to make him really calm, like almost able to remove himself from the situation. He even did it a little bit in the SF against David. I guess I'm sort of the same way. One day in high school I came home and my dad had had a seizure from a medication and usually I freak out (as if you guys didn't already know that I freak out easily lol) but then I was very calm, calling 911 then my mom at work and stuff and I didn't even realize how calm I'd been til after. It's very weird. Surreal. You just sort of go through the motions and then later you are thankful that someone taught you all the right things to do.

Thanks for that article, star, that was great, but they made it sound like the WTC Towers were crashing down again ("bodies were landing like birds on Roddick's terrace"...? c'mon! )

And I just saw the video of Andy being interviewed on ESPN News. Nice clip. His voice sounded raspy, maybe from the smoke.

ESPN didn't bother to report on Marat losing all his rackets in the fire.

I know it's a bit over-dramtised, but it's great to see Andy keep cool and help others while still have a sense of humor. People are wondering what he will do if Federer was on that balcony. Or Malisse, Robredo? I know it's wicked, but ...
Oh, Andy, we just love you so much more.

In the LA Times article it says his rackets melted in the fire... but, we saw him carrying out his stuff? And he was practicing that day?

Talk about overdramatization.

It sounds as if Andy was calm and collected. Not true heroism in my estimation, but he sounds mature and thoughtful and kind.

But was he yaking on his cell phone the ENTIRE time?????
