I don't know, it's strange. But if he can't serve and hit forehands, I don't see how he can do very well at this event. Really bizarre. But if he's not being honest about what it is, there's no way for us to really know I guess.

I hope your injury heals asap though!
Thanks, I just know that when people say shoulder, most immediately think of the front of the shoulder. It looks to me like Roddicks is in the back of his shoulder, and does have some nerves involved. According to my ortho, that's what puts pressure on the trap, which in turn tightens up the neck. That's when I noticed the other day that A-Rod had similar limitations in movement that I do. Hopefully his will heal quickly, he's a lot younger than me. Thanks for your kind words..

Roddick goofing off - I'm not sure what he was trying to do, but he did it like 5 times during the practice and was really amused with himself for trying.
Roddick practices running down dropshots
Roddick Practicing - you can see the messed up FHs here
Roddick 2-minute drill 1 - hadn't seen this one before - he was running around slicing while John fed him balls, and I guess the goal was to keep the ball in play for 2 min while they were timed on a stopwatch

Holy Fucking Shit...
Awesome pics Deb!

As usual some of the best candid pics around, Thanks for sharing.

Deb- did you see any of Fernando's interactions with fans? I have heard several accounts from different tournaments about how Verdasco is one of the nicest guys on tour.
Well for a skinny guy, JMDP hits the bejeesus out of the ball he looked very gangly and skinny and tall in person, more so than i had remembered before. But man, he was crushing it.

As for Verdasco, I've seen him practice before at IW and honestly, never really seen much interaction with fans (I left his first practice before it was over, some guys were waiting for him to sign their tennis stuff, but I don't know what happened).... but in general he seems always to be in a pretty good mood - intense during practices, but smiling and stuff like that, so I can't say for sure based on what I myself have witnessed in terms of actual fan interaction, but he definitely seems like a good-natured guy

Well, his shoulder problem that took him out of RG and should've taken him out of Wimbledon was an inflamed rotator cuff. He says that's healed. This one, he said, was on the left side of his neck near the spine but on the left side. I have no idea beyond what he says in press conferences. Maybe your ortho is better than Andy's doctors and they haven't discovered the real problem

Agree here. When I ran into him at IW, he finished practiced already and about to leave. I stopped and asked him to take a picture for Sjoukje He's patiently waited for me to get my picture perfect

Good job, Deb. Although, I'm surprised that you haven't been bitched out yet for placing this in GM rather than the tournament thread.

There are other report/pics/video threads by posters in GM. And if result threads of a tournament are in GM, what's wrong with report threads?

No, he was playing qualifying at the time and I was too lazy to take the hike up to those courts unfortunately. If I go back, I will look for him of course b/c he's one of my favorites

They're all cordial to each other and shake hands and say hi when they're coming and going.... except for one poor lonely ignored soul. Poor Vinny Ice (today all decked out in his purple blinged hat with his fro logo ) has no friends - not even his compatriot Isner says hello. Later I heard this guy telling someone on the phone that Spadea's hitting partner didn't show up so he was throwing up balls for himself and hitting shots off them
Poor Vinnay Ice. He ain't got no friends, no style, no game, no nothing. He is the ultimate loveable loser, I guess. I wonder if he realizes that people are laughing at him when they ask for a photo.

Andy. It's unreal how popular this frat boy jerk is. I don't get it.

Thanks for the report and photos.

My own experience with Verdasco at DC can back this up: he is absolutely one of the nicest, most approachable guys on tour. I was very surprised how friendly and accessible he was. It's hard not to be charmed by him.
