Andy played LA in 2006, and again last year. I forget which year it was that he took a late WC. Last year he made the final, though. I doubt he'll take an LA WC this year, but he's done stranger things. And now that Ken and him broke off from SFX or whatever that agency is called now, his allegiance to DC might not be the same as it once was. But he's entered there, so I'm assuming he will play.

http://twitter.com/indytennis is tweeting Andy's conference call right now

Ambro from IndyStar asked how much Andy tried, or whether he was hurting during play, how many times did he try to practice?

AR: It got banged up a little bit. The biggest thing I'm concerned about is I had to give it sufficient rest after Wimbledon.

AR: Will try to be back for Washington. Was really looking forward to getting back to Indy. I was looking forward to being back there.

AR: I just don't feel like I was 100 percent ready

AR on Wimbly: Not going to lie, it was a hard night that night, but I've never been a part of something where I had so much outward support.

AR: I'll just get back to work, and hopefully my time will come.

AR: Open Series is great b/c it puts it all under one roof and makes it cohesive...It is one of the parts of the year I look forward to most.

AR on age: I feel better physically now than I did 2 or 3 yrs. ago...I have no reason to believe that the end is anywhere close for me.

AR: (Since Wimbly) I've gotten a ton of emails and text messages, everyone was really supportive, moreso than any time in my career.

AR: (on wimbly) I'm getting to balls better, in better shape. I've made improvements, but it's a matter of getting everything to click.

AR: "I hope to come back to Indy in the future. it's a place I really enjoy playing. Have a lot of good memories from that tournament."

AR: On Indy "I'm disappointed I can't be a part of that this year."

AR: That 's what we play for (the fans), and especially a place like Indy .. the fans that are there are so passionate about tennis.

AR: "It's always my intention to play as many of the US hardcourt events evey year, and I have no doubt I'll be back to indy some time."

AR: (On US Open) It's the only Slam left, so that is the goal for the rest of the year.

He is talking about rest, not a treatment, that is a good thing. But he is not confident in playing even Washington...

Anyway, I hope he recovers at 100% soon.

Better to play Washington (500 points) versus Los Angeles (250 points).

Default Re: Kicking Butt on the US Hardcourts!

indeed, especially since 4 are required. it'd only be good if he were gonna play both b/c LA should be a pretty easy title (like Indy), but that's probably not the best idea for him.

Thanks. Andy's classy way of handling that really puts into perspective how pathetic Roger's blubbering at AO was.


I read somewhere that James is not playing Indy because they wouldn't pay him the same appearance fee as Andy. This is disappointing to hear. I think James needs to re-evaluate himself; he needs to win a title more than he needs the extra dough.

Fans turn out for tennis tourney despite Roddick withdrawal
July 18, 2009

Indianapolis - Tennis fans in Indianapolis are reacting to star Andy Roddick's withdrawal from this week's tournament downtown.

Tournament promoters banked their image on Roddick's, but a hip injury forced him to back out. Roddick told reporters by phone he hasn't recouped enough from his championship loss at Wimbledon and that he regrets that he'll forego play in Indianapolis for the second year.

"It's definitely a disappointment," said fan Andrew Marchesani.

Qualifying for the tournament began Saturday and fans were already filling the seats to see the pros. the tournament director expects they'll be there throughout the week to cheer on other soon-to-be household names.

But no doubt, the big draw was Roddick. After his success at Wimbledon, ticket sales to the Indianapolis event increased 115 percent.

For some, it was what they looked forward to all week.

"Seeing Andy Roddick," said fan Judy Tyler. "I'm an Andy Roddick fan."

Tyler didn't know until Saturday that the star had withdrawn.

"Roddick is not going to be here?" she asked. "Wow."

"It's like any professional sport. Sometimes players get injured and they have to fall out," said an event official.

Tourney organizers insist the crowds will be just as wowed with other players and they've made sure to offer other family-friendly events.

"I guess it's still going to be good tennis," Marchesani said.

"I would have bought tickets whether Andy was coming or not, but he is so my favorite. I love him," Tyler said.

Organizers hope to confirm Roddick for next year's tournament. Championship play gets underway Sunday.

US Open Betting: The ressurgence of Roddick
18 July 2009
by Simon Mundie


Federer was the man to walk away with the 2009 Wimbledon title but Simon Mundie believes Andy Roddick was the real star of the tournament. Here's the lowdown on the big-serving, swimsuit model marrying, all-round good guy who looks like he's back to his best.
"He’s been criticised for appearing one-dimensional, with poor volleys, sluggish movement and a toothless baseline game; but over the course of two weeks he reignited the belief that he may not end his career as a ‘One-Slam wonder’"
While it was Roger Federer who stood victorious after a sun blessed two weeks at Wimbledon, thus confirming himself as the most successful Grand Slam Champion of all time, the real star of the fortnight was Andy Roddick.

The popular Nebraskan was involved in three consecutive titanic tussles from the quarter finals onwards, and was but a whisker away from adding the men's singles crown to his lone Major trophy success to date, with one missed backhand volley in the second set tiebreak of the final (to take the second set) likely to haunt him for a long time yet. Had he converted that volley, it would have been a long way back for Federer, but it was not to be.

Roddick's sole major win at the US Open in 2003 was widely expected to be the first of many, but the American has failed to capitalise on that success, with any further Grand Slam successes looking less and less likely as the years have gone by. He's been criticised for appearing one-dimensional, with poor volleys, sluggish movement and a toothless baseline game; but over the course of two weeks he reignited the belief that he may not end his career as a 'One-Slam wonder'.

The clues that Roddick could have a good Wimbledon campaign were there as far back as the end of 2008, when he hired Larry Stefanki as his new coach. Stefanki had proven pedigree, taking Marcelo Rios and Yevgeny Kafelnikov to the number one ranking under his tutelage, as well as having a positive impact on the games of players like Fernando Gonzalez and Tim Henman, amongst others. To Roddick's credit, he said he was willing to do whatever Stefanki suggested to get him back competing with the best in the game, and he quickly realised that his and Stefanki's vision were not immediately one and the same.

One of the first conversations between the pair started with Stefanki asking what Roddick weighed, as he was sure his protégé needed to shed some weight to improve his mobility round the court. Roddick had beefed up since being world number one in 2003, partly because he believed the game was first and foremost about power.

Stefanki did not share that view, saying it was more about transitioning from defence to offence, and looking to finish the points in the forecourt. To be successful at that, Roddick had to slim down and come off what Stefanki referred to as the "Boris Becker diet", which was the reason behind the German's lack of mobility towards the end of his career.

True to his word, Roddick adopted Stefanki's way of thinking and got his weight down, and was repaid when the results quickly followed. At the start of 2009 Roddick reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open, taking out defending champion Novak Djokovic en route. He was solid throughout the American hardcourt season, and posted a career-best result at The French Open in reaching the fourth round. Just prior to Wimbledon, he had to pull out of his semi-final match at Queen's club with James Blake after twisting his ankle, which could have been a blessing in disguise in hindsight as it kept the magnifying glass of expectation off him.

Roddick's resurgence is certainly great for the game. He is one of the most popular players on tour, and is probably the world's best when it comes to providing journalists with amusing and insightful quotes in post match press conferences.

In America, he is one of their most celebrated athletes, being featured in publications such as Rolling Stone and Vogue, as well as being voted 'sexiest athlete' in People Magazine in 2003. His relationship history has kept him firmly in the gossip pages too, starting when he dated the actress and singer Mandy Moore and continuing to the present day with his recent marriage to Brooklyn Decker. Incidentally, he met his future wife after spotting her in the Sports Illustrated swimwear issue and asked his agent to arrange a date. The rest, as they say, is history!

The question now is how will Roddick recover from such a heartbreaking loss in the Wimbledon final? He realises that may well be the best opportunity he will ever have to be crowned men's singles champion at SW19, and that is a bitter pill to swallow. History suggests Roddick will bounce back; he prides himself on his ability to pick himself up after setbacks, and he has a chance to re-establish himself with the very best on tour. Ahead of him lies the American summer hardcourt season that leads up to the US Open, where Roddick can currently be backed at 17.0 to win a second title. It won't be easy, but he is definitely a contender once more, and there wouldn't be a more popular Champion than the nearly man of SW19.

He tried to practice last week but would wake up in pain? This sounds worse than what we originally thought.

Let's hope things are not THAT serious, because if they are, it's not a good thing. Playing in MS event coming back from injury is not good for his chances. He needs to be warm and in-form, to play big there.

Not that I think you're wrong (because I do think you're right) but remember back in 2006 when he was out for a few weeks, pulled out of Toronto/Montreal, and almost lost in the first round of Cincy?

Of course I remember. But that happens one time. Yes, he can win even a title coming back, but for me it is precedent, it won't think every time. Maybe I'm wrong. Just think that if he is in-form, with a few matches under his belt, he will do better.
