The only bad thing today was probably the couple of worrying slips he had here and there, otherwise it was really a practice session.
He really looks so very comfortable and natural on grass(not necessarily in terms on movement though).
Come on Andy!

Yeah those slips are typical Andy on grass. Other than that great start.

Roddick sweats it out in front of eager audience

Wed, Jun 9, 2010

Andy Roddick got a taste of his increased popularity in Britain when hundreds of fans squeezed on to a narrow pathway just to watch him practise at Queen's Club on Tuesday.

The American, who was given a long standing ovation after losing an epic five-set final to Roger Federer at Wimbledon last July, arrived in London feeling jaded after yet another woeful performance in the French Open, where he went out in the third round.

However, as Roddick stepped on to the slick grass of Queen's by clambering over the side hoardings, he was greeted by a female cry of: "We love you Andy, this will be your year".

Roddick acknowledged the fan by comically raising one eyebrow before getting down to business with his hitting partner, as the throng of spectators jostled for space on the pathway beside the practice court.

Residents of the houses surrounding the leafy tennis club made the most of their vantage points by leaning out of their first- and second-floor windows to catch a glimpse of the Wimbledon runner-up.

"A lot maybe changed after Wimbledon last year. Why? I don't know," Roddick told reporters, referring to the final where he was finally subdued 16-14 in the fifth set by Federer.

"I feel like I've worked hard at what I do for a long time. For some reason it hit home during that tournament for a lot of people last year. I certainly think the sentiment is maybe a little bit different now."

Despite the blustery wind swirling around the court, Roddick's black T-shirt was soon drenched in sweat as he fired down his thunderbolt serves before giving his hitting partner the run-around with ferocious groundstrokes.

After 30 minutes, the four-times Queen's champion signalled to his team that he had had enough and packed away his rackets in preparation for his opening match against Russian Igor Kunitsyn later on Tuesday.

Five hours later, Roddick's work on Centre Court lasted little longer as he blew away Kunitsyn 6-2 6-1 and earned a standing ovation from the near 7,000-strong crowd.

I feel more than ashamed. I think wit this he actually ruined his chances at Wimbledon. He played bad, but should have found a way through. If he can't get through Sela, how he would expect to get through Roger or Rafa?! OK, maybe we should accept the fact that he will not win another Slam... It is so sad.

Having not seen it, it sounds like this was a bad mental day for andy, something was bothering him and he couldn't get past it. It happens, just not usually to him on grass. I think the biggest problem for him at Wimbledon is that he has played so little since Miami that he doesn't have the match-tough instincts you need in an important match at the tight moments. So I agree, I don't see how he could possibly win any of those huge matches at Wimbledon. That said, and I don't even know why I bother anymore, I would be very surprised if he laid an egg there like he laid today. He is healthy (unlike 2008) and doesn't seem like he's actually having a mental crisis (like 2006). So, we will see. But frankly I think that at this point, any result at Wimbledon besides winning it has got to be a huge disappointment for him.

IMO he should request a WC into London for next week, he obviously needs more match practice.

You mean Eastbourne? I agree, but I doubt he'll do it.

It doesn't look like the WCs have been handed out yet so we will see. I would still be very surprised though, he always likes going to Aorangi (the practice courts) and getting into his London routine.

"Credit to him. I think he had a very specific game plan, and I thought he executed it very well and never dug himself a hole on any service games, never had any sloppy errors.

"I think I could have done some things differently, but I thought he played a pretty perfect match. I've played worse at this tournament before and gotten through and won it before. I feel fine about the way I'm hitting the ball and constructing points.

And this is his comments...I'm speechless. So, he won't play Eastbourne, he "feels fine"... Watch out how is out before QF in Wimbledon.
