Doubt it. Now that Decker age 24 is the main breadwinner and a model, it would damage her career and the household budget to be preggers. He should stay on the tour if that was the plan.

Can't tell you how good it is to stay up at like 12 am, 1 am for these marathon matches.

lucky bugger, Melbourne is lovely, I went to the AO in 2005.

I keep thinking everyone in Australia is 12 hours behind UK, but thats NZ (I used to live there) so actually it is only 12-1ish there atm, not 4:20 which I thought!

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

It's fucking hot as when AO starts though . But it's all part of the vibe. Same here man, I had ground pass. I also stayed up watching Fed and Safin 05 as well (TV at home). Only had like 5 hours sleep before the first day of school though

Nice to know I frankly don't give a shit about your time orientation problems

If Roddick not fire coach in 2004, not get stupid Jimmy connors
He won't be that bad after 04

jimmy connors knows nothing about coaching

According to Serena, he's known for a year now this was his last open, in her interview last night. Doesnt seem in any way related to babies or money issues. If he's invested well (which i expect he has), money inst really in the picture on the decision. The model wife's income is just a small fraction of what he's gotten in endorsements. It's not even a factor.

And the same to you

Shit yeah, I declare it the best match ever that I've watched. Lemme guess? Nadal? I actually watched him with my ground pass, he played on like some crap court, like court 6 or some shit. I think he played Benneteau in like second round or something. I thought back then, he was just some random journeyman, but I didn't know he would turn out to be the beast he is up to this day

saw him round 2 vs. a mug called youhzny i think, he won, just, but lost to Hewitt in the end in r4 or something?

Henman losing to Davy was also a muggy joke, Henman was shit in 2005

I don't want him to go

I cried watching his presser

I tried so so hard to see him at tournaments,, and it was my 7th tournament (olympics) that i finally got to see him play, not only that, I met him too. So glad I made it just in time.

Rumours going round that Brooklyn might be pregnant. I wish him all the best in the future and fingers crossed he'll do some commentary, punditry in the future. HE HAS THE TALENT. He is the KING of pressers and always will be.

God the game will miss him.

He actually has a radio show, and i heard that he has another offer to do another one. Then he has his foundation. He will actually make a good commentator i think, based on what he has done before with commentating.

Ah, Benny must have been first round. That's right he beat Youzhny in 5. Fuck off Hewitt, he lucked out and edged through every fucking match that fortnight . Still can't believe he lucked out those 2 TB's against Roddick in that SF

Davydenko was getting good back then, and Henman was always shit, so it wasn't surprising I guess

I think what everyone is essentially saying is Rod has great personality that's engaging. Best player by no means, but he made things interlining to his credit. He'll be great in commentary. I have no doubt we will be hearing from him in the future.
