Celebrity NFL Football Pool
By Staff
2005-01-06
As recently reported on ESPN, tennis player, James Blake, finished seven points ahead of Wilma McNabb to capture the Page 3 crown and even earned bragging rights over ESPN’s NFL analysts.

Blake may have found himself a career after tennis. "It feels great to win the pool," said Blake. "Being off the tour for so long with injuries and illness, I could take plenty of time to check ESPN.com for all the pertinent information. So I feel like I may have had an unfair advantage. Although that doesn't excuse all the analysts for losing to me since it is their job.

"I'm also proud that I absolutely killed Andy Roddick, and will be sure to remind him of that consistently on tour. Everyone else did great and it was a fun excuse to care about every game in the NFL."

To that, Andy said, “Yeah, Yeah! The way I was coming back Blake was lucky there weren’t thirty weeks in the NFL season!”

Final standings:

1. James Blake 186
2. Wilma McNabb 179
3. Heather Mitts 173
4. Jermaine Dye 169
4. Luke Walton 169
6. Drew Lachey 168
7. Bow Wow 166
8. Steve Harris 158
9. Nick Lachey 156
10. Holly Robinson Peete 155
10. Pat McGee 155
12. Andy Roddick 153

On behalf of the winner, ESPN will make a charitable contribution to Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Springfield, Mass. As a kid, Blake spent time there as a patient, when he suffered from severe scoliosis. If it wasn't for Shriner's, Blake says he would never be playing professional tennis. And since the Andy Roddick Foundation is dedicated to “helping children today for tomorrow” Andy could not be happier. In Andy’s words, “How good can it be when you can lose and still win?”

Fumigator showed me this yesterday then I found it on the TennisOne site - by Joel Drucker
--------------

What can we expect from Andy Roddick's new coach
Having spent an arduous seven years in the Todd Martin camp drawing on every possible resource, expect Dean Goldfine to work very hard with Roddick on and off the court. But while Roddick's ex-coach, Brad Gilbert, is rarely known for crediting or bringing other experts into his classroom, and is at heart a specialist in tennis tactics, Dean Goldfine is far more inclusive. It wouldn't surprise me to learn of Goldine chatting occasionally with the likes of longstanding guru Jose Higueras and bringing those ideas to Roddick.

As for Roddick, do note that this guy has finished the last two years ranked one and two in the world. Let's see if he's able to add more wrinkles to his game such as intermittent net play and continue working out the kinks in his backhand.

Damn, I missed seeing Brad Pitt and Andy Roddick in the same place? I've got to start watching Heat matches more often.

Too funny he came in dead last in the NFL picks thingy.

Presumably, Andy and Pitt were at the football game.

Why's he so desperate to watch lame football and basketball games?
It's urgent for him to get ready for the next day's tennis practice...

James Blake laughed at his ignorance.
IMO, Andy believes that he's a joke, and most people think that he won't have a great tennis future either.

Does he want to humiliate himself at Kooyong & Australian Open?
I don't want to waste my time watching him if he won't do what it takes to win every title, with no fear.
I don't want to see him self-destruct again in 4-hour marathons.
Many Andy fans just don't care if he loses early, but I hate watching him
waste chance after chance and then giving up. I was very angry when he injured himself by diving on the ground/twisting his ankle.

He should know that he's the 1 who's responsible for fitness and preparation.
So, it's ridiculous for him to pretend that his unforced errors happen for no reason.

Argh.... everyone else is either already in Australia and practicing or playing various tournaments. Only Andy is still at home it seems. Oh well

Andy Off Down Under
By Lucy Flory
2005-01-08
G’day andyroddick.com! Andy will soon be heading to the Land of Oz in the sizzling heat of the Australian summer, destination Melbourne, to begin preparations for the first Grand Slam of the year: The Australian Open.

Andy’s first event of 2005, will be the Kooyong Classic, at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club from January 12-15. Joining Andy there will be a real ripper of a field comprising of Federer, Henman, Agassi, Nalbandian, Gaudio, Massu and Srichaphan. "This is probably our best field ever" said Tournament Director, Colin Stubs. "I will be delighted and privileged to welcome the above eight players to Kooyong.”

With play starting next Wednesday, there will be four matches on the opening day, three on Thursday and Friday, and then the two finals will be played on Saturday. In recent years the format has been that the players move left or right in the draw depending on whether they win or lose their opening matches.

This is an alternative approach in terms of preparation for the Australian Open. Instead of playing in one of the ATP tournaments preceding the Australian Open, Andy has decided to train hard in Texas and Florida before flying to Australia. With the round robin format of the Kooyong Classic, Andy will be guaranteed some hard fought matches to fine tune his game and competitive edge.

This will be Andy’s first tournament with his new coach, Dean Goldfine, and both player and coach expect to do well in Kooyong and enter the Australian Open razor sharp.

He waits til the last day to fly overseas again. :retard:
Be that way and lose 6-4 6-0 again, Andy!!!!
I'll smack him if he's like this in the clay & indoor events again!!!!
Tennis is about being serious ALL YEAR, NOT about being complacent on HARDCOURTS!

He won't even go to friends' tourneys to work hard with Dent, Andre, Fish, etc.
If he cares so much about Davis Cup, World Team Cup, etc., he should improve his game as well as his DC teammates'.

Does he want to be stuck between #2-10 all the time?? Players love to bring him down, but he's SO DAMN NICE to them. Blast them off the court, ANDY!!!
Goldfine, WHIP HIM!!!!

Yea, this is something, IMO, that Andy really needs to think about. Marat, Tim, Andre, and more - they're all already in Melbourne. Look at Roger, he was in Doha several days before the tourney.. Andre went to Australia to acclimatise over a week before Kooyong... There's a reason these people do well - they are the best prepared for an event that they can possibly be. Andy needs to be in Australia, NOW. I think it was a good decision to sit out the ATP tournaments and go for Kooyong instead, I give that a but still, be prepared for it, be as prepared as humanly possible. You and Dean can hit in Australia too. But gahhhhh.

I hated people who jeered at him in Spain and the nonfans yelled all the time when he lost in Thailand & Houston.
....Ljubicic and Anti-fans enjoy that stupidity, don't they????
I'm sure Davis Cup vs. Croatia will be joyful.
HE HAS TO WIN A LOT. BE SELFISH, ANDY!!
Last year, Andy DIDN'T TRY HIS BEST & he knows this. He better stop that!!!
3-MATCH LOSING STREAK. Hello Andy?
He played smartly in 2003, but he was encouraged to SERVE 155 mph!!!!
When you made him practice dropshots on clay, he ignored you.
If he doesn't care, he should NOT be shocked when he loses a lot.

He loves to make tennis popular (exhibitions, TV shows, ads),
but does it hurt him that he WON NO TOURNEY in 5 months
& that he could BARELY BREATHE in matches? No Fitness = No Wins
I knew he'd injure himself last year (Toronto, Thailand, Memphis, Spain).
