This is on the site of the exhibition Andy's supposed to play with Mardy next week...

"You may have read in the Houston Chronicle this past Saturday that Andy Roddick withdrew from his 2nd round match at the NASDAQ 100 tournament in Miami. He was experiencing pain in his wrist during the match. We have spoken with his agent and have been informed that it is not serious and he is intending on playing the exhibition match on Thursday evening of our tournament."

So that means he's supposed to be ok to play a full exhibition match less than a week from now...

Question is . . . will Andy give this match his all?
What's his motivation for playing? Surely he doesn't need the money that bad. Just playing this one match with Mardy isn't going to help him play better on European clay. Andy could be practicing instead.

Well, playing Mardy on clay isn't great practice under any circumstances - Mardy cannot move on clay at all. But it's better than nothing. He's not playing a clay tournament til April 18, this is a full 11 days before that tournament begins - and I'd say he probably won't just show up on the 7th without stepping foot on clay before then - so it means he's practicing and hitting on clay for probably about 2 weeks before a tournament, before the season begins. That can only be a good thing - esp. compared to last year when he went to Houston immediately from Delray Beach which was immediately after Miami - this year he should be much better-rested and hopefully less mentally exhausted, too.

If he's on the court - even in a meaningless exho against Mardy, at least he's out on the court on a red clay court, instead of on his couch or boat or in a bar

Yea, but it's Robredo, and... he was only mildly drunk Plus it was a dead rubber - it's a lot easier to swing freely in those situations Trust me, Mardy is not good on clay. Maybe this year he'll do better b/c he's fitter and stuff, but not only that - his gamestyle isn't really all that well-suited for clay and movement is his biggest weakness in his game, so that will be horribly exploited on the dirt.

from the Houston Chronicle....
--------------------
Tournament director and River Oaks head pro Van Barry says Andy Roddick's exhibition match against Mardy Fish on Thursday evening will be played as scheduled despite Roddick's having to withdraw from the Nasdaq in the second round last week with a wrist injury.

"I've kept in touch with Andy's people and they've assured me he's OK," Barry said.

I'm glad that his injury isn't as bad as I thought it was (with the rumors and all) so *phew!*

Anyway, I hope the best for him during the clay season. He sure needs it.

SO we won't get any tennis on tv til RG?!!

Are we to assume that Andy was overly cautious about his injury during the Nasdaq?

1) Technically he is supposed to be healing from his wrist sprain.

2) Theoretically, he was running away from a 1st round loss in Miami

3) Realistically, he just wanted to be home to catch up on American idol nah, it was probably a combination of 1) and he probably wanted to be sure he doesn't damage his wrist even more

We always "hear" he was out in clubs in Austin. It wouldn't be surprising, but there's no point in gossiping about rumors.

Devotee, probably that is true - he said that the trainer told him there was an element of risk if he had continued to play. I don't think he wanted to mess with his wrist, y'know? Like the injury might not have been that bad, but if there was a risk of it getting bad if he continued to play, then obviously if he stopped playing, that was the right decision to make.

I'm hoping he's practicing on clay - while he couldn't pick up a racquet, I was hoping he was practicing moving on it and stuff, but I know that's a pretty unrealistic hope

Mardy has nothing to do, Andy has nothing to do, what else could they do but go out clubbing?
I'm fine with that as long as he gets his ass on clay and starts moving.

Any news on Andy's wrist or anything so far?

Just that he'll be ok to play the exhibition in Houston on Thursday.

Going to clubs is fine as long as it's not taking anything away from his health/fitness/energy etc.
