Roddick, Blake Take Practice Swings At AT&T Pro-Am

http://the-slice.com/2014/02/roddick...at-att-pro-am/


Quote:


Fellow retirees Andy Roddick and James Blake were seen together during a practice round for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in California on Thursday. The pair looked bundled up on a chilly day as they chatted with their caddie… Larry Stefanki? It sure looks like Andy’s old coach (hard to tell with a beanie on) but whoever it is, I’m sure the trio had a lot of fun hitting the green together to prepare for the weekend.



Other celebrities entered in the competition include Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Condoleezza Rice and Wayne Gretzky.

^I forgot to post this video -- it's an on-course interview with James and Andy at the ATT Pro-Am that aired on CBS. And yes, that's Clint Eastwood.
There's also a pic posted on Twitter, too.
I was laughing at how James took his hat off for the interview, but Andy left his on.

---------------------------------

Some quotes from the Portland Tribune after another PowerShares Series event last night:

Quote:
Courier and Agassi are both 43. Blake is 34, having retired from the ATP Tour last year. McEnroe, meanwhile, is 55 and -- at 5-10 and 173 pounds -- a pound or two heavier than during his ATP career, and just as lean and mean.

"He's still serving great, moving really well," Blake said. "His hands will always be there. It's incredible how well he plays. I hope I can still move like him when I'm his age."

Blake is getting a chance to visit with and get to know some of the luminaries he grew up watching.

"You get to play with legends, travel around with them," Blake said. "It feels like you're back on (the ATP) tour, but for real short amounts of time as opposed to being in the grind all year. I know it was a lot quicker to get my first title out here than on the main tour. It's a good feeling to play against guys you looked up to as a kid."

Blake, who lives in Westport, Conn., has a young daughter and another one on the way. He hasn't played much tennis since retirement, but in recent weeks has trained heavily, and the results have paid off recently with victories over several of his more significant elders.

"If I could tell people I beat McEnroe, Courier and Sampras in a couple of days, they'd be impressed," said Blake, once ranked No. 4 in the world. "I don't need to mention it's on the Senior Tour."

...

Blake was a member of the 2008 U.S. team that won the Davis Cup final, selling out three days at Memorial Coliseum.

"I remember the old building," he said. "Last time I was here, we were lifting up the Davis Cup trophy. Andy and I started playing Davis Cup together in 2001. With all the losses we went through, it made it sweet to win it at home in Portland. Great fans, great team, and we all got along so well.

"This city will always going to have a special place in my heart. That was my best memory ever on tour. I'm happy to be back here."
That's news to me.

JB is coaching Sock at IW, not sure if it is a long term thing.
