Default Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

I first noticed him at the French Open 2001. The Eurosport commentators were bigging him up, saying he is the next big thing. I watched that match, and I remember I was cheering for Chang (for sentimental reasons ) but when Andy won, I was quite happy, especially since he was cramping throughout the fifth set! And then he cried , which actually made me laugh (I'm horrible I know )Then when he played Hewitt. This was the period where I hated Hewitt with a passion and I wanted Andy to win. When Andy retired I felt sorry for him, and then that stupid interviewer wanted to speak to Andy when he was in tears. Since then I have been a fan. I think I became a big fan at the US Open 2001 when he played that qualifier who was a friend of his brother. I forgot his name!

I think that the forehand is one of Andys main weapons.

Default Re: What did you first notice about Andy Roddick?

I should have included 2003 on the list (just the whole year, lol). That was his breakthrough year when he owned the hardcourts and gobbled up tons of TV time and I remember seeing him everywhere in newspapers and magazines.

2003 is when bandwagon hoppers like me showed up at MTF.

2003 was a vintage year
