Throwing away matches when he's "winning comfortable"

Biggest disappointment of 2005
Losing the Wimbledon Finals yet again, although it's pretty much expected
USO 2005

His best win
Cincy 2R vs. Ferrero
Cincy SF vs. Hewitt

Worst choke
RG 2R vs. Acasuso

Best Andy quote in 2005
"I’ve won five titles this year now, which isn’t bad for a terrible year, as people keep saying. Of course I would trade five titles for one Grand Slam but that’s not the way it works."

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Andy

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
AO and/or USO, but I really wanted him to win Wimbledon

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
USO
But, I still want that Wimbledon title

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
--

[b]Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?[b]
No - I think Dean has done a great job, in terms of improving his physical fitness, and improving several aspects of his game. Moreover, most loses are due to some malfunction in his head So, can't really blame Dean for those...

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
In spells, backhand, volley, net-game

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Consistency in ALL aspects of the game (and that includes confidence), return

Best outfit
Blue polo-t (as spotted @ Queen's) with white shorts

Worst outfit
Didn't really like the reebok gear from earlier this year

Best commercial
Those pretty meaningless, but funny Lexus ads

Worst commercial
AMEX Mojo ad

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
More or less the same -- a good year, but not a great one...

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
B -- there's a lot of room for improvement

Default Re: Andy Roddick 2005 Year in Review!

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy
Suprised? Uh... i'd say the Hrbaty match where he won like 1 and 2. Impressed would be when he pulled one over Hewitt for like the second time ever. Woot worthy indeed! I was impressed at how he dealt with having a back injury during Paris, especially against Ferrer

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan?
Conceding the MP against Verdasco was good character, good sportsmanship. That made me real proud. Also bouncing back from the first round loss in montral and getting to the final of Toronto was pretty cool. Although the first thing shouldn't really have happened lol. Winning Queens too.

Match that made you cringe
That should be plural and i'm not gonna list them. I have things to do before i turn 20

Biggest disappointment of 2005
Oh my god, Muller 1st round. In the US. In a slam. On his birthday. The less said about it the better. Also not progressing in the RG. Acasuso brings up some bad memories. The Dream team crashing out 1st round too

His best win
Against Hewitt, i'd say. Or i liked the 5-setters in Wimbledon...uh, what was it? Bracciali, Grosjean (?) and Johansson. All pretty tough. Good job.

His worst loss
Mathieu, 1st round.
Muller 1st round
And to top it off, Ginepri in Indy
(i didn't like the Acasuso choke. That loss was BAD)

Best Roddick Match (win or lose)
I liked Hewitt one again, Ferrero 2nd round was awesome.

Worst choke
ACASUSO RG. No need to blow a 2 set lead. Thanks.

Best Andy quote in 2005
There's too many and i can't remember. I liked the one about reading in the dark from wimbledon and making sandwiches with no pressure. (very paraphrased lol)

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Hmmm..tow groups of people. People in the top ten. And people not. It's Andy, duh

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
Frankly, i didn't bother thinking about it.

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
I won't bother again. Just to be safe.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
If it helps him, SURE THING.

[b]Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?[b]
No i don't think it's that simple. Deans obviously helping him, you can see it translating into wins slowly. He needs something though. Maybe a co-coach...or something.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Movement around court, his footwork is a little better. Forecourt game is definitely better. Percentage serving i guess too.

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
EVERYTHING. There's not really anything to be complacent about now, is there? Work on the BH DTL. That shot is hot. And it works. Returning so he can break serve because most of the time the TBs are just not fun

Best outfit
The blue tee (: So pretty!

Worst outfit
Um...i don't know. I don't think his RBK stuff was good this year. The Lacoste stuff is cool...all black is boring though!

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
Hmm..i think it averages out the same. They each were better and worse in different respects.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?[/quote]
Ahhh, let me see. A consistent year with several shockingly low dips...that would get a C i guess. That's pulled up by ending the year 3 with 5 titles. For his own record i'd say like D or D+.

Enforcing his power game, using his strengths rather than relying on his weaknesses.

Default Re: Andy Roddick 2005 Year in Review!

Match that surprised/impressed you the most about Andy Andy's win against Hewitt shows that he has the game to beat the top players.

Moment that made you most proud to be a Roddick fan. Match against Verdasco where he gave him the point on match point even though he ultimately lost.

Match that made you cringe. Match against Brachiali where he almost lost and got in a lot of trouble for supposedly being rude.

Biggest disappointment of 2005
Roland Garros Match against Acasuso. He should have won that match.

His best win Match against Hrbatey where he won 6-1 6-2 is the best scoreline Roddick has had this year.

His worst loss Loss to Hewitt. If Roddick had won that match (which he had a great chance to) there would be a good chance that he would have won the finals and who knows what that would have done for his confidence and ranking. Unfortunately in the process of losing to Hewitt, Roddick was crucified because of a bathroom break, got Hewitt in his head, forgot how to play tiebreakers, and lost a lot of confidence.

Best Roddick Match (win or lose) Davis cup against Roddick. Roddick winning on clay and in 5 sets is virtually unheard of.

Best moment (on or off court) Winning any of his titles especially Queens.

Worst moment (on or off court) Losing 3 consecutive first round matches.

Worst choke U.S. Open match against Muller on Andy's best surface.

Best Andy quote in 2005 Too many to pick from.

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006? His mojo

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005 All of them (a bit wishful thinking there)

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006 All of them provided he makes the improvements i recommend.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006? If it makes him happy and helps him win.

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach? He should get a physcoligist and keep Dean. A coach can only do so much.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
Volleys, Backhand

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006? Don't want to be mean but here is always room for improvement. Here are some of the things i think he needs to work on :

Forehand- Needs to start hitting it with confidence a foot inside the baseline not a foot inside the service box. Also it would be cool if Roddick could come up with some angles once in a while like Fed does.

Backhand- Be able to hit in consistenly especially when under pressure. Hit some down the line. Try to get a few winners with it.

Volleys- Going in the right direction but needs improvment. Also needs to improve approach shot. Can't hit it straight to the person and expect to make a good volley.

Fitness- Really good, but just continue to keep working on it.

Serve- As good as it gets, but of course Andy can keep working on placement.

Serve Return- Must do something so he at least gets the ball back into the court. It wouldn't help if he could go on the offensive by hitting a good service return.

Hit overheads with authority again.

Work on the mental game.

Keep working on movement which is kind of tied in to fitness.

Best outfit That blue shirt at queens

Worst outfit The 2004 U.S. Open shirt. That thing was so ugly that i don't care what year we are in. Also it would help if Roddick could get dry-cool material.

Best commercial Lexus commericals

Worst commercial Andy's mojo

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year? Worse

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005? It probably would be an A for just about anyone but i'm going to give Roddick a B- just because of his lack of big wins and stupid losses.

Best Andy quote in 2005
It's in my sig

Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?

any ranked in the top 50...bah..

Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005

AO, for sure once Fed went out

Slam you think Andy will win in 2006

AO is his best shot.

Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?

He needs to win.

Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?

Yes get Jim Courier.

What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?

backhand, return...vollies

What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?

Winning via not choking...

Best outfit

All Black uso.

Worst outfit

all white all the time...thanks Lacoste!

Best commercial

Trophies falling on Andys head.

Worst commercial

hmmm...no contest on that one

Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?

Worse. 2004 he was two points and a set a way from Wimbledon, he did equal or better in all the majors(except AO), and he won a masters in 04.

How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?

For a top ten guy, the number 3....C+

Hum? Fereder has been screwing Andy for almost 3 years now. Do you mean they should change positions, like Andy on top next time?
