i think it's the fact that he goes into bend position right away, while other players only bend for a shorter period of time. either way, the bend allows him to really push off and add some extra zip on his serves. just look at when he's tired and he's not serving well, ala Houston, which was apparent since he was having loads of trouble on his serves, the most trouble he's faces all year long.
ANYWAYS, moving along to finish filling this list
437. does so many charity events
438. the "tattoo" joke
439. played over 90 matches this year
440, played well over 100 matches this year, factoring in doubles

6 exhibitions between Dec-Jan!
If I were him, I'd care about my health,
stop messing around with Amanda, improve
everything and serve
better (he said he doesn't practice his serves much).
He doesn't worry
about serve
placement, therefore he double faults.
Andy
needs to make safer serves- slow it down
and use less
top spin.

...or else, the past
will repeat itself in
2004 if he doesn't make better decisions.

I don't know about you, but I'm sick of Andy's
"I'm lucky to win" and "I didn't expect to qualify
for Masters Cup and reach #1 this early" lines.
UHH, isn't he 21 already?
It's ok for other players to do what he did at 21, but
he shouldn't???


Some people are bad predictors..
You know, Andy wins only with lucky draws, and since
he doesn't volley often and runs the fastest, he isn't 1 of the most talented.
LMAO
I could recall the other recent slam winners who
had easier draws than he had.

wow Heya, a little rant eh? i\the only thing i don't agree with you is about hs serves. Andy very RARELY hits doublefaults, and you are judging by his masters cup play, where he's tired and his legs were obviously not 100%, therefore he couldn't get the proper push from them on the serves, which equals to doublefaulting. Roddick arguably has the best 2nd serve out there. and about the exo's, don't look into it that much, it's not grueling. and don't you worry, we will see a new Roddick come 2004, guaranteed by Gilbert. it's virtually impossible that we're gonna see the same 'ol Andy in 2004 with Brad working with him in the offseason. and about Andy being shocked that he's #1, a Slam champion, etc, i think that goes for everyone. when you dream about these things, and then it happens, it IS a shock no matter how good you think you are. but i would like to add that i don't think Andy realizes how good he is, might be from the constant media blitz he got ever since he turned pro. oh and andylover, LOVE your last point of why you like Andy

I think it's great that his accomplishments surprise him. because if he never thought he could get a slam or #1, then who knows what else he'll achieve - the sky's the limit, and I love his self-depracating humility.

Too bad that with his relatively bad service games in the Masters Cup, Andy *only* leads in 4 of 6 serving categories at year end.

I find it funny that long time tennis fans
have no idea that Andy hasn't played half his best tennis yet.
I was one of the few who said in March
that Andy would stun the doubters, but
you know, the hothead posters kept yapping:
no way, he's too weak! he faked his injuries!
he didn't win big titles, so that meant he'd do
nothing in 2003!

BTW, anyone who believes Andy
couldn't have reached #1 this year
because he needed
Brad's brains, is seriously naive.
With that logic, Blake and Fish will be top 5
with Brad as coach too.

heya, you're underestimating Brad I think. A lot of what Brad has done for Andy really is what helped him a lot. Just because we give Brad a lot of credit DOESN'T mean that Blake or Fish would be top 5 with Brad (though, I think they both could be top 5) - Brad and Andy clearly got along really well from the getgo and a perfect relationship will breed really good results, and that's what we saw. Obviously Tarik wasn't the best for Andy!

The difference is Andy was #6 before Brad entered.
I don't think if he'd lost tie breaks in Queens Club, Montreal, Cincinnati and U. S. Open, he'd be top 5.

Tarik helped Andy reach No. 6 from juniors...pretty impressive! I think Andy and Tarik just kind of outgrew each other and Andy had to take his game to the next level (ie, mental) which Tarik could not help him with.

Default Re: beat this!.....1002 ways we love andy!

yea, Tarik did not help Andy mentally at all and obviously it's huge for him. So I still maintain that Tarik was holding him back. Everything works out for a reason, Andy crashing out of the FO was important and has been said many times was the defining moment of his year and likely will end up to be the defining moment of his career.... but also considering what other players have said about Tarik it just sounds like a good thing that Andy is rid of him lol
