john better set "kid roddick" straight in the way only a sibling can,
cause right now i think an older brother is as close as andy's gonna get to a psychologist.

Default Re: Do you believe anyone is telling andy roddick the truth?

but the Roddicks/commentators made the error in judgement by hyping Andy up in Sportscentury TV biography. Were they fooled by his enthusiasm, which hid his insecurity and hatred of hard work?

Well if andy Roddick doesn't know the state he is than he really needs help.

How funny we all think the same. I think Andy is either lying or he's in dennial. I agree that enyone who's seen his worst loses will agree that he's NOT fine. I also wonder if he watches his own matches, it doesn't look like from what he usually say in interviews... quite sad. His body language completely changes when he's down and it's impossible not to see. I hope his people is doing something about it, seriously.

andy needs to start having his matches taped & watch them!!!

i think that would be something...especially if he says he's kinda left searching for answers i think we all know just where you can find them... and the problems too

...that is if he is really actually interested in finding them
-simple yet effective idea-

"He's now gone from being a really great talent or whatever to, in my mind, not a great player anymore," Wilander said of Roddick. "Now it's becoming ordinary, totally ordinary."

Wilander expressed frustration with Roddick's tactics against Baghdatis, particularly his tendency to hit huge forehand returns from way behind the baseline he was also mystified by Roddick's decision to hit sliced backhands from positions of strength.

"When he's not in control of the point, he tries to hit a two-hander," Wilander said. "He's got the whole strategy turned around."

Wilander also said Roddick's increasingly frequent forays to the net were too predictable. "He's neutralized his own game and power; he's neutralized himself," Wilander said.
Would you tell me the link of this Wilander comments source?

I do understand that and I never said he shouldn't be told that... but you know, if it made ME cry, it must be so tough for him to assimilate it. I can understand why he's in sort of... 'denial' you could say. It must be really tough.

Just... I think it's enough already.

Default Re: Do you believe anyone is telling andy roddick the truth?

Every year you have a few new and talented playes stepping up, the top 10 changes all the time, the only constant is Roger at number 1. As long as Andy can keep himself in the top 10 (hopefully in the top 5) I guess, it's what he can really achieve career wise. It's almost impossible for him to be number 1 again, as sad as it can be.

As a fan, I wish him the best but reality is knocking at the door. He just need to be the best he can possibly be as he said before, but that might not be the best in the world.

That said, I still think he will have another winning streak at some point in his career. Let's wait and see.

He has the knowledge/ability to serve and return like a genius. I wasn't blind for 5 years.
It's unfortunate that his family won't allow him to work with a coach and practice partner who pick on his weaknesses in practice. He's very arrogant & ignorant(standoffish) because fulfilling wishes of friends/playing in exhibitions ARE MORE IMPORTANT than seeking HELP.

I've seen his footwork deteriorate since the summer of 2003.
Weighing 190-200 pounds only makes hiim slow as hell.
It made him give up. It's not because he can't move faster or has little talent.

BTW, Pat Mc called Marcos a genius.
Fowler called his bluff : "Pat, you used the description 'genius'?!" Pat laughed.

Pat's still pissed off about Andy, so he tried to explain it to himself by pretending that Andy got bashed bad by opponents with strategic genius. Yes, Andy never gave up & showed up correctly prepared.

Marcos didn't need to do much, but watch Andy give up on 15-40 opportunities. PatCoward declared, "He handled Roddick." Before the Ljubicic match, Pat thought Ljubicic was better than Andy..."Roddick got outaced....I didn't think Ljubicic was able to be outaced." DIMWIT CAPTAIN PAT.

Default Re: Do you believe anyone is telling andy roddick the truth?

Andy *was* quite ordinary in that particular match and he had beaten himself before Marcos even got a hold of him. That's what makes the loss even more disappointing and hard to take.

The only good news is that Andy managed to play like himself and with confidence for the first three matches. I don't know what happened before the Marcos match to make Andy suddenly doubt himself--did he even have a gameplan for Baghdatis? Who's not doing his job of scouting?--but somebody (Dean?) is not doing enough to pump Andy up and get him ready for unknown players as good as Baghdatis is.

Andy was playing not to lose instead of playing to win. That's a loser's mentality. He needs to snap out of it. He is capable of much better tennis and everyone knows it.
