NO>.

sounds rife with publicity too.
he does'nt sound as if he was ever happy about having to qualify, take 12-24 hrs to get the story out then decline...instant better press than a fourth round exit...because at least the thought of a top ten player trying to qualify makes you look cool, or good or something (just look through the first pages here) then when you decline its not really your fault cause you deserve better treatment i love it.

andytude is my favorite...it looks good on him, he should throw his weight around more he has enough.

its okay to have an attitude, just own up to it.
it happens to the best of us.
i think somewhere in there he has the goods to back it up. i know.

look its easy:
"im larah ...im a bitch. -sometimes "


those comments only confirm the fact he needs head help ASAP, FOR HIS OWN GOOD-FIRST.

Man oh man, someday AR.com is gonna get sued for ripping off other people. Maybe if the site got its act together and only posted things that they received from Andy's people, they wouldn't have been "on the bandwagon"
-------------------------------------------
Delray Beach Details
January 28th, 2006 12:29 pm
By Andyroddick.com Staff

Being the top ranked American men’s tennis player, Andy Roddick can rarely fly under the radar. So when he flew into Delray Beach Friday afternoon from Austin Texas, everyone jumped to conclusions. (including us at Ar.com). Andy did discuss the potential opportunity to enter the qualifying tournament at Delray Beach with Tournament Organizers, which snowballed into a media frenzy.

“Andy had informed us that he was considering playing in our qualifying tournament, as direct entries were closed and our wild cards had been distributed weeks in advance. However, he did not commit and after careful consideration following an on-site training session, Andy told us that he would not participate in the qualifying tournament. Delray Beach Tournament Director, Mark Baron, set things straight, “He instead will remain in South Florida and resume training for the upcoming Davis Cup tie. We were obviously looking forward to Andy’s participation, we wish him good luck next week and we hope he will play next year.”

Initially Andy was looking at the Qualifying entry as an opportunity to better prepare for the upcoming Davis Cup competition with Romania (Feb. 10-12) in La Jolla, California. But after careful consideration following a practice session with fellow American Vince Spadea in Delray Beach, Andy decided that a week of training in South Florida would sufficiently prepare him for next week.

“I love the wind. Awesome,” Andy voiced his discomfort with the blustering conditions at Delray Beach during the training session. Andy politely turned down any formal interviews with the media yesterday. Unfortunately, the commotion of yesterday afternoon was followed by the withdrawal of James Blake from this week’s event.

“In order to get into the tournament you have to enter 42 days in advance and Andy didn’t do that,” ATP supervisor Tom Barnes helped explain the entry process. “The only other way to get in is to get a wild card or to play qualifiers and win, or be a lucky loser if there’s a spot. Or if one of the wild cards withdrew before we made the draw.”
Vince Spadea, who played the qualifying rounds in Sydney a few weeks back, commented on the grind of the Qualifying tournament. “Playing two matches in one day is challenging,” Spadea said.

Frankly speaking, you cannot withdrawal from something you never officially entered, but in Andy’s case, the excitement surrounding his game tends to blur reality, as we have often seen in the tabloids. Ar.com is sincerely apologetic for jumping on that bandwagon. Check back to Ar.com for more of Andy in South Florida as he prepares for Davis Cup.

Andytude's great when his game's solid like in August 2003.

IMO, he did a 180 degree turn.

The spoiled life + desire to make everyone happy off court destroyed him.... He didn't take charge of his matches + schedule....
I don't think anybody was concerned at all....they jumped on the RODDICK PROMOTION bandwagon (did the SPORTSCENTURY TV BIOGRAPHY)

He wasted 2 set leads and needed McEnroe to help him win the BELGIUM DAVIS CUP MATCH. He didn't care if he lost to Federer or Agassi, and was very unprepared at all the SLAMS. His poor fitness killed his self esteem also.....the mental energy evaporated.

He has no game plan....he can't make himself look worse to the media....
A plot to look the best possible isn't really in his mind. That's probably for Federer or Agassi..... Andy hates himself.
His desire is to look like the untalented CLOWN.
...the Roddicks don't want to admit that he was the replacement for Bro John, who couldn't continue to play....

It really was a shame about John Roddick.


Saw him play as a junior........he had a tremendous amount of talent.....plus fire and passion for the game.


Too bad he hurt his back...............I really think he would have been among the best.

Andy called John a hero and was upset about the back injury.
Andy hurt his back, but played another exhibition.
(NOBODY WILL STOP DONATING MONEY IF HE CAN"T PLAY IN FRONT OF SCREAMING 9 yr. old girls.)
If you brag about losing 10 pounds, PLEASE DON'T GAIN MORE MUSCLE....
Anyone with common sense knows this.
Then again, the Roddick Team's :retard: :retard:.

Andy gave up most everywhere...
-DID A TV SHOW instead of going to MASTERS CUP (again, he disappeared in 2004 and 2005),
-Rome,
-Hamburg (lazy dropshot at 5-6--the worse I've ever seen),
-Australian Open,
-US Open,
-FO,
-even Wimbledon (barely was concerned after winning 2 sets, but he had to dive volley to save the 2nd round)

He knew he was Drowned Duck before the final. No use in holding comedy skits for reporters anymore.
He was a drama queen. Nervous and apologetic that he hit a drop shot that brushed the net + dropped over TOJO's courtside.
....AR was really heavy +
lethargic after serving predictable 140 mph + wasn't blasting backhands or
being patient before serves /volleys)

-DAVIS CUP FINAL (happy to play tiebreaks like it's sudden death...that's it)
Forgot that he choked on a 3rd set set point (double fault)
-Olympics (smiled + kidded around with friends instead of getting game together)
Draw wasn't too difficult either.

-Thailand,
- Toronto
- CIncinnati.

Dumb prick cries about "tough competition".
YES, Andy....that's why Federer can play bad + scrape by Zabaleta, Ancic, Minar, Davydenko, Haas, Ferrero, Nalbandian, Ljubicic, Safin, Hewitt, Agassi + YOU (Basel 2001 3 6 6 3 7 6
, Wimbledon 2004,
Cincinnati,
Toronto (andy did nothing but hit forehands and lost 15-40 & 0-40 BREAK POINT CHANCES)..

He just stood. waiting for the inevitable celebration of his opponents.

I don't even know why I bother pretending that Andy has priorities in Tennis. He fakes his passion for Tennis, just like he fakes his modesty. His real ambitions lay in sloth and poker.

Dean only encourages his fear and expectations of failure and allowes him to behave like a brat.

Oh well, now that we're all floored with disappointment, maybe we can stop having great expectations for him. If this is indeed a sample of 2006 Andy, then we might as well just sit back and be miserable.
