maybe im just finally learning something or paying to close attention but, in this practice clip
http://rapidshare.de/files/23362931/...k_075.mov.html

He seems silly like "how many ways can i practice getting as far behind the baseline as i can, before i fuck up with a slice." i mean 4 shots and he's half way back.

it's just that it is practiced here and executed in matches & i feel negative about it.

yet i know nothing.

I'm sure you don't know nothing - and it's not that you're learning something (although I'm sure you are!). Simple common sense dictates that what you do in practice is what you do in a match. It seems like no one in Andy's camp has any?

But standing behind the baseline wasn't even his problem today IMO. it was that he had no clue what he was doing out there and was acting as if he didn't know what James was gonna do.

Well, I got sucked into the tennis vortex for very superficial reasons around this time 03' and while i still enjoy it on that level...after a couple of years i have really enjoyed understanding more of the obvious...and not so obvious complexities.

I just hate that now that i understand more and am interested in a hidden depth, my favorite is crystal clear, and should only be used for objectification.

-don't deny it. its consistent.

You're not missing any negative thing.
Roddick relatives and employees have
trouble understanding what tennis is.
They can't possibly think he's enjoying negative attention and BAD training/results.
There are no late-in-career miracle Slam wins.
I guess no one minds seeing him scream and suffer in silence
while millions of people look down on him, especially in the bitter US.

Andy isn't proud of himself and looks for some mother and father figure
to guide him... It seems strange..
His conversations with friends are
more important than "doing the competitive job".
You're friendly with everyone....they need to give you support while you
fight them????!!!!!
He has a long chat with Blake in the middle of the match?
Is this a desperate need to kill the stress and pressure
he feels?

Tennis can't give him freedom to do much else.
No one should have him wrapped around their finger.

Ok...he's "excited". Didn't look exciting when he nonchalantly stood
still while James served and pushed a dropshot at HIS DAMN FACE (5-6 ADvantage Roddick).
Sorry, but I don't remember seeing Borg and Graf playing with no passion
and laughing.
No way did they chat and hug McEnroe and Seles while history and reputation were on the line.

Andy still hasn't beaten a top 10 player this year. Gonzalez was ranked 11 this week.

Didn't Blake lose to a guy called Capdeville on grass? Blake also lost to Gonzalez on grass. This is a very humiliating result.

Yep, but James played ridiculously awful in the match against Capdeville, so that's not quite fair. And he should've beaten Gonzo but choked. But he had never really done much on grass in his whole career.

You? Unable to find pictures? I find that hard to believe.

Here's some good ones I grabbed.

Thanks for those, Tangy!
I love that one of Andy and James at the net... it's like James is saying "good match" and Andy's just like "oh piss off..."

Shameful coaching. Andy's coaching himself. What is John doing?!
Andy isn't moving his feet much.
He had no slice/big body serve...
Not even putting 100% effort into adjusting it.
I see a careless 15 foot topspin serve.
It comes to a good returner's strike zone and no one needs to move to return
a winner.
He waits very long to slice. There's no heavy fast slice...
He has little knee bend to stay balanced with the backhand.

There are no rallies. Most of the balls are really slow and he didn't work
on coming to the net or retrieving drop shots.


In the Blake match, Dummy dove near the net twice and lost serve at 15-40?
Wonder why.

Wow, Andy's got a bitchface on in some of those pics. Funny . Maybe James dumped him and that's why he lost today .

The only real tennis he has played this year is in DC, let's hope they can win in Russia.

Thanks for the pictures, the match was disappointing but Andy never disappoints in pictures, what a shot - shame he didn't get the point.
