FIRE IT UP!!!!!!!!!

Indystar has published an special insert about the RCA Championships:

http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dl...028/-1/ZONES04

Andy Roddick
Best RCA Championships finish: 3 titles

The lakeside Austin, Texas, tennis neighbor of Lance Armstrong may rarely need any competitive inspiration. But if he does, Roddick can always receive counsel from the former American race king, who lives just a short cycle sprint away.

Roddick has made his own sporting history at the RCA Championships, winning titles back-to-back in 2003 and 2004. That first trophy success pointed the Midwest-born player toward a US Open title that season. The multiple Wimbledon finalist showed victory was no fluke, winning again in Indy the next year.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh.

The results have shown."

Default Re: Andy, give us something to get excited about during the summer hardcourt season.

I just heard Roger saying in an interview on how he felt when he won each Wimby title, that he had the toughest time with 2004's final with Andy, because he felt exhausted in the end and he thought Andy had played the best match in his life, so it must've been a big blow for him losing that match. They showed it here on tv.

I just thought it was interesting... you know how everyone is constantly discussing about when Andy's big blow was, if during the USO or Wimby or whatever... I guess Roger's opinion could be more accurate than any of us.

I agree with you. Although Andy's slump might have started at the US open in 2004, I think it really began after last year's wimbledon final. Andy played so well and he still got beaten really easily. I have never seen him look so sad (although to be fair I haven't seen all of his matches!). Seeing him sat on his chair at the end with his head hanging while Roger was parading his trophy broke my heart. I think this was a major blow to his confidence because he had been working so hard to be able to beat Roger and despite his best efforts he lost. And I don't think he's ever fully regained his confidence since.

But wasn't Roger talking about the 2004 match? Andy didn't play that well last year at all. It was 2004 where Andy really gave him a scare. I just don't buy that that's where his slump started because he played great summer of 2004, winning Indy, awesome match in the semis of Cincy against andre, finals of canada, and played awesome really awesome at the USO til that QF match there and hasn't played like that since. So, Roger's opinion doesn't convince me.

Default Re: Andy, give us something to get excited about during the summer hardcourt season.

Some people think that Roger talking up Andy is his way of talking down Rafa.

Wimbledon 2004 was a great match. I still feel that if the rain delays hadn't come, Andy would've beaten Roger. Roger was on his heels the entire match and even after Roger beat him there was only a few points difference between them. I don't think Andy should have taken that match badly. Yes, it was a heartbreaker but the outcome of the match had most everything to do with luck being on Roger's side that day.

2005 was forgettable and boring. Andy didn't stand a chance from day one. He had been struggling all week, nearly got knocked out by that Braccilai &^%$ and then his semi-final with ToJo was held over for two days due to rain. Andy got screwed on their bad scheduling all week long. Roger, meanwhile, was perfectly rested and fresh for the final. Not surprising Roger won in straight sets in barely over an hour.

I enjoyed the Rafa-Roger final though. The first set was a gimmee, Rafa was obviously nervous and dropping the first set badly seems to happen to him a lot. After that he played better and better and took Roger the grass king to 2 TBs. I think that's amazing for someone who's specialty is claycourt and had previously not gotten past the third round of Wimbledon. Roger and Rafa are similar in that once they put their mind to something, they get very close to doing it. Roger desperately wants that RG title and Rafa, it seems, wants Wimbledon just as badly. A good match-up.

Maybe Roger was talking about the 2004 match but I meant last year. I thought he did play well in last year's final (maybe it's just because I was so excited to be there! ) and he would have beaten anybody else easily but he couldn't hurt Roger at all. I agree that the USO probably started it but I just think that the Wimbledon final was like the last nail in the coffin or something. Just my opinion.

I don't know, I'm just quoting what he said... I think it was probably where it all started - it may not have been a HUGE blow, but I'm sure it was big for him. He recovered, but losing in the USO was probably the biggest blow for him. I just don't think Andy lost that USO match just because. Something must've happened before so to make him get nervous and lose that last game. And maybe losing that final in Wimby had to do with it, in some way.

Roger played Andy 12 times, he know when he plays bad and well, and if he says he played one of his best matches ever, then it must've been damn good.

Hasn't Andy won the title twice? That must be a mistake unless he won the doubles competition at some point in his career. Anyways, good luck to him for the tourney. I think he'll be seeded second which gives him a good chance to make it into the final.
