I don't think that Roddick will play this tourney this year. I wish I'm wrong, but he won't be 100% fit and helthy to play a tounament without 1 or 2 weeks rest.

Anyway, that is only my opinion

That's ok I know Andy has a nice relationship with this tounament and with Mac who owns the club. I bet he does play and then skips Monte Carlo as usual

My God. It's like they arranged the draw to give Andy the toughest possible route to the title.

But it's actually perfect. I mean Andy needs all the experience he can get against established clay players and if he loses early here it's not like he'll lose many ranking points. It would give him more time to recover and keep my dream (of him playing Monte-Carlo) alive.

Why won't Andy play MC?

I wanted to watch it because I'm on holidays for the whole of MC for once.

HAHAHAHA this made me laugh for some reason...
=================
Roddick's arrival is eagerly anticipated
Westside return is expected after Davis Cup success

By DALE ROBERTSON
Copyright 2007 Houston Chronicle

What was good for the U.S. Davis Cup team Saturday was also, hopefully, good for the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championships, which start Monday at Westside Tennis and Fitness.

When the Bryan brothers, Bob and Mike, did as expected and clinched the Americans' 3-0 quarterfinal victory over Spain, it ensured that Andy Roddick wouldn't have to get back on the court again at Winston-Salem, N.C. The "dead rubber" against Tommy Robredo today will be contested by Sam Querrey, Clay Courts defending champion Mardy Fish or Bob Bryan, although captain Patrick McEnroe confirmed that James Blake will play as scheduled against Fernando Verdasco.

"Probably while we're out celebrating tonight we'll figure out who's going to play that other match," McEnroe said. "I can tell you for sure that Andy is not going to be playing tomorrow because of his leg."

Roddick strained a hamstring in the Sony Ericsson Open quarters last week against Andy Murray and had to retire in the first set. It appeared to hold up fine in his straight-sets victory over Verdasco on Friday, a second match in three days might have tempted fate, especially if the outcome of the tie against the Spaniards had been hanging in the balance.

The 24-year-old American, who makes his downtime home in Austin, is Houston's top seed, the tournament's main drawing card and a three-time former champion. His close relationship with Westside owners Jim and Linda McIngvale ensured that he would make every effort to visit with the tournament moving elsewhere in 2008.

Still, hamstrings are pesky injuries and Roddick won't risk jeopardizing his season, a friendship and a hefty six-figure appearance fee.

ATP spokesperson Pete Holtermann said he "has no reason to believe" Roddick isn't coming but conceded that, until he's on the court playing, his status is "touch and go." Roddick faces Spaniard Albert Montañes in the first round, most likely Tuesday night.

"Knowing Andy, if he didn't intend to play he would have pulled out before the draw was made (Friday)," Holtermann said. "But he might get here and not feel comfortable on the clay. We'll just have to see."

With Germany also clinching against Belgium Saturday, the Clay Courts should be getting a reasonably well-rested Tommy Haas, too. The 2004 champion, seeded third behind Roddick and Blake, is expected to be given today off.

Rain forced the first round of qualifying for the tournament to be played on Westside's indoor hardcourts Saturday, but the second round will be moved onto the American green clay today, starting at 11 a.m.

One face familiar to Houston tennis fans advanced. Dusan Vemic, playing his eighth match in nine days here after winning the River Oaks International qualifying and reaching the quarters there Friday, handily defeated American Theron Cole 6-1, 6-2.

don't worry, I have the same dream! In Jo-land, Andy is going to play MC next year and I am going to do my best to go and watch him!

Tough draw, but I'd rather him get this kind of draw when he's playing on home soil, and especially at the Houston tournament. If he does get through a draw like this, it's gonna give him confidence and it 'should' translate when he goes through his red clay Euro trip. If he can't get through this kind of draw at home, then Connors is gonna give him a beating. It's simple .
