The trainer said that he had an acute and severly bruised foot and that it possibly would lead to a default...Roddick was even walking gingerly during the first set and half and, MIRACULOUSLY, he is running to the chair at the change over! And running back and forth getting to drop shots and lob. You have to give it to him, he is such a great actor:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: . Anyone is tired like me!

Even Jim and John are talking about FAKE injury!

God I'm sick of him! And the worst part about it, is that he is only 20 years old. We might have 15 years of faking to go...:fiery:

He's hurt Rus. You can see it on his face. He has a heel injury and a sore back. I unfortunately think injuries are going to hold him back from totally fulfilling his great potential.

And don't forget that hard courts are awful on the body. Even a young body like Roddick's. How many players have withdrawn from this years men's draw? I think it's about ten! :eek:

I don't know if Andy can hold on! Three out of five sets will take it's toll on a player.

I didn't believe the injury either, until they showed that picture of his foot, it was not looking too good. The trainer said that it was a bone bruise, and that is what it looked like when they showed his foot.

Thanks Mrs G and JP! :wavey:

If Andy Roddick is going to have a long and fruitful career, he's going to have to concentrate on the majors and play a decresed schedule. I think playing about 15 tournament a year would be just right for Roddick. He's not exactly light on his feet like Lleyton Hewitt is, or Stefan Edberg was. Edberg never missed playing a grand slam tournament! :D I just hope Andy has similar longevity. But I don't know. He has gotten a few leg and foot ailments early in his career. And that a worry to me. :(

i liked him when he first came on tour and when i didn't see much of him on tv. These days, his fist pumping is worst then Hewitt and the bowing is rediculous.

All I saw was a dark spot on his foot. makeup can easily make a dark spot. How do you run around full speed on a hard court with that nasty bruise and not at least appear to have difficulties? I think Andy is playing much much better than in the past cuz he is PATIENT in rallies and really moving the ball around with angles. But the acting is ridiculous. :rolleyes:

I have suffered from bone bruises such as the one they showed on Roddicks foot. When I used to wrestle, it idin't matter how much it hurt, if I got into the match, and it was an important one, I would be flying around the mat, doing everything I could to beat my opponent. Sometimes if you get a big enough rush of adrenaline you can block out the most severe pain.

Henin had blisters last year in Wimbledon, lost the first set and came to beat Capriati in the second and the third set. The extent people would go because of their dislike of a player is unbelievable and as usual Treufreund is there to support evil and propagate cheating...

@Treufreund
BTW, did your parents ever taught you the difference b/w good and evil? If they did, you either did not listen well or you have forgotten everything. I shall ask you this again, do you get ashamed of yourself sometimes?

That was a faking great match!

In truth doing a makeup is a little bit ridiculous, but I have to agree (dun jump on me plese). Andy sometimes overdoes his emotion. I am sorry, I watch his match agaisnt Alex Corretja, and really he was pumping fist, screaming, jumping up and down when he won point that it was a bit disrespectful to other players

when people complain about Hewitt on court antics, people very quickly jump on him, why? Because in tennis, he is the bad boy so everything he does is bad. If Andy did it, because he is the great american hope, people defend him and say it is his personality. Maybe it is his personality, but if you have these kind of expressions when you are in a match prepare to get negative opinions from other people just like what people did to Hewitt.

Can anyone remember years ago in 1998 when Venus did her victory dance when she beat Mary Pierce in last 16, there were so many negative press going after that. Andy Roddick expression and his on court antic is ten times worst than that, so why can't he get some negative opinions from other people as well?

Roddick was faking but Chela was foolish to fall for it. after his faking cramps against Lappentti, all players should have gon eon the alert bec now for sure they KNOW that Roddick is a faker. so really i blame Chela for allowing himself to be so stupidly conned into lowering his intensity instead of taking advantage of a supposedly "injured" opponent. of course that bad line call that Chela got at 5-3 allowing Roddick to serve for the second set was just unforgiveable.

Wongqks,

I found Venus's dance in '98 offensive. But Andy's antics are much worse...I can't stand him, and if he wasn't American, very few people would support him at the USOpen.

Sep 4th, 2002, 02:17 PM
Venus' twirling thing (which Serena also now does) is seriously irritating. i actually can't stand it. but nothing compares to Drama Queen Andy. he seriously sucks. :mad: :mad:

Those who hate him think he's faking. Those who love him, feel otherwise.

Am I wrong?

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 02:36 PM
you're wrong. Courier and MacEnroe LOVE Andy, and they both agreed that he was faking.

darren cahill
Sep 4th, 2002, 02:36 PM
the little twirl dance that Venus and Serena do is nothing compared to the annoyance i feel when Andre blows kisses and bows to the 4 corners of the stadium! i friend of mine once said hes the gay-est straight guy hes ever seen. agassi is too much sometimes.

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 02:38 PM
your feelings about Agassi make sense to me Darren. different things annoy different people. i don't understand why JP can't see this. :confused:

CellJr300
Sep 4th, 2002, 02:38 PM
It doesn't really bother me as much if they celebrate after the match. Once you have won feel free to do whatever you want. I like emotion on the court, and there is no player who really bothers me, other than Rusedski, so the more emotion the better.

More D-RAMA! From the Marlon Brando of teen
tennis himself-ANDY "Elizatbeth Taylor" RODDICK!

Woohoo! Yeah, I'm sure that if Roddick get's his
butt over to South America or Spain they will tear him apart.

Let's see who else did he pull the "Help, me I've just
Fallen" routine to.. Lapentti, Chela, Alex .....

Sep 4th, 2002, 03:00 PM
tennischick, thanks for seeing what i was saying...this is just my opinion, but i dont care for any type of those celebrations at all. Agassis most of all seems the most fake and insincere (did i spell that right? LOL) Does he only love the crowd and blow kisses and all that crud when he wins? he doesnt do it when he loses so he hates us then? I know you wouldnt do it of course if you lost cause its the other persons victory and you'd look stupid, but you look stupid anyways--I was at my parents the other day after andre won and my dad who is a bit on the truck driver side, almost blew chunks when he saw agassi do that. he was like, give that guy a tu-tu

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:12 PM
lol@Darren :D i'm an Agassi fan but even i sometimes get irritated by all the kissing and bowing. but you also have to be there. if Andre stopped doing it now, the crowds would become so pissed! all the bowing and scraping and kissing are now expected of him. he's probably as irritated with the whole thing as we are but is now stuck with his "trademark" behavior! :D :D

Whether Andy was faking or not - is besides the point at this point. As it was last night - because he won.

If his opponent had the goods to win it all - then that is what he should have done. But the final score had a win in Andy's column. By the beginning of the third set - it was the best two out of three, and Andy was up for it and pulled it out. If his opponent was put off by Andy's injury timeout - and it rocked his concentration level in the 2nd set - then by the third, he should have been ova it. If he wasn't - then he is not a true fighter, warrior and believer and did not deserve the win. Andy deserves congrats on his win - IMO.

What I want to know is: what type of material is Andy's blue shirt made of. It looks like the Lycra Serena's catsuit is made of - I mean. If his shirt is the same stuff - then look-out cause, they (Serena & Andy), are both introducing a material that is off the hook. I loved his blue shirt. And even the red shorts looks to be of the same material.

tennichick! :wavey: I'll let him have his bows and kisses if he would just promise to stop blowing his snot on the court though. He is disgusting. The least the USTA can do is put a box of kleenex on the court next to his chair when he plays. that guy has the most snot of anyone i've ever seen..

by the way, i wish chris meyers (not sure of the spelling) on usa network would stop putting a "T" in Wimbledon. its not WIMBLETON:mad:

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:23 PM
Gogirl: i posted on atpworld that i blame Chela for falling for Andy's faking act. by now all of Andy's opponents know that he pulls this stunt. if they keep falling for it, it's their fault.

Darren: now i totally agree with you. the snot-blowing thing that Andre does is disgusting. maybe he's not allowed to blow it into the towels as others may get kinda grossed out by that. so he plasters the ground instead. it does look crude.

Leute are we really serious here?
Do we want to also tell professionals how to celebrate their hard-fought victory?
You can be on the sideline and dictate how you feel they should celebrate, but that is totally unfair. When any of you are in their shoes and experience the feeling of coming thru, then you can say all these, before then i refuse to consider this a legitimate discuss!

Note, how you celebrate after a match and what you do during a match though are two different things!

darren cahill
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:27 PM
LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOL :D about the towels. That is pretty foul. I am glad i am not the only one who noticed this...i mean people pick on so may other players for goofy or noticeable things and yet i've never seen or heard anyone complain about this...it is incredibly foul. It probably wasnt the rain that Hantuchova slipped on that day, Agassi was practising on that court and blew one!

dude, chill out. no one said that they CANT do that stuff or shouldnt. Just people saying "hey, i dont care for this, or that annoys me" People should be allowed to say as much. I dont like Celine dion very much, am i allowed to say that? Can i say i dont PREFER agassi to blow kisses cause it seems a bit phoney? Didnt say he COULDNT. just said i dont like it...cool?

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:37 PM
Hantuchova should sue. he can afford it. :D :D

calm down Servenrichie. i don't like to see Serena twirling but she can twirl as much as she flippin' wants to as my opinion doesn't matter in the least!

i actually enjoy it when players outright celebrate their victories, and when the celebration seems spontaneous and heart-felt. like when some players cry when they win bec they are so happy. but the whole twirling thing seems like a pre-planned routine that the Sisters have taken to doing. it's as spontaneous as Anna's tracking down the nearest camera. it irritates some and it doesn't irritate others. it's no biggie. that was my point -- that different things that players do irritate different spectators.

servenrichie
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:37 PM
Execuse me mate, you are the one who needs to chill it, re-read your posts, they were what prompted my reponse and you will get it.
I find Agassi's kisses charming!

servenrichie
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:41 PM
You guys need to calm it. Do you actually know how ridiculous this whole discussion is?
I dont give a crap how many twirls Serena or Venus do as long as they win their matches. But i guess, if you dislike someone you keep getting irritated because of slightest things.
As i said, you guys need to keep a lid on it!

darren cahill
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:41 PM
well you just proved the point of the recent posts yourself, how one person can like something and someone else doesnt. thats all we were saying, cause someone mentioned venus and serena being annoying with the twirls they do and i said, well i dont mind that as much as agassis kisses. never said he couldnt celebrate that way if he so wished. just said i dont like to see it. I did re-read my posts and didnt see what i was supposed to see.

tennischick! funny post again!

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:47 PM
Servenrichie i've come accept that you see yourself as given the role of defending the Sisters on this board. and if they were the exclusive focus of this thread i would undrestand your interjection. but the point is that players like Andy Roddick, Agassi and the Sisters do things that irritate some fans but the exact same behaviors do not irritate others. please don't act as if thei is a Williams bashing thread bec it isn't. and a sense of humor wouldn't hurt mate.

darren cahill
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:51 PM
tennischick, thanks for the comments and the backup. I never meant to take this so seriously. actually my blowing kiss and snot stuff was meant to be humorous. And I wasnt the one who mentioned the williams sisters and the mary pierce thing. I just said i didnt care for agassis kisses and not because of any celebration reasons, i just think it makes him look a bit, well, girly.

I'll stop while ahead. It is funny how when Jennifer Capriati won her match against Dokic after Dokic retired, i read post after post after post after post about how everyone hated how she smirked or smiled after the win. I go and say, I dont like agassis kisses cause they are kinda goofy blah blah and hells gates open. good grief.

see ya soon tennischick. and GO JENNIFER LATER TODAY! AND SWIRL AND BLOW KISSES AND BOW DOWN AND BLOW BOOGERS WHEN YOU WIN!

tennischick
Sep 4th, 2002, 03:57 PM
bye Darren! nice funning with ya! i'm off too.

but now that i think about it, someone should really tell Agassi how his new coach really feels about him...:p :p
