Blah.. I would have rather had Agassi than Canas up there. Fed needed the haircut.

I liked his hair before. Now he looks like everybody else in terms of hair. Too mainstream. Not that I'm wearing it long, on the contrary.

Mind you, perhaps like Hewitt (and Roddick, and Agassi) he might have realized long hair might advance baldness ... thus I understand his move.

Nice shoes, Andy.

You certainly can expect that from him.

And here's Roddick's strange take on his chances in Houston...

"Im going to feel fine, said Roddick, who crashed out last week in the third round at the last regular event of the ATP season, the Paris Masters. If Im not mistaken, there are a bunch of other guys in the field, too, who havent had that many matches going in.

I know Im not alone.


Sounds like a winner talking to me. ROTFL

This is Roddick in avoiding to come across as too straightforward ...
It happens many times, and it sounds strange ...

2 things...

1. I can't believe Heman is so tall! If Coria really is 5'9", then Henman must be 6'4", and Safin, 6' 7"!

2. Roddick looks like a complete wank with those shoes.

The picture is definitely interesting... not only for Roddick's shoes...

Hewitt (5'11'') looks much shorter than Gaudio (5'10'').
Roddick appears to be the same height as Henman and Federer (6'1'')... I thought he was much taller than that.
And finally, comparing with the others, Moya doesn't even look close to 6'3''.

Or are the shoes they're wearing that different?!

Also... ROFL Hewitt has a tan-line on his forehead lol!... check out his solo picture

Yeah, Roddick looks to be about the same height as Federer and Henman in that pic. What's with that? I thought Roddick was 6' 3" and Federer and Henman are 6' 1"?

And why does Gaudio not look like him at all? And how did Canas make it in to be an alternate? Is his ranking really that high? I don't recall seeing him win anything this year. I think I've seen more of guys like Haas and Kiefer doing well this year.

LOL! CANAS has been playing great lately if you havn't noticed, he also had some pretty solid results at Aussie and French i think...... like round 4's maybe??

he has won tournies recently as well

Canas leapfrogged over Johansson with his semi-final in Bercy, and finished in 11th spot (might go higher if he gets a chance to play this week).

He won 3 tournaments this year, and was close to winning a fourth (lost in 5 sets to Lopez in the Vienna final). Haas only won two, and Kiefer had at least a couple of finals but no wins. Perhaps they were more visible since most of their successes were in the US?

Canas was 274 at the beginning of the year. To say he's done well is an understatement.

All I remember of seeing Canas this year was in the US Open when he got crushed in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3, 6-3, by Roddick in an early round. I guess from that result, I assumed he wasn't completely back.

BTW, what was Haas' ranking at the beginning of the year? I'd say he did pretty well for himself this year, too! He also almost never gets blown off the court by anybody, including Roddick, Agassi, nor Federer. Besides, I like his game much better than Canas'. That one-handed backhand DTL of Haas' is to die for!

Gaudio at 5'9 is definitely shorter than Hewitt, Moya is probably closer to 6'2 than 3, and Roddick is clearly taller than Federer and Henman by the 1 inch he is listed over them.

Coria is also listed as 5'9", yet Gaudio looks taller than both Hewitt and Coria.

Before that 3rd round loss, he had won 2 straight tournaments (on clay.)

After that 3rd round loss, he won the next tournament he played, on indoor hardcourts; he then had a 1st round loss, followed by a final (on indoor hardcourts), a 3rd round loss at TMS Madrid to Johansson, and then a semifinal loss to Marat Safin at TMS Paris.

That gives him a total record of 26-6 since Wimbledon.
