I agree. Monfils deserves it. He can be such a cocky ahole on court. He can be up on you 5-2 and still throw a huge celebration for a random winner. Great to see Federer silence him in straights.

Having never been court-side at Wimbly or Roland Garros or where ever before, it makes me wonder if there's a bit more banter and even insults between the pros not usually picked up on mic, during games than one might think?

Monfils just smiled, he didn't say anything to roddick and he didn't look at him. So I don't know why Roddick had the nerve to say that. Maybe if Roddick had the game to beat Monfils on clay then maybe this wouldn't have happened.

This isn't the Davis Cup. You don't get the crowd into it like that. If the crowd wants to do it themselves, that is one thing, but you don't do something like this.

Wait wait wait, Roddick's doing the wrong thing here by calling Monfils out?




Let me remind you Monfils was already absolutely destroying Roddick, and Roddick could care less about what was going on. Monfils already up like a double break in the 3rd, proceeds to showboat, and incite the crowd, and acting like a total jackass.



Could you really imagine Nadal doing that against Federer in the FO final of 2008? Yeah, there would be tons of backlash. Yet Monfils gets a free pass because he's playing Roddick. Nice double standards people.

Many people inside the locker room dont like roddick. I wouldnt be surprised if monfils was one of them. Remember, roddick is the same guy who wouldnt let blake (bad back) fly back on his private jet from russia in davis cup. He is an a**hole, and deserves to be treated like one.

Its not like he was Pavel vs agassi at the us open where the crowd was insulting pavel's family.

I agree with most of you on this match. If you saw that match you are most likely no longer supporting Monfils against any player. I'd like to compare him to the NBA's JR Smith. He hits some great shots but not nearly enough to make his behavior acceptable.

Monfils was doing the normal 'Monfils' thing, and Roddick let it get to him. Monfils wasn't doing anything outside of the rules.

Agreed. But Roddick's always whining about something, and it's not like he's the picture of sportsmanship out there all the time. Roddick definitely uses Home Court advantage here for the USO, so why can't Monfils at the FO?

I'm not saying that Monfils was right in his actions, just making the point - Roddick always finds something to complain about when he loses. This time it just happened to be Monfils.

This post was posted under Best high backhand overhead
Roddick

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5H5pIHfl_M&NR=1

:lol:

In addressing this post.
I'm a strong believer that huge serves work on grass. Also, Americans have a fairly easy transition to grass and I think Roddick showed he is more than capable of winning Wimbledon in his epic match against Roger. Look for Andy "The Rocket" Roddick to win 2010 Wimbledon :)



There's only one Rocket, sir. And that's the great Rod Laver.

Another cheap shot at Roddick
You must have missed it...he ducked a backhand overhead volley like 10 feet wide into the doubles alley...ala Roddick @ Wimbledon. :lol:

And more so
Correct, peak Hewitt > peak Roddick, as evidenced by their h2h during this time period. Heck even now a past prime Hewitt still gives Roddick troubles.

Noting Roddick won't even be top 5 seed for Wimbledon come on...
How? He sucks on clay compared to Fed, Rafa, Nole, JMDP, and Murray, he definitely won't be a top 5 seed by the time Wimbledon comes, his CC results won't be strong enough.

Another cheap shot
Another slam or two is a pipe dream, he'll be happy to reach another final at this point.

Wimbledon and USO this year were his best shots, and his flaming out at the USO made me lose a lot of faith in his ability to win another slam.

If you agree that Monfils shouldn't be doing these antics, then why are you still finding a way for Roddick to be in the wrong? Then officially you are not agreeing are you?

Ok, so I'm not the biggest Roddick fan. ARREST ME! :shock:

Jeez man talk about trolling, you take all this time to pull up what everyone already knows. Does it really matter if I do or do not like Roddick? Funny how you didn't pull these posts up...

http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=279225


Just appeared on "PTI" on ESPN. Here's some quotes:

On whether he was encouraged or discouraged by Wimbledon:

"Probably both. Discouraged short term, encouraged long term. Obviously I was pretty sad and realized how close I was, but I showed that I can actually play some tennis again, and that was good."

On Roger's "I know how you feel" comment:

"He (Roger) said, 'Andy, I know how you feel, I lost last year', and I said, 'Well that was a first for you' (laughs). I know he kinda knew how I felt, but I'd probably feel a lot better about it if I had already won five"

On the motivation for his changes this season:

"People want some revolutionary kind of answer, but I'm just sitting there November last year, and I'm losing ground to not only Federer and Nadal, but 4 or 5 other guys. I certainly felt that way. And it's OK, are you going to sit here and be content with that, or are you going to explore every avenue as far as changing that. To me the answer seemed pretty obvious."

On keeping perspective:

"After Wimbledon, I see people on the street say to me 'I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry' and I'm just like, no it's ok. Everything's still pretty good, I've always had a good sense of perspective. I'm probably one of the lucky ones and I certainly realize that regardless of that one result"

I'll post a link to the interview as soon as it comes up. :)

We all know Roddick can be rude to chair umpires at times. No need to bring that up in a thread where he's discussing the great season he's had so far.

He's also done tons of work for charity and helps the game of tennis grow here in America. I'm pretty sure you don't know Roddick personally to be calling him a tool, so leave the hate out of this thread.

But yeah, I despise Roddick. Ban me immediately mods. Though it is NOT against the rules to not like players, it IS against the rules to troll against fellow posters off topic. Keep that in mind sillybeaver. ;)

And it wasn't about pulling up what "everyone" knows about Roddick, it was to show you just go in random threads to bash Roddick was the point, not whether people should or should not like Roddick.

I agree with you. Remember his match against Kohlshreiber at the AO?

As a fan of both players, I think it's no big deal and found the whole thing quite funny. Roddick should have been happy to be in the FO fourth round for the first time in his career. But Monfils was utterly outplaying him in this match, and Roddick was a sore loser. Monfils's antics weren't directed at Roddick, he's a natural showman, moreso in front of his home crowd (he's not only a Frenchman but also from Paris). Roddick had no answers in the game and he was frustated. Being himself, his only answer was to whine about everything, which didn't help him anyway. The only thing he was right about, was beating Roddick on clay is nothing to brag about.

No, Monfils antics were clearly ridiculous and beyond border line. Would you be singing the same tune if Nadal was doing this to Federer? No, you wouldn't. Just because it's Roddick on the other side of the net, everyone agrees it was well deserved for some odd reason.

Monfils is disgusting as a sportsman, even the commentators on eurosport where shocked by the way he acted. Roddick should have thrown a 150 mph PDR right in his face!! and I dont even like Roddick, but watching this match made me hate Monfils as the only player on tour..

No, Monfils antics were clearly ridiculous and beyond border line. Would you be singing the same tune if Nadal was doing this to Federer? No, you wouldn't. Just because it's Roddick on the other side of the net, everyone agrees it was well deserved for some odd reason.

I didn't say it was well deserved. But as far as I remember, it wasn't anything to be shocked about either. Monfils made some incredible shots in this match. Monfils antics are what they are. Both players were just being themselves in this match.

Nadal uses antics much more annoying than anything monfils did.

Did you catch nadal vs kiefer at the us open? You would of had to be watching it on the us open stream to understand what im talking about. Referring to his pre coin flip tactics, making keifer and the coin flipper sit at net for 4mins while he aligns his water bottles, then jumps up in keifers face like boxer.

Solderling called him out on his tactics too. Most people only catch the obvious tactics because they dont play competitively.

The home crowd cheer'd monfils for what he did, and boo'd roddick for what he did. US internet fans didnt like it, french paying fans did. Simple as that.

nadal is always late for the coin toss, and always jumps up and down at the net, that is called a ritual; as for monfils of course his home crowd would support him, hes a stupid player but hes still at home

I agree. Monfils' celebrations are pathetic, and in this match they were downright disrespectful. Monfils looks very cocky, and I also think that about Tsonga as well (remember when he said he expects to be ranked #1 by year's end? laughable).

Monfils was beating the day lights out of Roddick, crushing him basically. Monfils hits a pretty good shot on the run, proceeds to incite the crowd, pump them up like it's a football game, etc. etc. Overly celebrating and just being a total jackass. Roddick of course, being Roddick, gets slightly aggravated and responds.



Of course, Roddick was well within control of himself. He could have easily been worse.

I agree with you. Remember his match against Kohlshreiber at the AO?

As a fan of both players, I think it's no big deal and found the whole thing quite funny. Roddick should have been happy to be in the FO fourth round for the first time in his career. But Monfils was utterly outplaying him in this match, and Roddick was a sore loser. Monfils's antics weren't directed at Roddick, he's a natural showman, moreso in front of his home crowd (he's not only a Frenchman but also from Paris). Roddick had no answers in the game and he was frustated. Being himself, his only answer was to whine about everything, which didn't help him anyway. The only thing he was right about, was beating Roddick on clay is nothing to brag about.

Juniors get defaulted for acting like Monfils did on the court that day. His behavior was uncalled for and I'm glad someone finally called him on it.

half of guys are completely biased because you hate roddick and are not making sound arguments. You are completely missing the point. This has nothing to do with how Roddick has acted in the past or for that matter how he was whining on the court in this match because he was getting destroyed. Arod could be the biggest ahole in the world( and probably is) but is has nothing to do with how monfils acted in this match. Everything Monfils did was without a doubt out of line and even though Arod was whining it was completely unjustified. Like one other poster said Roddick should have hit him in the body with a 150mph serve. Arod has been on the tour way longer and accomplished way more then Monfils has and its called having respect for someone you is superior to you.

I think at match point it's fine to celebrate however way you want; but this was in the middle of the match and it was over the top.

Monfils does like to celebrate...but that's not breaking the rules...

It may get onto the nerves of his opponents, just like Djokovic's 20 bounces before a serve does etc...

Completley different. Hewitt doesn't dance on the court, wave his arms, and jump around for an hour trying to get the crowd against his opponent when he's up 6-4 5-2 against a crappy player on the surface their playing on. He does it on big points in tight matches trying to get the momentum his way. What Monfils did was nothing short of a pathetic rich child trying to get his way.

i was posting and eating at same time...:oops:


btw... check this festival lineup...

Wow I didn't expect such a strong response to this thread...

Well I guess we can all agree that some players like to express themselves on the court more than others...

Hewitt and his c'mons + lawnmower move, Stepanek and his worm dance, Rafa with the shuffle etc...

People get carried away in celebrating a point sometimes...but the crowd loves it...so it ain't that bad a thing right?

Monfils does like to celebrate...but that's not breaking the rules...

It may get onto the nerves of his opponents, just like Djokovic's 20 bounces before a serve does etc...

Everyone's got traits that might peeve off someone...

But does that warrant Roddick to direct that rather rude remark at Monfils?

We all know Roddick likes to lash out at umpires...sometimes quite unreasonably so too...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff6_UTPDO9s

For some unknown reason, the tennis fans and officials have repeatedly overlooked your previous tirades at officials...

But giving a smart***** comment coz you are down in a match, coz your opponent has celebrated extravagantly on more than a few points, and coz he walked past smiling whilst you berated the umpire regarding the colour of the sky? Please grow up Andy

Well done my sentiments exactly. Monfils brings some personality maybe annoying to some. But Roddick is frequently an *** and cocky to the umpires and journalists just trying to do their job. I would enjoy Mofils bringing the rain on Roddick.

I'd rather a 'cocky' Monfils than a Roddick with a losers attitude!

Exactly! Right on the mark, Chad! :)

Cant someone link the rule that says its illegal to celebrate and entertain the fans?

Im guessing everyone here was mad when taylor dent won his epic match at the us open too. How dare he celebrate...

Great post, again. So will that be a V8, 10 or 12?! :)

Its legal and the crowd was loving it, sounds like sour grapes.

Monfils isnt there to make roddick happy, he is there to make the fans happy and win the match. Which he did both.

^^^ Lest anyone think that I'm a Monfils fan ... I can't stand that stupid pri*ck!

But justice must prevail and in this incident, Roddick must be told that a pot shouldn't call the kettle black!

Roddick must be bitter that he was getting his arse handed to him properly by Gael:twisted:
Roger would have humiliated his punk *** had they met

say what you want about Monfils but he sure as hell doesn't curse on a tennis unlike that d*ckhead Andy!


Roddick doesn't have the speed;movement nor the return of serve that Monfils has;never has and never will
:twisted:

whenever Roddick loses;no matter the surface it's a good day for tennis:twisted::)

Thats kind of hypocritical and ironic coming from Roddick. As mouthy and arrogant as he has carried himself over the years. He would make it seem like he was some great tennis champion yet at the end of the day hes a one slam wonder..

Maybe Roddick is not good enough to be that cocky?

He's got one thing that Monfils doesn't, a GS title. So, yes, that gives him the right to say that Monfils is not good enough.

With his serve, he doesn't have to. And whether you like it or not, serving is 50% of the game. I guess I'd rather be a d!ckhead than a bonehead like Monfils. That guys is as dumb as a bag of rocks and gets beat by Fed a lot worse than Andy does. I didn't see Monfils taking Fed to 16-14 in the 5th. He was already out of the tournament by then.

The point was not whether or not Roddick is an *** or not. I think it's indisputable that Roddick at times is a big jackass.



However, if Nadal was doing this to Federer, I think even the most die hard Nadal fans would be hard pressed to defend him.

True, but it's not like he lost. He withdrew.

Agreed!

But it must be said that both Roddick & Monfils are losers in their own ways!

I think Roddick was imitating Monfils' celebration here, although I agree it doesn't really prove anything at all.

It just proves Monfils is much more cool about his opponent celebrating a point than Roddick is. Monfils doesn't take it personally contrary to Roddick.
