全仏 2回戦敗退
2005年 05月 27日
アカスソに 6-3 6-4 4-6 3-6 6-8で敗退。

2セットアップで負けた~
いくつかチャンスあったのに締め切れずモノにできませんでした。
最近こういうパターン多いです(涙)

言いたいことは沢山ありますが、1つ言いたいのは、今後得意としているグラスやハードでもこのような状況だったらまじで心理カウンセラーつけたほうがいいのでは?と思います。MTFのアンディフォーラムで何度かこういう話が出ていました。

最近元気ないアンディをずっと見ているのでファンとしては辛い。
だから元気なアンディよ戻ってきておくれー。

とにかくお疲れさま。

全仏 一回戦勝利
2005年 05月 26日
アンディはフランス地元若手選手Tsongaに6-3 6-2 6-4のストレート勝ちしました。
おめでとう。

テレビで試合を見ました。正直そんなに面白くない試合でしたが、ここぞというときは締めていたので比較的安定したプレーをしてました。また相手のTsongaが結構ミスが多かったことにも助けられたと思います。いつもより違って見えたのは急いでポイントを取りに行かなくなったこと。クレーでの試合運びを意識しているのかな。因みにTsongaは2003年にジュニアの全米オープンで優勝しているんですよね。同じフランス若手ガスケやモンフィスと共に活躍が期待されているようです。今のところクレーよりも速いサーフェイスのほうがどちらかというと得意の様子。またパワーはあるんですがフットワークを改善する必要がありそう(って偉そうに言える立場じゃありませんが)

2セット目中盤あたりでアンディコケてました。お尻からどってん。でもその後立ち直して結局ポイントは取ったようです。しかしよくコケるな。。。試合はコケないでくれよアンディ。

本日も気になったアンディのウェア。最初は以下の写真で登場。これは青なのかな?日本ではあんまり見ない色な気がします。でもシンプルでけっこう良いと思います。

アガシ戦
これは見ていて切ない試合でした。3セット目のタイブレから見ました。途中から腰の痛みが出てきたようでタイブレ取った後の4,5セット目は全然良いプレーが見られませんでした。それでもトレーナーを呼ばず自分で持ってきていた痛み止めを飲んだくらいで最後まで棄権せずに試合をしていたのはアガシとしての意地もあったのでしょう。芝のシーズンまでには調子良くなってくれると嬉しいです。

ジェームズ・ブレーク
ESPNのスタジオに登場してました。昨年は大変な年(大怪我とお父様が他界されたこと)だったと聞きました。怪我により復帰も危ぶまれていただけに復活してくれて嬉しいです。今大会では確か予選から出場しているようです。因みに昨日本戦一回戦で見事ストレート勝利をしました。おめでとう。Welcome back, James!

ギルバートさん
ESPNは今年も全仏の試合を沢山放送してくれて嬉しい。普段はアメリカ人中心での放送が多いのですが、皮肉なことにアメリカ人のクレーでの活躍が少ないという現状に助けられ他国選手の試合もけっこう放送してくれています。おっと前置き長くなりましたが、今回もギルバートさんがまた解説者として出ています。そういえばギルバートさん、正式にゴロビンちゃんのコーチをすることになったようです。いちよう短期間ということなのですが。

アンディとフランス
2005年 05月 21日
アンディは現在Reebokとシューズ契約をしていますが、今度はバボラ(Babolat)と契約を結ぶことが公式に発表されました。
記事リンク:http://www.babolat.com/upload/BabolatNewsrelease.doc

それでふと思ったのがアンディとフランスとの関わり。何気に多いのです。

・最初のコーチ : タリック・ベナビレスさん。フランス人。
・ラケット : バボラ。フランスのラケットメーカー。17歳から使用。
・靴 : バボラ。来年始めより契約開始予定。
・ウェア : ラコステ。フランスのブランド会社。今年5月から契約開始。

最近アメリカに住んで思うことは、世界的にアメリカの評判が良くないこと。多分「俺たちがNo.1なのさ!」という世界征服しているような態度が気に食わないのでしょうかね。特にフランスは国際政治面ではアメリカと対極することが多いと思います。けっこう「アンチアメリカ」的な雰囲気がフランスにはありそうな気がするのです。英語を話せても話そうとしないというのも聞いたことがあります。でも実際はどうなんでしょう。

そういう「アンチアメリカズム」な噂を聞いているので、アメリカ人であるアンディが来週から始まる全仏でフランスのメーカーものを身にまとっているアンディにフランスの観客がどんな反応をするのか興味があります。まあ、実際はあんまり反応は変わらないかもしれかせん。というのも全仏ドローが発表されましたが、アンディは初戦の対戦相手はフランス人若手選手(Jo-Wilfried Tsonga)となりました。初戦で地元フランス人と当たるので、どちらかというと地元でしかもUnder-dog「勝ち目のない挑戦者」と思われるTsongaへの応援のほうが強いかもしれません。昨年は2回戦で同じようなフランス地元若手、しかもランキング100何位台のミュティス選手に敗退しました。殆どの人がアンディ有利と思っていた試合でした。

結局まわりからの応援(=愛されている)という雰囲気がなく勝ち目がないとあっさりと引いてしまう傾向にあるアンディ、トップでやってゆくには良い意味でのクールさ(周りに変に影響されない)が今後必要かもしれません。

本日のエキジビ決勝結果
今週エキジビに参加しているアンディ。決勝の対戦相手はナルバンディアンとでした。結果は4-6 4-6のストレートで負けました。ヨーロッパではこのエキジビが放送されていたようで、見た人によるとナルバンディアンのストロークがかなり調子良く、アンディは終始振り回されていたとのこと(笑)アンディのほうは武器であるサーブが全然調子悪かった(もしくはナルのリターンが良かった)のですが、ネットプレーは良かったようです。この調子であればナルはまた全仏で活躍できるかもしれませんね。エキジビと言えどもお互いある程度本気だったようですがジョークもあったり笑ったりと良い雰囲気だったそうです。03年の全米セミファイナルでこの2人が対戦してからあんまり良くない雰囲気があっただけにこれを聞いてちょっと安心。

可愛いのか変なのか微妙・・・ 試合で被るのかな? 普段おしゃれとして被るのなら良いと思うけれど。昨年は因みに牛柄のような帽子を被っていました↓これも微妙だったなぁ。
b0070666_3313966.jpg

さてもうすぐ全仏が始まりますがアンディは今週から現地入りして練習しているようです。先日はヘンマンと練習試合をしていました。今日はエキジビに参加していてフランスの新星モンフィスと試合をして勝ちました。スコアは確か6-3 7-6です。次は決勝でナルバンディアンと対戦のようです。エキジビですが全仏に向けての良い準備となればいいです。

アンディはMacユーザー
2005年 05月 20日
b0070666_383757.jpg
アンディはMac使っているようです。私は今はPC(Windows)を使用していますが、最初はMacintoshのユーザーでした。なのでアンディがMacを使用しているのは何気に嬉しいのです。

むか~しの話ですが、Winが出る前はMacのビジュアル的に使いやすいスクリーンはとても画期的だったようで、その時MacかWinか?という闘争のような記事もパソコン雑誌に載っていました。結局Winの宣伝がうまかったのと、いろんなパソコンに互換性を持たせたことによってWin市場のほうが圧倒的に大きくなってしまいましたが。特に一般の企業は殆どがWinを導入しているのではないかと思います。それでもMacのあの遊び心をくすぐるような画面のデザインは魅力的で好きです。

Serving notice
Tennis aside, Roddick comes up aces off court, too

写真リンクはこちら

記事全文
By Stan Grossfeld, Globe Staff | May 12, 2005

Second in a series on athletes whose commercial appeal extends beyond their accomplishments on the field.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Andy Roddick sits at an outside table at Austin Java sipping organic coffee, picking occasionally at his cheese omelette, home fries, and beans, but mostly playing poker on a wireless connection on his Mac. He's wearing ripped jeans and a T-shirt, and he's beating nine other people in cyberspace who have no idea they are playing the No. 1-ranked American tennis player and universal heartthrob.

Nobody bothers him for autographs, even though he has just returned home from Houston, where he won his third United States Men's Clay Court Championship in five years. ''Austin is very territorial," said Roddick. ''It's a football town. It's like an unwritten rule to leave people be. It's awesome."

Not so in Houston. "41's wife is kind of friendly with me," he said, referring to former first lady Barbara Bush. "She came up to me and said, 'I'm cutting to the chase. What's going on with your love life?' I said, 'I got no game.' "

Roddick does have game -- at least on the court. His 155-mile-per-hour serve in last September's Davis Cup semifinals is the fastest ever recorded. In 2003, he won the US Open and finished the year as the No. 1 player in the world. But after losing his top ranking to Roger Federer and slipping to No. 3, the 6-foot-2-inch Roddick replaced his coach, Tarik Benhabiles, and with the help of a personal trainer, got into the best shape of his life. His chest is ripped and he has lost 5 pounds.

Roddick, 22, spends his spare time practicing, working out, doing track work or playing online poker. He seems to prefer the poker. "It's just less stressful than tennis tournaments 'cause I can do it for fun. He's wagered $1 to win $50. "I've won two tournaments," he said proudly. "It's huge money."

Gone are the days of the paparazzi chasing him and his former girlfriend, actress Mandy Moore, whom he split with last year. He currently doesn't have a girlfriend, even though People magazine named him its Sexiest Athlete in 2003. He has hosted ''Saturday Night Live," appeared on Letterman, hung out at the Playboy Mansion, and had his clothes ripped by a[idoring female fans. But for now, love has become just a tennis term to him again.

"Are you still living like a monk on weekends?" asks a 20-something girl blending a smoothie for him behind the counter. "Yeah," he says with a shrug. Then it's back to poker. "This is a huge time killer for me."

His breakfast meeting with his coach, friends, and family is lighthearted. Roddick, whose footwork on the court has been labeled ''awkward," marvels at a friend's toddler learning to walk. ''I'm convinced being 2 is like walking around with eight beers in you," he said. Roddick sings the praises of buddy Dave Matthews's new album. He has 2,320 songs downloaded (an "eclectic mix"). Everything from Matthews, who was the musical guest when he hosted ''SNL," to an extensive Adam Sandler comedy collection, to Credence, to Stevie Wonder, to Eminem, to Sinatra, and his buddy, Elton John.

On April 26, Sir Elton -- Roddick's former celebrity doubles partner -- did a private show for 400 high rollers for the Andy Roddick Foundation "Champions for Charity Gala." The foundation, run by Roddick's mother, Blanche, has raised more than $2.2 million to provide resources and funds to aid at-risk children in South Florida and Texas.

The event raised $800,000, more than doubling last year's numbers, which more than doubled the year before. Elton closes out the show by getting somebody to pay $19,000 for him to sing ''Candle in the Wind" and $50,000 more to have dinner with him. "I'm sitting there and Elton John, the biggest rock star since I've been alive, since my parents were alive, is performing for my foundation. I couldn't believe it."

Roddick's date for the evening? A cardboard cutout of comedian Ellen DeGeneres. "I love her," he said. ''I think she's great."

Tennis love, for now
So what's with this heartthrob stuff? "My quote whenever I'm asked about that, and it rings so true, is the more tennis matches I win, the better looking I get to other people," he said. ''That pretty much sums it up. When I was a sophomore in high school, I was about 5-2. I was short and I was kind of just everyone's buddy. I guess it just started when I started playing. I don't really have much of an explanation for it. I can't pinpoint why. It's just pop culture."

Any truth to the rumors he's dated Siberian tennis beauty Maria Sharapova?

"Zero. There's zero point zero, zero truth to that," he insisted. ''I don't even have her phone number. I respect what she does and she's obviously a very pretty girl, but we've never even hung out outside of a pro-am tennis event."

Roddick is now on his third coach in two years. He fired Benhabiles after a first-round loss in the 2003 French Open. Then his career took off when he hired Brad Gilbert, Andre Agassi's former coach. Gilbert led him to the No. 1 ranking and a winning percentage of .823 and nine titles. But when Roddick failed to win a Grand Slam event in 2004, he unceremoniously sacked Gilbert, who was surprised.

"On the parting with Andy, being fired never really ends in a completely amicable way," Gilbert said in an e-mail. "It happens, I've moved on, that's about it."

Roddick is still uncomfortable talking about it. "A lot of it was, you know, personal stuff under the radar," he said. ''I mean, I think Brad's a great coach and a great tennis mind, but I feel like I wasn't putting in the work I needed to put in. I was surprised that I was [ranked No.] 2 last year. I don't know if I worked that hard last year. I didn't feel like I was being pushed."

He hired Dean Goldfine, an assistant on the US Davis Cup and Olympic teams. Roddick is pumped. "He's out here doing all our drills with us," he said. ''He's into it. He's making sure we're prepared to go to Europe. Little things. He scouts tirelessly, skips dinner to go to matches. He puts in a lot of work, so you really feel it's a team effort."

Roddick's personal trainer, Doug Spreen, says he ''is as motivated as any athlete I've ever seen. He's willing to put in the blood, sweat, and tears."

Perhaps that's because of the phenomenal success of Federer. Roddick vs. Federer was supposed to be the tennis equivalent of Red Sox-Yankees, but that hasn't happened. He has only beaten Federer once in eight tries. "He has no weakness," said Roddick. ''He's a great athlete, he's a natural tennis player. He was just born to play the game. On top of that he's pretty mentally tough. I told Roger, 'I'd love to hate you, but you're such a nice guy.' "

Carrying the US torch
Some say American men's tennis is dead; the top 10 is now dominated by foreigners. Roddick disagrees.

"I haven't played in front of a small crowd in the last three years," he said. ''I think the main difference in American men's tennis now and 10 years ago is tennis is an individual, star-driven sport. You can't pull for your local team. Ten years ago, you had four or five top players to choose from. Before that it was [Jimmy] Connors, [John] McEnroe, and [Vitas] Gerulaitis. You had a lot of players you could kind of cheer for, therefore the interest was more. Now it's kind of like with Andre. You don't know when it's going to be his last time out there."

Roddick says he tries not to let the pressure bother him. "It's just the way it is. I've been dealing with it for five years now. Of course I feel it sometimes. We have the richest tradition of tennis of any country by far and now it's kind of on me . . . it's squarely on my shoulders. I feel that, but I also embrace that."

He also had to overcome jealousy over too much, too soon.

"There was a little animosity because I got a little bit more attention than I deserved early on in my career and I realize that," Roddick said. ''I was 18, 19 and hadn't accomplished nearly as much as the other people. People were pushing me to be an American star because there was a void that needed to be filled."

Roddick, who has earned more than a half-million dollars this year, says he makes more money on endorsements. Recently, he was dropped by Reebok, but he immediately signed a five-year deal with Lacoste, which the Austin Business Journal said would pay Roddick $5 million annually. Others should be so lucky. "It stinks in tennis because there are guys who are [ranked] 30 or 40 in the world and they're making $300,000 in prize money, and then they have to pay for them and a coach to travel around the world for a year," Roddick said. ''It's not like golf, where you can just win a tournament."

No one questions Roddick's competitiveness.

"He'll compete at anything, any time, anywhere," said boyhood friend Neal Bobba, now an investment banker in New York City. "He was cocky when he was young. He was extremely confident but always admirable. He hasn't changed. Success hasn't gotten to his head. I don't think the people around him would let that happen."

Words of wisdom
Roddick credits Agassi for the inspiration to start his foundation.

Roddick first played Agassi when he was in high school in South Florida. "He was No. 1 at the time," Roddick said. ''He killed me. It was my second pro event, my mom was a teacher, she made me go to school the next day."

The two became friends. "I was on a plane flight with Agassi and I said, 'Is there anything you regret?' I thought he was going to say, 'Yeah, I got out of shape and slipped from No. 1 in the world to 140.' He didn't say that. He said he regretted that he didn't start his foundation soon enough."

Roddick will have no such regret, and he's already seen the benefits of his efforts. "Probably the kid that touched me the most was Garrett Starr," he said. ''My mom got a call from a concerned mother. Her son had tons of tumors and was cancer ridden. He was not even 2 years old yet."

The mother said the hospital "pretty much told her to make sure he's happy while he's dying. She called to basically say we can't find a hospital here in Wisconsin to take our kid to because they think he's such a lost cause."

Roddick used his tennis connections. He called St. Jude's Hospital, which sponsors the tournament in Memphis. ''All we asked for is to get the kid in and get an opinion," he said. "We were able to get him in."

Starr underwent treatments and responded well. Roddick offered to send a plane for him to attend his foundation dinner for children in South Florida last December. ''They said, 'No, we just don't think he's going to make it right now.' I said 'OK, I understand, obviously.' Then I was in the middle of making my speech, and all of a sudden I see my mom creep in with a little kid. It was the first time I had seen him walk, and I went head to head with him, and I just lost it.

''To hear the horror stories of what the kid was going through the first year and now all of a sudden he's walking. He had his fourth birthday last month and was running around cancer free. That was the coolest personal moment for me from my work so far."

TENNISLIFE magazine
Q (Interviewer)
A (Blanche Roddick)

Q- You have three boys, tell me a little bit about them.
A- Lawerence is 15 years older and john is six years older than Andy. They are all spread out. I loved it that way.

Q-John also played tennis. Was there competition between them?
A- No. It was good because there was so much age difference. When Andy was nine, John was with the national team playing all over the world.

Q-What was the most challenging thing about having two boys playing tennis?
A- We tried to keep comparison out of it. We were constantly asked: Is Andy better tan john was at this age? We really never answered it. Andy played almost a year in Florida before andy knew he was the brother of John Roddick, who was on the national team.

Q- Are there any special stories about the brothers?
A- Lawerence is a spring board diver, so when Andy was two, Lawerence was competing nationally in a spring board competition. Andy hasn't seen him for awhile because Lawerence was in an aquatics program in CA. Andy was in the pool and Lawerence jumped in to play with him. He splashed Andy and Andy said "Don't mess with Andy!" Lawerence remembers that to this day- "Don't mess with Andy!" One thing the three boys did together was play ping pong. Whenever they were together, they would be outside playing on the ping pong table. would find paddles in the pool and on the roof. They ran out of balls because they smashed them. Thats one thing that anyone who visited the house would remember the battles on the ping pong table.

Q- Andy wrote a book about tennis when he was a kid, tell me about that.
A- It was amazing. He was in 2nd grade and wrote about the top 10 players. He wrote a little blurb about each of them. His teacher would bind them and put them in the library. I have the original copy of the tennis book. I think that Andy checked his own book out of his schol twice.

Q- When he hit a spell where he wasn't winning juniors, how was that to deal with?
A- When he was 12, he never lost a match. My husband and I would actually go to the courts and hope that he would lost because we didn't want that pressure of always winning on him. Everyone expected him to win. He would win the first set and than in his head he'd keep saying "I can't lose, I can't lose" Well, he would freeze and lose. One day he said "Mom, I have it figured out. I don't have to play for anyone, I just have to play for myself." Than it was off his shoulders. He was 14.

Q- I know in my home that there is a lot going on. Theres school, tenis lessons and tournaments on the weekend. How did you juggle all of that?
A- Theres one rule that I think was very important. No matter how hectic the schedule, the evening meal was with everybody. No television. No tennis talk. They would talk about school, activities, friends, whatever. That was always a rule.

Q- Is it true that Andy was once clock-watching while he played a tournament so that he could get to his senior prom?
A- Yes. It was prom day and he was the last match on. So for him to make prom, he had to walk off the match. We told him it was fine.

Q- Are there any moments that make you proud?
A- (Mrs.Roddick than starts talking about 3 little boys Andy's visited that were sick and she says..) "When he reaches out, its so much more than tennis. Through tennis he reaches out to people, but its so much more than that."

ハンブルグ 初戦敗退
2005年 05月 10日
マスー相手に6-7 6-4 5-7で敗退。

・・・

今年のアンディのクレーでの試合を見ている人(MTFのアンディフォーラムの人)曰く、クレーでの技術は上達している(動きが良くなっているのとショットの幅が多くなってきている)いるようですが、それを必要としたときにうまく活用できてないように見えるそうです。また今後トップをキープするために今年はもっとプレイに多彩性を持たせようとしている段階なのでショットの正しい選択が上手く出来ていないのかもとも言ってました。今年は修行期間なのかなぁ。

技術は上達しているようなのですが、ここぞという時に勝つことが出来ない最近のアンディ。やはりメンタルに問題ありなのかもしれません。トップをキープすることでプレッシャーがかかっているのかな?それならフェデラーなんかもっとプレッシャーかかっているのに。うーん。よく分かりません。個人的にアンディ=クレーは苦手とレッテルを貼るのは、彼が引退するまでクレーでの成績が悪かったら付けたいのでもうちょっと様子を見てみます。

この今のメンタルブロックの壁を越えて自分のショットにも自信がつき始めたら良くなるのかな。

全仏。期待したいけれど・・・ とにかく全力尽くしてくれればいいけれど、最初は大きくリードしていて最終セットでコケるという試合はもう見たくないなぁ。

なんか悲観的でしたね。すみません。

とにかくアンディが自分自身にプレッシャーかけず、もうちょっと楽しく試合が出来ますように。

まあいろいろ
2005年 05月 08日
グガとグミー
ブログ巡りしていたら、岩佐徹さんのブログでグガが現カナスのコーチグミーと組むという情報を見つけました。実は私はグミーの隠れファンでもあります。そして昨年からグガの隠れファンでもある私としてはこの組み合わせが嬉しくってついここに記述したわけであります。グミー情報はこちら(ATPより)。


アンディが観客に握手した(と思われる写真)

ローマ大会コスタ戦でカナスのサーブを取りきれず観客席のほうまで行ってしまい観客と握手したというエピソードをアンディの公式ページで現地レポートしていたのですが、その時のものと思われる写真を発見。


全仏でのアンディのウェアは?
期待していたラコステのウェア、シンプルで悪くはないのですが、どうしても私としては地味でつまんないんですよねぇ。その逆に昨年の全米時のNY地下鉄地図模様のウェアはちょっと強烈でした・・・ でもラコステはフランスの会社だから全仏のようなグランドスラムでは何か仕掛けてくれそうな気がするのですがどうかなぁ。
どっかのフォーラムでラコステのアメリカ市場進出はけっこう意欲的なのでは、とコメントしている人がいました。もしそうであれば、アンディのようなアメリカのスポーツ選手を利用して売り込むような気がします。
ということで勝手な予想として全米ではNY地下鉄だったから今度はパリの地下鉄地図をデザインする?あ、そしたらまた強烈ウェアになっちゃうか(苦笑)それかエッフェル塔とかパリの名物関係をデザインしたら面白そうだけれど一歩間違えるとはちゃめちゃになりそうだなぁ。
