    Dear Linz, I enjoyed this so much. Thank you! I don’t know how we can replace Andy. He’s irreplaceable. I loved the way he listened to press questions – his inner b.s.-detector always cocked and ready. One fav memory is not Aussie Open-based but during Wimby 09, before he beat Murray. A reporter asked if for some reason (I forget why) he hadn’t tried quite as hard for something – Roddick came back immediately: “No. I have a lot of faults but one of them isn’t not trying hard.” Boom.

    Lindsay, I’m a little older than you *cough* so yes, I have had to deal with my favorite player retiring. His name was Pete Sampras, and for years and years I really had a hard time feeling the same way about tennis as I did when he was playing, so I absolutely understand what you’re going through now. I mean, I still loved tennis, but it just wasn’t the same.

    And then along came this dude named Novak Djokovic, and I found myself living and dying with someone’s matches again. Somehow it really does make a difference, you’re absolutely right.

    All this is to say, hang in there. I’ll bet another player will come along and steal your heart the way Andy did. It happened to me, it could happen to you, too. 😉

    PS, thanks for this little retrospective. I always enjoyed Andy’s unique personality and quirks and foibles. 🙂
