The Hot 50: Andy answers 50 questions from his fans.
I sent one in so I hope to see it answered.
Here are parts 1 and 2:
1 – What was your Halloween costume this year?
I was Goose and my buddy Dillon was Maverick from the movie Top Gun. It was funny because a couple of friends of ours came as Top Gun characters also, but thankfully they were from a different scene. I guess I was very unoriginal.
2 – If you could be a comic book superhero, what power would you want?
I would want to be able to be invisible.
3 – Do you wear contact lenses when you play?
4 – How often to you check out Ar.com?
Daily … watch out!!!! Be nice!!
5 – Where are you going to put your Davis Cup Trophy?
I have a long hallway in my house and the US Open trophy is at one end….I think it’s gonna go at the other end. That, or in my bed so I can sleep next to it!
6 – Do you consider yourself romantic?
I was never that romantic, but I am getting better.
7 – What is your least favorite work out activity?
Stationary bike workouts… they are so boring. I like being outside when I work out.
8 – Have you ever played ‘spin the bottle’?
Yes I have…I was not a very good spinner ha ha ha.
9 – What question annoys you the most in interviews?
Questions that insinuate that it is just very easy to play tennis and everything is easily fixed…. the old saying goes if it was easy everyone would do it.
10 – Do you still bit your nails?
11 – What would be your go to song on Karaoke night?
Maybe bust a move by young mc…I can’t sing a lick so I would not subject anyone to it ha ha.
12 – Who is better at scrabble? You, John or Doug?
I am the best scrabble player in all the land…. or at least between John, Doug, and myself.
13 – How many No Compromise wristbands do you go through in a year?
Only a couple….mine never break… I think the only time I switched it last year was when we went to the red, white, and blue band.
14 – What is it like being “Uncle Andy?”
It’s awesome!! They don’t really know what I do, so it is so innocent when I get to spend time with them…. they are growing up so fast… it was great to spend time with them over the holidays.
15 – Would you captain a future Davis Cup Team if you were asked to?
Yes, and I hope to be asked.
16 – Do you ever have a day when you do absolutely nothing?
Nope…I am not good with not having anything to do. Luckily I am always busy with business stuff or my foundation. Even when I have days off of tennis, I like to stay busy.
17 – What is the ring-tone on your phone?
Right now it’s whatever the stock ring is on the i-phone. It’s usually on silent. I text more than I talk.
18 – Any plans to shave your head this year?
No plans, but who knows… I don’t think I have ever known I was going to shave it the day before I did it.
19 – Do you ever take out your US Open trophy and give it a hug?
Nope. It has not moved in four years. I need a new one to hug
get working on that Andy..
20 – What is something we would be surprised to know about you?I am up by 6:30 am everyday… I absolutely love getting up in the morning.
It’s become my favorite time of the day. For some reason I guess I come off as the sleeping in type
21 – What did you do for New Year’s Eve? Any resolutions for 2008?
It was actually the first time that I made it to midnight in the last three or four years. I was in Hawaii training from the 26th on. It was really nice. Our great friends KC and Toni set up a great little dinner and we had a dj…. there was only about fifteen of us there but it was full of a lot of laughs and it was good fun… I slept in til 8 the next morning.
