I was away and couldn't watch the match. Now I'm happy that I didn't. Simply horrible. I hope he doesn't play more small tourneys, especially exos, for a while. First some rest, then learn to focus on the big tourneys. Even though he didn't look good before AO, I didn't expect this disaster...
Well, he did lose to Ginepri in the first round at Chennai. He should have had about a month for his shoulder and elbow to have healed once he starts playing again. His twitter is reporting he is skiing in Austria right now, so he must be in pretty decent shape.
So articles are now coming out on his confirmation of playing in Rotterdam next week. Rosie, who will be making the trip, will hopefully have some great photos and stories of Robin's matches (note I'm using the plural
). I am very much looking forward to her reports!
By the way, Orka_n, I love your avatar and I've got some pics from the 2009 French Open I'm going to put up. I don't think many people would gather this, but your Avi pic is from Robin's third round win over David Ferrer. I think most people probably assume it was from the Nadal match. Some pics of him celebrating the win over Ferru below:
