Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing

I'm torn since I love both Ryan and JB. James seems to have no confidence these days and plays like crap lately. Ryan plays like crap most of the time in his early round matches, so this is probably going to be one crappy match .

Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing + Olympics

Hopefully, all these rough draws will toughen him up in the long run.

If I'm not mistaken, this is Ryan's 2nd meeting with Blake. Their last meeting was when Ryan was 15 y.o. back in 2008 (Houston). Time sure flies . Maybe he will be motivated since he admired and grew up watching Blake. IMO, this match is probably gonna be on Blake's racket. As bad as he has been this year, an aging Blake is still the more aggressive of the two . The match will likely depend on Blake's winners-ues ratio, it will either be a lot of bashing winners or a lot of bashing errors (there is no plan B for James). I hope Ryan is not too passive.

Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing + Olympics

Got screwed by two netcord shots in the crucial moments. Well, we all know "luck" isn't exactly what Ryan Harrison is known for...

Top 50 was fun I hope, now let's get some ACTUAL BIG WINS and get back in there where we belong!

Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing + Olympics

Blake was one of my favorite players. Apparently Ryan has a *very* long way to become a top player. An ex-top player in his 32 far away from his best condition can make Ryan look so vulnerable & pointless. That really sucks. Hope he can learn something from Blake tonight.

Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing + Olympics

Ryan's game has really taken a step back, no point construction whatever so. Last night, I don't remember him even attempting a serve & volley. He has gone from a being a counterpuncher to a pusher. What happened to the kid with an all-court game that I fell in love with? Maybe he needs a new coach or go back to the old ones.

Re: US Summer Hardcourt Swing + Olympics

Ryan and Matt are in the doubles final and will play Malisse/Russell for the title. Good luck.
