Nice try Ryan

I hope he wont be a US Challenger player for the rest of his career like some of his buddies.

Excellent win for Roko. It's only his third singles MD win in a GS event (also Wimbledon '06 and '08).

With it, he'll move to a new career-high rank of around 90.

In the 2nd round he plays Nishikori (#126). It'll be a tough match but Roko can't complain. You won't often find a lower-ranked player in the 2nd round of a major. In any event, it's better than having to play Monaco (#29 seed), who lost to Nishikori today.

This is a good chance for Roko to reach the 3rd round of a major for the first time in his career. Go for it, Roko, and good luck!

I was at this match. Ryan can really light it up, but is terribly inconsistent. It seemed like every single one of his shots painted the lines in the 3rd set. Roko stepped up his defense early in the 4th set and just shut him down, though. Ryan could easily make it past the challenger circuit if he can get his head together.

I watched him play doubles at a challenger in April with Delic. He was good at times but I can honestly say he lost that match. I mean, their opponents were LSU students. Guys who had never played a pro match. And Ryan just couldn't keep the ball in plau. He gets so angry on court though. He really needs to control his temper. I was going to ask him for an autograph but I was terrified of what he might do with the racquet in his hand.

Yea he does have a temper. After losing the first set he hit a ball into a nearby court, which he got a warning for. They could've been playing over there for all we know, but we couldn't see. He threw/smashed his racquet after getting broken to go down 6-5 in the 2nd. The umpire gave him a point penalty, which was a point he could've used since he took the game to deuce . I thought he was really fun to watch in that 3rd set since he was hitting some great shots off both wings and really making Karanusic run around (he was really painting the lines). It's a shame he's so inconsistent.

I've watched this kid play. He's got talent, but he makes Blake, Berdych and Safin look like rock solid players.

I totally agree. The bad thing is, I was saying the exact same thing a year ago and nothing has changed.
