also, 2 dfs while he was serving for the match, 2dfs in the tb, and no first serves in the tb

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Self destruction from Kubot, he should have won it.

But I'm glad Troicki didn't give up, it would have cost me mad money -_-

Luke. Oh well, QF is still nice. I hope he has a good draw at the AO.

Troicki's tactics with using many dropshots paid off at the end. Q-bot had cramps at 6:5 and lost 11 out of 12 last points. It's rather sad that he lost two winning matches (Wawrinka in Shanghai) in short period of time

Massive choke... he stopped S&Ving when it got tight

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

So Troicki is luckboxing through this tournament. Will be toast in SF though...

If Kubot can start keeping his head together in tight situations he has a potential to be a top 20 player.

Yay, Viktor!!!
I had to leave the house at 5:2 for Kubot in the third set, can't believe this.
I am sorry for Kubot, but what happened?

Kubot played awful game at *5:3, Troicki played good games at 2:5, 4:5 and 5:6. In the tie-break Kubot showed absolutely nothing.

Re: Doha 1/4: Troicki def Kubot 4-6 6-4 7-6(1)

What a big choke

Kubot was two points away from victory twice: at 5:3 (40:40) and 5:4 (30:30). Awful self destruction from his side
