Johannesburg QF: S. Robert b. D. Brown 7-6 (5) 6-3

Robert in ATP SF at almost 30 Loses in AO R2 from 2:0 up in sets, but bounces back quickly here, already 100th in the world, certainly higher after this week's weeks performance. Another late blooming Frenchie after Gicquel.

Brown is an awesome shotmaker. Wasted a lot break points late in the match. Imagine those thread titles: "Wimbledon R1: Brown smokes Pot 6:1 6:2 6:1". Cannot wait.

Is this an ATP tournament?

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Saw the TB and a few games and it was absolutely awful. Brown hit every return out and Robert making tons of UEs as well. Robert will be finger food for Ferrer if he plays like this.

While this quarter final line-up does reflect the poor field of Johannesburg, these are both players that had a great 2009 and are continuing their form. They deserve some credit, even from posters like yourself.

Only 39% 1st serves and tons of missed bps.

Re: Johannesburg QF: S. Robert b. D. Brown 7-6 (5) 6-3

The first two rounds where good, this was pure shit fro Brown! Robert is a rare type of player, the guy has no weapon, he is average in everything, and his 2nd serve is pure WTA style. Dustin ha the wrong attitude from the start, kamikaze serve and volley on 2nd serves, runs to the net on awful fh chips, Brown is the better player, but just stupid decisions at important moments.....

Ferrer will demolish Robert....

Alla ricerca di un piccolo grande amore....

Two gyes in unfamiliar territory, Robert was playing futures at this time last year. Brown didn't play well today, but I've seen him a few times on the challenger circuit over the last 6 months and can be really flashy and enjoyable to watch.

You're way too harsh.
