WTF?! Guy is ranked 321 in the world, 23 years old so not even a young prospect. Even a bad HC-player like DGT should win against him/ This is terrible...

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new GOAT.

I like DGT, but today it looked like he didn't once pick up a racket during the offseason

Congrats to Sergei on the win

Re: Doha R1: Bubka def. DGT 6-0 6-3

Bubka did what he had to do. DGT was hilariously shit. Every time he tried something other than a forehand blast, the results were hilarious. Drop shots and drop volleys bouncing before the net, backhand slices never making it more than six inches off the ground. Too big.

Bubka has a pretty big game. His average serve speed was over 200kmph and he hit the lines near the end when a player of his ranking could have choked.

Anyone know why he got a WC? He looks a better player than his ranking suggests anyway

Excellent serving stats for Bubka.74% 1st serves with 81% pts won behind it. Service action reminds me a little of Isner with less of a knee bend.

Bubka's serve put him in pole position. Surely going to vault up the rankings. Quite a jump in performance.

I'll stop now.
