Question RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

An epic 3rd round match between two qualifiers who both seem to be playing very well. Who do you think will win? I think it's very 50/50 and unpredictable match. Kubot has been in 4th round of a slam before but he's lost 7 matches in a row against left-handers.

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Re: RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

Falla destroyed Poto and on that form I think he will win.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Re: RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

I have nothing against Kubot or Falla, both defieted top 20 opponents here, but overall is really unfair that one of this two will be in 4R and Delpo won´t.

What a showdown between two heavyweights.

Re: RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

If you want fairness you should take the ranking and put top seed as the winner, #2 seed as the runner up and so on. I think Lalo could have advanced very far, but he jumped on Fed.

As for the match, the only thing I can predict is choking leading positions.

Re: RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

I don't know, great opportunity for both players to get the best Grand Slam result. 50/50 match.

Re: RG R3: Falla vs. Kubot

in Russian is davai just a different accent
they also shout "molodyets" after good points (forgive me spelling, i don't have cyrillic keyboard)

IMO "dawaj" in Polish sounds unnatural to get some positive vibes, it's poor attempt to take a word from similar language instead of inventing something more proper to your own. I've been playing tennis for 20 years and never heard "dawaj" on tennis court

I scream "come on!" or "tak jest!"
