Guy is having a brilliant start of the season,plays great tennis,but loses 1 match to Matosevic who went to reach the final, in windy conditions in Delray Beach,and suddenly he's in terrible shape? No.
Kubot is not a good matchup for Ivo but I hope he somehow wins,one more reason is that Roddick awaits in R2.And btw Ivo has 10 times better chance to beat Roddick than Kubot,nevermind the H2H because Roddick is not even close the same player as before.
Not from what I saw in Delray Beach. Despite difficult conditions, Ivo was so slow and served worse than usual. Probably tanking but who knows...
And dude, Kubot has crushed Roddick before and still can. Has the perfect nimble, unorthodox, net play game to do so again, just like in Beijing 2009.
