Indian Wells QFR: Golubev def. Phau 6-4 6-4



Bjorn had two break points to break back when Andrey was serving for the match. So very disappointing. There was a very long game at 2-2 in the second set where Bjorn staved off four break points, before finally succumbing. I'm really disappointed, I didn't think Bjorn would lose to Golubev, I thought his speed would be too much, but I guess Andrey's power ended up winning. Bjorn could have been top 100 this week so this is deflating.

Andrey is playing quite a bit better and with a bit more control these days, although that isn't saying much considering how bad he was in 2011. These courts should suit his game perfectly if he can control the ball in the high-elevation, so he could be very dangerous in the MD.

Beating Djokovic looks to have bolstered Golubev's confidence to no end.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Golubev has talent, you can't deny it.

Bjorn would have played De Voest had he won this. Such a waste.

Golubev is few levels above Phau in terms of talent anyway.
Good for the game

He's too irrelevant to have haters He's a mug who beat an even bigger mug and will lose comfortably to the first half decent opponent he faces.
