Roland Garros R2: Kubot def. [Q] Serra 7-6(0) 6-2 7-6(4)

Florent probably would have won this match had he actually played a good match. Very disappointing performance, served for the third set, had all kinds of openings in the first set, had the break in the second set and led 3-0 in the final tiebreak. Just couldn't consistently maintain a decent level and got torched off second serves and Kubot destroyed him with dropshots.

Kubot was decent, but beatable. Florent failed to capitalize. Bad result for the tournament.

Never in doubt, the player with actually ability won and didn't need a retirement to get to the 2nd round.

Que sera Serra.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Ousted two mugs in back-to-back matches with isosceles scorelines:

K.Beck 7-5 6-2 7-5
Serra 7-6 6-2 7-6

Get real, AJ. You didn't even see the match. Serra outplayed Kubot for extended periods but then Kubot got in zones and took over. If Serra lacks ability, what does that make this Kubot dude, who was seriously tested by a mug?

unfortunately he's got a shot at a 4th round because david and arnaud have played their way into a second straight 5th set and whoever wins will probably be dead

Hopefully Goffin or Clement take him out, for the tournaments' sake. We don't need this random guy making it over French players, who actually bring something to the tournament.

Re: Roland Garros R2: Kubot def. [Q] Serra 7-6(0) 6-2 7-6(4)

Get real Filo....Kubot is a way better player than Serra...Your grand delusions are insane...Kubot was much the better player in this match...Much more consistent...Serra has no weapons and its very clear why he isn't anywhere near the Top 100...Lukasz made the 3R here last year and beat Almagro on the way...Not to mention he is about 100 places higher than Serra...Your last fave is gone and you are pissed...Get off Kubot dude...You bashed him the other day and now again today with your idiotic comments about people being beatable when playing irrelevant journeyman...Kubot has had pretty decent results this season and this result was NID...Serra has no weapons and is completely useless outside Challengers and thats the damn reality...Get over it...Seriously tested when he didnt drop a set? That makes absolutely no sense at all...So I guess Del Potro was even more tested today than Kubot if thats your rationale...So Lukasz must be playing better than Del Po and Federer who both lost a set then?...Keep hating and congrats Lukasz...Great win against a total mug and good job for taking advantage of the draw...Keep going my man

I'm not sure there's any reason to treat seriously Filo V. - a couple days ago I saw he had written somewhere that Bolelli would outplay Nadal, it's a sign of not being connected to facts and probable outcomes, reminds more of childish wishful thinking...

A random guy? ....If making 3R of the French two years in a row and 4R Wimby with 2 MP's makes you random, then your faves must wish like hell they were random...Clement and Serra got WC's...They didn't even technically earn a spot in the draw...The tournament doesn't need players like Serra who don't do anything outside of Challengers...Your comments are so laced with bitterness and hate...I hope Lukasz makes the 4R...He deserves it a hell of alot more than Serra, Clement or Goffin.

Re: Roland Garros R2: Kubot def. [Q] Serra 7-6(0) 6-2 7-6(4)

Serra has weapons. His return of serve. He was doing heavy damage on Kubot's serve. The bottom line is, if Serra is a mug, then Kubot also must be a mug. Because Serra was in all three sets and could have easily taken two of them. Kubot is a journeyman. He's 28 and basically shows up for five-six events a season. And I agree Serra is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, yet, Kubot is also. Kubot isn't relevant, he can't beat anyone really good.

Serra was in the match throughout, and Kubot, to his credit, zoned in and played better when he had to. People here were expecting some blowout loss, when anyone who saw the match knows that ultimately, it came down to a few points, and Florent failed and Kubot didn't.

Yeah, yet people here are acting as if Kubot is some champion, and was expected to destroy Serra, although Florent held multiple leads. So you don't have to take me seriously and people can continue to suck Kubot's cock, but the reality is, Serra was totally in the match, and didn't even play a good match. If anything, I'm enthused because I know if Florent gets his game back, he's going to be top 100 in no time. If I were a Kubot fan, I'd worry about Goffin, because this level ain't gonna be enough to beat the more talented player between those two.
