Ouch@The Hopeful American Players!

So much for the much talked about American players that would do really well in this Aussie Open. Patty Mac and Brad should just keep their mouths shut.

1st Round
Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (ESP) d. Taylor Dent (USA) 7-6(4) 6-3 7-6(4)

2nd Round
Denis Gremelmayr (GER) d. Robby Ginepri (USA) 2-6 5-7 6-4 6-3 6-3

3rd Round
Tommy Robredo (ESP) d. James Blake (USA) 6-3 6-4 6-4

Perhaps.........
4th Round
Marcos Baghdatis (CYP) d. Andy Rodduck (USA) ???

Re: Ouch@The Hopeful American Players!

The Robby loss was a shocker. I knew Tommy had a chance and Dent's loss isn't really surprising but I did hear he got fitter.

Re: Ouch@The Hopeful American Players!

Dent did get fitter . . . in body, but his mind is still unfit for tennis. His game is still "serve hard and come to net" on EVERY freaking point. Any player who gets the ball back to him wins the point. Poor Taylor will never learn.

I was really surprised that Robby blew his match with that German and I'm shocked that James lost to Tommy in straights, but I wasn't at all surprised that Dent lost.

I know Baghditis is hot right now but so is Andy. I don't expect an upset but wouldn't be surprised if it happen.

Yeah right.

It was very surprising, considering Guillermo is not the kind of player Dent ought to lose to on rebound ace and was not in great condition himself.

That's the Taylor I

Well, if he is fitter physically...that is a huge waddle in the right direction

Re: Ouch@The Hopeful American Players!

Dent has a good serve and volley game, but regardless of the conditioning he has major mental toughness issues. Needs to solve those before he can expect some big time results.

Re: Ouch@The Hopeful American Players!

Robredo was on fire in this match! James really didn't play badly, he just ran into a buzz saw! If Tommy keeps this up, who knows?
