Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

Very smart from Rhyne to play this doubles match. 2h18 minutes of singles plus at least 90 minutes of doubles. Around 4 hours of playing tennis in a day. He will be fresh as a daisy for tomorrow's final, indeed.

Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

6-4 for Robby in the 1st set, but that stats were much more impressive than the socrline sugests. Just conceded 2 points in his serve! 81% of 1st serves IN and 100% of success in converting them.

And now Robby gets breaked in his first service game of 2nd set. NID.

I swear that I only looked away for a minute. Look back and Robby gets steamrolled in the 2nd.

Re: Week 6 : Dallas (Entry List)

WTF! The exact same crazy stats but now in favour of James! This could be the quickest 3 setter (best of 3) in some time, in tennis.

Well, they are at the beginning of their career (have bills to pay). I don't mind him playing doubles b/c it is the only times that I really see him relaxed and have fun (way too stressful in the singles).

That aside, can't believe that they won; they played doubles like singles. Rhyne's forehand has carried him in both singles and doubles.

I hope he can relax a little in the final. Sometimes, I wish he didn't come from a tennis family. Because of his family's reputation and the pressure that came with it, I think it really affected him psychologically. I read that he had a large following as a junior b/c of his grandfather, and the pressure got worse after he won that pro title at age 16. Almost quit tennis at one point I didn't like the idea of him playing college tennis, but glad he did. It was good for him to get away from the spotlight.


In case anyone is wondering, his grandfather is Mike DePalmer Sr (an ITA Hall of Fame Coach and founder of the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy). Rhyne is also the nephew of a former ATP Top 50 pro who coached Boris Becker.
