I think you're right... this is Robby's first win over a top 10 player this year, and it's about time! I don't think Robby's won at least 4 matches in a row since the 2005 US Open! but he's done that here in Madrid with his wins over Davydenko, Llodra, Schwank, and Tipsarevic (all of whom were ranked higher than him). Way to go, Robby!!

Re: Last of the year Tournaments 2008

But as usual with Robby it all comes to a end I missed the Davy Match (you might know) and saw the Simon Match But what really got my attention was the way Robby looked. I hadn't seen him play in some time and he has really slimmed down Not that Robby was ever fat, but I felt his build was more for a football player than a tennis player. Not that I didn't like those muscles, but I felt on the tennis court too much muscle could hurt movement and the ability to stretch out. Well I don't know if Robby and Josie are still dating, but if so there is a lot less of Robby to love Seriously I thought he looked really good, but the Match result just wasn't good Still this is the most Matches Robby has won in a row for a long time and it was just too bad some of them had to be played just to get into the Tournament. But may be this is a sign better days are ahead

Wow, I wasn't sure Robby could pull it off today... 6-7(4), 6-4, 6-4 over Sebastien Grosjean. Both of them were having trouble holding serve.

Roddick's up next.

I completely missed the Tournament where he lost to Roddick in two tiebreaks--that could almost be considered a win for Robby because he has no confidence in his ability to defeat Roddick at all. I think maybe he has defeated him once in all the years they have been playing Pro Tennis maybe twice At this time of year I just don't seem as interested in following tennis so I miss complete Tournments I don't know why I always lose interest at this time of year

Same old story for Robby He plays his way into Tournaments only to turn around and play his way out of Tournaments

Re: Last of the year Tournaments 2008

I wouldn't really blame Robby, I saw a big part of the match today and Berdych is just too good indoors. yeah Robby had his chances, but it was a hard draw.
