Heading to grass court season 2009...

After an awful first half of the year, Robby is heading to London, where he will start his grass court campaign.
So he plays 4 tournaments on grass this year: Queens, Eastbourne, Wimbledon and finally Newport.
Hope he can do well and stay healthy or he will be out of top 100 in no-time.
Good luck Robby

Oh joy And you might know I'm also a fan of Murray's. And according to rege Robby is going to be out of the Top 100--see her post in the ranking thread

Re: Heading to grass court season 2009...

Of course he will be, he made the 4th round at RG last year and has done absolutely nothing, those were really the only points he had.

Why oh why is Robby doing this now? He didn't choke back when he was #15 in the World. I guess we will never know I keep thinking something must have happened that underminded his confidence and he started losing. And then, of course, losing would further underdermind his confidence and the cycle just keeps repeating itself. But what started the cycle in the first place I really just don't know

Re: Heading to grass court season 2009...

He was out of the game for a while and probably couldn't even practice much while he was recovering - it takes time to rebuild the confidence to put away the matches and play the big points well

It'a Santoro. I hope Santoro won't do any of his "magic" on Robby, but Santoro can still play there's no doubt about that.

Re: Heading to grass court season 2009...

Fabrice is a very bad match-up for Robby, as well as he is pretty good on grass.

How right we both were about Santoro's ability--ring up yet another loss for Robby

Re: Heading to grass court season 2009...

Well as soon as I saw the draw I knew Robby had no chance of going anywhere at Wimbledon And on top of the loss the trainer was attending to Robby Robby looks physically strong, but he seems to always have some nagging injury. It looked like this one was in the shoulder/neck area. I had to have the sound down as others in my family were still sleeping so I couldn't hear what was being said about the injury.
