Robby's Wars 2010: Episode 1 - Australian Open menace.

Robby will have to do well to improve his awful ranking.
He usually plays bad in Australia, maybe Robby will surprise us this year.
His 1st stop is Chennai, where he faces 1st seed Soderling in R1.
Come on Robby!

Mardy Fish!

Wasn't he having some injury issues last year? But, no, he hasn't been known for strong starts in previous years... maybe that's why he decided to mix things up and give India a shot this year.

Re: Robby's Wars 2010: Episode 1 - Australian Open menace.

Beating Soderking is amazing
But I hope it was not just because Robin was bad.
Anybody saw the match? Looking at stats, we can say that Robby's 1st serve worked brilliantly - 11 aces! But he was poor on 2nd serve winning just 42% of points.
Anyway Robby has got a great draw since now.
Lucas Lacko ---> probably Dudi Sela ---> probably Stanislas Wawrinka ---> probably Marin Cilic.
May the power be with Robby

Mardy Fish!

Great start for Robby in 2010, winning his first main-draw match, beating the #1 seed in the tournament... I don't think he's done that since Indy 2005

I hope he can win his next match, and try to get more points for himself, but way to go, Robby!

Re: Robby's Wars 2010: Episode 1 - Australian Open menace.

Hasn't Robby had a history of stepping up and playing well against the higher ranked players, but easing up when he plays qualifiers or lower ranked guys?

Re: Robby's Wars 2010: Episode 1 - Australian Open menace.

Robby played in Adelaide exho and shown nothing spectacular, losing 2 matches out of 3 (l. to Tomic and Stepanek, def. Simon).
His draw in Melbourne:
Youzhny (20) vs Gasquet
Hajek vs Ginepri
Kubot vs Zverev
Giraldo vs Robredo (16)
