Re: Robby in 2012

46 46, kinda expected tbh. Watching his match against McClune few days ago, his game is not what it used to be (lacks the firepower/intensity displayed in the past).

Re: Robby in 2012

Do you think Robby will be given a wildcard into the US Open? I wouldn't be surprised if he has to play qualies in light of his poor form lately.

Re: Robby in 2012

The wildcards were already announced, Robby was not offered one. Considering his form and results, I don't blame them for not giving him one.

Me either. I support Robby, but I am honest enough to admit that there are more deserving US players this year.

I think all his injuries and health problems have really hurt him. He has been having shoulder problems recently. Plus he is not as young as he used to be!

Re: Robby in 2012

In the US Open entry list thread, Robby got the wc since Ram got in with his own ranking.

Re: Robby in 2012

That's nice that he still got in. Ramos is actually not a bad draw, but I fear that even if he gets himself into a winning position, he's going to choke it away.

Re: Robby in 2012

I wouldn't be surprised if Robby is getting worked on by the physio. The breaks between play are too long now.
