That has sadly been the case with Robby in a lot of matches this year. He gets himself into a winning position but he can't close anything out. What makes it even sadder in this particular case is that this could have been his last match at the US Open.

i think he will be playing next year, thing is if he can get into the draw because if he doesn't get his ranking up he won't be just needs a few wins on the challenger tour under his belt but he can't string it along

Re: Robby in 2012

Robby can get wildcards into US tournaments, but the problem is that he can't get wins these days.

Re: Robby in 2012

I wouldn't be surprised if Robby was cramping. He's not used to playing such long matches anymore.

If Robby continues to play beyond this season, he'll really need to raise his level because I don't think he will be lucking out with a Wild Card again.

He doesn't have a coach And the only time Robby was doing well he was going to see a sports psychologist. For some reason he stopped seeing the sports psychologist and his tennis has never been the same! And also as he had gotten older he has had more injuries plus other heath problems. I hate to say this, but I don't know why he is still on the Tour? He can't be making much money, if all he ever does is lose

Re: Robby in 2012

Well Andy has said he is retiring and he has always played a lot better than Robby. So to me it would seem logical that Robby would see the hand writing on the wall and would take a hint. But I don't think Robby is big on logic

Re: Robby in 2012

I can't even find the website that I was told was run by Robby's sister. May be even his sister has given up?

I kinda had the same thought when I heard of Andy's retirement. I don't see much of a point in Robby continuing beyond this season. He may have never been a Grand Slam contender, but he was a top 100 player for many many years. I can't believe that he's happy struggling to get wins against mugs who are not even ranked within the top 200. But in the end it's Robby's decision to make and I'll support him whichever which way.

Re: Robby in 2012

Yes we can always remember he was once #15 in the World! And if I ever got to meet him the first thing I would ask is, "Why did you stop seeing your sports psychologist?"

And while you're at it, can you ask for the name of the psychologist? Kudla and Williams could use one.

Believe me I would do it, but I'm never going to get the chance!

Re: Robby in 2012

Robby is the 2nd Alt in a CH to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia starting on the 29th of Oct. Another thing I have noticed more and more about Robby is he is trying to play as close to his home as possible.
