Re: Robby in 2012

I'm glad that Robby didn't skip a beat, and went straight to playing more matches after San Jose. He needs match play as much as he can get it these days. It'll help him become more and more numb to the pressures that come in the crucial moments (at least that's my theory), and that could only help him focus on working each point and finishing each point with good execution.

I was hoping he wouldn't draw Anderson. He's a guy who can easily hold serve indoors... Robby will need that serve to be working well for him so as to decrease the chances of Anderson getting break points, and to increase the confidence he'll need to win this one. Good luck to him, but Anderson will be the favorite.

Poor Robby what I can say? I think if you were playing him I would put my vcash on you

Re: Robby in 2012

Yes idolwatcher1 was right about the Match as always! She knows Robby like a book and yet I don't even know if she has ever even met him in real life?

Re: Robby in 2012

He got a main draw wildcard into Delray Beach. Hoping for an easier first round opponent (no big server please).

Re: Robby in 2012

His wildcard spot is replaced with Levine, I guess he pulled out.

Re: Robby in 2012

I wasn't clear on exactly why he requested a wildcard to Delray Beach and then once he was awarded it, pulling out... it made me think maybe he wasn't physcially feeling well

It's nice to see him get into Indian Wells, but it's not going to mean much unless he can win his first round match. I hope he's been practicing his serve and in good shape for whoever will be his first round opponent.

Re: Robby in 2012

Robby gets a qualifier in the 1st round with Wawrinka waiting in the 2nd. Possible third round against the Frenchman Simon.

Re: Robby in 2012

I didn't follow this match, but just looking at the stats... oh. my. word! His first serve percentage was horrible- 51%, and his break point chances. OMG! He had 16 break points! converted on only 4 of them. He also had more double faults than aces. It's almost amazing that he won this match! We'll see if he improves against Wawrinka in the next round...

Re: Robby in 2012

I was going to say it took Robby 3 Sets to win a Match against a player I have never even heard of I have, however, obviously heard of Stan and I don't think Robby will win his 2nd Rd Match

Re: Robby in 2012

Robby , was kinda glad I didn't see the match; not sure if I can bear through another collapse.
