Smile Robby...2006 preview

Robby will arrive in 2006 as the #17 player in the world (an all-time high for him)... So far, he has confirmed playing at Auckland and Delray Beach in January '06... he will, of course, play in the AO (assuming he is healthy)...and may be seeded inside the Top 16 there...So far, no confirmation of him playing in Adelaide yet, in the first week of January, if he ends up not playing anywhere before Auckland, he most likely won't move up in the rankings prior to the AO draw, but may still be seeded in the Top 16 if anyone above him withdraws...

I'm looking forward to Robby in '06...

Re: Robby...2006 preview

The entry lists for the pre-AO tourneys will come out pretty soon (whenever 6 weeks before the tourney is), so then you'll know where he's entered for sure

Re: Robby...2006 preview

So I guess we'll know within a week...When James Blake confirmed he would play in Adelaide, there was an article on the tournament site about it...I just thought they would do something similar if Robby had confirmed his appearance there, so that's one of the reasons I don't get a feeling he will play there...but anyway, we'll see...

Re: Robby...2006 preview

eh, those articles are put out based on sometimes verbal agreements or whatever, or someone's agency or something, so that doesn't mean anything that he wasn't mentioned in a press release type thing.

Re: Robby...2006 preview

How similar do we think Robby's schedule in '06 will be to the one he had this year? We will surely see him in Indy again (assuming health, of course)...Not that I want to preview the whole year by any means, but just wondering how similar he will make it...

Re: Robby...2006 preview

I know a lot of players have favorite Tournaments that they like to play each year. I really don't care where Robby plays as long as he can stay healthy and have some good results

Re: Robby...2006 preview

Most players play relatively similar schedules year after year... they just figure out what works and where they're happy, etc. I'd imagine he'll play the new tourney in Vegas right before IW...

I suppose since he maybe will now expect to do better and go deeper into the tourneys he plays, that he might cut out a tourney here or there and play a bit less. but otherwise there probably won't be too many changes

Re: Robby...2006 preview

Yes I think we would trade him playing in less Tournaments, if the reason for it was because he was going deep into the Tournaments that he is playing

Re: Robby...2006 preview

Mae, remember we wanted to work Robby like a dog this year... ...but I see we'll probably both throw him a bone if he goes deep into the tournaments he plays in next year... If he's a good boy, we'll ease up on his schedule, right?

Re: Robby...2006 preview

i think you're wrong debs he's more likely to switch to bigger events! last year he was playing a few tournys that were too small for him coz he couldn't get in the big main draws he's more likely to upgrade where he can

Good Luck to my boys

Re: Robby...2006 preview

you're right, he probably didn't always get what he wanted last year, but now he might upgrade...
