Robby "the clay-master" goes for another win in Hamburg cheering thread

So, a new week and a new tournament. Let's see if Robby can follow up his second round result in Rome with another win on the european clay courts. His draw doesn't look good, but he might be able to surprise us.He's in Nadal's half of the draw. This is Robby's quarter:

(7)GONZALEZ, Fernando CHI vs TURSUNOV, Dmitry RUS
HRBATY, Dominik SVK vs (WC)MAYER, Florian
CHELA, Juan Ignacio ARG vs VERDASCO, Fernando ESP
Qualifier vs (10)CORIA, Guillermo ARG

(14)GINEPRI, Robby USA vs GROSJEAN, Sebastien FRA
VOLANDRI, Filippo ITA vs PASHANSKI, Boris SCG
ACASUSO, Jose ARG vs (WC)GREUL, Simon GER
Qualifier vs (3)LJUBICIC, Ivan CRO

Mirnyi | Maria K. | Ginepri | Kim C. | Verdasco | Elena D. | Dimitrov | Aga R. | Haas | Ana I. | Tsonga | Sabine L. | Del Potro | Julia G.

29 years ago, one young man conquered the world of Formula 1: Ayrton Senna. You´ll never be forgotten!!!

Re: Robby "the clay-master" goes for another win in Hamburg cheering thread

Robby will really need to find his rythym here if he wants to get another win. Seb has, of course, had much better clay court results than Robby ...(took a set off Nadal in Ro16 at RG last year)... and, um, there's always the potential for a double bagel I just hope Robby avoids that!

I don't think Seb is going to be the kind who will make UE if Robby gets into another 16+shot rally... When he was in the 29-shot rally against Monfils, Robby totally set up Gael for the winner, and Robby needs to be aware that when the other guy is playing smoothly and not making a lot of errors, after awhile, you're chances are probably best if you attempt to set yourself up for the possible winner, and not just hope the other guy will make a mistake. Robby will need to take some calculated risks during the match, at least every once in awhile, if he hopes to win it. Mixing up his strategy for each point may be a way of throwing Seb off a little.

Good luck to Robby!!

I'm assuming Robby will just stay in Germany this whole next week regardless of the results next week.

in other words, at least he won't have to worry about traveling far if he has a first round loss

James perhaps? The sign-in was today, that's odd that the draw isn't out yet.

Wait, the draw is out! Robby's playing with Bhupathi

Bhupathi won mixed doubles titles at the AO this year and the USO last year... so it'll be interesting to see how this match turns out... Bhupathi was asking some players if they wanted to play doubles with him... he asked Robredo but he was already with Ferrer, but he wound up with Robby who didn't have anyone else... hopefully it's a match made in heaven

Robby and Bhupathi is quite a surprise. I get the impression that Bhupathi still hasn't found the right partner since Woodbridge retired and left him. However, I am convinced Robby can benefit from playing doubles and if his partner is one of the best doubles players in the world it is even better.

Although Robby has been playing better recently I think he still has to improve his game to be as successful as before...

Come on, Robby!
