Cool Robby on GRASS! (the court not the... ) pt 1. - Queens Club

I know it's a bit early, but I've been waiting to start this thread for weeks!

I hate to say it, but with 'Mr First Round' we might be okay with just one thread for his next three tournaments. We'll see how it goes. (Make me wrong Robby, please).

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Apparently, Fee, not as early as you thought! Robby is playing Doubles with Bobby in Surbiton

^ that's the doubles draw for Surbiton (which is like a suburb of London)... Robby and Bobby play Flopsy and Mopsy in the first round.... no, actually they play Eric Butorac (USA) and Chris Drake (USA), so maybe they will win? I'll put on a bunny outfit if they don't...

Re: Robby on GRASS!!!!!!! (the court, not the.... )

It's good that Robby decided to play in Surbiton. I hope he can win at least one match in the doubles competition. He really needs to get some matches under his belt.

Robby won his doubles match!! lol, I don't get to say that much, so I'll say it whenever I can... The score was 7-6(4), 6-2... Because Robby and Bobby had such a lead in the second set, Robby went for some flare on their first match point, and did a through-legs shot... they didn't win that point, but they won the next one! Robby was spotted this week practicing with Mardy... it's nice to know that he is getting some practice and matches in on grass... I think it was the right decision for him to come here instead of going back home to Georgia

Re: Robby on GRASS!!!!!!! (the court, not the.... )

Robby lost his doubles match today... back to practicing!

The Top 8 seeds for Stella Artois get a Bye in the first round... Robby is lingering in that area, but he'll need a couple people to withdraw first, like Ancic and Nadal to secure a Top 8 seeding... The draw comes out Saturday at 4pm local time...

Re: Robby on GRASS!!!!!!! (the court, not the.... )

ancic is already out and rafa would probably wait til after the RG final to pull out so that wouldn't help Robby as the draw would be made already. some people think ljubicic might pull out but he has til tomorrow to decide i guess.

Re: Robby on GRASS!!!!!!! (the court, not the.... )

we'll see then, I guess ... maybe Nadal will withdraw tomorrow? maybe not... I don't really care if Robby gets a Bye or not, because I can see a positive either way

Re: Robby on GRASS!!!!!!! (the court, not the.... )

Depends on the ATP rules. The rules clearly state that while you are active in one tournament, you aren't supposed to be able to pull out of next week's tournament, however this year, that has been seemingly ignored a few times, so we're all confused by it, where other players have been told that the rules applied to them. I wouldn't count on it anyway because I think the difficulty of the RG final would determine whether he'll play or not. HE says he wants to win Wimbledon, and he showed up in Halle last year, he can probably get a Wednesday start too, so I think he might play.

Considering how badly Robby needs matches, I don't think having a bye is good for him.

Oh no! Considering that Paul has only played 2 tournaments since the middle of April, Robby should beat him. The thing is that Robby should have won many matches this year, but unfortunately lost most of them. This is grass and he has to turn his season around. BTW, does someone know how many points Robby has to defend during the US hardcourt swing?
