Re: On to LA for the BATTLE OF THE G-MEN!!!! (US Open Series)

Work commitments prevent me from attending the match, but I know someone who is volunteering at the event and promised to stop by for a few minutes on my behalf during break times.

Good luck, Robby!

Re: On to LA for the BATTLE OF THE G-MEN!!!! (US Open Series)

So today, before Robby's match, there were these kids on the main practice court at the event. This one boy who said he had just turned 8 was sooooooooo cute. he was AMAZING, like, unreal forehand and stuff. So good. So Robby comes in to warm up before his match and the security is telling this kid to leave. But then Robby is hitting with him for a few minutes. it was SO SWEET omg. And when they finish, Robby shakes his hand and the kid is walking to go out of the practice area and has the biggest smile on his face I've ever seen.

It. was. freaking. adorable.

AWW!! Thanks for sharing that Deb!

After the first two games, I hope Robby can kick things into gear... he doesn't seem too great right now... Justin wants to win too, and Robby will have to pick things up if he wants to win here...

Wow, you can tell all of that from a scoreboard? That's impressive.

Wonder what Robby and that young boy talked about...

Robby won the first set 6-4, breaking Justin at 4-4, then serving it out and saving one break point against him in the last game.

Re: On to LA for the BATTLE OF THE G-MEN!!!! (US Open Series)

Robby broke Justin in the first game of the second set. Barring a major meltdown, he should take this match now. I'm too tired to stay up for it, so I'll check back in the morning.

Congrats Robby! 6-4, 6-4 is a good result, but I have to say that Robby needs to improve his bp conversion. I really have to say that he's on a good way and I hope that he can keep this up.

Good win for Robby, he's really picking up his game. I hope he keeps his head together and continues to win matches.

*phew* Robby! Almost got broken serving for the match. A tough one (from the score) but a good win.

Re: On to LA for the BATTLE OF THE G-MEN!!!! (US Open Series)

Robby won today because another MTF-er was at the tournament and said hello to him for me before the match (I haven't seen him since the USO last year). Obviously, he was inspired to know that I was still thinking of him and he went on to win his match, but it wasn't pretty.




Okay, that's not what happened...
