Re: Robert Farah

Robert lost against Dusan Lojda 7-5, 6-4.
Even tough was a good perfomance for his early career
In two and a half months that have just passed, He has risen from 758 to 216 on the ATP ranking
Lets hope that for next year he would no need to qualy for this tournament

Re: Robert Farah

Tough match against Lojda, but good experience for him anyway, hope he continues to progress in the challengers for the rest of the season.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Robert Farah

Damn. Had SP in the first, didn't convert and it was downhill from there.

I think what he needs right now more than anything is some good rest. Enormous amount of matches he played in the last couple months and a lot of traveling doesn't help either.

Re: Robert Farah

Rob must have had a huge night on New Years, he lost 2 and 0 to Bachinger in the 1st round of qualies in Brisbane.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Robert Farah

Watched Rob play today, had a good win over Go Soeda #8 seed in qualies. The forehand needs work.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Robert Farah

Robert's fh has always been unimpressive but he compensates with a great bh plus he has the huge serve and the awesome volleys

Straight sets win for Rob over Tursunov 7-5 6-2 plays the winner of Knittel or Huta Galung for a place in the main draw.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Re: Robert Farah

Rob made it to the MD with a 3 set win over Knittel, hope he can get a good draw.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
