Re: Rhyne Williams

Rhyne gave a walk over, must be the shoulder again I think he is done for the year. I hope he gets his shoulder analyzed again, can't take Advil forever. I don't feel as excited with Rhyne not in action

Re: Rhyne Williams

According to his blog, Rhyne is planning to play Rotterdam next year instead of Memphis. Contractual agreement with his sponsor ABN AMRO (owns the tournament). Not sure if he will get a wildcard or will have to go thru qualifying. May conflict with his Dallas title defense. Might not be the wisest decision, 100 + 65 = 165 points at risk

I am happy to see that Rhyne has done well, statistically, on the ATP tour in 2013. Nice to see him make top 100 in 2nd return points won, one of the few stats that I care about. The ability to win points on your opponents' serve is very important. Now if only he can improve mentally and stop choking...

Re: Rhyne Williams

Same old brand new Rhyne.

Quote:
The only seed to tumble out on the first day was defending champion Rhyne Williams, who succumbed to Chase Buchanan 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-2. Williams served for the match at 6-5 in the second set and had not been broken all day. That, however, is when a monumental meltdown began. Buchanan broke back immediately before his opponent fell apart in the tiebreaker and throughout the third set. Williams both entertained and frustrated the crowd with arguments, expletives, and one destroyed racket. To Buchanan’s credit, though, the former Ohio State Buckeye earned his win and finished several amazing baseline rallies with ridiculous shot-making.

Re: Rhyne Williams

Rhyne kicks off the 2014 campaign in Brisbane for the 2nd year in a row. Qualifying 1st round against former teammate JP Smith. Draw: http://www.atpworldtour.com/posting/2014/339/qs.pdf
Surprised that Rhyne didn't go to Noumea with Tennys. They usually play the same tournaments when possible & he likes to travel to new places. Guess he rather be with his girlfriend who received a MDWC into Brisbane.

Re: Rhyne Williams

Good effort against Delpo. I apologize to those that PMed me the last couple of days, will get back to you soon.

Replay: http://espn.go.com/watchespn/player/...ize/condensed/

Rhyne Williams: I’m beginning to notice a trend in who impressed me today. Rhyne Williams is another young up-and-comer who really moved through the rankings last year, although he seems to have hit a barrier right around the edge of the top 100. With the way he played against world No. 5 Juan Martin Del Potro, though, that barrier won’t last long. Williams was fearless on his second serve and his groundstrokes, producing some amazing tennis. He was serving bombs and hit some forehands that should make even Del Potro jealous. And while he never had enough in him to break the Argentine’s massive serve more than once, he made Delpo work hard for the four-set win—something that not many players in the world can do.

http://www.ausopen.com/en_AU/news/ar...690767593.html
Quote:
It takes a lot to send a lob over Juan Martin del Potro. The big friendly Argentine stands at 198cm tall, a frighteningly large presence across the net. And that's before he's begun welting his forehand like he's pelting a baseball.

With the Sydney title already on his winning sheet for 2014, the former US Open champion is one of those viewed to be a real, realistic contender for Grand Slam glory, taking some of the limelight away from the Big Four. After all, he is the only other one to have been there, done that.

But Rhyne Williams, it turned out, was unruffled by Del Potro's presence on the same court as him, taking a set off the Argentine before the fifth seed prevailed 6-7(1) 6-3 6-4 6-4 on Wednesday.

A 22-year-old qualifier who hails from Tennessee and one of the many US college tennis players on tour, the bearded American surprised both Del Potro and the Margaret Court Arena crowd with that first set, having recovered from a break down to pinch it 7-1 in a tie-break.

If being a set down in the first round of a Grand Slam made Del Potro see as red as the colour of his shirt, to Williams's credit, he was no one-set wonder. Just three breaks of serve decided the match for Del Potro, and he had to work more than hard for every one of them.

"I didn't expect this kind of matches against him. I didn't know too much before the match how he's playing tennis," Del Potro admitted.

"But he serve well. His forehand is good. I start the match really, really slow, and then was difficult to come back and play my game.

"But in the end, I serve well. I hit some good forehands. That's help me to improve a little bit my game.”

Williams showed how Del Potro can be exploited, achieving that rare thing against a big hitter: out-hitting him. Thundering down 29 aces to Del Potro's 16 and 55 winners to 46, he took the match to a player ranked 125 places above him.

Where Williams let himself down was in the unforced error department, 39 of them to Del Potro's 29. He struggled when the rallies went long, an encouraging feature for supporters of the Argentine, who have long believed that when he displays stamina from the back of the court, he is among the best in the world from the baseline. Even in the heat, which he admitted was a struggle.

"I mean, it was for both player, but is tough to play long rallies, to manage the weather conditions. It’s tough to play in these kind of conditions," Del Potro said.

"I mean, you are thinking about a lot more things than the tennis match. You are trying to drink a lot and always thinking about your body, your physic, and not about the game.

"I know tomorrow and after tomorrow it's going to be worst, so I will try to be ready for the weather conditions, too."

Thus, while it was not the easiest of tussles, it is one that bodes well for Del Potro. He sits in a tricky part of the draw, in Rafael Nadal's quarter, with Grigor Dimitrov his potential fourth round opponent before that.

It is counter-productive to say what could happen in four matches' time. But, suitably warmed up for the fight, there seems to be no reason why, should they collide in the last eight, Del Potro could not reverse what happened the last time he and Nadal met, in the fourth round at Wimbledon in 2011. He is an altogether more complete and confident package than he was then.
