Tim just downed world #37 and ATP 500 Hamburg champ Golubev 63 76!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In Rogers Cup qualies. Amazing win He's been lights out lately. I really hope he can qualify for the md. That will be HUGE. USO wildcard would be very possible if that happens. I encourage everyone to watch this guys game. Not a lot of weapons, but an amazing scrappy baseliner who can pop winners from anywhere
TT 2017 ROLAND GARROS CHAMPION, w/ chowdahead25
This Tim is good. My brave prediction would be to see him near top 50 by the end of 2012 season.

Tim Smyczek upset No. 4 Alex Kuznetsov, 6-3, 6-3, for his spot in the quarterfinals.
“We know each others game very well,” said Smyczek who trains together with Kuznetsov at the Saddlebrok Resort in Tampa Florida. “Today, I think I was feeling a little bit better, moving a little better.”
“He just got the better of me today,” said Kuznetsov, No. 167, last year’s singles Honolulu finalist who recently lost to Rafafel Nadal in the first round of the Australian Open.
“Perhaps the conditions at our last few tournaments were better for my game,” said Smyczek who has won their last three encounters. “We are very close in ability and I don’t think anyone would be surprised if either one of us won against each other but the last couple have gone my way.”
He will take on No.7 Yuichi Sugita from Japan tomorrow.
