Not sure if it was posted or not, but I thought it was interesting that someone could lose 54 matches in a row and then finally win one.

He beat Arzhang Derakhshani of the U.S., then lost to Artur Romanowski of Poland in straights the next round.

So he's lost 110 of the 112 sets of his pro career. as the article says, 108 straight sets lost. Damn.

I wonder at what point he'll think of choosing another career.

I'm pretty sure he could beat Djokovic.

Pretty coincidental Robert Dee didn't hold his own record but equalled the record. Maybe he answered the media's critics with a win

It's a joke that ESPN writes a story on this, but whatever...
