:yeah:
Great decision to skip Kitzbuhel after boost of confidence in Belgrade. Kubot qualified to MD at Roland Garros for the first time in 4th attempt. His 3rd set against Alves was a rollercoaster. Alves led *3:1 (30-15), 5:4, 7:6 and 8:7 (40-30). Kubot had *4:3 and was serving to win the match at 6:5. The match lasted 2 hours 53 minutes.

Matchpoint @ *7-8 30-40

If I were Kubot - I would pray to draw Nadal now, as this could be his only chance in a lifetime to play against him.

Twice.

It's not the longest set for Kubot in terms of games. In qualies to Wimbledon '06 he won against Pequery 6-7(4) 6-2 11-9.

Lukasz held his nerves :eek: :yeah: Good job on qualifying. If Doud couldn't make it through this section of the draw, I am glad Lukasz did.

Good stuff. Nice that these Polish dudes in the last year manage to qualify to Slams. Kubot USO 2006, Przysiezny USO 2007, Olejniczak Wimb 2008 and now Kubot RG 2009.

I wonder which lucky one qualifies next year, maybe to AO.

Kubot deserved to be in the main draw :) He saved one MP at 7:8 30:40 and defeated Alves, so it will improve his confidence :) Good luck in the first round :D

Always nice when a good player like Kubot beats this grunting clown.

now Troicki in first round :scared:

:confused:

Very good draw for Kubot. Troicki has been playing singles and doubles in Dusseldorf. Tomorrow another 2 matches for him, it means tiredness and lack of practise in Paris. Kubot on the other hand practised a lot with last two hard matches and will rest one day more than Troicki before their meeting.

A tiebreak against Djokovic on clay can be considered good, so yeah. He's a good player :p
