Look at how far Korolev has fallen. People were hailing him to be the next Safin way back in 2006. Now, coming off serious elbow surgery, you have to wonder if he'll ever reach his potential, or if he was overrated from the beginning.

An impressive win for Bobby though, everyone loves Bobby. He's coming back from injury too and doing a good job of it. Don't be surprised to see Bobby back in the top 100 in time for Wimbledon/US Open.

poor korolev. it takes a while to come back from wrist and elbow types of injuries.

I have it on good authority that Korolev is unwell and was bedridden a matter of days ago. Don't read too much into this match...

Thanks for the information JustJames. That's too bad to hear for Korolev. He's one of my favorites. Hopefully he does well during AO qualifying, and can get some good practices in beforehand.
