WTF?! Guy is ranked 321 in the world, 23 years old so not even a young prospect. Even a bad HC-player like DGT should win against him/ This is terrible...

I like DGT, but today it looked like he didn't once pick up a racket during the offseason :lol:

Congrats to Sergei on the win :)

Bubka did what he had to do. DGT was hilariously shit. Every time he tried something other than a forehand blast, the results were hilarious. Drop shots and drop volleys bouncing before the net, backhand slices never making it more than six inches off the ground. Too big.

Bubka has a pretty big game. His average serve speed was over 200kmph and he hit the lines near the end when a player of his ranking could have choked.

Anyone know why he got a WC? He looks a better player than his ranking suggests anyway

Excellent serving stats for Bubka.74% 1st serves with 81% pts won behind it. Service action reminds me a little of Isner with less of a knee bend.

Bubka's serve put him in pole position. Surely going to vault up the rankings. Quite a jump in performance.

I'll stop now.

I figured it's cos of his dad, but has Bubka Sr any specific relations with Qatar I mean? I doubt the Qatari royals just happen to be big pole vault fans. Maybe he is involved with one of Doha's sporting academies or something

How many players picked DGT in Suicide Tennis Doha! :devil:

Okay, so last year Sergey Bubka Sr was president of the IAAF. The vice-president of the IAAF, Dahlan Al-HAmAd is from...well, take a guess. Also while Bubka was president, the World Indoor Athletics champs were held in...well, guess.

If you guessed "Qatar" and "Doha" respectively, then you get 2 biscuits.

Some nice contacts there.

Bubka Has a lot of money is probably the best athlete alltime and has set a bunch of world records
Think he gave them a lot of money

I guess DGT is throwing this first month away and focuses entirely on the clay swing after.

How many players picked DGT in Suicide Tennis Doha! :devil:

I thought exactly the same when I came home and saw "5-0 Bubka" in the 1st set :D
After he did the same sh*t against Ryderstedt in Stockholm (where I picked him), I was so sure he's gonna lose again so I picked GGL :haha:

The only good things by DGT was a couple of serves in the 2nd set, maybe also 1-2 shots that bounced low.

When he had bad phases, gosh those were properly bad.

Bubka served really well and didn't let DGT drag into the match.

I first saw Bubka in the GBR vs. Ukraine Davis Cup tie a couple of years ago and believed back then that if he could use his big serve and hone the rest of his game he'd be a half-decent prospect. Injuries have set him back in recent months, but let's see what he is capable of this year...he has been into the top 200 before.

But, as you say, this match is fairly meaningless. DGT was dreadful in the first set, and certainly apart from the serving performance Bubka wasn't amazing from the back of the court...he hit quite a few high balls that better players would have dealt with ruthlessly.
