Article : Lukasz Kubot "As long as you fight, you are the winner"

"As long as you fight, you are the winner," said Lukasz Kubot after his spectacular five set win over seeded Nicolas Almagro at Roland Garros 2011. He claims it's his family's motto. No wonder - his father is a professional football coach and Lukasz has sport in his blood.

Before he beat Almagro from 0-2 set deficit in the same year he came back from 1-5 against another Spaniard, Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo, for the final triumph 7-5 6-0. He hasn't always been known for that. For years Polish spectators at local challengers, when they saw Kubot up against his opponent, awaited a collapse as something more obvious than a night to appear after day. I have witnessed these wild roars and the sound of unidentified gear breaking behind the wall. Kubot was in the player restroom, and I was waiting at the press office of Szczecin Challenger after he miraculously lost a match to Albert Montanes despite leading and being a better performer. "These failures... they stay inside me," he confessed.

Good article about Kubot written by Nathii. Since he is the current GM craze, I thought I would post it. The rest can be found in the link below.

Q-bot has always been a fighter. At one stage of his career (2006) he had an extraordinary record in tight matches (27-6, including astonishing 13-3 in deciding tie-break sets). A couple months later debuted in majors (US Open) and won his first two matches after five-setters (one of them 4 hours 20 minutes).

Hey Kubot what if both players fight? Can there be two winners? :)

But yeah he's so right. When a lower ranked finds themselves in a 0-2 deficit they usually fold quicker than a piece of paper at an origami festival
