Florent probably would have won this match had he actually played a good match. Very disappointing performance, served for the third set, had all kinds of openings in the first set, had the break in the second set and led 3-0 in the final tiebreak. Just couldn't consistently maintain a decent level and got torched off second serves and Kubot destroyed him with dropshots.

Kubot was decent, but beatable. Florent failed to capitalize. Bad result for the tournament.

Serra outplayed Kubot for extended periods but then Kubot got in zones and took over. If Serra lacks ability, what does that make this Kubot dude, who was seriously tested by a mug?

Get real Filo....Kubot is a way better player than Serra...Your grand delusions are insane...Kubot was much the better player in this match...Much more consistent...Serra has no weapons and its very clear why he isn't anywhere near the Top 100...Lukasz made the 3R here last year and beat Almagro on the way...Not to mention he is about 100 places higher than Serra...Your last fave is gone and you are pissed...Get off Kubot dude...You bashed him the other day and now again today with your idiotic comments about people being beatable when playing irrelevant journeyman...Kubot has had pretty decent results this season and this result was NID...Serra has no weapons and is completely useless outside Challengers and thats the damn reality...Get over it...Seriously tested when he didnt drop a set? That makes absolutely no sense at all...So I guess Del Potro was even more tested today than Kubot if thats your rationale...So Lukasz must be playing better than Del Po and Federer who both lost a set then?...Keep hating and congrats Lukasz...Great win against a total mug and good job for taking advantage of the draw...Keep going my man

Serra has weapons. His return of serve. He was doing heavy damage on Kubot's serve. The bottom line is, if Serra is a mug, then Kubot also must be a mug. Because Serra was in all three sets and could have easily taken two of them. Kubot is a journeyman. He's 28 and basically shows up for five-six events a season. And I agree Serra is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, yet, Kubot is also. Kubot isn't relevant, he can't beat anyone really good.

Serra was in the match throughout, and Kubot, to his credit, zoned in and played better when he had to. People here were expecting some blowout loss, when anyone who saw the match knows that ultimately, it came down to a few points, and Florent failed and Kubot didn't.

Yeah, yet people here are acting as if Kubot is some champion, and was expected to destroy Serra, although Florent held multiple leads. So you don't have to take me seriously and people can continue to suck Kubot's cock, but the reality is, Serra was totally in the match, and didn't even play a good match. If anything, I'm enthused because I know if Florent gets his game back, he's going to be top 100 in no time. If I were a Kubot fan, I'd worry about Goffin, because this level ain't gonna be enough to beat the more talented player between those two.

Random in the sense that, ultimately, Kubot adds nothing to the event, and Goffin and Clement, as well as Serra, do. So yes, for the tournament, it would be better for Goffin, who appears likely to beat Clement, to beat Kubot. Because he has a future, and Kubot basically doesn't.

Kubot's ROS is one of his best weapons. He is a great at ROS (better than Serra) which is why he has beat Karlovic several times. Serra can't be that great at ROS, otherwise he would have better results and be ranked much higher because he would be winning matches. Serra was not in set 2...Are you crazy? 6-2...That is not being in a set. So I guess Venus was in set 2 against Radwanska when she was down 5-2? Unreal...The point here is Serra is way MORE irrelevant than Kubot and he doesn't deserve to be in the 3R...Thats why the draws are made so the higher ranked players can go farther in the tournament. Kubot beat Monfils at Wimbledon and Almagro on clay at the French last year. That is definitely beating two players who are really good on their best surface. As reported, the best wins of his career. So, that comment is false. Today, it was not a few points that made the difference except for the 3rd set TB. But Kubot had a 3-1 lead in that set anyways, so it's not like Serra ever had a decent lead. The bottome line is Serra didn't win a set and he lost in 3. He didn't lose in 5, he didn't lose in 4, he lost in 3straight sets. My God, Kubot won the 1st set TB 7-0. You call that Serra losing a "few" points? Having a chance? What a delusional take on the match.

You are right. Anyone that won would deserve it. But Kubot doesn't deserve it less than Serra or Clement. I made that comment because Fee-Lo Green is ridiculing Kubot for no reason and it's unnecessary. I actually like Clement, so I am not including him here. But Goffin has his whole career to go deep in slams. Kubot is on the tail end of his career. It would be much nicer to see someone on the tail end of their career who has a pretty decent ranking make the 4R of a slam.

Sonja1989

Filo, you can't be real. You are totally wrong about the match. Kubot had 2-0 lead at first set, served for the set at 6-5, won the tie-break easily. Second set.. it doesn't need a comment. About the third set, Kubot had 3-0 and break point, then he became frustrated, played few bad games. Actually I saw the match and I think it was Kubot's hand, when he had few bad moments, Serra could take advantage for a while but that's all IMO.


JamieMU30, you can't write down players just because of their current ranking, Goffin is a young talented guy, he didn't really have chance to make a good ranking so far and Clement is a former top 10 player.
There was a time when Serra had a good ranking as well, #36.

You are pressed. Kubot has more of a future than Serra and Clement (even though I like Arnaud). Kubot just made the Final of Doubles in Rome. When was the last time Serra made a Master's final of any kind? Stay pressed:worship:

Well, I definitely think that current rankings contribute to the current level of play that a player is at. I wouldn't pick someone just because of their ranking. I take into account Kubot's ranking, his 3R last year all the way from qualifying in this same tournament, his 4R all the way from qualifying at Wimbledon, his overall performance in slams, his recent run to the Doubles final in Rome on clay, the head-to-head, the number and details of each player's wins for the year, Serra's current ranking and his Current level of play, the pressure about playing in front of his home crowd, the amount of matches and sets played in the last week, and the fact that Lukasz is fighting for a spot in the Olympics which is what this year has been about for him. Unlike Fee-Lo Green, I don't just pick my faves to win because I like them. I actually weigh all the evidence and facts before I decide who is more likely to win a match and that's why I usually choose the winner correctly, unlike others who use bias to make predictions and then ridicule and bash other players when their said predictions are wrong. Basically, my predictions and comments are informed, not misinformed or exaggerated.

Yeah, Kubot actually hasn't been in fine form for quite some time but has been able to maintain a really good ranking because of such fortunate draws.

Having Serra in R64 here is an absolute joke. One of the worst match-ups in the second round (and I like Lukasz, and don't dislike Florent).

Filo, you know the more talented player won. You are right, for once, that this is a bad result for the tournament (if by that you mean the home crowd). But clearly neither player would have gone very far. Serra is a Challenger player at the moment and nothing this RG disproves that. There is a lot of work to be done if he wants to get back to the Top 100.

Good point...Just because a tournament is in a certain country doesn't mean the players from that country deserve to go deep in that tournament. It's about who the better players are on the given day. Kubot is not some random guy...He has had more success than Serra who isn't even inside the Top 150. Filo is just pressed. Serra was one of his only faves left, so Filo is irrelevant concerning this tournament now and he is crying like a baby about it. He makes blanketed statements for attention. What amazes me is that he supports so many Challenger mugs and is beyond pissed when they don't make the 3rd or 4th round of a slam. Logically, does this make any sense? No. What is worse for the tournament is a guy with no recent success ranked outside the Top 150 making the 4R of a slam, much moreso than a Top 50 player who seems to perform very well in slams. I still think this has nothing to do with Kubot, but more to do with the fact that Pippy and all his faves were massacred out of the tournament by their superiors because they are piss poor players on the given day (some on most days). If you back players that are muggy at best, you need to accept that they will only go so far. There is no need to bash Kubot. He is a nice guy and hard worker and he deserves his place in the 3R just like the others.

Goffin has a future? Really, wow, I didn't know you were clairvoyant and could see the future. How do you know what his future holds? You don't, period. Brian Baker had a "future" too and look what happened to him. No one can predict the future, so there is no need to talk about it as if it's fact when it's nothing more than your opinion. Moreso, Fee-Lo Green either lives in the past or in the future, yet rarely in the present. He is always talking about how his faves "used to be so good" and how they "used to have weapons" or "used to be good players," etc. Or, he is talking about how certain players "will have a future" or "will accomplish this," etc. That is why his comments are so unnerving and ludicrous. They are based on past or future, but never present. Bottom line, dude, we are in the PRESENT, not the past or the future. What counts is what these players are doing RIGHT NOW, not years ago or years from now. He knows his faves, in the present, are beyond abysmal and have nothing noteworthy to contribute most of the time. Do we even need to point out how all his faves (the ones he hypes non-stop) got ousted early on here at the French? That isn't a coincidence, trust me. It's just bitterness and I am sure it's a hard pill to swallow to hype players all day and then see them lose immediately afterwards:haha: But hey, if you are going to back the irrelevant and muggy challenger types, can you really expect anything else? I always knew there was a reason why he reports all these Challenger results. Those are the only events his faves have an ounce of relevancy in (and even sometimes that is not the case whereas they lose in 1R or 2R). A pressed bitch, no doubt:wavey:

Yes pretty impressive for a guy who is yet to crack the top top 40 to reach the second week of a slam twice, and reach the 3rd round or better at all 4 slams.

Hopefully he can reach another 4th round here and win his first ATP title soon.


:D I agree, quite impressive. Even if he only makes the 4R here, the round of 16 at the French Open is nothing to sneeze at. I hope he can win a title too before he does stop playing. I am really glad he is going to get to play the Olympics though because it will probably be his only chance to considering he is already 30. The Olympics meant so much to him this year and grass is a good surface for him, so I am really happy that he gets to live out that dream. He worked hard to keep his ranking up this year and qualify for that and he accomplished that goal. Much respect for Lukasz and glad to see a male Polish tennis player at the OG.

Quite remarkable stats. Remind me of the thread we had a couple of days ago about grand slam "specialists". He definitely makes the list at that.
