I guess this will be a cold summer then too.
Robby always plays his best tennis durning the north american hc swing. He has posted results at wimbly too. He's the poor man's Hewitt, everyone knows that.

He's the poor man's Hewitt, everyone knows that.Not really, he hits a lot Harder than Hewitt, more versatile on his FH. Hewitt's got the better lob, neither are particularly good at net, and I think Robby's serve is a bit better. anyway, good for Robby :)

He's the poor man's Hewitt, everyone knows that.They're anything but alike.
Lleyton, a grinder. Has no sting in his ground strokes, and one of the best volleys on the tour.
Rob has a beastly forehand, and backhand that can erupt at any time.
Serves considerably better. And possibly the worst net game in the top 100.
When favorite going into a match:
Lleyton gains confidence.
Rob breaks down.
Their only similarity is height.
I'd go for Robby ordinarily. . .but he's playing James-- :worship:

Actually Hewitt manages to look somewhat comfortable when he comes to net, of course it's usually when he comes in on his terms. He too manages to pull off some decent drop volleys and stab volleys when forced to. Robby's defense is pretty weak that's the biggest difference and Hewitt is just so much more feisty than the rest of the tour except for Nadal.

Way to go Robby!!! :bigclap:
I didn't expect Hell to freeze over yet!... I was getting used to the "close, but no cigar" thing... Is the universe really okay with this?? :eek:
Robby also won his doubles match today with Jordan Kerr!!! :woohoo: They beat Ljubicic/Bracciali ...Maybe they did so with their hotness... :aplot: :drool:
So Robby faces James on Court 1 tomorrow... Even if he loses, he will do so against a Top 10 player for once... it'll be the first Top 10 player he's played all year... I love James, but Robby is the underdog, and could use this win more, but I'm proud of both of them, and that feels good to say! :D
