Wow! 3rd round of GS for a second time in his career. Good match overall from Kubot, Giraldo broke down after 3rd set. It seems Kubot played a lot of winners and went to the net quite often.
This match will let Kubot to advance to 67-68 position in the ATP ranking. It will also most probably allow him to play all Grand Slams this year without qualies.
Next: Youzhny. I thought Youzhny would be tired after a marathon with Gasquet but he seemed perfect today. Shame that Lukasz has to play doubles tomorrow coz he might get tired.
Anyway, I'm 100% satisfied with KuGoat's performance in AO :)

It's another milestone for him, this AO allows him to play Indian Wells and Miami without qualies :banana:

Kubot must have so much confidence right now. :yeah:

I just wonder, why the hell did he leave it so late to start having good results in singles? :p

Try your best against Youzhny. :)

I think in Kubot's case in the last 12 months a word "luck" has double meaning. Obviously he can speak about a bad luck remembering defeats to Bellucci, Troicki (twice) and Wawrinka but his draws in Belgrade, Doha and Melbourne it's amazing luck :) Even his draw in Paris which gave him Top 100 for the first time (Andreas Beck in the 1st round, instead of Blake, Berdych, Ljubicic etc.)

I agree, but once more: what Łukasz has to do with it ? Players has no influence on the draws. Kubot is just playing his tennis :D
btw. he could play Robredo in R2, oh sorry I should say he should play but Tommy failed once more...

Santi :sobbing:

But Lukasz :banana:

Two headcases, two players that have underachieved so far in their careers but also two players that are coming into their own. Great to see :yeah:

Good job Kubot I'm happy for him. Just please don't trouble Youzhny before Nole :devil:

OMG Giraldo, what went wrong?! How can you beat Robredo big time and two days later lose big time to this serve-and-volley guy?! :sad:

I was unable to see that match. But congrats for Kubot for reaching the 3rd round though. Hopefully I will see both players in Buenos Aires in a couple of weeks :-)
