An epic 3rd round match between two qualifiers who both seem to be playing very well. Who do you think will win? I think it's very 50/50 and unpredictable match. Kubot has been in 4th round of a slam before but he's lost 7 matches in a row against left-handers.

Champion number 1

Falla destroyed Poto and on that form I think he will win.

Hopefully Kubot in 4.

I have nothing against Kubot or Falla, both defieted top 20 opponents here, but overall is really unfair that one of this two will be in 4R and Delpo won´t.

What a showdown between two heavyweights.

05-26-2011, 01:46 PM
i still cant believe that this is a 3rd round match

credit to them for both playing some good tennis to get here...i think falla has looked more impressive so far though so i'll say falla in 4

If you want fairness you should take the ranking and put top seed as the winner, #2 seed as the runner up and so on. I think Lalo could have advanced very far, but he jumped on Fed.

As for the match, the only thing I can predict is choking leading positions.

I don't know, great opportunity for both players to get the best Grand Slam result. 50/50 match.

Too bad one of them has to be in R4.

@Poles, what is 'come on!' in Polish?

I thought that it's "davai" thus I asked... IMO "dawaj" in Polish sounds unnatural to get some positive vibes, it's poor attempt to take a word from similar language instead of inventing something more proper to your own. I've been playing tennis for 20 years and never heard "dawaj" on tennis court :o

I scream "come on!" or "tak jest!" ;)

kubot is mentally tougher, should win

05-26-2011, 03:02 PM
i think falla can win in 4 sets.

05-26-2011, 07:50 PM
kubot in 4

I'm rooting for Kubot for probably the third or so time ever, purely for ranking reasons. He's already solidly top 100 with little to defend these next months, so I'll give him yet another chance to prove to me and everyone that he's actually a top 100 player or if it's just another irregular run from him.

I watched the match between Falla and Del Potro and Falla was disgustingly bad

That's because Falla plays well and is motivated/mentally in the right mindframe for about 4-5 weeks out of entire seasons.

05-28-2011, 06:41 AM
Kubot in 4

05-28-2011, 06:55 AM
Is this a challenger event??

Kubot in 5

Typical MTF response.

Hopefully Falla wins, but looks completely unpredictable to me. Two bad players. Falla is better but he is out of form, probably in the worst form for years, and still he could get his best week of his life :spit:
