Well deserved. I like Falla. One of the best low-rank players to watch.

I hope he can take out Chela. He has the game to, so why not?

Congrats to Falla, almost choked it, but faced the Kubot we have known for years, the one who cannot handle the pressure and expectations.

I think it helped Falla a lot he was serving first for most of the match. I suspect the score would have been reverse if otherwise (knowing Falla's head).

Hahaha!! Mental giant this Kubot!! Serving to Falla's set means always a loss of this game:lol:

Excellent match for first 3 sets, then Falla went on a run of 6 games to have a break in the 4th.

So passive when he tried to serve it out, best way for him was to break.

1st Colombian ever in a 4th round of a GS.

Kubot can thank this only himself...
second set: lost due to double fault
third set: served for the set
fourth set: last game :help: He had *40-15, DF again...

v

He should win but I won't courting how many hours was he on court, but a lot... :hug: He won 5 matches here, lot of long matches. But good tournament for him. :yeah:

Even so congrats Falla, he played well.

Good job dispatching the Mugbot, nice to see a Colombian do well.

I'll be cheering for Chela next though.

Good result for the sport.

Hopefully Kubot fails to qualify for Wimbledon now. So happy for Alejandro, so much talent, finally recognizing it. I think he has a pretty good shot v Chela.

Don't worry, his body doesn't like the too much match. I'm not sure he will play acceptably there and I'm happy if he won't be injured. :sad:

What's with all the Kubot hate? I thought you guys liked served and volley.

:haha:

When he showed up first on the ATP level he was very popular on MTF and almost didn't have any haters. But check the thread "why do people on MTF change their opinions so fast" - you might find a few answers :).

As long as he doesn't make the USO MD directly, I'll be OK. Then he can make the top 100 for all I care.

:haha:

Because he is overrated, has no real game, shitload of luck and is insanely arrogant and has nothing to back it up. Enough?

And personally I hate every Pole player, it just happened. Have nothing against people from Poland.

Falla is a pleasure to watch on a good day.

And after struggling through qualifying he has a real shot at reaching the QF.
