I said at some events he stayed at backpacker hostels. Most of the ones at this event stayed at other players home. Barton, Duckworth and Reid had a few of the guys staying at their homes.

Robert didn't stay in hostels for all of the events. It was at a few of them. The rain stuffed him up he didn't play for 2 days and couldn't hit at all due to the rain. He was just making basic errors and flat, but not too upset about it.

Kyrgios his parents drove up from Canberra 3 times that's 2,5 hours one way. He played 7 sets yesterday, only by by the last set was he making some basic errors.

I think it offers a big contrast with some big talents we saw in the last five years, but who wasn't involved that much in the game and could suffers the pression to succeed because of that (Gulbis, Tomic, Dimitrov are names that come in my mind).
normal he play with heart he is young player , you will see him when play 1 year on tour he will be same like all other morons on tour ...one day play good second day he don't know to play

Best performance of the week was easily Matthew Barton’s match against John Millman. This section was loaded with Millman who won Burnie, Barton who won Adelaide and Stephane Robert the Frenchman rebuilding his ranking was the finalist in Burnie, lost to Barton in Adelaide and won the Futures in Melbourne. This was the day when it was warm and not humid, which played into Barton’s hands. He was serving out of a tree, didn’t face a break point all match. As he was so comfortable on serve putting pressure on Millman, he was swinging freely and slapping forehand winners for fun getting a lot of purchase off the court. It was one of those days where everything went perfectly and Millman was just outplayed.

As per usual after a big performance Barton couldn’t back that up against Robert. It was very humid and Barton wasn’t serving out of a tree, as Robert got more chances off the second serve he was able to put pressure on Barton with the returns and expose his movement around the court to win this match comfortably. On that performance Robert should win this tournament, since he came through the form section of the draw.

Klein and Kyrgios matches are fun, since there is a lot of verbal stuff going on. Klein has form and Kyrgios doesn’t mind talking to his opponent either. Klein called him a “gorilla” and also after Kyrgios missed a shot then Klein says to him “that’s what you get for cheating on your girlfriend”. There were plenty of attempts to hit the player at the net, all good entertainment for those who like that stuff.

Millman after he lost to Barton. He was asked by Big Ed who is the coolest Challenger supervisor about the umpire’s performance. In classic Millman “she was a poor umpire when I was 18 and she hasn’t improved”.

Robert is a good guy, not a fan of his game but good bloke. He has stayed in backpacker hostels to save on money, too many people think that tennis players have it easy. The very few have a great concentration of the wealth, the majority don’t, but Robert isn’t bitter about it.

Knowing he only has a couple of years left playing he is thinking about the future. He and his coach are looking at a Club Med style academy where they cater to all levels. It’s a way of staying involved in the sport.
Thanks for the reports Amazing that Robert is staying in hostels at this stage of his career but if you see the prize money offered (and not hospitality) it makes sense to lodge on there. Besides there are many descent hostels in Sydney but I hope he is not sharing an 8 bed room one! (I know it could be even worse ) .

Klein has a big mouth but Kyrgios pocket the results as he is in the finals. Are you attending Saturday SF and F?
