Sam has definately been the quiet achiever of the 07 season!!

And started this year off well with a win in the opening round of qualies at adelaide over Lukas Rosol, Ranked 272 and today plays 149th Oliver Marach of Austria!!

He lost to Marach 6-7(7) 6-4 6-1...good effort...

I reckon he'll be top 150-200 in the next 12 months

Aside from the obvious reasons, I enjoyed this match. Got the impression he is a good guy, and his serve was unbelievable. Even Oli said he just had to keep him on court to see if he would get tired [I guess to serve more like an average player :lol:].

Quite supportive of the other Aussies too, though I guess there isn't a whole lot to do in Adelaide at that time of year/in 40'C heat.

I really hope that Jarmila and Samuel will spur each other on to bigger and better things in '08.

:banana::eek: Sam Groth just defeated Janko Tipsarevic 7-6, 6-4 and will play either Martin Fischer or Fredrik Nielsen for a spot in the main draw.

Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian
 
Now that is a result! Tipsarevic is very very good! This may awaken the jokers at TA from their slumber!

OZTENNIS 06-15-2008 02:01 PM

Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian
 
And he has qualified for the main draw!
he won his final round 7-6 6-4...

Plays Jamie Baker (a wildcard) in the first round of the main draw...
A good draw IMO, with a win quite possible...regardless of the result he will have cracked the top 300 :)

And in doing so, he will become the 12th Aussie man to rank in the top 300, an obvious improvement in recent times...he is also one of 18 men in the top 400, looks like we are getting some depth back in men's tennis :cool:

Now for some more top 100 players...Sam can be one of them :armed:

Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian
 
i didn't realize he beat tipsy, great effort. Hopefully he can do well in the MD

Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian
 
defeats Baker in straights

round 2 versus Gilles Simon

anyone seen him play live? I know he's a great server, but what about his groundstrokes, volleying, movement etc. ?

Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian
 
wow this is really surprising that Groth has qualified and won a MD match at ATP level usually Grothy is losing in QF of Futures this is a huge step up and lots of $$$ points and experience well done to him yay keep going
