Robert serve/volleys sometimes and is pretty good at it, we'll have to see how it does against tougher competition. The backhand, as I said, is great and he likes to jump through it and come into the net off it. He's also a good returner, especially off that BH side.

He does like to play in streaks...he'll be solid and then out of nowhere he'll play 10 points in a row and you wonder who this guy is. He looked pretty comfortable out there during the Bogota challenger, and I believe he's playing a challenger or future this week. Best of luck to him
Coming from nowhere and will make the US Open qualies, not bad coming back from where he was a few weeks ago. He seems to have a good attitude and the backhand is impressive.

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
