Sam is playing Washington qualifying this week. He won his first match against Sing 6-0 7-5. He will take on the number 2 seed Rhyne Williams for a spot in the main draw. That will be a tough one.

Groth's first ATP win off grass and since 2009. Also his first ATP win against someone in the top 200.

Default Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian

Big serving Groth was not up to the challenge today, throwing down only 10 aces today but serving 5 doubles.
Faced 9 bp's and managed to save 7, but more of a factor was that he was unable to force Raonic to face any any break points. Groth's seconnserve win rate was respectable at 56% but Raonic was up there at converting 70% of his second serves.
Good tournament for Groth.
