Expected of him to make Quarters. The match against Udomchoke will be difficult but Groth has a big chance given Udomchoke's dodgy form of late and Groth did beat him a couple of weeks ago. If he made the SF it would be difficult for him to beat Mayer though who looks to be in red hot form this week. Hopefully he can do well in Fergana and most importantly the grass season where I think if he plays well he should get some good results.

Default Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian

Pretty impressive loss when you consider that Udomchoke defeated Florian Mayer and Blaz Kavcic in staright sets en route to winning the title. Both had been in very good form. As expected the Fergana entry list is poor. Unfortunately Groth drew Kudryavtsev in his quarter but he should have no troubles progressing to the qf. If he could win his QF he would have a huge chance of progressing to the Final.

Nice straight sets win for Groth in the first round. Has another easy match in the second round that shouldn't pose too many problems.

His schedule this year has gone like this:

Brisbane, Australia
Auckland, New Zealand
Melbourne, Australia
Spain
Spain
Spain
Jersey, Great Britain
USA
Baton Rouge, USA
Ramat Rarasharon, Israel
Busan, Korea
Fergana, Uzkbekistan

When your at the ranking he is you need to travel a bit to guaruntee entry into challengers in order to rise up the rankings. He has made another semi this week in Uzbekistan so hopefully sooner rather than later he gets inside the top 200 and doesn't have to travel so much.

Sam's made the final of the challenger in Fergana with a straight sets win ove Kirillov. Plays Lukas Lacko in the final which is a winnable match but Lacko did beat Udomchoke pretty convincingly so we'll see.

Lets just hope he wins so he can nail that place down in the top 250 and be guarunteed a spot in the Wimbledon qualifying which is the one tournament I think he has a lot of potential to succeed in.

Lacko has been in good form of late by making a couple of futures finals but I think Sam will beat him. Can't wait to see how he goes at Wimbledon.

Default Re: Samuel Groth: The Forgotten Australian

Sam has had a good start to the grasscourt season. Qualified and is now into the second round after he defeated Devvarman. Now has a very winnable second round match against Evans and then after that is drawn to face either Mannarino has has been in bad form or Eaton who Groth should have no trouble accounting for. Big chance to make another SF.

I thought he would have a bigger impact this grass court season but I guess the draws didn’t help him.

He is back to playing the American hardcourt challengers after his unlucky grass court season. Has an easy first round match. Hopefully he can get a few nice draws and string some nice results together.
