Levy did not play very well. He also looked like he was walking around the court very gingerly (just before his opponent served out the match, he asked for a time out to get massaged for leg cramps).

I've seen Okun play three times, all victories. I've seen Levy play twice (once in doubles), both times he lost. Levy really never regained the form he had in 2000/2001 after he had hip surgery.
Thanks for the info! I have been told by other posters that they are 2 of the nicest guys around. Glad Okun did well today. He has a shot at Kubot! And I feel for Levy- he had been doing so well prior to the injury.

Yes, it's sad. In some matches I've seen Levy play really well, especially when he moves well. If he can maintain his movement, then he can hang in with the top players. Unfortunately, he can't hold his form for more than a match or two.

I watched Noam's whole match against Starace. His serve looked good; I think he was only broken once, but his backhand is abominable. Seeing that stroke its clear he will never beat any elite players. Also, Starace is atrocious on hard courts, he may have been the worst player in the entire draw outside of a few American wild cards.
Basically he is going to get routed by Kubot.

Well, there's a reason why, at 28, he's still on the challenger level.

But I did see both Okun and Kubot on the 3rd day of qualies. Kubot was basically a hacker. A strong serve but not much finesse to his game. This isn't exactly the barn-burner match that you'll read about in the papers. But I think Okun has a decent shot to win tommorow. Not because I think he's a top tier player. But he does have a much more well rounded game than Kubot.

If Noam has a good day, then he can play very well and has a shot at beating good players. He definitely has the power to hit the ball hard. His backhand is not a liability as he slices and can hit through it. It's all about having a good day. I've seen Kubot, and he has a good serve, but definitely not a dangerous game, he rallies the ball with medium pace. Noam has a good shot.

Noam is in the Final against Sam Querrey at the Lubbock Texas challenger. Sam is a real up and comer so this will be a hard match.

And it was a hard match He lost 6-1 6-4 to Sam.

Spoke to Noam in Cincy this past week. He was there to practice, support his friends, and work out with his coach. He was injured for a while earlier this year, kind of a upper hip/stomach muscle pull. He is looking forward to the USO qualies and hopes to play well there. He is also getting married in October (and I had to tease him about that, being all grown up and settled down now). Not sure how much longer he is going to play, he's so talented it's a shame he hasn't been able to put it all together and make a good run into the Top 100.

Did you ask him what he was going to do after tennis pro days were over?
I asked him one question and got a one sentence response He was probably thinking who the hell is this old woman? I was thinking good grief at least this old woman knows who you are
I wish him well in the USOpen qualies

Saw Okun today. Unfortunately he lost 6-4 6-3. Too bad He couldn't make another run at the US Open, as his days are limited...
