Robby's first serve % is awful (47) but he won 83% of his 2nd serve. Lots more than his first serve.

Default Re: Robby: Hard head on the hard courts for the US Open series

I have to say, I was hoping there would be a tie-break in the first set to see what would happen there... Robby was 2 points away from getting it there, but got too jittery, and Andy broke at the only chance he got in that set...

Robby seemed less patient after that... Andy was growing in confidence and stayed pretty patient most of the time, not making a lot of errors. Robby made one too many errors in the 2nd set, hitting into the net, especially when Andy would hit the ball clean across the net and it appeared as though Robby was forced to return volleys from a bad position. It didn't help that Robby seemed a bit caught off gaurd some of the time too ... but anyway, hopefully Robby will take the positives from this tournament with him, and take the negatives and learn from them! I'm hoping Robby can carry some momentum into the next tournament!

Considering the year that he has had so far, Robby did well to get to the semi-finals here. Hopefully, he will keep this up for the rest of the summer.

On to LA where he will play Justin Gimelstob in the first round (because somebody in LA hates me...).

I agree. I hope Robby takes away the positives from his week at RCA and does well for the rest of the summer. That horrible loss at AO really weaked havoc on Robby's confidence and he is just now starting to get it back so I hope he keeps getting better.

Well, it's ridiculously hot, humid, and rainy here in Los Angeles today... I'm sure Robby is feeling right at home.

It's disappointing that Robby lost his semifinal match against Andy, but this was a good and successfull tournament for him. He won 3 matches in a row for the first time this year and made it through some tough situations. A semifinal appereance is a great start into the US Open series and I wish him all the best for the tournament in Los Angeles next week.

Hopefully so! I think he is getting back to the shape he was formerly in... The NBC commentators said that Robby had gotten the staph infection while in FRANCE (in May??), I think, and had been trying to treat it throughout the grass season... apparently this plagued him up until Newport. I'm sorry that happened to Robby, but now that he seems to be better, I hope he can keep playing well and keep his fitness level up, and maybe good things will happen for him again.

Robby isn't scheduled to play on Monday, so it looks like he will play on Tuesday... hopefully during the day like all of his Indy matches

Nope, we're not going to the night session But he'll warm up a little before, so we'll probably be there to see that if he does it on the on-site practice court
