Robby, Robby, Robby :rolleyes: Take a look at the names of the players that are in the Tournament. Next take a good look at where you are :eek: I wonder how many times Robby is going to start his Pro Tennis Career over :sad:

Re: I wonder if Robby sees anything wrong with the Delray Beach Entry List?

My question/concern is why isn't he playing the Waikoloa challenger this week... he's GOT to play some challengers - good results in just a couple of them would really help him a lot I think and Waikoloa has a good field. Maybe they'll give him a WC into Delray....

He is in Waikoloa, he got a wildcard. Did something happen since the draw was made?

oops yes he's in the draw, my bad. I didn't see his name in the entry list and just assumed. Well that's good. Thanks

I hope Robby is at 100% this week! He plays Dennis LaJola (USA) in his first match at Waikoloa. I was hoping, if he felt good enough, he would request some wildcards to some challengers like this one... If he loses or retires in Hawaii, well, maybe he can go swim with the dolphins :ras:

What a wonderful picture :lol: My point about Delray Beach is players like John I., Sam Q., even Bobby Reynolds, etc. are in the Tournament's main draw while Robbie is on the Alt. list. May be Robby is going to have to be like Bill Murray in the Movie "Groundhog Day". He will have to keep repeating the start of his Pro Tennis Career until he finally gets it right :p I added the CH into this thread title because we know Robby doesn't need a lot of threads for Tournaments :sad:

Re: Waikloa CH & I wonder if Robby sees anything wrong with the Delray Beach Entry L

Robby won his first match 6-2, 6-4 :) I'm just glad he played a full match this month after exiting the AO. Good luck against Spadea or Udomchoke in the next round, Robby!

(Robby was set to play doubles with Michael Russell, but they withdrew from that...hopefully nothing bad)

Russell has a back injury.... not that that's good, but at least it's not Robby

well, Robby lost his next match against Spadea 5-7, 2-6 :( ...even though he lost to the highest seed left in the draw, I was of course hoping for a better scoreline than this (or at least one where he seemed to be about equal in both sets) :ras:

on to something else...

Maybe Spadea's wardrobe was too distracting ;)

Sadly, even Spadea is wearing boring Prince clothes now :p

Hmm, maybe Robby is a little hurt too, someone from the Dallas challenger posted in that event thread that he turned down a WC b/c of a bad shoulder :confused:

Oh no not another shoulder injury :eek: Why do my favorites end up with shoulder problems :sad: If Robby is healthy, he should win this Match :unsure:

Robby :yeah: He even served up a bagel :yippee:
I wasn't expecting that at all! And I read that he broke at love multiple times to get that bagel. I have to say that I'm much more satisfied when Robby serves a bagel in the final set... it's way sweeter that way :cool:

I thought you would really like that :D How about cream cheese on the bagel :p Robby has another Match he should be able to win. But can he put two wins together :unsure:

I would have been really happy for whoever won this match, but I am soooooooooooo happy for Robby getting a quarterfinal under his belt this year!! I can only hope this isn't the last :unsure: He fought his way to win that first set, and did well to run with it in the final set! 6 Americans in the quarterfinals! :)

I'm not sure how good or bad the court conditions were, but I was very disappointed with Robby's 1st serve percentage throughout the first two sets (he finally did better in the third set)... he made numerous double faults and his serve just wasn't doing any good for him. It was nothing like his 1st round match, where he served MUCH better! Suddenly, out of nowhere, Robby served 3 aces in a row during one of his crucial service games though, and I was like :eek: <- He did well to pull out a victory in that long match!

I didn't expect a quarterfinal here, and likewise I don't expect more than that, but GOOD LUCK to Robby tomorrow!!
