    I remember someone telling me there's a college player infamous for making bad calls while playing college tennis. Is it him?

    he should go to 2-handed backhand. that 1-hander look so unstable and erratic

    Groth looks like he used to play another sport and then later on picked up tennis. Is that right?

    I think he is a Aussie rules football player. He tried to run over Federer in order to be #1

    He quit pro tennis to try his hand at Rugby, now he's back to tennis. Looks like he's very inflexible, probably from all of that bulk he's carrying around, especially off the backhand.

    I believe he played for Williamstown, which is a very good VFL team.

    Whatever happened to Thiemo de Bakker? I used to think he was on his way to big things and now he's got nothing.

    there has to be because there is camaras out there. but I haven't figured it out yet. Steve Johnson from USC up a set on Sweeting and Talented Berankis blows away some poor guy 6-2 6-1. he will be dangerous in main draw.

    To think, Steve almost went out in 1st round. He had match points against him in the 3rd set against 16 year old KID. He barely won 14-12 in the 3rd set.

    Sweeting and Ilhan eliminated is a shock, but Berankis is surely rebouncing from the setback. Without Nadal, Berankis and Dimitrov are the two players to watch.

    I never thought Sweeting would beat Johnson. Sweeting has a $hitty serve for someone 6'5". No weapons, IMO.

    Sweeting has not yet been able to fully apply his talent. He is a talented player with a rich complex personal life that has not yet permitted him to fully focus on tennis.
