Eesh, terrible match. It's like a practice match. Not sure why Herbert is playing singles. The guy is clearly doubles-only. The only balls he can keep in court are down the middle. Whenever Herbert hits to the sidelines, he overhits (he's used to doubles lines). And terrible backhand.

What a moronic comment. Is this the first match you see him play?

Actually, no. I've watched Herbert quite a lot because I like doubles. But the guy simply doesn't have a measurement for singles point construction. He can only keep the ball in court hitting down the line (middle) and has serious problems in cross-court rallies. He also doesn't know how to cover the net in a *singles* context. His singles movement is also weird... because the movement in doubles is different.

The guy is an incredibly good doubles player. But watching Herbert is like watching Paes play singles.
