Western & Southern Open, Cincinnati
2005, the last time [CR20]Tommy Robredo (ESP) defeated [CR1] Novak Djokovic (SRB). He can celebrate tonight this well deserved victory over the Serb. He fought to the bitter end because Djokovic was just as determined to win this match.
7-6(6), 7-5 was the final score in the upset victory by the Spaniard.
Was it really an upset though? Robredo a seasoned player, once ranked in the top ten, seems to be understanding his potential a lot better now that he is older. He is putting to use ever ounce of this wisdom against the top players these days. One should certainly be prepared for a fight whenever Robredo steps on court, unless of course his body has other plans.
