Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

He won 6-4 6-2 over Martin Fischer in the QF. Now he plays fellow Italian Vagnozzi in the SF. A great opportunity at the final. Hopefully he can continue his form and win this challenger, and takes the good form into next week at the ATP level.

Wins the Challenger. Nice victory and he can be confident going up against Almagro, a true test, in the 1st round at the Roma Masters.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

So happy that Simone got the victory! And he did it by fighting even though he wasn't in the best of form. That's the Simone of old. Slowly but surely, you can see the life coming back into Simone, the motivation is starting to rediscover itself. Hopefully he can translate that to ATP Rome next week. Almagro will be very tough but if Simone is on form, anything can happen.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

With winning the challenger, Simone also now has an opportunity at making the Wimbledon MD direct. It would be his first MD direct slam event since AO 2010. This has been a great turn of events for him when it looked like he was sinking far, hopefully it continues.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

A win or two in the Masters could probably take him to Wimbledon direct, but Almagro will be very tough, especially after the long week he has had in the challengers.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

107 in the world after winning the CH. Is the Wimbledon Entry List this week? Would basically mean he should be at Wimbledon without having to qualify.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Yes, it's this week. It will be 50-50 whether he makes it or not, but really, I'd prefer he stick to clay challengers anyway.

I'll be at Wimbledon so prefer he is there so I can go watch him in person for the first time.

Really bad start against Almagro who is pushing him back and making no errors.

Simo needs to do much more. Looks like he is just training and rallying with no gameplan.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Better 2nd set even went a break up. In danger of losing now. He has the talent just way too erratic.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Lost 60 75. Just terrible performance. Better get his shit together. How many UEs you want to do? I guess it's to RG qualifying now.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone and Fabio made the doubles SF in Rome, beating #2 seeds Mirnyi/Nestor and traditional doubles team Lindstedt/Tecau, before losing to Isner/Querrey. Based off reports, Simone was dominant in the matches, and Fabio was less good. If that's true, that means that the game is still there clearly, but the head isn't. It's all a confidence issue for Simone at this moment. Hopefully he'll start believing in himself because he has so much potential.

RG qualifying draw comes out on Monday so we'll have to see what the draw holds before making predictions. Hopefully he gets an easy one.
