Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol
Well, Simone choked really badly today, losing 1-6 6-3 5-7. He was up a break in the third, dominant in the final two sets, until it got tight, where he collapsed. Lost his serve to 15 at *3-2 and lost it to love at *3-4. He then broke back at 3-5, struggled to hold for 5-5 and saved MPs (double faulted at 30-30), then DFd to lose the match after being up 40-0 at *5-6.
This is the type of match that will devastate Simone. He was looking good in that third set, but he failed horribly to make the most of his opportunities, proving that he still is not in a position mentally to take advantage of his talent. I want to be upset, but I'm more disappointed and disturbed. Simone really needs to look at himself in the mirror and find some heart and self-belief, because losing to players like Veic simply is inexcusable.
