Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Dancevic is a good draw, he got a better draw than he would have received had he beaten Veic. Dancevic serves big and is a shotmaker like Simone, just not quite as good. The return is most likely going to be a problem for Simone so he'll need to be more secure on serve than he was in qualifying.

He has a good shot to win that match and then likely Murray. If you are going to play any of the top guys, Murray is the one you want on this surface. He's also injured with his groin. First things first, he has to take advantage of the LL and beat Dancevic.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Lost to Murray, but I think his game is definitely coming together, what missing now is the true confidence to finish off sets and matches like this.

Whats next for Simo?

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Playing at Nottingham challenger this week. Would be nice if he can get quite far as the ranking points are needed now. He is 121 in the world so top 100 is easily in sights if he performs as he did v Murray in RG but taking the big points.

Plays Cipolla in R1 which is a shame for me However good for Simo as on grass his game should be too good.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone has a good draw, he should make the SF if he plays well. These last two weeks off hopefully have recharged his batteries. He played well v Murray but didn't have the confidence to deliver when he had the chances. Hopefully now he'll do what is necessary in these upcoming events.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone won 6-1 7-6(2). Saved all 5 break points in the match against him.

He plays Edouard Roger-Vasselin in R2 on Wednesday so hopefully he can have two straight days of victories.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone lost to ERV 3-6 6-3 3-6.

Simone had openings in most of ERV's service games throughout the entire match, but never took advantage. Very disappointing result.

Now he'll be playing Wimbledon qualifying next, but may make the MD automatically.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Bolelli won his 1st round qualifying 76 63 I think it was. Decent enough start, but his route will get tougher.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Yes, it was 7-6(4) 6-3 over Amir Weintraub. A closer scoreline than it probably should have been but he got the win.

He plays Simon Stadler of Germany in R2 on Tuesday. Another player he should beat if he plays well but Stadler is a good player and is especially good on grass, so it could be difficult. Hopefully he gets the job done.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Plays Kenny De Schepper in the final round. A good opportunity to qualify.

It's 5 sets so Simone will need to be in good form for a longer level than a regular match. Hopefully, he gets the job done.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Well, sad to report Simone choked badly again. Lost to De Schepper 6-3 6-7(5) 7-6(2) 6-7(7) 2-6.

Simone had a lead in the second and a big lead in the fourth set tiebreaker. Simone was up *4-0 and *5-3 in the fourth set tiebreak. Now we have to wait for a potential LL spot.

Devastating result for Simone, really. You have to ask yourself when all of these losses will catch up to him.

Simone also defends a 110 points from Turin last year, so his ranking will fall to around 140 if he doesn't defend the points. He's about 100 points from the top 100.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone got a LL position and got lucky, he drew qualifier Martin Fischer, and will play the winner of Starace/Wawrinka in R2. Although Fischer is good on grass, Simone has way too many weapons for him if he's playing well, and Simone should win that match. It's a really good draw with good chances for R3 if he plays well. Hopefully he takes advantage.
