Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone won his first round qualifying match over Amer Delic 4-6 7-6(5) 6-3, after being down 4-6 2-5! On one hand, it's not good he's falling behind and struggling so much in a first round qualifying match against a player he's superior to. But what's most important is he fought back and he won when he could have easily given up and gone to his next event. Hopefully this is another sign that Simone has the desire and fight in his tennis again.

He plays Florent Serra for a place in the MD, and will have a good chance at a LL position even if he were to lose. A win would put Simone up to #106 in the ranking, and 2 MD victories would likely give Simone a top 100 ranking again. But let's not look too far ahead........hopefully he can win his way into the MD of Miami!

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone won his qualifying match over Serra 7-6(2) 6-4 to qualify for the Miami Masters event! He struggled on serve most of the match but each time he was broken, he broke back. He's been fighting in his two matches, his service numbers haven't been that great, but he's finding ways to compete and win. Simone drew Albert Ramos in the first round of the MD and they will play on Thursday. With a victory over Ramos, Simone will be within a handful of points to the top 100 so he really needs to take advantage of this opportunity and beat Ramos. GL to Simone on Thursday, let's hope he can come away with the victory!

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone lost 3-6 1-6 to Ramos in Miami, so a very disappointing result, obviously. His ranking is provisionally #108 after his run in Miami. He was on the entry list of Le Gosier but pulled out to rest some niggling physical issues so therefore his next scheduled event is Casablanca qualifying, which starts the weekend after next. Hopefully he qualifies in Casablanca, as the draw is weak, and the opportunity for victories in the MD will be strong. He's close to the top 100 but the biggest goal for right now is making the MD of the French direct, which a few wins in Casablanca would do for him. Hopefully with the tour heading to clay full time Simone can attain some consistently decent results!

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone took a WC into Barletta this upcoming week and plays Bedene in R1. Bedene is the defending champion so it won't be an easy match for Simone to win. If he does so, however, he has a decent draw to make a deep run. Hopefully he can get past Bedene and have a good tournament in Italy, and assure himself a position at the French Open.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

3-6 6-7(5) loss to Bedene in Barletta.

He hit the ball pretty well, served pretty well, and would have beaten most players in the draw. But he wasn't consistent enough overall and Bedene kept making Simone hit the extra shot, as well as counter-punched to a great affect himself. Disappointing result, his form is getting there, but the confidence isn't.

Next tournament is Casablanca qualifying this weekend.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Despite moving bacjwards I think his tennis has been getting better again at this point of the season. He needs to remain consistent though. He is into Round 2 of Bastad aswell, but plays Ferrer. Should still get some ranking points anyway even if he loses.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Positive times for Simone! 18-2 on the Challenger circuit so far in 2014.
Hopefully on his way back into the top 100.

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

Simone has been playing great tennis all through qualifying, but a harsh draw means he's facing Ferrer in the second round.
Up first on Suzanne-Lenglen tomorrow. Hope the crowd gets behind him and he can make it a great match!

Re: Simone Bolelli aka Superbol

What a great start to 2015! Winning grand slam doubles title with Fabio.
He rose almost 200 places in the rankings last year and is now back in the top 50 - where he belongs.

Hopefully this positivity will finally lead to a top-10 win this year. Go Simo!
