This tournament seems it's not even italian. Almost no italians in MD (at least without a WC) and played in Indoor Carpet.
As a matter of fact the vast majority of gardenesi don't even speak italian as their first language, mostly their dialetto ladino and german.
Seppi can't be playing closer to home than in this event, he is truly at home soil and hope he can take advantage of the WC and get the title. Tricky list.
