Re: Gulbis, Lapentti, Bolelli, Llodra - one of them in RG QF

I think it'll be Bolelli. It would cap off a really great clay season for him. Llodra will be a very tough customer though. He's been playing great too and he'll have the crowd behind him. But only time will tell.

It would be great heap for Gulbis, but I doubt he'll manage. Lapentti is much more of an experienced player and that is just obvious

Re: Gulbis, Lapentti, Bolelli, Llodra - one of them in RG QF

Four very good players, Gulbis is expected to be a future top20, Lapenti comes back but he's a very difficult opponent on clay, Bolelli is a gret young player and Llodra has found something new this year and he exploits his great attacking game much better.

For his game (and nationality) I would like to see Llodra go through, otherwise maybe Gulbis, he has to shine pretty soon...

Lapentti and it would be good to see as well, one less ball basher is always good.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Bolelli was the favorite to be a quarter finalist for many people before the tournament. I don't think anything has changed now.

Bolelli's returns vs in-form Llodra? This is a tricky one

Gulbis or Bolelli I hope but any of these could get there.

Re: Gulbis, Lapentti, Bolelli, Llodra - one of them in RG QF

Is it possible for Djokovic to have an easier draw? Even Rome was not this easy?

Wow.

I thought whoever won between Tipsarevic and Lapentti would make the quarters and i'm not changing my mind now.
Bolelli has a good chance.

Yes i agree, and he will have to struggle with the crowd too. The last and only time they played against each other he could not return any serve. But it was two years ago and indoor.
I still think and hope Bolelli will beat him.

I know, sickening isn't it?

I think Lapentti has a great chance out of this bunch. He's been extrememly consistent lately and is the best talent out of the 4 on clay. Llodra could be dangerous but I doubt he can keep up this good level of play.
