I think it is surprising that it finished in 3 sets. Disappointed with Bolelli, should've won some sets.

Good match, tough, both are inspired but Llodra was better. Isn't surprise for me.

Too bad Simone
He was up 4-1* 40/0 in the second but missed an easy volley and a df on BP then the match was over

Llodra and Gulbis will be a good match, both in form, and a nice contrast of styles.

I expected more from Bolelli, but Llodra certainly deserved this victory. He has a lovely game to watch, and it's nice to see someone with a classical serve-and-volley style get this far on clay.
Well done, and hopefully he'll be able to do well against Gulbis as well.

It's funny to glance through the post-match commentary, it reads as if the general consensus is that Bolelli has been the model on tour in terms of mental stability -- however wrong that assertion may indeed be.

Everything had to go right for Bolelli to win this match.

Too bad. Winnable match for SB.

Bolelli had his chances in all three sets. The occasion was simply too much for him.
