That is nice to see, and I wish some other american based hard court up and coming challenger players would give it a try, as for Pippo, as a claycourt specialist, there is no way he can get trashed by this indian fellow, even if he played with one leg and with one arm......
Well big Sam Querrey has had a go playing nearly the whole season last year and did well in Monte Carlo.
Somdev has that great commodity confidence, if it was sold it would be worth more than gold and truffles combined per kg. At the same time many of the players haven't figured him out yet, so that helps him.
I think India and Romania are playing in DC, so this would be a reason that he is playing in Bucharest.
