Tursunov may not be in great form, but it's an awesome win for Flavio

Good win Mr. Onion I think Tursunov had SP at *5:3 in the third.

Pathetic from Dima, but Cipolla got rewarded for his foghting spirit(can't believe i am saying this)...

Though he has zero chances against Haas...

Re: AO R1: Cipolla [Q] beat Tursunov [29] | 4-6 6-2 7-6 7-5

So the Italian won the battle of the grouches? Was it played in a good spirit, or did Cipolla refuse to shake Tursunov's hand or did the Russian try to pull the umpire out of his chair? Or have they turned over a new leaf for the new year and started to conduct themselves like professionals?

Good to see the ballbasher hit the dust, at least.

I know, I saw the USO match. I was just referring to the fact that Tursunov is often moody on court, and Cipolla's debut on the big stage suggested likewise. So I was speculating as to how their peronalities interacted during the match.

I gather you've seen a lot more of Cipolla than me, so you'll know his better side, but all I saw at the end of that USO match was a bad loser who couldn't concede defeat graciously.
