Manerbio CH: Volandri chokes massively, loses to Lopez Jaen 4-6 6-3 5-7

Volandri couldn't get a bp during the first set.
was 4-6 1-2* down, broke back. Lopez Jaen couldn't hold serve once after that, Volandri got 5-0 up. Broken to 15, Lopez Jaen holds afterwards. Volandri blows 4 mps at 5-2, gets broken, wastes 2 more at 5-4. Lopez Jaen breaks again, Volandri wastes 2 bps in the next return game. Lopez Jaen holds eventually. Serving at 5-6, Volandri has 3 game points(40-0), blows them and Lopez Jaen converts on his first mp.

I don't think anyone really cares about this.

Volandri really sucks these days, at his peak he was a solid player agaisnt lesser guys but now he seemingly stuggles with anybody, although this was most likely a 50/50 match with Volandri being in the form he has been in, he made a final last week where he lost to Koellerer but nothing else significant, the choke is bad but the result is not really suprising at all.

interesting that most people don't seem to be surprised when the favourite turns a match around, gets 5-0 up in the decider and still loses.
Come on, everybody freaks out when Safin blows a break lead against ouanna or lapentti. I think its really a shock that volandri blew a 3 break lead in Italy with crowd support considering his experience & the quality he once had

5 years ago Volandri could have won from reverse situation. In Vina del Mar (QF) was 0:5 (15-40)* to Kuerten in the final set, then 6:5* (40-30) and lost the match in a tie-break 4-7
