Locals should have put Lorenzi on Centre instead of Ferrero. There were probably more spectators at this match.

First ever main tour win for Lorenzi and doing it for the Steve Buscemi lookalikes.

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".

Congrats to Paolino. Great match.

Too bad we couldn't see it because Italian organizers put him on side court. Probably only in Rome it's possible to put on side court one of the 3 only home players with 2 tv courts available...

Good job to Paolo, since now he will for sure get on the main court to play Soderling. Might be his first and last chance, so it's nice to see a late bloomer doing well, and getting a win in his home country with the home fans.

I wouldn't be too sure, Sod is often sidelined to side courts by out of top10 players until R16.. If it is to happen it will be because of Lorenzi in this case, because Soderling-Montanes wouldn't have been a main court match for sure.

Lorenzi is Italian. The tournament is played in Italy. Lorenzi > Montanes for the organizers...

Mountains having a multi-match letdown after THAT 2nd set vs Verdasco.
