Solid performance. Bit of a slump beginning of the second, but the result was NID. Very good last game.

Bellucci should have won that second set, he was impressive at times but got too tight on serve, you could tell he was nervous. He needs more experience with matches like this. As far as Nole goes, he was OK, a bit too passive at times.

Another straight sets win for Novak & didn't lose too many games to someone of Bellucci's stature, not bad.

Bellucci is a bit of a choker/idiot really.

Allez!

Solid play from Djokovic, but he must get much better If he dreams about recapturing Rome.

Solid from Djok. Bellucci really does nothing to leverage being left-handed against righties.

Very impressive at the end of both sets, OK but patchy performance overall. Bellucci also had an OK performance, but lost the plot at the end of the match, which is partially due to Nole it must be said.

Watching Verdasco play, Nole really needs to step it up.

That's a bit too much. He just does not deliver against the top guys. Last week Ferrer, now Djokovic.

Yup. I haven't seen much of Bellucci, but from what I have seen here and in Miami, he gets very tight on big points and late in sets.

Well done Nole

From the few minutes I saw, Bellucci needs more work on dealing with situations around the net -- not just volleys, but also the kinds of creative defensive slices needed when the opponent draws you to the net with a drop shot. His baseline game seems solid.

If he plays like this tomorrow, Verdasco will make it to the semis

I don't know if he will beat Verdasco or not, but I am certain that he cannot play any worse than he did in Monte Carlo semi against Verdasco. He was awful...Verdasco didn't have to do shit...in fact he was not even that good, it's just that Novak was way, way worse. In fact, had he played like he did TODAY (which was not his best) he could have beaten Verdasco that day, only cause Verdasco is not in the same league in the mental department. We will see what happens, though. For me it's 60-40 that Novak will beat him tomorrow.

David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

He did what he had to do in the end to win,Bellucci never looked comfortable when leading the scoreHe's got no chance against Nando if he plays like he did today.
