Re: ''Too good Alessio, too good''

He bitched about the court when he was down 0-2 in that Bedene match. They fixed the court and broke the momentum.

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".

Re: ''Too good Alessio, too good''

Di Mauro v Srichaphan, Rome 2004, still the worst tennis match I've witnessed in the decade I've followed the game.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

The poster bjurra he saw Srichaphan vs. Carlsen at Barcelona and the Srich won 6-2 6-1, this was a clay court clown clinic.

Re: ''Too good Alessio, too good''

I watched him in Casablanca CH and Meknes CH
He's good, but he's old and I think he'll be retiring very soon

Re: ''Too good Alessio, too good''

I watched all his matches in Monza. Somehow he managed to frustrate all the much younger opponents by his consistency. He made Guez look so dumb on that court.
To my surprise he also totally outplayed Greul, poor Greul didn't know what was happening.
In the final he played Reister who usually prefers quicker exchanges, he made Reister moonball so much

My first personal experience with Alessio was in Szczecin 2005 where he played Calleri on the side court and Calleri was going pure nuts, received two warnings, well he won, but it cost poor Agustin much nerves.

Alessio supports Juventus but was caught at the press conference of not being aware of their schedule.

Re: ''Too good Alessio, too good''

I think he was also disqualified for betting in the past.

This Alessio is (too) good.
