Pathetic result from Filippo. Had his chance serving at 30-15 to hold serve in the 3rd.

Tough one for Berdych.

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".

Of course Volandri is a mug on grass, so no need to draw any conclusions about Berdych's form already. Still good to see Berdych come through so easily, especially as his performance in Halle was rather questionable, as he could have easily lost his first round against Bemelmans over there, and the rest of his matches weren't all too convincing either. Good job Birdy, keep it going.

Expected result. Pippo has better places to be than this tournament. Turin is next week, it's an 85K, and we all know how Pippo gets up for the Italian challengers. This was just a formality. Onto bigger and better things.

Berdych looked okay, backhand return was awful though.

his draw is basically a bye to the QF unless Fish can do something

Why the hell does a guy like Volandri even play here? Pathetic.

Solid from Tomas, really. Forehand and backhand are still far from being perfect, he's lacking a bit of artillery and net play, but he's improving. Of course Volandri is one of the easier opponents on grass, but this was better than his matches in Halle, served well and looked okay from the ground. Solid start.

Yes, the challengers will be much more interesting than this event likely will be by this time Monday. Don't need to see the same guys over and over again.

More interesting? Possibly...

Bigger and better things... no.

For Pippo, yes, playing a big challenger in Italy>Wimbledon. Better surface for him, he's at home with his people, he has more self-belief, and he can gain more points from winning since he isn't going to go far on grass. This loss was a mere formality for Pippo. On to the next one.
