Wimbledon R1: Seppi def Montanes 6-4 6-4 7-5

Good stuff.

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".

Montañes on grass is not the worst draw. Has good chances against either Blake or Baghdatis next round.

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".

Seppi is unbeatable on grass.

Seppi becoming a true grass legend

Being serious, a good draw and he didn't fall into the trap of winning a tournament the week before losing in r1 of a slam. Keep going Seppi.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Seppi really taking advantage of his draws so far and playing some great tennis along the way. I hope he can beat Baggy/Blake next round

Re: Wimbledon R1: Seppi def Montanes 6-4 6-4 7-5

Andreas has improved his service it seems. 12 aces, 66% first serves, 75% first serves won. Good stats, he's been getting broken less during this win streak and hitting a healthy number of aces. This is a good match-up for him on grass and winning Eastbourne will have given him confidence. Definitely has a good shot in his next round.

Albert just isn't quite the same guy he was in 2010.

Montanes is so bad anymore. Any ability outside clay is gone, and he's not even that good there

Seppi is getting close to the top 30 again. I don't think Albert will ever be as good as he was in 2010.

Yes indeed, I sure am weird. I must be the only one on MTF to dislike a player.
