WWW AO R1: Bellucci vs. Sela?

This looks like a fun matchup, Sela can do some serious damage on the ground/ Bellucci can get going on serve a little bit and can also really stick with Sela on the ground

Sela in 4 or 5. He sucks against short players.

And also...not to "hit you while your down", Sela came from behind to root Bellucci in 5 sets not long ago in last years US Open.

Wow I completely forgot about that, Bellucci was a pretty big favorite if I remember at 1.5ish and I remember the crowd was really into that match tons of Brazilians and tons of Israelis rooting for both of them and it ended up with Sela just trashing him with that 5th set bagel.

Plus after Wimbledon, Bellucci skipped Hamburg where he had good results and decided to go to the hardcourts and his record was horrible going 4-10 before losing to Sela again at the ATP challenger tour finals in Brazil...

Really interesting matchup but the more I look at it the more trouble Bellucci seems to be in, I'll be interested to finally see this guy back on a clay court

One of the most exciting R1 matches for me.

This is not going to be a straight setter.

Re: WWW AO R1: Bellucci vs. Sela?

Oy. I hope plenty of Israelis show up to cheer him up, because he wouldn't have won in the states without the vocal support (and the on-court coaching, but lets not go there).

Seriously now, he can beat Belluci, but he'll have to be focused.

He has great chances to get a show-court if he gets to Monfils, better not mess it up.

Luckily for Bellucci there are tons of Brazilians living in Australia too.

Should be a fun atmosphere.

Well well.. I hope Bellucci wins in 4 but of course I won't be surprised if he doesn't.

Never ever give up
