Sao Paulo QF: Volandri def. Nalbandian 3/6 6/3 7/5

Nalbandian was in doubt whether to tank or not the final set, he did it in the last game

Good match from Volandri. His BH is beautiful when it's on

Saw a little of the third, Volandri was really good, and this is coming from a guy who hates him.

First 2 sets was really high level of play, after losing the 2nd set David looked really tired and began to play poorly in the third. Filo almost blew it.

Btw Volandri on clay has the best one handed backhand on tour by far, it's just amazing!
It's a shame the rest of his game is really poor.
Close match as expected, both are equally good on clay.

Cross court, up the line or overhead... it seems like it was a monster today (only saw the third set).

Nalby was very tired and Filippo was fantastic. His BH was awesome today.

Re: CdS QF: Volandri def. Nalbandian 3/6 6/3 7/5

Drama left and right in this one, the third set was crazy. First Volandri up 4-2, Nalby comes back, looks for sure gonna hold at 40-15, 5-5, that game goes several deuces, some clowning, some beautiful winners, and a DF from Nalbandian after like 6 game points and he gives away the break

Volandri then holds to love and Nalby smashes a racquet and the crowd boos. Heavily. But the handshakes were very gentlemanly.

Re: CdS QF: Volandri def. Nalbandian 3/6 6/3 7/5

Inspite of Nalbandian proved last year that he is finished he showed on here that his best days are over. Not even to win an ATP 250. Sad but true. I hope he can win a DC shield and I can clearly understand why he feels that this is the only shield he can win as he depends of Del Potro on these days. Sad but true.

[B]My hall of fame: Roger Federer-Rafael Nadal-Jo Wilfried Tsonga-David Ferrer-Juan Carlos Ferrero-Tommy Haas- Radek Stepanek-Lleyton Hewitt-David Nalbandian-Guillermo Cañas-Carlos Moya-Pete Sampras-Petr Korda- Kent Carlsson-Richard Krajicek-Karol Kucera-Tim Henman-Alex Corretja-Thomas Muster-Michael Stich-Pat Cash-Patrick Rafter-Darren Cahill-Ivan Lendl-Mats Wilander-Miloslav Mecir-Karel Novacek-Joakim Nystrom-Henrik Sundstrom-Hans Simonsson-Anders Jarryd-Jimmy Connors-Bjorn Borg-Guillermo Vilas.

Re: CdS QF: Volandri def. Nalbandian 3/6 6/3 7/5

There was an interesting moment at 15 all in the 11th game. Volandri missed a cross-court backhand which should have given him the point easily. Nalbandian is a smart player and was stunned because in the next two rallies played two soft-balls on Volandri's backhand only to see two down the line winners.

Wow, Volandri's best ATP result since Buenos Aires 2008. He admittedly was a semifinalist last year in Bucharest but the Challenger-level draw there.
