Lol, did anyony actually watch the match? Bellucci had an ankle injury since the end of the 1st set. In the following sets he could barely move and was serve-volleying every single point. He was very brave to stay in the match until the end.

I mean yes Bellucci was injured since 1st set, but like erickmartins said i give Bellucci credit for at least staying in the match. As for Filo, he played very well especially in the first set, he troubled Thomaz just like Thomaz troubled Filo, it was an even 1st set, but then Thomaz just squeaked out the first set. But then when he had a chance to go up 1-0 in the second, he clapsed and didnt play better the rest of the match, kudos to Filo for stepping up his game when he needed it. Thomaz lost in the end. I hope he can take some needed rest for his ankle injury he needs it

A shame that Francis can't be around to celebrate the win of his favourite player.

Volandri is playing very well in this tournament. I expected this
I don't think he'll stand a chance against Almagro though

not a great display of sportmanship from the crowd at the end when Volandri was thanking them

as for Bellucci he should have retired at the end of the second set.

was going to say the exact same, was pretty heroic in those 2 games in the third from Bellucci tbh there was like 14 billion deuces on his service games whilst Volandri was basically holding in like 6 seconds.
