Miami QR1:  Bolelli def. Delic 4-6 7-6(5) 6-3
Simone came back from 4-6 *2-5 down to win. Lost his opening service game of the match, got the break back for 3-*2 in the first set, but was broken to lose the set. Second set he got broken at *2-3 to 30 and Delic held to love for a 5-2 lead. Looked over, but Simone held to love and broke to 15 to stay in the match, then took at *4-1 tiebreak lead. Unfortunately, he lost that lead and it got back to 5 all before Simone won back to back points to win the breaker.
Third set, Simone saved 15-40 to hold for 2-1 and then broke the immediate next game and held from there to win. Awesome victory for the Italian. Exactly the type of victory he needed in his career to boost his spirits, renew his fighting attitude, and give him energy and the knowledge of realizing he can win close matches.
