Rome R2: Seppi def. Isner 2-6 7-6 (5) 7-5

Great effort from the South Tyrolean sex machine after the slow start. Played very good tennis, didn't get pissed off with the poor break point conversion rate 1/11. The drop volley to bring up match point was class.

Even managed to serve it out and lively Italian crowd.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Just one world: WOW

Andreas fought hard to get this after a flop start of the match. He didn't give up, even when John's serve was demolishing all his various tries. I am so proud of him, really.

John I really hated his serve today He was far from his best, but no shame in losing against Andy

Oh, and the crowd This event is great, thank you all.

Well I wouldn't get pissed at the poor BPC rate, as Isner is the best at saving BP's on tour.

For me,Isner is a threat to the top players on any surface but on the other hand the lower ranked players are always a threat to him.

Isner had no business being in the 2nd round to begin with.

How did this clay mug beat Roger on clay?!
The people who were responsible for the court in that Davis Cup round should be fired!!!

Congrats Seppi.

He's pacing himself for Davis Cup in September. You know John can't afford to expend too much energy before then if he is going to beat Nadal and Ferrer on clay in Spain.
