St Petersburg QF : Gimeno-Traver def. Cipolla 6-2 7-5

DGT started well and Cipolla in the 1st set won 0 points on second serve. The only games he won were off breaking DGT's serve.

Second set DGT lost a bit of concentration. Cipolla moved in the court and was junking it up with the slices to get Gimeno-Traver off the baseline. Funny watching them have slice backhand battles.

Cipolla served for the 2nd set, but DGT came back from a double break.

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".

Re: St Petersburg QF : Gimeno-Traver def. Cipolla 6-2 7-5

Watched and expected to see a mugfest. Was surprised that it developed into a decent match of tennis, Cipolla is really great to watch, he has such an aesthetically pleasing game, it looks so natural. If he would be a bit taller, he would probably have been a really good player. The only thing I felt today was as if the better player lost, DGT is really a mug, he has absolutely nothing special in his game. How he made the SF in an indoor event is beyond me...

You're obsessed with the Madrid Chall . DGT didn't expect to make the semis here and he has already covered his points from the Madrid final last season.

Satasonic, go watch another sport. Better player lost when he didn't hold serve at all in the 1st set, won zero points on his 2nd serve and lost after having a double break in the 2nd.

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".

DGT is physically stronger than Cipolla, but he is the much worse player. The only winner he actually managed to get in was the one on match point, all the rest were terrible Cipolla errors. The only advantage DGT had over Cipolla in that match was his forehand.


And whats wrong with Cipolla? He has a unique slicing game, and for a guy of his short height, he does a really good job at the net.

I didnt watch the first set, but indeed- Cipolla has a terrible serve. Its not his problem that he is 172cm and really small in stature, its not like he can serve 200kmh all over the place.

Re: St Petersburg QF : Gimeno-Traver def. Cipolla 6-2 7-5

As for Cipolla, yes he throws a lot of junk and different shots around makes it a challenge to play against him. I have nothing against that as he doesn't have the power. So has to use his speed and other tools to compete.

Lets see Sata, you are still talking tripe. DGT has a better serve and as for his forehand, well if he didn't have that then he wouldn't be on tour. Last thing I knew about this sport, got to use your strengths to win matches. No style points in this sport, some people need to learn this.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Its obvious, tennis isnt about good points, because otherwise players like Nadull and Djokomug wouldnt be ranked 1, ever.

Just a question- Do you reckon this match would have panned out differently were it on clay?

I couldn't disagree more. For a Spaniard, Gimeno-Traver has quite a nice game to watch and if he wasn't such a head-case, he would be ranked a lot higher. It's good to see him do well this week.
