DC QF: Seppi def. Pospisil 5-7 4-6 6-4 6-3 6-3 (ITA 1-0 CAN)

Vital win for Seppi, he had his customary slow start but the sexiness of the South Tyrolean got him over the line.

He even served out the match easily.

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".

Tough one to lose after such a strong start...

Pospisil didn't really deserve the two-sets-to-love lead for a start, so this is the right result.

The Canadian went missing in the fourth and fifth set, he didn't create a single break point opportunity.

Good win for Seppi, lays down the foundations for Fognini to hopefully steal a point and finish this tie on day one.

now i'm relieved, this could've been almost a career changing defeat for Andreas with the way things were going the first two sets. as usual, he was extremely nervous for the first hour of play, lots of silly mistakes and playing very 'tied up', without being able to relax and let his groundstrokes flow.

fitness did it in the end too and that's big for his expectations on these type of matches, when his game isn't clicking he has the ability to fight through some difficult stages and ultimately outlast these type of opponents.

not impressed by his performance, but happy he got the job done. Huge win, like every must-win one.

FORZA ITALIA!!

Second time that Seppi has come back from 0-2 down in Davis Cup.


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".

Pospisil did deserve to be 2 sets up,he played solid tennis and Seppi was terrible,luckily he picked it up and played ok for the rest of the match.
Mugnini isn't beating Raonic.This tie depends on doubles,which I think Canada will take.

sucks to lose that after having a 2 set lead.

Doesn't really change anything though, expected result. Doubles will likely decide. And even if we don't get that we have a chance in the 5th rubber.

On the balance if play, the first two sets should have been split. Yes, Seppi was playing messily, but Pospisil wasn't doing anything special as you say, he was just 'solid'. First set in particular should have gone to the Italian.

I said 'hopefully' Fognini beats Raonic, it wasn't a prediction of any kind like you are making it out to be.

They should put Levine against Fognini if it goes to a live 5th.

Tough loss to recover from.

dude, Fognini's level of inspiration this weekend is the 'x factor' here and what will determine this tie's fate.

Pospisil appeared to get tired after the second set. Just a different man in the 3rd set.

Pospisil was serving well and taking advantage of what Seppi was gifting him.
In the third set once Seppi got it together,he was in control and that was it.

On this court even if Fognini is inspired he might take a set of Raonic but that should be it.As for the reverse singles,he is the fav but you can't take anything for granted with him.

I mainly meant 'inspired' in order to carry old Bracciali in the doubles on sat hopefully he can trouble Raonic, but unlikely being realistic..
