Re: Palermo final: Volandri leads 6/0 0/0 against Andreev

What is that, Filo's fourth bagel of the tournament? He's on fire all right, but he still has to put Andreev away. Forza F-Vo!

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Unbelievable! He is so in the zone this week. Why can't he just pretend he's playing in Italy in other tournaments?

I'm trying to watch this online but it's not connecting.

4-1 in the 2nd set for Andreev. Looks like they'll split.

This is best of 3, right?

Best of 3 sets it is Leo.

Vamos Igor, win this title you tactical genius.

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".

C'mon Igor! Overwhelm him with your court positioning

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron

Re: Palermo final: Volandri leads 6/0 0/0 against Andreev

My radio for this match is slightly behind. I just heard Andreev win the 2nd set now.

This would be so disappointing for Volandri to lose a 2nd straight Palermo final, especially this year with him being in the zone and barely losing games all week long. However, Andreev also has a poor record in finals and he could use a title again.

Vamos Igor serve well and break down Pippo's forehand, you took out the Italian I liked, now do it again.

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".

Is that how he turned the match around, by picking on Volandri's forehand?

Andreev definitely has the service advantage in this match and I'm afraid he may have gotten into a good rhythm by now, which is serious trouble for Filippo.

I can't see this match sadly, it's just Volandri's backhand is his best shot, so either he has made Pippo hit volleys or he is serving well.

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