Nico Lapentti serves Simon a bagel and a breasdstick 6-0 6-1 in Palermo

Lapentti

Not bad the guy won the Szczecin Challenger and is now in the semis of Palermo playing either Verdasco or Ramirez Hidalgo.

Lapentti was leading 6-0 5-0 and he couldn't forclose the deal on the double bagel, which was very poor.

A bagel and a breadstick is nearly as good.

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

Simon didn't hold serve once

Still, good news for Lapentti

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

The double bagel would have been better.

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".

Not that I dislike the Lapentti win, but Simon's physical and/or mental state in this match has to be seriously questioned.

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

That's what any semi-regular person would do.

Must have been something wrong with Simon...reminiscent with the Bracciali SF earlier in the year?

Nice win for Nico though...this was definitely a match to leave alone from the start anyway

I don't know if something was wrong with Simon today, but it's not uncommon for him. When he begins to play poorly, it's really ugly. He says it himself, he said it again at the US Open (funnily enough just before his horrible match against Gasquet which was another perfect example - "du meilleur au pire").

Lapentti He had a more difficult run against Starace in Szczecin or that poor player Ulihrach... than against Simon aspiring to top 30

(There surely were reasons why Simon lost so badly )
