Volandri wins Palermo title over Lapentti 5-7 6-1 6-3

Congrats Volandri for winning Palermo after playing in his 3rd final in a row.

Good 2 weeks for Lapentti also, too bad he couldn't win it here, but he has done very well to firmly establish himself in the top 100.

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

He can always play challengers.

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".

It's quite normal that Nico ran out of steam at the end after two great weeks!

Well he can take the year off, it's not like he will be losing any points, then again those 5 pointers will need to be defended.

Take time off now and develop a serve.

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".
