Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Never thought much of Robert's game, but he looks truly horrendous right now. Pippo isn't even playing well.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

I don't think Pippo could beat a competent player with his form today. Not pleased.

Good final game from Pippo.

6-3 Volandri first set.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Robert is playing a lot better in the second set. Pippo is still making too many mistakes but Robert is hitting some good winners.

He's got the weirdest movement, though, he really hugs the baseline even when on the defense. Very awkward player as always. He's got some Simon in him with his counterpunching.

Horrible easy miss from Robert. He'll probably get broken now.

CLASS forehand from Pippo to break! Serving for the match now. The forehand to forehand rallies are all Volandri. Robert's FH technique is pretty disastrous.

Volandri def. Robert 6-3 6-4

He'll need to be better tomorrow. The B/C level he's had this week I don't think will be enough to win the event.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Pippo did what he had to and handled his business...him and Klizan should really square in the final here
