Sousa basically broke himself and now it's 5 all second set.

Alund def. Sousa 6-0 7-6(3)

Sousa played a bad tiebreak with errors, and Alund hit some great shots. He was the more consistent, better shotmaker and deserves the win here.

Re: Week 26 : Milan (Entry List)

Ciric's inconsistency seems to be the only consistent thing about him. Didn't have him down to win a match this week, and he's closing in on a semi final spot now....

Re: Week 26 : Milan (Entry List)

Ciric def. Trusendi 6-3 6-0
Hanescu def. Naso 6-3 6-2
Robredo def. Mertens 6-3 7-6(3)

Alund vs Ciric and Robredo vs Hanescu semifinals. Both matches are interesting for their own reasons. I hope Victor goes on to take this title!

Re: Week 26 : Milan (Entry List)

Ciric couldn't beat anyone this year and now suddenly makes the SF Hopefully the winner of Robredo vs Hanescu will take the title

Re: Week 26 : Milan (Entry List)

I can't believe Ciric, really. His groundstrokes are pretty terrible, maybe one of the worst in the top 250! When I first saw him play with his joke of a one-handed backhand and his inability to defend from the back of the court I was like 'WTF, how is he ranked so far up?', then I saw his SERVE. Incredibly inconsistent though, saves his ranking with a couple of good runs per year.

His groundstrokes aren't that bad at all, on his day. It's just that day is rare. I've seen him play a few events either live or online, and he's rallied fine with decent claycourters. Everything comes from that serve though. If that's not working, his whole game comes apaart. He also seems incapable of playing on any other service. I watched his match for Wimbledon qualifiers, and it was like, he just tried to crash the ball off the return, either a winner, or more usually an unforced.

I don't expect he'll win today though, alund should be too consistent for him.

Yeah, Robredo should be uncontested in that final.

Re: Week 26 : Milan (Entry List)

i watched parts of both semis and indeed alund-ciric was just like a match you typically watch in average challengers, and robredo-hanescu had some atp material shots...
