Re: The Potito Starace fan club
Poto lost to Murray 2-6 3-6 in Rome. After that match he did not win a match nor set in singles until this last weekend in Davis Cup, where he defeated Blaz Kavcic of Slovenia 3-6 6-3 6-2 6-4 in the second rubber.
However, Poto reached the RG QF in doubles with Bracciali. He then paired with Bracciali to beat Kavcic/Zemlja 7-6 7-6 6-2 to win the tie for Italy. He and Bracciali have had some nice results this year as a doubles pair.
Poto has a 17-17 record this year in singles. He's in Bastad this week and defeated Reister 7-6(6) 6-3 in R1, coming from 2-5 down in the tiebreaker. He plays a qualifier Dasnieres de Veigy in R2, with the likelihood of playing Soderling in the QF. Hopefully Poto can go deep this week in Sweden.
