Re: The Potito Starace fan club
Poto won a classic match with Chela in R2 of Umag 4-6 6-4 7-5 in over 2 1/2 hours, after being down *3-0 and *5-4 in the third, and match point on Chela's serve, which he saved with a return winner. He played without care after being down and just went for his shots, and hit a lot of dropshots, and it worked for him!
He hasn't won a match since then, however. Lost in three to Fognini in the QF, lost R1 in Kitzbuhel by retirement against Haase, and lost in doubles in straight sets with Volandri playing Rosol/Wassen. His ranking slipped out of the top 60 with his finalist points in Umag dropping.
Next up for Poto are Italian challengers, and the USO.
