Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Round 1:

Simone Bolelli v Alex Bogdanovic (WC)
Fabio Fognini v Marat Safin
(30) Andreas Seppi v Tobias Kamke (LL)
Filippo Volandri v Bobby Reynolds
Potito Starace v Sebastien Grosjean
(Q) Stefano Galvani v Jamie Baker (WC)

I suppose Bolelli, Seppi and possibly Galvani have a chance at going to R2. Starace will lose to Grosjean, but Seba has been getting injured alot so if he retires maybe... Fognini and Volandri will be out.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Great start for Seppi and Bolelli... especially Simo as it was a tough match. Volandri retired after 2 sets and Fognini went out in 3 sets to Safin.

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Yes Youzhny is not great on grass, but difficult still. Good stuff from Bolelli and Seppi to get to R3. Seppi against which Safin will turn up?

Galvani gave a very good match, but in the end lost in 5. Good tournament for him still.

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Wimbledon is the least favourite surface of nearly all Italians so we did well to have 2 in the 3rd round

Will still be commenting on the juniors. Gianessi looks likely to go through R1... currently a set and break up.

Re: Italians at Wimbledon 2008

Not only this, but also from the womens there was 5 out of 7 going through (1 exited to another Italian too)... so a good start for Italian players in general.

The next round is far tougher for most. Seppi will be disappointed if he flops to Gicquel though. He should fancy his chances of R3 after a huge win against Blake. Fognini and Starace had retired opponents, going any furhter than R2 would be minor miracle for 2 clear clay courters Bolelli against Tsonga, well if he gives 100% thats all you would ask. Should be disappointed not to be on a better court than court 3 (old court 2) though.
