Yeah, very aggressive.
Last week he didn't feel that well and he was admitted to hospital with what seemed like bronchitis, but then they discovered he had a severe case of leukemia, he didn't respond to the treatment and he fell into a coma, he died this morning.

Wow... imagine that: You go into a hospital thinking you have a bronchitis, and then hear you have a leukemia and then.... don't ever come out of the hospital. What a shock that must be for the family.

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

I don't know what to say in the cases like this one... I haven't seen Luzzi on court because he was mainly a challenger player. I noticed once that he's had strange scorelines (for players of this type) in H2H with Fernando Vicente, two matches and 5 sets in tie-breaks:

2000 Kitzbuhel Clay (O) F.LUZZI 7-6(3) 6-7(2) 7-6(5)
2004 Trani Challenger Clay (O) F.VICENTE 6-7(8) 6-7(9)

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

Surprising and sad, and puts things into perspective like any death at a young age.

The only time I recall watching him play was against Nalbandian last year in one of these clay TMS events (Monte Carlo I think). He was also the guy that got a suspension for punching Koellerer in the face in 2005.
