Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

Horrible news.

Luzzi was definitely a character who loved the show and yes he and Koellerer both got suspended for having a punch up at a challenger.

I hope his family and friends can remain strong in shocking times like this and remember the positive times that they shared with him.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Wow. Poor guy. My condolences go out to his family and friends. RIP

"I think that now and until the end of my career, I can really play with my mind at peace, and no longer hear that I've never won Roland Garros." - Roger Federer

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

It would be great if someone could translate this to english!! from my understanding of italian (little :P) it says about the funeral arrangments. but i would also be interested to hear the quotes from Bracciali and Starace. Any help appreciated!


Luzzi, lunedi' i funerali ad Arezzo
Bracciali, 'non riesco a darmi pace, eravamo cresciuti insieme'


(ANSA)-AREZZO, 25 OTT- I funerali di Federico Luzzi, morto oggi a 28 anni per una leucemia fulminante, si terranno lunedi' alle 15,30 nella cattedrale di Arezzo.Intanto Daniele Bracciali e Potito Starace concedono solo poche parole ai giornalisti fuori dall'obitorio. 'Non riesco a darmi pace -dice Bracciali- eravamo cresciuti insieme ed eravamo veramente amici al di la' dello sport'. Starace: 'Sono a pezzi, lo avevo sentito nei giorni scorsi al telefono ed avevo capito che c'era qualcosa che non andava'.

Bracciali says- we grew up together and we were very close friends outside tennis. Storace says- I am devastated about the news, I knew that something was wrong last time I spoke to him on the phone, just a few days earlier.

When we play tennis, we both play with the same ball, but one of us places it better.

The funeral of Federico Luzzi, who died today at the age of 28, will be on Monday at 15.30 (CET) at the cathedral of Arezzo. Bracciali and Starace told the press only a few words. Bracciali says: "That situation doesn't leave me alone. We grew up together and were friends on and off the courts." Starace: "I'm totally knackered. I talked to him on the phone a few days ago and understood that it is a thing he wouldn't survive."

I left the first part because it was understood it was about funeral arrangements....but Starace did not know, when he called him, a few days earlier, that he was not going to survive. The article from Ansa says that he thought something was not right with him.....According to "il corriere della sera" he was at first diagnosed with pneumonia, only on Thursday they discovered a very acute advance stage of leukemia...and the rest we know

When we play tennis, we both play with the same ball, but one of us places it better.

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

Ok, thanks

just to confirm, Starace said that when he spoke to Luzzi on the phone, he understood that Luzzi WOULD survive....or WOULDN't survive..???

Do you mean that when Starace spoke to him on the phone he had no idea how serious Luzzi's condition was and that it would be life threatening??

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

Also i wonder what the ATP will do in regards to his ranking...will they take him off the rankings straight away or leave him there for a year until is points dissolve :S im guessing they would remove him next rankings update??

Starace said that he understood that "smth was wrong", he says nothing about surviving

Re: Federico Luzzi is dead

Potito Starace: "Era il mio migliore amico, vivevamo insieme da cinque anni. Ci allenavamo anche insieme. Era una persona unica, la sua morte mi ha distrutto: non ha avuto nemmeno il tempo di lottare. Ieri mattina ero con lui a fare colazione, ora stiamo tutti male".


Sad, very , very sad story.

It is going to be very hard for his family.
RIP Federico

"he was my best friend, we lived together for the last 5 years. We trained together. He was a unique person, his death destroyed me: he didn't even have the time to fight. Yesterday morning I was having breakfast with him, now we all suffer"
