Re: Italian Tennis

Yes the performance of Seppi to beat Murray is great. He lost in the SF though to Bjorkman easily who is very good on grass, but in all, a very good tournament for Seppi and some confidence is back.

For the wimbly draw. Starace in current form will go out, especially on grass, but I hope Im wrong. Galvani I hope to advance. Bracciali has a difficult match, but with possibilities to advance. Volandri will go out Seppi I hope goes through and also Davide and Alessio have good chances to advance. Alessio with the tougher match up.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Re: Italian Tennis

All Italian men out now.

Bracciali was the last survivor in the third round and should be happy with his performance. Italian tennis is in a solid state, but we really need 1 or 2 of them to try and firstly break the top 50 and then aim for top 20. Especially Seppi who clearly has all the tools apart from nerve and also Starace has loads of ability, but sucks often enough.

Why cant Volandri try out a new servie technique also? If he had a better serve he would be able to go for top 20.

Re: Italian Tennis

Andrea Stoppini just pulled of an amazing win against Agassi 64 63 to reach the 3rd round in Washington. This is the best tournament of his career. Hes came through qualifying and now won 2 matches and will definitely move up from his ranking of 248.

Re: Italian Tennis

We need someone to get back into the top 50. If he regains form, then Volandri has the best chance, although he has 2 final spots to defend in Bucharest and Palermo after the US Open and if he doesnt his ranking can go down seriously.

Bracciali can make it back into the top 50 with some good form on the hard courts. Seppi doesnt seem to be improving lately. I hope Bolelli and Cipolla will make a push for the top 100 and Fognini a push for 150-200.
