Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Seppi has good variations and his backhand was solid against Fed and the forehand needs a bit more stick, but from what I saw against Gabashvili and Federer as well, these are good signs. I mean if a guy like Serra can win 2 titles, then Andy is more than capable of winning one.

He is onto Barcelona now and hope he can do some damage there.

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".

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Andreas wins 6-7 7-5 6-3 over the serving machine Karlovic. Not good that he dropped his serve so early in the first set, but the good thing was that he was able to break in each of the sets.

He will have a tricky match against Nieminen and both are similar kinds of players and I'd love to be able to watch this.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Another good win for Seppi and I feel we are beginning to see the Andreas of end of 2005 and beginning of 2006 again. Maybe that lost in Davis Cup woke him up. A very good win against Karlovic even if I did expect it. Now he has Nieminen... A defeat is likely, but if he wins then I think he truly is back in form.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Not the best day for Andy, he was leading 2 breaks in the 1st set against Nieminen and lost 6-4 and then at 5-6, he lost the serve and the match. Nieminen is a tough opponent and I think Andy is still a fair way from his best form.

He and King Oscar lost their doubles as well after winning a round, well I hope he gets a WC to Roma.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

As I said Seppi just seems to have that knack of losing even when in great positions. Mentally he really needs to mature, Im sure in time he will, but he seems a nervous player. His talent is unquestioned, one of the top 50 easily in terms of talent, even better, but his mentality is questionable.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Seppi should have got a WC to the main draw, but he got a WC to qualies instead. Just has to make it 4 qualifications to TMS events.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

After the shit with not getting a WC, he plays Spadea in the 1st round of qualies. This will be the best time to get to Spadea, as he came from slow Estoril to the fast courts of Rome and will have less time to adjust.

(1)Guillermo Canas (ARG) vs Alessio Di Mauro (ITA)
(11)Florent Serra (FRA) vs Thomas Fabbiano (ITA)

(2)Max Mirnyi (BLR) vs Igor Kunitsyn (RUS)
(13)Oscar Hernandez (ESP) vs Alberto Martin (ESP)

(3)Kristof Vliegen (BEL) vs Federico Luzzi (ITA)
(10)Teimuraz Gabashvili (RUS) vs Janko Tipsarevic (SRB)

(4)Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo (ESP) vs Davide Sanguinetti (ITA)
(8)Michael Russell (USA) vs Michael Llodra (FRA)

(5)Albert Montanes (ESP) vs Victor Hanescu (ROU)
(12)Vincent Spadea (USA) vs Andreas Seppi (ITA)

(6)Nicolas Massu (CHI) vs Alejandro Falla (COL)
(14)Ivo Karlovic (CRO) vs Stefano Galvani (ITA)

(7)Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) vs Fabio Fognini (ITA)
(9)Amer Delic (USA) vs Luis Horna (PER)

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Good stuff there from Andy winning 1-6 6-4 6-2. Slow start and didn't hold serve at all for the 1st set, then he got to 3-0 in the second and was able to hold it from there.

It will be tough against Montanes, but he can make it through to the MD again.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Yes difficult but still a good chance. I also feel he should have got a WC but maybe they were still p!ssed after he lost the davis cup opening rubber Anyway lets just hope he is in the MD, Montanes is difficult.

Yes, I am a bit biased when it comes to Andy , he should have got the 4th one, but the Davis Cup could be a factor.

Andy knows how to play qualifying matches and Montanes won't be easy, but Seppi is in his home country and if he gets his backhand down the line working well then he can have some success in this match.

I was saying to Genci before, his serve worries me and could hold him back, he doesn't serve high enough 1st serve percentages and doesn't use his height well.

Re: The Official Andreas Seppi Cheering Thread

Andy failed to qualify for Rome losing to Montanes 7-6 6-4, he actually started well and then dropped serve twice and Montanes served for the 1st set at 5-4, but Andy played another poor tiebreaker.

Lost the serve at 5-4 while trading breaks and now he's out and off to Hamburg where he is 4th alternate from the qualies.

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