Volandri is the 4th player in the Italian team

frustrating task for Gulbis, even if he won his two singles rubbers it probably wouldn't be enough

They predicted a bad day with heavy showers but do you know for sure that it's raining now? Oh I hate it that nobody knows anything about it at all

Look at this: http://www.tennisitaliano.it/edispor...9?OpenDocument
It says 'Diretta su Rai Sport Sat'...a satellite channel. So no livestreaming for us and apparently no livescores either...great

My friend said it's still raining, probably could only get one rubber done today.
