Re: Still Trying to Win a Hard Court Match in Miami! (Qualifier First)

but it's still a shame that they prefer play these clay challengers instead to try to improve on other surfaces 63 62 against Sweeting it's really a bad scoreline....hope he will lose in R1 also in Napoli same thing for Starace

well you're right but what can I say? Pippo is convinced he can play a good tennis only on red clay

Re: Still Trying to Win a Hard Court Match in Miami! (Qualifier First)

I hate that mentality. His game is just fine for hardcourts, it's his brain that isn't. Yes the serve has and probably will always be pathetic, but that's no reason not to put forth his best effort on fast surfaces. He's just resigned to being an average player on everything but clay now, and it's a bit disappointing.

But what can we do? Pippo is Pippo

That's not good news, and could help explain his extra poor performance against Sweeting.

So no Nepali then?

Still injured and he will not play the Atp of Estoril...probably he will comeback in Montecarlo.

And if he also loses first round at RG

It's a really bad time for him to be injured. He could've picked any month outside of the clay season to be injured, but no.
